Who am I?
I am Pagan.
Lover of emotion, chaser of shadows. seeker of beauty in the every day. Shooting with my heart. Mastering the art of story telling.
This is me and this is who I am.
I am a wife. A mother. A bulldog lover. An artist. A creator. I am a glasses wearing, lover of light and embracer of chaos. I have 5 little people who eat all my food and call me Mum. I am totally obsessed with capturing their every move.
I capture real. The everyday moments that you never want to forget. It gives me heart eyes and gives me all of the feels.
This is my why:
Why birth photography? Why obsessed with the Fresh?
I could simply answer because. Because it is exciting, it is real, it is emotive, raw and sometimes chaotic.
Because child birth becomes a blur, it is a whirlwind that is forgotten so quickly. It is the little details that tell your story and give you something to leave for generations to come. It is as discrete or as intimate as you desire. This is my passion, it is what inspires me and drives to create.
I have had 5 babies and each story has been different. Two waters breaking in the middle of the night,, two labours, 5 c-sections., one planned, 2 rushed, 2 emergency. One baby came out blowing bubbles, one weeing everywhere, one content as could be just gazing at this brand new world, one stuck so far down the Doctor had his leg up on the surgical table just to get him out and one took the longest minute of my life to start breathing. As each day goes by they all blur in to one, I look to my birth story to remind me of the details, they fill in the gaps my mind has erased, I need them for me., they are a piece of me and they deserve to be told. They are my why. Each and every mother deserve to have her story documented, told and continued to be told for generations to come.
"We were lucky enough to have Pagan capture the birth of our second daughter and it was the best decision we ever made. The photos are priceless. I felt weirdly comfortable having her there, she is so good at her job. 150% recommend, you won’t regret it"
