Who am I?

Jenn Vargas Pressman

Birth Photographer - Mom - Wife - Teacher - lover - Nurturer - Explorer - Researcher

As cliche as it is to say, "BIRTH changed me", it is true.  The process of BIRTH is the most life changing, mind blowing, near magical experience I have ever had.  After going through two drastically different births, yet experiencing similar overwhelming emotion, unrelenting strength, and unconditional love and support, I became infatuated with the process that has contributed to the growth of populations all over the world and the evolution of our species.  I went into labor one person, and each time came out another.  

Being a photographer, and a stubborn one at that, I went into my births with my camera in my hospital bag.  While I would have loved to have documented my own births, this was QUITE unrealistic.  Even expecting my husband to document my birth was unrealistic (though thank goodness he grabbed my camera and snapped some pictures.)  Now, while I cherish the few images I do have, they only tell a small part of my birth story.  I have huge gaps in my memory of those two days, and no images to help fill them in.  I thought I could never forget details of days filled with so much intensity, but I already have.   

Shortly after the birth of my second daughter, I vowed I would make it my mission to capture the unique stories of women bringing babies into this world.  I would document the determination of a laboring mother, the support of a caring partner or family member, the quickly changing face and color of a new baby.  SO HERE I AM.... Denver birth photographer, eager, willing, and able to capture your story.

What do others have to say?

Jenn was so amazing. She was so professional but at the same time, so warm and comforting. We only have a little preview of her work, we should get the rest back in a couple weeks, but I can tell already that we will LOVE and cherish these photos forever. She captured the raw emotion of labor, my husband and my connection, and the love for our daughter in her very first moments. I’m so grateful to have these images to share with the family who wasn’t there and to help remember the details so easily forgotten. It’s a true gift! We HIGHLY recommend Jenn!

If it wasn’t for Jenn, I would not have survived my son’s birth. My wife labored for 30 hours and she was by our side the entire time. Not only is she amazing at what she does with the camera but she made the overall experience of birth easier for me and my wife. A blessing to have her in the room for your family.

Labor was long and ugly. Jen was able to capture some of the most important moments we will ever have. It was wonderful having Jen in the room with us. Her compassion for the process and her job made it easier on us.
