Birth photography isn’t just another photography session. When you book birth photography with me, you get the guarantee of “on-call” time from your 37th week of gestation until you deliver. My goal is to capture your birth from active labor until about 2-3 hours post delivery. I focus on capturing the connection between you and your birthing partner, the journey of labor for you as a mother, and the very first moments of your child’s life. I am proud and excited to offer birth photography services to parents of walks of life. No matter how your family is formed I am so honored to capture these moments for you.
Each and every birth photography package includes digitals and print products with additional purchases available. This is such a special moment of your life. Your growing family is so unique and your birth photography package should reflect that. I would love to talk, meet up and let you hold all of my product options, flip through some gorgeous birth story albums, and pick the perfect products for your family. I love helping you choose pieces that will become family heirlooms for generations AND I get a change to meet you, hear all about your birth plans and family! I can’t wait to meet you. Email or call me and we can set up that meeting ASAP, because I just can’t wait!
Discounts are available for families delivering while a parent is deployed.
Fresh 48 (In Hospital Newborn Session)
In-Hospital Newborn Sessions also known as Fresh 48 Sessions take place within 48 hours of your child’s birth, during normal “working hours”, while still in hospital. These sessions focus on capturing the connection between your growing family, while also documenting those sweet newborn baby details that change so quickly. These sessions also are available with a Birth Announcement Video option! A great way to share your joy of your newest arrival!
What If I go into labor late at night/early in the morning/a week before im due/etc.?
I understand that babies are not only born between 8am and 5pm. I am on call 24/7 for my clients. If you happen to go into labor early I should still be available (I block out 2 weeks surrounding birth for each client, but am USUALLY always around for someones due date) If for some reason I am unable to make it I have backup photographers available.
What if I have a really long labor?
That's perfectly fine (& normal!) I promise I'm not timing you, or charging you by the hour. If your labor stalls significantly I may step out for a few hours and return when labor picks up. However, for the most part I am there for the long haul!
Do you photograph c-sections?
Unfortunately, the hospitals in the area do not allow photographers in the room most of the time. However, please consult with your Dr. as every circumstance is different. If okay-ed by Dr. and hospital I will be more than happy to photograph your c-section. If you happen to have an emergency c-section after going into labor I will continue to stay at the hospital to photograph everything leading up to and after the O.R. If you are having a planned c-section I offer special rates for coverage before and after the O.R.
do you take crowning shots?
Yes! But only if you want me to. We can talk specifics about all the photos you want, or don't want during your one-on-one consultation.
