Birth is an incredible journey for you, your family and your child. Whether you are welcoming your first born, or adding another little person into the mix, capturing this story in photographs is an incredible gift to yourself and your child. A professional photographer ensures your partner will be in the photos and able to fully support you. Hiring a professional birth photographer allows you and your partner to fully rely on each other without the pressure off trying to capture the moment. I'm there to capture your story as it unfolds.
How it works! I provide you with a classic, yet modest, approach to your birth documentation. I believe in documenting the experience, and emotion, without capturing all the "private" parts. I focus all those little moments that make up your baby’s birth story. With that said, if you request a more in-depth approach I can accommodate. However, that will be for you to share. I will only post your modest images.
Birth Stories are rather unique and unpredictable. There are so many unknown variables: time of day or night, the birth date, lighting conditions, and the length of your shoot. You are not just hiring me for the birth, but also for the time leading up to and after the birth. I recommend contact me as soon as you know your approximately due date. Since I book weddings, I need to know well in advanced if I need to slate days off for you birth documentation. With secure coverage I set aside the day prior to your due date, your expected due date and the day after due date. I do schedule other session in this time, but only things that can be rebooked. I will not book a wedding around your birth session.
With a non-secure birth session I am on-call for your birth. Should your delivery fall at a time when I am available, I will be there. This option is cheaper; however, I do not guarantee coverage. Therefore, you only pay for my services if you receive them.
