Cathlene stubbs | Professional Photographer

"Hi, I'm Cathlene with Azara Images! I've been photographing for over twenty-five years. In that time, I have learned to make beautiful images in any condition. From the quiet of an intimate birth to the collective excitement and activity of a large family session, I have refined my ability to be present and calm for my clients during the most important moments of their lives.

I am a “Birth Becomes Her” certified birth photographer, having trained under the fabulous birth photographers and teachers of the “Birth Becomes Her” network, Monet Nicole and Jennifer Mason. My style can be described as photojournalistic, genuine & classically beautiful. I specialize in putting my clients at ease so I can capture their unique, natural way of being and relating to one another. At the end of a birth, I'm always told that I was easy and fun to work with, and an integral and loving part of my client’s birth team.

I offer birth photography, maternity, fresh 48, breastfeeding and lifestyle newborn sessions in the Northern California Foothills, the Sacramento Valley and the greater Bay Area. All of my birth packages include a full, private, online gallery of your entire birth story. I also offer a variety of custom archival prints and albums, from boutique heirlooms to clean, simple and affordable printed products.

Check out my website to view recent birth and family work, as well as blogged birth stories and my Birth FAQ page.

If you’d like to see an example of a full birth story gallery or get more information on exact pricing for your birth story, please get in touch with me. I’d be happy to show you full galleries and personally answer any questions you may have.

My goal is that all of my clients feel relaxed, confident and alive while working with me, and that I am able to deliver a collection of images that celebrate the very essence of the most important moments of their lives."
