Why hire a birth photographer?
The photos from your labor and delivery are a beautiful reminder of one of the most important days of your life. Allowing a photographer to handle this important task will not only free up Dad or your other support person to be more available to you during your labor and delivery, but it will also ensure that his or her participation is captured on film. Dad won’t have to worry about taking photos, so he’ll be better able to enjoy the moment right along with you. He can be a more active participant on a day worthy of documenting!
All births include time, travel, unlimited coverage of labor and delivery, and an edited CD of anywhere between 50-100 images in black and white and color
I love to get together with my moms and dads-to-be right around 35 weeks and go over what I do during a typical birth. It’s also a great opportunity to go over your birth plan and ask me any questions you might have. It also gives me a chance to introduce myself in person before the big day!
What if I am having a c-section…
Every birth experience is worth photographing. While it depends on the hospital you’re delivering at weather I can be in the operating room with you or not, there are still many important moments I’m able to capture during your stay.
How long will it take to receive the images…
I will post 10-12 teasers within 24 hours and you will get the rest in about 1-2 weeks but it varies on my schedule and the number of images taken.
How many images will you take…
Each birth experience is unique and different. A longer labor and delivery will result in more images. On average, couples receive around 50-100 finished images on a digitally enhanced CD
Additional products are available, such as prints, birth announcements, canvas wraps and bound books with images from your birth.
