Investing in a Birth Photographer
Documenting your child’s birth is such an honor and privilege. There are so many whirlwind of emotions happening. I truly feel that the birth of your child is something so important, so moving, so miraculous — that it must be photographed just like your wedding should!
I know what you might be thinking — birth… photography?? Why would I want a stranger there? Can’t my husband take photos? What about modesty?
Hiring a professional photographer to document your babies birth allows you to rely fully on your husband. He should be there for you and should be able to experience everything. As with weddings or portraits, I always strive to get to know my clients before we shoot to create authentic photography. The same applies with investing in birth photography. I will meet with you for a consultation as well as a pre-birth meeting. This is my opportunity to check in, answer questions, talk about the birth and expectations, and is just another opportunity to get to know each other. Birth is an intimate thing and I want to do what I can to make you more comfortable. While shooting I know where to stand, how to be out of the way, and will keep the photos as modest as possible.
How does it work? What do we get? When should we book you? How much does it cost?
When you get to the hospital, give me a call. When you are in active labor (6cm), call or text me and I will run over to you. From here on out we wait. I will stay and photograph until the baby is born and one hour after (to capture baby being weighed, all the excitement, etc.)
About two days after the birth, you will receive a sneak peek of a few images and after 2-3 weeks you will receive your password protected online gallery. If you are thinking about hiring a birth photographer, contact me as soon as you know a possible birth date.
