Allowing someone other than a professional photographer to take photos of your baby's birth is like telling your wedding guests to take cell phone pictures on your wedding day. Birth photography preserves the beautiful memories of your unique and emotional birth story, including all of the details surrounding that day. It's true when they say that the INSTANT your baby is placed on your chest, the mental memory of the day becomes a blur. The value of hiring an experienced professional in the genre of birth will always be worth the investment!
You're investment includes:
- Complimentary consultation
- 24/7 on-call starting at 38 weeks until baby is born
- Unlimited coverage from active labor until your baby is born
- Up to 2 hours of postpartum coverage
- Post production/editing time
- Online gallery access
Within 48 hours after birth, you can expect to receive a "sneak peek" to share as an announcement with family and friends. Your full online gallery will be ready in 3-6 weeks.
There is not a set number of images I deliver. As long as the picture is clear, in focus and meets my expectations on quality; you'll get it!
It all depends on your level of comfort. The images in my portfolio gives others who may be interested in birth photography some insight into what it actually looks like and what my particular style is. HOWEVER, my first priority is YOU! I will never post graphic or more revealing images of you online that you are not comfortable with.
I'm prepared to meet you at your birthing place once you're in active labor or around 7-8 cm, so COMMUNICATION IS KEY. This is always a case by case scenario and I can help you to know when its time.

Yes! Please inform your provider that you're thinking about hiring a birth photographer prior to booking. While many providers are on board, if you are planning a hospital birth or c-section, there may be policies in place with restrictions that I must know about ahead of time and abide by.
