Hometown: Fort McMurray, AB
If there is one thing I love to do, it’s to make connections with people. Through my work as a doula and photographer I get to do just that. Here’s a little about me; I’m a wife to an amazing husband and mother to a free spirited little boy. We got married in the summer of 2013 at Summerhill Pyramid Winery in Kelowna, BC. A short year later I was pregnant with my son. We decided to try to find a midwife willing to accept a traveling patient (we live in YMM and at this time the closest midwives were Edmonton area). Thankfully, we found HOPE midwives and the rest was history. Little M entered the world May 3rd 2015 and we haven’t looked back since.
I’ve been taking photographs since 2008 but started off 2017 taking a big step into the realm of professional photography. My passion is for the real life moments and capturing them in a cinematic like way. My style is moody, emotion provoking photography. This is why I love lifestyle and documentary sessions.
My passion for birthing women, couples, and families welcoming new life into their homes is what drives me to do what I do. I have been a Labour/Postpartum Doula since 2013. Taking my training through DONA International and CAPPA has given me great perspective. I have been working with the top doula cooperative in Fort McMurray since I began almost 5 years ago. We live in a unique community, robust with young growing families, but we do have limited resources for the birthing woman, unlike larger cities like Edmonton or Calgary. This makes our role as doulas that much greater. I work for individual families to ensure everyone is well informed, confident and empowered to give birth without the fear and stigma that is normally associated with childbirth.
I hope you feel the passion I pour into every part of my life. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me here http://jennabuffett.com/contact/ and I’d be more than happy to chat!
