Secondhand Exposure Photography
Hi! I’m Jillian Camisasca-Lopina. I’m a birth doula and maternity, birth, and family photographer in Tampa Bay. I capture emotion, create beautiful photographs, and accompany families through the pregnancy and birth process.
As a doula, I provide educational, emotional, and physical support to families throughout pregnancy and labor. I’m thrilled to be in a profession where I can support and empower other women. My goal is to nurture every family and help them feel heard, respected and empowered. I’ve attended a wide variety of births, from home birth to cesarean sections, and I am certified as a labor doula by PRODOULA.
In photography, my passion lies in maternity (baby bellies!), documenting birth (from labor to postpartum), and family portraits (so fun). I can be found photographing expectant mamas, babies, couples, and families, capturing the joy in all of us. I began my love of photography in a darkroom in northern Virginia. Grounded in the techniques and skill found in traditional analog photography, I have the technical know-how to create beautiful photographs. Combined with my creative spirit, I find so much joy in connecting with people and creating gorgeous photographs!
As a doula and birth photographer, I’m actively involved in the birth community here in Tampa, serving as the President the Tampa Bay Birth Network, a local non profit organization.
I also have a podcast + portrait project called Working Birth, highlighting the amazing work of birth professionals. You can listen on iTunes, Stitcher, and the www.workingbirth.com .
