Mat did our wedding photos. I honestly never thought of myself as betting photogenic; our photos are beautiful. 4 years later and I still enjoy looking at them. Highly recommended!!!

Mat perfectly captured our wedding day. He was fun and easy to work with. He was always in the right place at the right time but didn't distract from the events of the day. We love our photos and will cherish them forever! Would highly recommend this professional service. We were also impressed that we received our wedding photos promptly within a couple of weeks.

It was a very cold day, wind whipping the snow around, and Matt asked us how long we wanted. He didn't rush and made us feel very comfortable. Got amazing picture of my son who loves to move and I think has changed my husbands opinion on family pictures. Thank you so much! More...

We had a family session, it.was. awful.

There were tears, bribes, and mild threats made. I left frustrated and sure there were no frame worthy photos.
I said we were never doing that again.....
I got my photos back today, and I cried.

I LOVE them! I love so many I don't know if my wall can hold how many I want to frame!
Mat made magic out of my families mess.

Mat is a multi faceted photographer that has done everything from my wedding photos, band shots and live shows. I love how creative and open he is to trying things out of the norm. He will literally bend over backward to get a different angle. Highly recommended his services and his lovely wife's as well, they are a great team. More...

5 stars are not enough to explain how amazing Acorn and Oak is.
Mat has this way about him that makes every session just feel like an adventure.
He has a genius mind and tricks to get you to act natural, and laid back, even when you feel uptight and stressed wanting the perfect photos.
Even if you have a "disastrous" session (kids won't sit still, your husband is beyond awkward, the weather isn't cooperating etc), I promise you that will not be the outcome when you get your photos.
I have nothing but the highest praise to give.
100% recommend!!!

I can't say enough great things about the experience my son and I had with Mat. He was so patient and willing to chase after my little one who never stops moving. My son lives with a severe disability (Autism Spectrum Disorder) which makes things more difficult. Mat was able to capture the essence of who my son is which has never been done before. I can't believe how beautiful the photos turned out and I would whole hearted recommend Acorn and Oak Family Photography. I was given a gift I could have never imagined. I will cherish the 3 HOURS Mat spent with us for a very long time. I will most definitely be a return customer! More...

Highly recommend. Mat has a way about him that's bright, calm & charming. He's a genuinely warm human and that glows through his work. He's done nursing portraits for me and it was 0% creepy to have this particular male photog up in your boobies and I love love my pictures. Highly recommend. Did I say highly? Highly. More...

Mat is pretty much a photo miracle worker. When we arrived at the Conservation Area for our 2016 Christmas mini's we were late, hadn't eaten breakfast, had to leave our coats on because it was too cold to go without, and were generally miserable. Somehow Mat managed to capture beautiful moments anyways and we consistently receive compliments on the photos he took for us that day. We'll be booking again without a doubt. More...

My fiancé and I had an incredible experience with Acorn and Oak Family Photography for our engagement shoot! He made us feel comfortable even in front of the camera and truly captured our passion for each other.

He was enthusiastic and warm and delivered amazing quality photos in an outstanding time frame! We can't wait to continue working with him for the wedding!

There aren't words to express how much we LOVED having Naomi as our birth photographer.
She was very accommodating of our wishes, and our needs.
Birth is such a personal moment and to have someone like Naomi there for it was more than I could have ever hoped.
100% would not give birth again without her there. �

Naomi was the perfect addition to my fourth birth. She captured the most emotional moments and memories that I want to remember forever, and she helped document our precious son’s entrance to the world. Don’t let a birth go by without hiring a talented and caring birth photographer like Naomi - you’ll be so grateful you did! � More...

Naomi went above and beyond our expectations as our birth photographer. Our pictures are amazing and I'm so grateful she was able to attend the birth of our son. If we are ever blessed to welcome any more babies into our family, we won't hesitate to contact Naomi to capture our birth. More...

As a doula and childbirth educator, I have a great passion for all things birth-related and have long admired the artistry of birth photography. Despite this admiration, I had never hired a birth photographer myself for several different reasons: I worried about the impact the presence of a photographer might have, I worried about the cost, and I worried that the resulting photographs would be awful.
When I found out I was pregnant with our fourth child, I began reconsidering my apprehension about birth photography because I had a strong feeling that this would be my last birth and I really wanted it to be captured in a way we hadn't had with our other births. I am a private person and I have a particular set of beliefs when it comes to how I give birth, so I knew I would have to find a photographer who could honour my wishes before welcoming them into my space.
I contacted Naomi early in pregnancy and asked for a meeting just so we could discuss birth preferences and photography. She was happy to make time for me and spent our first meeting listening to my concerns and asking questions so she could better understand my vision. She encouraged me to take my time in selecting a photographer and I contacted her several times with additional questions over the proceeding days, to which she always provided a prompt reply.
Once I had made my decision to hire Naomi, she set up a meeting in my home to test the lighting conditions (I was planning a home birth lit only by candles). This was done both to familiarize Naomi with my house and to reassure her and I and we were both very happy with the results.
When it came time to give birth, Naomi arrived shortly after being called at 1am. She had invited me to call her much sooner in my labour, but this was the timing that felt best for me. I didn't even notice Naomi enter the room. Her presence was gentle and quiet and did not disturb me at all. She provided extra support when my 2-year-old got a little rambunctious right around the time I was transitioning. Naomi spent a couple of hours with my family and I after the birth, during which time she helped out with the kids, snacks, and tidying up, as well as taking photographs. Most appreciated!
Despite having a very busy schedule and a family of her own to take care of, Naomi had our photos ready for us very quickly and it was a joy to view them with my family. It is truly incredible having a third-person perspective of this amazing event! Having Naomi's services was well worth the extra cost; the photos themselves are truly priceless.
From the time we first met until the finished photos were delivered, Naomi was kind, courteous, and professional. Her integrity and spunky spirit made it very easy to connect with and trust her. Naomi seems to have a great "eye" and was able to produce some remarkable photos of my daughter's birth. I would recommend to anyone who is preparing to give birth that they consider hiring a photographer. And Naomi would be at the top of my list.

Beautiful Naomi was my birth photographer for the birth of our first born, Ruby Jay. Not only did she introduce me to a world that would forever change the course of my professional life...but she also provided my husband and I with images we could not possibly express our true appreciation for , even with 1000 words. Images that helped me OoOo and aAAAaaaaA and heal and process and relive every moment we met our daughter. She was professional, incredibly reliable, so kind, so patient, so generous and enthusiastic - if you are considering hiring Acorn & Oak do it now now now now!!!! More...

5 stars doesn't seem like enough. Naomi did an amazing job capturing our home birth with #4. I felt so comfortable with her, my older kids thought she was so nice & the photographs are just beautiful, I will cherish them always! Thank you �

Naomi was exactly who we needed at our birth. I can't imagine anyone else being so invested in our "out of the ordinary" birthing efforts. She blended in when needed and played a crucial role active role when needed. My birth was completely natural but I still missed out on a lot of moments that she captured and was able to share with me. I was so happy to watch my entire labour and birth once it was all over. I am able to relive one of the happiest days of my life over and over again. I'm happy to call this talented woman a true friend! More...

When I saw Naomi's fb page and the beautiful pictures she has captured, I knew I wanted to hire her for my third and final birth. I had so much more than just a birth photographer in Naomi. She is a caring, supportive, genuine soul, a truly valuable member of my birth team. I have beautiful memories and such personal photos of my husband, son and myself that I will cherish forever. I highly recommend Acorn and Oak Birth Photography, you will be glad you did! More...

I've always loved birth photography, but had never seriously considered hiring a birth photographer myself as I've always preferred my births to be as quiet and low key as possible. This time around however, knowing that this would likely be my last labour and birth, my desire to have this precious chapter of our story illustrated won out. I have so treasured my pregnancies and births and wanted to be able to have pictures to look back on. And so...NAOMI. :) More...

When you invite Naomi from Acorn & Oak to be a part of your birth team, you are not just hiring a photographer. You are getting a kind, down to earth, reliable birth professional, sure to provide calm and comfort during your birth journey.

Naomi captured moments of the birth of second daughter that I could only dream of having of my first. Do not waiver on adding this amazing, loving woman to your delivery space. She will provide you with images to love forever and a friendship to treasure.

Last night while taking a walk with brogan I was reflecting on my birth story and how much I love telling it .
And I realized that telling your birth story can be one of the best (or worst) moments in our lives and no matter how many years go by you will never forget a single detail about it .
Mothers can retell that story till their blue in the face and never get tired of it cause it's theirs.
And with every great story , it is always better with visuals . Illustrations to bring the story to life . To add detail And emotional volume .

Thank you for being my illustrator to the best story I've ever made . This is how people should view birth photography.

Love ��

Where to begin...I considered Birth Photography with my son because I wanted to have that moment with me forever and my daughter who was 9 at the time wanted to be in the room and I wanted her reaction as well-this brought me to Acorn and Oak Birth Photography.
After meeting Naomi for the first time, I felt so comfortable with her, like I've known her for years which made my decision so easy and luckily for us she was available to take us on-we sure lucked out BIG time! Naomi not only felt like someone I've know for years but she made my daughter and husband feel super comfortable as well and my daughter LOVES her.
She went above and beyond always checking in with me to see how the pregnancy was going and offering support and guidance throughout pregnancy, birth and even after the birth. She is a wonderful, kind, knowledgeable and talented women who we were lucky to have with us during this wild ride-I couldn't imagine doing it without her!
I would highly recommend Naomi and would absolutely not hesitate to have her capture another birth for us if we are able. I am in love with our photos and video!

Where exactly do I start!?!? Honestly a 'birth photographer' isn't the right name for Naomi. She really is so much more then a photographer. Let's call her the Super Amazing Birth coach / the most fantastic photographer of labour & birth!

Naomi became such a valued part of my birth plan and my birth support from the day we met. Honestly most days it felt like she was my biggest fan, always encouraging me to reach my goals and achieve my dream birth. She truly became such an amazing friend.

As for her work.. well clearly she's flipping amazing! Not a day has gone by where I don't re live the moment when my daughter was born. You really cant put a price on happiness. And the amount of love and happiness that fills my heart when I look back on these photos is indescribable.

I really can't thank you enough. I really do suggest everyone hire Naomi as your Birth Photographer. Birth happens so fast, and everything seems like such a blurr... what an amazing feeling it is to be able to re live that beautful moment you welcome your loved one into the world!

I have to admit mine and my husbands initial perspective on the idea of birth photography were a little conflicting. After much persuasion I convinced him that although the birth of our child, the moment we had been working towards for the past five years, was immensely personal I also didn't want to have to relive the experience from someone else's perspective. I wanted to be able to recall my own experience, through the eye of a lens.

We didn't know what to expect or how we would feel having someone with us during a time of such vulnerability, witnessing our most initiate moments. Naomi is so much more than a photographer, she was a part of our birthing team. She was never a witness to our moment, but a part of it. Naomi was a constant support to both me and my husband, she tended to us at times when a reassuring voice or ice chips were needed and faded into the background during other times when Mark and I needed it to be just us, allowing for the intensity of the moment. She was by our side, an active participant, all the while capturing every aspect of our journey leading to the arrival of our son and his introduction to the world.

Mark's perspective
Days after we received our video, that Naomi had compiled, we sat in our living room moved to tears as we watched. Although Mark was resistant at the idea of birth photography he will now openly express that "hiring Naomi was well worth it, and is glad that despite resistance we went ahead with birth photography".

Working with Naomi, it is evident that she is truly passionate for what she does. We couldn't recommend acorn and oak birth photography more.

I hired Naomi for my birth as I regretted not getting anything done for my daughter.. I was a bit skeptical if it was worth it, and had trouble justifying the amount.
But after she made my video and I received all my photos I didn't regret it for one second.

The photos are raw and wonderful.. the video is by far my favorite...it perfectly played out my labour in a wonderful timeline and something I can share with people.
Thank you!

I knew when I got pregnant I wanted to somehow capture the birth of our firstborn child. I didn't even know there was such a thing as birth photographers until I googled it! haha. When I met Naomi I knew right away this is what I wanted. My fiance and I felt so supported and comfortable with her. She was with us through the whole labor & delivery. If/when we have another child we are definitely hiring Naomi again! There isn't enough words to describe how much we love the photos and birth video. I still bawl my eyes out every time I watch it.
