Breastfeeding portraits| North Carolina breastfeeding portrait photographer| North Carolina birth photographer| North Carolina doula| Love at First Sight Photography & Doula Services| Member of New Creation Birth Services


The physical act of breastfeeding is more than the quantity of milk that is supplied, as you will find when you hold your baby in your arms. Breastfeeding is warmth, nutrition, and love all rolled into one. Understanding and appreciating the signs of knowing when your baby is getting enough to eat is the one of the most important things you can learn. If you have any concerns regarding your baby, they should be addressed with your health care provider.

To find out more information about breastfeeding head on over to the La Leche League webpage.

Meet the lady behind the camera and double hip squeeze| North Carolina birth photographer| North Carolina birth photography| Sarah Stanley from Love at First Sight Photography & Doula Services| Sarah Stanley New Creation Birth Services| North Carolina Doula

Meet the person behind the camera and double hip squeeze 💕

Sarah was called into the birth world when she was serving in the United States ARMY. After giving birth to her first, she followed and supported three of her fellow soldiers through their birthing journey. At that time she had no idea what a "Doula" was but felt this is where the Lord needed her to be. After serving her country, Sarah felt led to guide others into self advocacy and to empower women by trusting in themselves and bodies. She started on the journey of becoming not only a Doula but a professional photographer and later specializing in birth documenting. After attending DONA training and completing in 2014, Sarah was able to do hands on work with teens and young moms with the YWCA before climbing on board as a trained professional Doula.
Sarah is blessed with an amazing husband, three children and two angel babies. Sarah loves her animals and enjoys the simple things in life like spending time with her family and serving at her church. When she is not busy at a birth you can find her most days with a camera glued to her hand documenting the world around her, homeschooling her children or outside basking in the sun.
Sarah's passion, love and excitement are displayed in her work daily. She believes pregnancy and childbirth are a beautiful experience, that not only results in the birth of a precious baby, but the birth of a mother and family. Sarah's mission is to support mothers in communication with their birth team, and teaching mothers to trust their instincts, not only through their birth journey, but into parenthood as well.

Fresh 24 photography

This sweet little girl was just hours fresh and my was her family eager to meet her especially her two older brothers.

This poor mom suffered from Hyperemesis Gravidarum and all that keeps playing in my mind is when I walked in the room and gave her a big hug and asked how she was feeling, she said with a huge smile on her face " I feel so at peace". If you would like to read more about her journey please head over to her blog post!

Pregnancy and infant loss awareness month| Foot prints left on our hearts| I have foot prints on my heart| Love at First Sight Photography & Doula Services

Pregnancy & infant loss awareness month 

Last month was pregnancy and infant loss awareness month. I got to spend an amazing afternoon building up a village with a few local families. Lots of hugs, smiles, and a few tears as we talked and remembered the little ones that were lost to soon. We ended the day with a sweet sky lantern release and unity string circle.

A few of the families have since had 
A "rainbow baby" which is a baby that is born following the loss of another baby.

In the real world, a beautiful and bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better.
The rainbow does not negate the storm, but acknowledges it and creates something beautiful. Storm-clouds might still be overhead as the family continue to cope with the loss, but something colorful and bright has emerged from the darkness.

"I will not cause pain without allowing something new to the born, says the lord." Isaiah 66:9

 Thank you to all that came out, supported and made a village. I am looking forward to doing this next year and keeping not only mine but your little ones memory alive <3  

A special thank you to Rachel Fann from Seasons of Life Photography for coming out and helping me document this event. To find out more about her services please clink the link above
