Hi, I am Darian Clouse.
I am a birth and baby photographer in Gilbert, Arizona. I live and breathe birth and babies! I'm not only interested in the photography side of birth but I'm very much intrigued by the medical aspect and even hope to become a labor and delivery nurse someday.
I'm a mom to my two girls- Indy, 2 1/2 and Briar, 8 months-and being their mom is the best role I could ever have! They're my greatest blessings and they are the drive behind what I do and I hope I can make them proud someday. My husband is my greatest supporter and he is so helpful with watching our kids when I have to make it to a birth or my newborn sessions on the weekends, builds set ups for me and loves me and encourages me through it all.
Birth photography is definitely my niche because I am pretty reserved and more on the quiet side and this lets me photograph something beautiful in the moment without having to pose anything- I simply photograph what I see and that is the beauty in it! You get to relive every detail of this special day from the big moments to the tiniest details. My job is to capture this special and once in a lifetime moment welcoming your baby earth-side so you can relive it for the rest of your life. As memories tend to fade, pictures never will.
“I can not express how happy we are with our decision to do a fresh 48 with Darian. I always knew I wanted the photos and there was no question that Darian has all the skills. But I was not sure I would feel up to the actual process of taking photos after giving birth. BUT IM SO HAPPY I DID!!! Darian made the whole experience relaxed and stress free. She got us some sneak peaks right away and then when we received the gallery we were blown away! So much variety and such beautiful memories!...”
“I've always loved birth photography, but wasn't sure if it was meant for me as I tend to be shy and reserved. My mind quickly changed after finding Darian's work. I knew the second I started scrolling through her photos that her goal is to tell a story in a compassionate and professional way; you feel it in person when she arrives at your baby's birth and it radiates through her work. Every time I look at my birth photos I am able to relive each moment and all the emotions that came with it!”
