Isabel grew up in Norway, the land of majestic mountains, fjords, and pristine nature. Growing up in Norway shaped her photography style which is inspired by nature, soft light, and a minimalistic style. She lives and breathes photography and loves learning. She has shot professionally for 12 years and loves newborn and birth photography, and staying on top of what’s new and what can help her take better photos for her clients.
She has given birth to 3 children naturally, and has assisted at and photographed several births. She has a calming presence and captures photos that are true to you. “Birth is such an incredible event. Every time I witness a birth, I am amazed at how strong and regal women are, and how sacred motherhood is.”
Isabel is also a painter, foodie, lover of dancing, fashion, interior design, traveling, and climbing.
I’m Lindsey and the woman (wife & mother) behind Born Birth Photography in Salt Lake City, Utah. I’m originally from Austin, Texas and say things like “y’all” & “fixin’ to”, minus the Southern accent. I rarely wear make-up and could spend hours sipping a chai latte lost in meaningful thought or conversation. I believe knowledge is power and make my most important life decisions from a place love and instinct.
A lot of love goes in to every Birth, Just Born, & Breastfeeding photography session. A full service experience leaving you with high quality images that celebrate your birth story & breastfeeding journey. Years from now, you’ll relive your story through a series of images of one of the most wondrous & soulful experience life offers. I’m here to tell the stories of all women and show that every birth is beautiful. If I can somehow expose women to all of their birthing options, shift gender inequalities, and lessen the stigma surrounding motherhood, birth, & breastfeeding–even just a little, then my heart is full.
P.S. I am currently offering discounted portfolio sessions for Birth, Just Born, & Breastfeeding photos. Please check out the Services & Pricing page on the website for details.
I am a wife and mama of two. I specialize exclusively in maternity, birth, and lifestyle newborn photography!
I have a deep love for laughter, babies, and good food. I love TJ Maxx, baking, hot showers, Netflix, and anything coconut. When I’m not behind the camera, I can be found chasing my two babies around and aimlessly roaming the aisles of Target.
I believe in genuine, real moments. Those small, fleeting moments that are easily forgotten. Capturing the raw emotions of those around me is my passion. My style is pure, organic, simple, and fresh. Although I appreciate all types of photography, I have a thing for Motherhood. Nothing makes me feel more fulfilled than capturing every new stage of it, from pregnancy to delivery to cuddling up with your toddler watching Trolls for the millionth time. I love it all. It’s hard and messy, but so beautiful and so worth remembering.
The moment your baby is born is one that can never be experienced again. Make it the best it can be – your birth, your way. With over 16 years of experience, I can help you plan for, prepare, and navigate your birth experience to make it be a good one.
