Bio My name is Elliana Allon (formerly Gilbert) and I live on the Canadian Prairie. I've been a passionate student of art my entire life... picking up a pencil at the tender age of 3 and have lived a life saturated in a love for art ever since. I knew I wanted to shoot births after spending a few years studying and working as a nurse and witnessing first-hand the sacred transformative power that lies within birth. I came to understand how that very power related to the immense messages behind some of the greatest masterpieces I've grown up studying. Thus began my journey of capturing the birth space photographically, while presenting it as if I were wielding a paintbrush. I hope to share some golden nuggets from my own discoveries and learnings with you, through my course with Birth Becomes Her.
