NEW DISCOUNTED RATE - "Stand By" Birth photography coverage: Similar to traveling on standby - If I am available on your labor day {you must call me!!} and I am not otherwise booked or at another birth or other event, I will come to you and document your birth story. I am not on call and cannot guarantee my arrival. It is your responsibility {or your partner's!} to call me immediately when you are in active labor and I will arrive, if available to, and document for up to three hours after delivery. Total cost for this is $850 {A deposit of $425 is still required and will go towards your session. If I do not make it or am otherwise unavailable to document your birth journey, the deposit is fully refunded or you can have your funds go towards a fresh 48 session instead} and you will receive your edited images in a private online viewing gallery to share, where you can easily download the full resolution images. {approx. 75 - 100 images}

Package fees also include: 

  • Prenatal meeting with continued & constant communication & support if needed throughout your pregnancy
  • My time - before, during and after your journey & baby's birth
  • My talent of capturing, processing & custom editing of your images
  • a private online gallery of all your edited images to view, share and order from which is hosted for up to 1 year.
  • a sneak peek/blog post on my website's blog (if you have agreed & selected images will be approved before posting)
  • All your edited high resolution images to keep via download with unlimited printing rights for personal use.

Required to Reserve your Due Date:

A non-refundable retainer fee that is equal to 50% of your chosen package or as listed above is required to reserve your estimated due date on my calendar (I do not book any other event or session during your estimated due date - up to two weeks before and after. I block out 4-5 weeks of my time to provide you with my services) and the remaining balance, can be paid with interest free installments upon a schedule we both agree on {4 scheduled payments are made where the balance is paid in full by your 38-39th week}. The retainer will of course go towards your package.

*You maybe wondering how in the world is this so costly. While I could list the many reasons why my birth photography costs this much, another fellow birth photographer has done it more eloquently than I could - after all I am no wordsmith. I usually let my images do the talking. If you would like to find out about the costs involved, please read her article here.
