Meet Dorota

The days immediately following the birth of your child, whether it’s your first or not, can feel like a whirlwind.  Families are adjusting physically and emotionally to their new normal.  Some moments are beautiful and others are messy. 

I am honored that families trust me during this most vulnerable and formative time!  I get to support parents when they need guidance, a listening ear or an extra set of hands.  I get to snuggle newborns when parents need rest.  And, I’m privileged to utilize my photography skills to capture those beautiful (and sometimes messy) unstaged moments.  Families can then enjoy and remember the early days of baby that often seem brief and blurry.   

My many years of experience as a nanny, doula and itsy bitsy yoga instructor have prepared me to support parents and connect authentically with young children.  A native of Poland, I now call Richmond, VA “home” and love supporting our diverse and increasingly progressive community! 

I welcome the opportunity to meet with new and expectant parents to evaluate if we are a good fit for one another and share more details about my background and services as a postpartum doula and documentary photographer.   

With Gratitude,
