Birth Story Packages
"Promise me you'll always remember: You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." — A. A. Milne
Why hire a birth photographer? Imagine being able to see: the first time you lay your eyes on your sweet baby. That joy in your face. The slight tears that well up in your eyes. The sweet cries of a new life being laid on your chest. Your empowering journey to motherhood. All this and more is what Birth Photography aims to capture, to document. The story of this life and how they came to be. Birth is truly a momentous occasion. Just like your wedding day, you hired a professional photographer to capture those moments so beautifully. This is not your typical portrait session, nor should it be. This a moment you will never forget, that can be easily remembered and revisited with photographs. Photographs of those fleeting moments you get to keep forever.
By hiring a birth photographer, your loved ones and your birth support team are able to do their job which is supporting you and not having to worry about taking photos. It also ensures you get those amazing first moments captured with your loved ones in the actual photographs.
My Birth Photography is one that captures your story, your journey in a photo-journalistic documentary style. As a mother, I can relate to your needs and sensitivity during labor & delivery and will remain "a fly on the wall" and be as unobtrusive as you and your support team wishes. Because of my own home birth & doula experiences, I will always be supportive and respectful of your needs as well as the needs of your support team and the birthing location.
Birth Photography packages start at $650
All packages include an in person consultation, photography coverage, high resolution digital images, a private online viewing gallery to share and order from along with full printing rights to print your images whenever and where ever you choose.
In 2014 - *Now offering "stand-by" birth photography at a discounted rate.* Please contact me for more details.
I require 30% of the package fee as a non-refundable retainer to reserve your estimated due date, as well as the surrounding dates, on my calendar as I am only able to book no more than 2 births per month in order to help ensure births do not overlap. The retainer will go towards your package and the remainder of the fees is due by your 38th week. Interest free payment plans & gift registry set up are available for these birth photography services.
Prices are subject to change without notice. The price at the time of your booking is the one that will be honored.
Travel fees may apply if beyond 30 miles of 94607.
