The censorship of childbirth and the silencing of our narratives has disconnected us from our innate strength. Through honest & visceral imagery, I help mothers to take ownership of their birth experiences, and bear witness to their own unrivaled power.
All About Your

Austin Birth Photographer

Hi, I'm Kayla Grey

meet kayla grey birth photographer

That’s me there, holding my two youngest just minutes after my 5th was born into my waiting hands, unassisted on the bathroom floor. I figure if you’re going to invite me into such a vulnerable space, I should first share mine with you as well.

My obsession with and knowledge of birth extends far beyond my role as a photographer, and I humbly think that makes me an incredible asset to your birth team. I find the physiological process of birth endlessly fascinating, and I never want to stop learning about it. In this work, my knowledge and trust in birth means I feel completely at ease in your birth space.

I believe our stories are changing the world. I share my own because I’ve seen firsthand the ripple effect it can have, encouraging other women to re-claim their rightful power over birth as well.

Kayla photographed the birth of our last baby... and she told the story in a way I needed so badly, but couldn’t have possibly anticipated beforehand.

I didn’t have a photographer with our first two, even though I desperately wanted one. I had all the same reasons anyone has... nervous about one more person being there, photos of me naked, not sure how labor would go, do I want these photos “out there,” and we couldn’t afford it.

I have very few regrets about my life so far, but a lack of birth photography is on that short list... especially after experiencing what Kayla gave me with Theo’s birth.

Being able to go back and see his story, the bits I don’t remember, and having these incredibly impactful images to help me tell him how loved, how coveted, how wanted he was.... The images Kayla made for me helped fix a piece of me that was so completely broken, and I will be forever indebted to her talent and caring to do this day of my life justice.
