Availablity

I like to think of babies as wizards, "A wizard is never late, nor is he early, he arrives precisely when he means to!" - Gandalf, with that I only take a limited number of birth per month. Book early to secure your spot!

BIRTH STORY SESSIONS

I firmly believe that a comprehensive birth story can provide healing, allow you to claim your strength and to find your beauty and honor your birth

BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY
IS FOR YOU IF…

You are worried you may miss out, that you won’t remember everything?

You want your support person actually supporting you, not fumbling with a camera!

You want to be able to experience the birth of your child from every perspective.

 

WHY BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY?

Great question!

This is what I know, birth is entirely unpredictable, no birth is ever the same. I can assure you, having it documented will never be on your lists of “What I Would Have Done Differently…”

Your support person is an integral part of your birth story. It is so important to be focused and centered; allow them to be present for you to help ground you. Remove the distraction of worrying about getting every detail, let me take care of all that.

 

BIRTH ONLY HAPPENS ONCE…

There is no do over, no going back.

Why risk missing a moment, a detail or forgetting to document some of the most important moments of birth?

Things happen quickly and you need to be focused and relying on your support person to be there for you.

You know that expecting a friend or family member to ensure that each emotion is captured, every detail thought of simply isn’t going to be enough.

That is exactly why you are hiring me.

To see the moments that you don’t. To document from a place of empathy, to honor the birth of this new human. To ensure that every piece of your birth story is told, you deserve that and so does your baby.

 

SO, WHAT’S INCLUDED IN YOUR BIRTH STORY PACKAGE!?

  • Let’s meet for coffee (or tea or juice or muffins or cupcakes, I’m easy!) It’s important to me that you like me! But honestly, it has nothing to do with me and everything to do with you – choosing the right fit for your birth team is something that shouldn’t be overlooked. Knowing the energy that is going to be brought into your laboring space is an important decision and I want you to feel comfortable with me being there.

  • I go on call for you starting at 37 weeks – this means I am available to you, 24/7 for whatever you need. You have questions? Ask them! You think your water broke? Tell me! Headed to the hospital? Let me know!

  • Unlimited coverage of your labor and delivery – and by unlimited I mean that I have had folks that asked for me to be there from the time of their induction to delivery which can span days to folks who have me come in just before baby is born. This is entirely up to you, it is your story.

  • 2hrs Post Delivery – these will be some of the first family photos you will have! Being able to remain in your experience, present and not worrying about pictures is important. Once everything settles in the room you have a chance to soak it all in, you just had a baby! I love documenting all the snuggles and the newborn exam for you.

  • Digital Gallery and App – I usually head straight home and edit a couple of photos (because I just can’t help it!) for you to be able to share with friends and family this is when I create your individual app that you load directly onto your phone so that you can save your web sized files for easy social media posting and sharing. Within a couple of weeks I will send you a link to your online gallery, this is where you will receive all of your high resolution images, it is password protected and you are able to order directly from it.

 

FIND YOUR BIRTH PACKAGE

There are so many things that come along with pregnancy and postpartum that are worth documenting in addition to birth. Because I wish that I had documented more of my story during this season of my life I created packages that allow you to do just that!
