Consultation

I offer free consultations to anyone considering birth photography. This in-person meeting is an opportunity for us to get to know each other, talk about your birth plan get comfortable with one other. It's a chance for you to decide if I'm the right fit to join your birth team. I love meeting with potential clients to answer their questions and hear their hopes for the upcoming birth experience.

 


keep me updated

You'll have my cell phone number, so be sure to text me if anything happens that may indicate labor is close. Irregular contractions? Bloody show? Water breaking? These are the things I like to know about so I can clear my schedule to be with you when the time comes.

when to call

Call me as soon as labor begins – just to give me a heads up. I sleep next to the phone and more often than not, this call comes in the middle of the night. Then we'll keep in touch via text until it's time for me to meet you. I usually arrive at the birth when contractions are five minutes apart, when you feel the need for additional support, when it seems like things are really picking up.


labor and delivery

I stay with you throughout the entire process. I am quietly there, capturing the moments of strength and emotion that are a part of every woman's labor. When your baby is born, you and your partner can be completely present in welcoming your little one. No need to fumble around with a camera – I've got it covered. I photograph tiny feet, relieved smiles and the sweetest newborn cuddles. I stay for 1-2 hours after delivery and then slip out the door as you continue rest and recover and soak in this precious time together.

what to expect

Four weeks after your birth I will post a gallery of images on my proofing site. Each one is hand edited and ready for printing or sharing online. Clients receive an average of 125 photographs that tell the miraculous story of the birthing day.

My $1300 fee includes the birth session, downloadable gallery, and a 20 page album. These photos will be a priceless treasure to your family for years to come.
