Here you’ll find images from various personal journeys that my families have graciously allowed me to share with you. They also represent stages in my journey as a birth photographer in Perth. I hope you’ll find them invigorating, raw and inspiring. More importantly, if you’re a mother-to-be, I hope you can see a little of yourself reflected in the courage, grace and beauty of these incredible women.

the words Amber May are written across an illustration of a flower that curves to the left.
