“Esther Edith is a truly gifted servant of women in their childbearing season.  From absolutely amazing and compassionate doula care, to educating and supporting families, to capturing truly real photos of the moments in labor, the transition of life from womb to Earth.  I have been richly blessed by having Esther by my side for my long labor.  As a VBA2C mama of many, I needed a doula that understood and supported my unique birth history and desires, as well as my faith.  If you are searching for a phenomenal birth doula to walk through your story along with you, and capture all the moments to treasure, look no further than Esther Edith.”  ~ Andrea Roltgen, local Childbirth Educator & Birth Doula, March 2017

“Esther speaks with both gentleness and strength. As my doula she created pockets of courage where I would’ve floundered and felt afraid. After the birth she captured moments that even two weeks later were all but forgotten. My mouth fell open as I view the pictures and the resplendent joy that would’ve slipped unremembered into the past. You have no idea how much you forget until someone captures it.” ~ Bethany, 2017 gray line

“I LOVE Esther. She has such a gentle, loving and kind spirit about her that just makes it easy to trust her! This summer she captured some very treasured nursing pictures of my son and I (as well as some business head shots) and we were both just super comfortable in front of her and her camera. Not only is she professional but also loving and caring and incredibly talented. Esther is a huge asset to our community- for her photography and doula skills.” ~ Morgan Brooks, local Spokane Doula, 2017 gray line

“Choosing a photographer can be such a challenging task, but Esther’s portfolio speaks for itself. If you have never had lifestyle photography you will be a believer after seeing the images captured, real life, real love, real emotion that takes you back to that time and place. I highly recommend Esther Edith Photography for not only her quality work that you will be able to display around your home like art work, but also her professionalism and character. She worked patiently in the background capturing our children’s creative side, but also pulled us in for the occasional group shots that I was looking for as well. This worked well with my children’s short attention span and I am so pleased with our images. One of the best parts about Esther’s experience and creative eye is I did not have to spend hours searching for perfect posed ideas and yet we still have a large selection of photos that both my husband and I loved. No fake smiles from the kids, but true genuine interaction and happiness that you can feel by looking at the photos.” ~ Lila McDermid, 2016 gray line

With the support of my husband, family, friends, and my mid-wife I thought I had everything I needed for this birth. However, I wanted this day to be very special, and I certainly wanted to cherish it with beautiful photography. But who to choose? I went on a quest for a photographer who can understand and respect the process of a home birth and that would not make it stressful for me. So it was, I found Esther searching the web and truly it was the perfect match. Since the first time I met with Esther, I automatically clicked with her. Not only was she a photographer but a Douala as well, truly all the signs were pointing into hiring her. To further this “miracle” as I like to call it, Esther happened to know my mid-wife. I talked to my mid-wife of what she knew about Esther, and she had nothing but to say nice things of her. There was no doubt left, I wanted Esther to be part of this beautiful moment in my life. Her care and attentiveness before, during, and after the birth were far beyond from what words can express, for it was like she was that old friend you always have that one can rely on. Anytime I needed something, Esther was available and always ready to do things will love and care. She took the time to be there for me, bringing me my favorite dessert, and above all she shared the labor pains with me always keeping calm yet understanding my fatigues. During the birth, she carried herself with such delicacy that one can hardly tell when she is taking pictures. For she takes modest photos, and is very professional in this are of her job. Esther personifies a very solicitous, loving, giving, attentive, person that would ease the process and help you create a stress free environment during the beautiful moment of your birth. Just remember it is good to have that friend that you can always rely on! I never though I was going to need a Doula when my midwife told me my husband said will be fine because the midwife is coming with and assistant but when the time came having Esther it was such a blessing we felt so sorry when we found out she was moving because we set out minds to have her in all of our future births.” ~ Florines, Birth Doula and Photography Services, 2015

gray line Newborn Lifestyle Photography by Esther Edith Photographer and Doula


When I discovered I was pregnant, I set out to find the perfect photographer to capture the our precious moments and Esther was that photographer. She has an amazing knack for catching the most intimate, genuine moments. Moments that brought many smiles and some tears to the eyes of family members far away. There are honestly no words to express how thankful we are for her help in capturing the whirlwind that is being pregnant and welcoming a little one home. On top of it all she was truly a pleasure to work with. She worked tirelessly with me to pin down a maternity photo shoot location, remembered my due date/guess date (and sweetly posted about it on Facebook), and puts her heart and soul into her art. We hope to work with Esther for years to come!” ~ Alexandria, Maternity and Newborn Photography, 2015

Esther was amazing to work with!  One of the best features of our pictures was the location with the lighting, which was all her idea.  It is clear she truly enjoys what she does!  My husband and I had a lot of fun with her, and hope to be able to use her again in the future. We appreciate Esther’s incredible generosity.  We won the maternity session give away, and even though we were not a paying customer, Esther still went above and beyond during our photo shoot! If Esther has any suggestions regarding location, you should listen to her because she has a great eye for good lighting.  We would highly recommend Esther!  She will work hard to be sure you capture priceless memories!” ~ Nathan & Falon, Maternity Photography, 2015

“I’m so happy with the maternity, birth and newborn photos that Esther took for my family. She was very generous of her time– both in our sessions and in her editing. I’m grateful that I can look back at my big belly, my first moments with our daughter and all of her tiny details for years to come. I look forward to sharing the beautiful photos with my daughter as she grows up!”

Testimony of experience with Esther Edith as your Birth photographer:
“Esther has an amazing talent. Not only is she a wonderful photographer with a keen eye for capturing light, priceless moments, and personalities, but she also has a gift in the manner she conducts her work. She was able to put my husband at ease; he is normally someone who would be so uncomfortable with a portrait session, but Esther was able to capture him perfectly!  

A birthing shoot is way different than any other kind of photography, obviously. We had originally planned on it only being us, our midwives, and one friend, but Esther was the best addition we could have had. I hardly knew she was there except when she was being gently reassuring with her beautiful smile. She has such a kind spirit and having her there with us for this sacred event was a gift. She was respectful and gave us our space when needed without us having to ask… (Read more here)
