How much does birth photography cost?
I would love to be there when you welcome your precious babe into your arms and capture it all for you. I offer birth photography coverage and a combo of birth photography and videography coverage.
If you’re looking for extra education and support during pregnancy, labor and after birth, I can do that for you as I am a Certified Labor Doula!
When should I book with you?
The sooner the better! Usually expecting mamas book me around 16 weeks of pregnancy but I have had a few book just days before baby arrived. Fortunately I was available!
How do I book with you?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out the Contact Form and we’ll set up a time for a complimentary consultation.
What if I require or schedule a Cesarean birth?
You will need to make sure that you talk this over with your care provider and advocate to have me in the operating room with you. Having your birth documented during a cesarean a lot of times helps with bonding and emotional healing.
If I am not allowed in the OR I will document from the moment you go in to the moment you, your husband and your baby come out.
Will my photographs be in color or black & white?
They will be a mix of color and black and white and I retain the creative right to pick and choose how the images are edited. The photographs you see on my website and social medial give you a realistic image of my editing style.
How many photographs can I expect to receive?
Approximately 100-200 depending how long I am with you before you birth your baby.
What if my birth takes a really long time?
I make arrangements for situations like this. I do not charge overtime or any extra fees for a long labor. Just know that I might excuse myself to get a bite to eat or get some sleep if labor has stalled or progression taking extra time.
How long do you stay after delivery?
Typically 2 hours. Usually after the 2 hour mark mama and baby are ready for a nap and that is when I give my hugs and make my exit.
Are you going to post my photos on the internet?
I will only post photos that I would be comfortable posting of myself which means, only modest photos will be posted online.
Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, you can make payments in any increments after the initial retainer, as long as the balance is paid by 37 weeks which is when I am on call for you.
Do you offer maternity, newborn or family sessions?
Yes, these are Motherhood Memories that I am passionate about preserving!
Maternity sessions are taken in the comfort of your home or at an outdoor location. These are typically 1 hour in length.
In Home Newborn sessions are taken in the comfort of your home within the first 2 weeks after birth. I bring all my props, baskets, wraps and outfits for the baby. These are typically 2-3 hours in length.
Family sessions are taken in the comfort of your home or at an outdoor location. These are typically 1 hour in length.
Do you have recommendations for midwives and other care providers?
I do! You can refer to my Recommended Resources that I update regularly
