Birth Information and Pricing

Birth Information:

Hiring a professional to photograph your birth can seem like a strange concept to those who have never seen or experienced it before, particularly to husbands and fathers. However, having a professional birth photographer capture these moments for you frees up your partner to just be present & free to support you during your birth process.  The moments when you need your support team the most are usually when you need photos taken as well. Dad should CERTAINLY not be behind the lens of a camera when his baby is entering the world & taking their first breaths! Their place is by their partner’s side, helping to catch their baby, or simply taking in the moment.

I appreciate that labor and birth is a very private time between you and your partner. It is entirely up to you as to what images & video content (if any) are to be shared online. Images and video content will only ever be shared with your expressed permission.

Because of the unpredictable nature of birth, the immense amount of editing work afterward, and being a mom of four I can only schedule 1 video packages and 1 photographic-only packages a month at this time. Please keep this in mind to reserve the time around your due date as early as possible!
