Birth Photography

I love photographing life as it unfolds. One of the most amazing events of my life was when I gave birth to my daughter Charlotte. It was an experience that I will never forget, and I am glad that I have images from that day to look back on.  I want to be there with you to share in the amazement of childbirth and document the entire experience.  Whether it be a hospital or home birth, it is truly worth investing in.

Being that birth and labor are unpredictable but beautiful events, birth photography is not priced as a normal portrait session.  Your investment includes me being on call for one week before and one week after your due date. Even if you go into labor at 2 a.m., I will be there to document.  My goal is to tell your story in an artistic, unobtrusive way, and be there to support you and your family as you bring something wonderful into this world.

Your investment includes photography coverage, travel fees (up to one hour from my base location), and editing, and your final images in a keepsake dvd.

A $500 retainer is required to book your birthing session. It is best to inquire and book your birth photography session when you are at least 24-28 weeks.  Balance can be made as a payment plan or lump sum, due two weeks before estimated due date.  Payment plans can be arranged for bookings within 30 days of due date. Due to the custom nature of this type of photography, the retainer and fee balance cannot be refunded except under extenuating circumstances. However, the retainer and balance can be forward to a portrait session along with ordering products or collections.

Births are an unpredicatble event, and babies come on their own time. I've had births that lasted 2 hours from the time I was called, all the way up to three days. Typically coverage includes part of labor, actual delivery, and about 2-3 hours post birth.  I typically come in when you are about 4 centimeters.  Every birth is different.
