Meet Stephanie Ralls | Oklahoma City's Birth Photographer & Doula


Stephanie is a professional birth photographer and student doula located in the Oklahoma City Metro.

She is married to best friend and love of her life, Trey. Together they have two children and three fur babies (all of whom they are completely obsessed with).

Stephanie loves taking long walks through Target and dresses her cat up on Halloween. She typically spends her weekends playing D&D, binge watching Netflix, and making spontaneous trips to the OKC Zoo.

She describes her photographic style as genuine, intimate, and emotional.



I photographed my first birth in 2013 while pregnant with my son. If you've read my personal blogs - you know my husband and I had a bumpy ride on our way to parenthood. While TTC I became obsessed with all things pregnancy and birth related, which led me to birth photography.

After seeing women have beautiful, uninterrupted home births, I longed for similar. With the whirlwind birth of my daughter, I really, honestly, understood the way our babies come into the world affects us to our core. I began studying to become a doula in 2016, and completed my mentorship with Lauren of Sparrow Song Birth Services in 2017 while working towards certification with BAI. My goal is to help each woman I serve to feel empowered throughout her pregnancy, birth, and postpartum period.
 

My goal is to help women achieve exactly what we all desire - a healthy mom and healthy baby. I believe your mental well being is just as important as your physical health. The health care provider you've chosen will ensure your physical health is protected, and I'll be there to help protect your emotional well being.

I am your doula, I will help you create, protect, and honor your birth space.

I believe we owe it to our sons and daughters to care for ourselves properly and do our part in making the world a better place.

What clients are saying

OKC Birth Photographer
From our very first phone call I knew Stephanie was a perfect match for us. She spent a lot of time on the phone getting to know us, answering our questions, and being available to meet up for coffee before we even made the decision to sign a contract with her! She was very relatable and easy to talk to. 
     We had a complicated pregnancy and a long history of loss, and Stephanie was always keeping up with us and offering support throughout our entire pregnancy. On the day we induced, she came a few hours early because she had a feeling things might progress soon...and boy are we glad she did! Stephanie went above and beyond the call of a photographer by cleaning up after us, giving me juice boxes to keep up my energy, helping me get in a good laboring position, grabbing the fan at just the right moment, calling the nurse in when we were ready to push, and oh yeah, taking the most stunning pictures of our miracle baby’s birth!
     Even though Stephanie did a lot more than a typical photographer would have, she also was very respectful of our space and I honestly forgot she was there. A couple days after our little boy was born, without me even asking, Stephanie sent me a list of what happened at what times according to her camera’s time stamps so I could have them for my journal (you moved into transition at x time, he started crowning at x time, etc.). It might sound silly but this meant a lot to me, as I wanted to remember every detail. Before she left the hospital after our baby was born, she texted us two of the pictures she took, and those two beautiful moments she captured alone were completely worth every penny...I absolutely cannot wait to see the rest of them in a few weeks!!!
     We are really a very frugal couple...you know, the kind that doesn’t go out to eat, that washes and reuses Ziploc freezer bags, always buys the store brand...but I have to tell you, hiring Stephanie as our photographer was the best money we ever spent...Thank you so much Stephanie!
