The owners of each of these Perth based businesses are dedicated to serving people like you… to empower, strengthen and guide. I highly value the extraordinary work they do to support women and men in all areas of their perinatal journey.
Cat is a Perth based birthphotographer with a passion for capturing the beauty and emotion of birth. She firmly believes that your baby’s birth is a story worth documenting. There will be moments of strength, exhaustion, vulnerability, happiness and so much love! And many tiny details, as insignificant as they may seem, that you will be ever so grateful to have captured to reflect back on and share with your loved ones. Cat’s stunning image features in the background of the title of this page and throughout my blog. Find out more about Cat’s work.
