We both had captured some amazing birth stories via photos and film but we the only people that had ever seen our work were our clients! We believe birth is beautiful and that our photographic art should be shared and celebrated. So three weeks before First Friday in Chinatown in Honolulu on 4.7.17, we decided what better way to launch the Hawaii Birth Collective than with a birth art exhibit! We secured our venue, the gorgeous office building of Honolulu Office Centers and we began curating our art exhibit, choosing images, printing photographs and inviting guests.

Amber designed all of the print collateral and it looked so amazing! We had signups for birth worker to join the collective, we had info on the collective and signage for people who joined us from the streets for First Friday.
