Children are a precious gift from the Lord. I am honored each time a family invites me in to document the sacred occasion of their child's birth. Here is a snapshot of what you can expect from your Birth Photography experience with me.
I'd Love to Meet You
Each labor experience is unique, just like you. We will meet or Skype in order to talk through your birth plan and any details you think I should know so I can serve you and your family well. I will send you a short form to fill out so I know the major details ahead of time (like where you'll be giving birth, contact information if you have a Doula, etc).
I love offering a Maternity Session (an optional add-on) because it gives you the chance to pause and celebrate the miracle inside of you! You deserve to feel beautiful and be celebrated with this "me time" to treat yourself. This also gives us another chance to spend time together and connect before the big day.
There When You Need Me
While a typical portrait session is scheduled and lasts 1-2 hours, the birth of your baby may certainly be more spontaneous! Because of this, I want to put you at ease and am on call 24/7 for the 2 weeks surrounding your due date. I won't schedule other families within this period. I'm as flexible as possible if circumstances arise outside the 2 weeks around your due date.
I love sharing the stories of my clients through my blog. It's a wonderful platform to highlight the memories of your experience. The blog post features pre-approved pictures (to accommodate your privacy). This post is perfect for sharing with family and friends. You can see an example by clicking here.
I provide coverage from the time around when you enter "active labor" until 1-2 hours after your baby is born. I love capturing those sweet moments of discovery for your growing family. You only meet for the first time, one time.
Within the first 24 hours your baby is born, I deliver 5 hand-picked, edited images for you to share any way you'd like! These images are perfect for birth announcements on Facebook.
You will receive a Downloadable Online Gallery and have the option to purchase my signature album, canvases, and prints (with optional framing).
