Here is what our parents are saying about their experience having us photograph/film their birth.

I can’t say enough about how much Noelle has blessed me with the gifts of memories and recording my son’s birth. Noelle was there from the start to the first trip home and even attended several ultrasounds and recorded them too. The best part about it all is I will forever have the very early part of my son’s journey recorded to treasure forever. It took so many years of fertility treatments to have my son so I knew I wanted to record the most pivotal moments of my life and the beginning of his and Noelle did that in the most amazing way. Every woman and every baby deserves a birth film and to have a woman in the room who makes you feel relaxed and can find her way to blend into the background and not interrupt the experience and to record it and edit it all in such a way that pulls at the heartstrings is amazing. Love you Noelle! Thank you for your amazing talent and the joy and happy tears it brings to me every time I watch it! xoxoxoxo

As a birth photographer myself, I had high expectations of how I wanted the birth of my second baby documented. Sweet Rain Media did not disappoint. Despite a lightning fast labor and delivery, Noelle arrived immediately and professionally. One of the few things that I was worried about was whether or not I would be able to keep my focus with all the extra people in my birthing space. Noelle managed to capture everything without catching my attention once. Her calm energy was a beautiful and welcomed addition. Now that our son is almost two, I find myself trying to trying to remember the details of that perfect day. With memories fleeting, I am SO thankful that all I have to do is play the video to remember my baby’s first breath, the look on my husbands face, and the sound of my daughter’s itty bitty voice as she became a big sister for the first time. If you are reading this Noelle, thank you for all that you do. You will never know how much this piece of art that you’ve created means to our family. I can’t wait to show it to our grandkids.
