Oklahoma City Birth Photographer and Doula
Stephanie Ralls is a Birth Photographer and Student Doula Serving the Oklahoma City Metro area
I cannot say enough about how thankful I am to have met Stephanie and had the pleasure of her capturing the birth of my son. She was at the hospital with me and my husband for 10 hours and was the most patient and selfless person the whole time. She captured moments that would have been forgotten easily with all the commotion and stress that was going on. I highly recommend that every mommy to be uses her services and orders an album. It is the most perfect collection of my birth photos and I will cherish it forever. Me and my husband are very pleased with Stephanie’s services and very thankful to have met her. I will definitely be using her talents again with my next births!
Three years and one birth later...
I just watched Harpers birth video and I can’t believe it’s been a year!! I’m just so in awe of your talent and passion. I’m so thankful for knowing you! I will always cherish the photos and video. Thank you!
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!
I don’t even know where to start! Stephanie was GREAT to work with. She always responded promptly and was so easy to talk to. When I went into labor she was ready to go when we needed her and got there in plenty of time. As far as the quality of her photos, I don’t even have words to describe them! She managed to capture the perfect emotions in the perfect lighting. I am so happy that we made the decision to hire a birth photographer for our son’s birth and extremely happy that we chose Stephanie as our photographer.
The day I went into labor, I was so worried I wouldn’t contact Stephanie in enough time to make it to my home for the birth of my second beautiful baby girl. I had a super fast labor and delivery with my first, so I was so happy Stephanie got to me quickly and in enough time to capture some truly breath taking images of me laboring, my birth team supporting me and the amazing water birth of my Olivia Faye. As requested, Stephanie captured some really great “money” shots. I wanted my pictures to be able to tell the story exactly how it happened and I was so pleased she succeed. She was present but was respectful of my birthing space and the quiet peaceful vibe I was going for. I’m so happy I’ll have these pictures to look back on and show my children one day. Thank you Stephanie for doing a fabulous job!
I am so thankful for Stephanie and the photos she took of our birth. Stephanie was always professional, sweet, and supportive. During the birth, she maintained a quiet but encouraging presence. I loved her for staying with me for all 24 hours of labor. The pictures I received are amazing, and I couldn’t be happier with her services. I will forever sing her praises and recommend her to everyone I know. (And definitely get the printed album, too! It’s one of my most treasured keepsakes- wonderfully made!)
