I am so happy you are here. I am April: circle facilitator, birth doula, and photographer. I love supporting women during those significant moments of transition in life. I am a mother to three wonderful humans and one codependent dog. I was born and raised in Southern California and love hiking, camping, dancing, and coffee. 

My journey has led me to many different places; I became a mental health therapist before pivoting careers to include photographer, birth doula, and circle facilitator. Throughout my winding journey, helping and connecting with others has been on the forefront. This has always been my calling and I am here to hold space for you in whatever capacity is needed. I want to help you reconnect to the confidence within yourself, whether that be through circle gathering, photography, or as part of your birth support team. 

I believe that:

✧  Self love is a journey worth taking
✧  Rest does not need to be earned
✧  We are all doing the best we can; and can still change
✧  You know yourself better than anyone else
✧  We were not made to do motherhood alone

I am currently serving the Los Angeles, Pasadena, and Glendale areas.
