Jaydene Freund- Cradled Creations Birth Photography
Co-founder of Canadian Birth Photographers, Jaydene has been photographing births since 2009. With nearly 100 births photographed, Jaydene has seen her fair share of birth photography challenges and victories. She has been featured on CBC, Global News, Globe and Mail, Buzzfeed, Huffington Post, Elle, Canadian Families, and was recently published. She will be teaching a course on natural light vs. flash at the upcoming Off-Call Conference in Florida, Feb. 2017.
Emily is an award-winning birth and family photographer in South Florida. She has been a newspaper reported on the crime beat, a high school journalism teacher, graphic artist, product designer and now feels at home behind the camera, telling stories. In the last five years since she began documenting families and births, she has been on CNN and the Today Show, published in magazines and blogs all over the world and recently a lecturer at a photography conference in Mexico.
A winning image, in her mind, is one that is honest and makes you feel something. Recently, Emily began a storytelling project about her mother, who has suffered from schizophrenia her entire adult life. Using film clips, photographs and writing, she seeks to reveal mental illness through a compassionate, honest and heartbreakingly honest look at her mother's life. Emily lives in Hollywood, Florida with her husband, two daughters and two dogs. She aims her camera at anything and everything that moves her- seagulls over the ocean, her clients, her kids, her family, her dogs- all of it- the whole story.
