Birth arrives on a sea of emotions, where memories recede on waves of new experiences, one tumbling after the other. Having a birth photographer allows you to fully live in these early moments of motherhood knowing that your story is being artfully told. You can rest in each new encounter without fear that you won’t remember each precious moment. Days, nights, holidays and weekends...babies have a way of choosing their own birthday. For two weeks before and two weeks following your due date I am on call for your birth 24/7. During your labor, I will quietly and unobtrusively, document the emotions, the strength and the joy of your baby’s first day on earth.
Your baby is changing before your eyes. You know because you can’t stop staring at this little miracle of life in your arms. Fresh 48 sessions are intimate sessions in the hospital or birthing center, perfect for capturing family introductions of the new baby to their siblings and can be a nice compromise for mothers who want a more guided experience of capturing her baby’s first few hours of life, without documenting the full birth experience!
Let me know when you are due, and if there are specific moments you are most excited to have captured. I will send you a detailed birth photography guide that will address the most commonly asked questions as well as provide you with packaging and pricing options.
You have questions and I have answers! We will go over any concerns, logistics and planning needed for a successful birth session.
Birth is unpredictable, and you have enough unknowns surrounding your baby’s arrival which is which I have put together a comprehensive package that is both simple and inclusive. The only option you will have to decide on is whether to add a story-telling album!
Birth is an intimate experience so it is important to me that I know you and what you desire from your birth experience in order to be able to capture your baby’s birthday as accurately as possible. I will follow up to review your answers and ensure you don’t have any lingering questions.
I will send you my contract and invoice where you can pay your retainer. This may be the easiest part of your birth experience! It is simple, easy to access and can be done from your phone!
I begin my on call for your birth at 38 weeks and continue through 42 weeks.
It’s finally here and I will be with you from the time active labor starts through the first hour or of Baby’s arrival
Serving mothers during this early season of motherhood means accepting a limited number of families each month. This allows me to provide exemplary service and still plan around those babies who like to make their own schedules!
Birth, Maternity and Newborn sessions are typically reserved at the beginning of your second trimester. There aren’t many things you can plan for with motherhood, but photos are one of them. Don’t wait to invest in your family’s memories!
