Hello and welcome to my website! I’m Ginessa Pierson, a professional photographer specializing in birth photography, located in Sacramento, CA. I have been married to my husband, Mike, for 14 years and we have two children together. A beautifully charming, sensitive, and loving 13 years old son named Daniel and a sassy, wise beyond her years, and hilarious 11 year old daughter named Emily. I grew up in a gorgeous town in Northern California called Ukiah and then attended college in San Francisco. I moved to Sacramento in 2004 and can’t imagine living anywhere else.


I feel completely blessed that I have found my passion in life: Birth Photography. I feel with every fiber of my being that this is what I was put on this earth to do. Of course, it’s amazing to witness so many babies born into this world but even more than that, I treasure the joy it brings to parents to have their birth story captured. Every single birth has a story that deserves to be preserved and remembered for generations to come and I would be honored to capture yours.


I have been exclusively shooting births for over 7 years and have photographed over 75 births. My work has been featured in The Huffington Post, The Huffington Post Parents, Birth Becomes Her, SheKnows, Becoming Dad, Birth Without Fear,, and shared countless times on different platforms online. I am a proud member of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers, Professional Photographers of America,  and an affiliate member of Capital City Doulas.
