This beautiful young woman was such a joy to work with. We met on location at a local park, immediately felt at ease with one another and had a great time walking, chatting and taking pictures at every pretty spot we came across.
A Birth Doula in training, Eleanor Kinsey came to me in order to create images that reflect her soft, natural, approachable personality…
Eleanor studied Embodied Consciousness at the Evergreen State College where she began her exploration of the wisdom and mystery of birth. She soon realized that supporting families through pregnancy, labor, birth and postpartum was calling to her. She then went on to receive a thorough doula training at the Simpkin Center of Bastyr University in Seattle, WA. Soon after graduating from Evergreen, Eleanor traveled to Kauai to further her birth studies at The Sacred Birthing School’s 18-week immersive doula training.
Eleanor deeply believes that every birth is sacred, and that families need to be lovingly supported in their birth experience, without judgment or opinion and rooting her care in evidence based support. It is her joy to do this work and to be witness to this magical journey however it unfolds.
In Eleanor’s spare time, she enjoys gardening, cooking, dance, hiking and making pottery.
