On The Daring: Photographer + Doula Heather White on Life After Birth

"Our flaws are what make us interesting. Whenever I get a scar, I'm like, eh. Scars tell a story. It's the same thing with every bump and every line and everything. And you know, I'm middle-aged now, and I'm embracing the fact that lines are popping up on my face, and that's okay. I earned those lines. And so I feel like when I'm behind the camera, I'm not just a portrait photographer, I'm a documentary photographer. I'm just there with the studio lights, and I'm documenting the energy and the people.  I'm capturing those in-between moments and emotions. Nothing's posed. Everything is real. That's the sweet spot where you capture the real person." —Heather White

Documentary photographer and birth doula Heather White talks about life after birth, creating beauty out of tragic loss, changing social attitudes through human connection and emotional art, and regaining a sense of self as a parent. It’s serious stuff, yes, but we peppered it with lots of joy and humor — which is so reflective of Heather’s way of seeing and moving through life.

Heather talks about staying curious, always searching, and learning new things to feel alive and thriving. Her words remind me of what Ben Tyree has said on this podcast about never "arriving," respecting your craft and always pushing it forward. It's been amazing to see how the wisdom of our guests and community keeps connecting.
