There is so much beauty in birth that is taken for granted, and being able to show that beauty is just amazing. I am in love with my job. -Megan Bowen
I have a great passion for learning the complexities of the human soul and revealing personalities and life on film. Everyone has a beautiful story to tell and it’s a complete honor to document the ever fleeting moments of life.
I got to witness my first birth at the early age of 10 and was memorized by the whole experience. I attended college in hopes to become a midwife, but poor course counseling pushed me back to focus on my main passion, documenting life.
Since 2009 I have continuously been educating myself in photography and the physiological and psychological process of birth.I received doula training from DONA international in 2013 and it has served to help me document births to their fullest potential. The birth of a child into the world is a miraculous event. I am completely honored to capture each and every one of the miracles I get to witness be born.
Fun Facts: I was born in California, raised in Atlanta, Georgia and have a small collection of vintage cameras. I have two spunky cats named Archer and Seneca with my high school sweetheart. I am a competitive strength athlete and compete in United States Strength Lifting Federation. I am working on my professional barbell coach certification and have my own coaching practice where I enjoy helping people attain stronger bodies and minds. I enjoy the finer things life has to offer: chocolate, coffee, crafting, and lifting heavy things.
