Sacred, Honest & Empowering
Your Birth Day. The day that will change your life, forever.
The fire & strength that will move through your body as it prepares to birth. The support of your partner as you labor, together. The miracle of new life emerging before your eyes…priceless memories that can never be recreated.
I’m Cathlene with Azara Images, and I want to be by your side documenting the story of your baby’s first breath. I want to capture the moment you first lock eyes, and feel their touch on your skin. I believe that your birth experience will be one of the most transformational experiences of your life, and I believe that birth images have the ability to empower by allowing you to witness yourself in a time of immense strength.
For over two decades I’ve been documenting quiet moments of grace and beauty. In that time, I’ve learned to make beautiful images in any condition. From the whispers of an intimate home birth to the collective excitement of a hospital birth, I have refined my ability to be present and calm for my clients during the most important moments of their lives.
I specialize in putting my clients at ease so I can capture their unique, natural way of being and relating to one another. I am respectful, kind and reverent. At the end of a birth, I’m always told that I was easy and fun to work with, and an integral and loving part of my client’s birth team.
My style can be described as photojournalistic, genuine & classically beautiful. I am a Sacramento Birth Photographer who offers birth stories, maternity, welcome baby, breastfeeding and lifestyle newborn sessions throughout the greater Sacramento area, the Sierra Foothills and beyond. For more information, check out my FAQ section below, and featured full birth stories on my blog.
If you have any questions at all, I’d be happy to answer them. I believe it’s important to find a birth photographer you relate to personally, and aesthetically. I invite you to jump on a quick phone or video call with me- to feel into my style of relating, listening & creating. My goal is that you feel relaxed, confident and alive while working with me, and that I deliver a collection of honest, empowering images that celebrate the most important day of your life, your birth day.
