I'm Bergen

.

I am a mother to three wild children born right here on our small homestead in Northern Virginia. I married their Papa, my childhood sweetheart, more than a decade ago and I’ve now spent more of my life with him than without. 

.

I am a birthworker and founder of Two Rivers Childbirth. My heart and hands are at home walking beside families as they journey into and through parenthood. Birth is as human as we get. 

.

I have a fine arts degree and the camera has always been my preferred tool to make beauty of the chaos in my head. I fall a little in love with each family I photograph.

.

Water and skin are my two favorite colors.

.

I'm a community builder and a storyteller and I have way more browser tabs open than is probably healthy. I believe in connection over perfection, always, and that we weren’t meant to do this parenthood thing alone.

.

I can't wait to tell your story.
