Why Hire a Birth Photographer?

1. Allows you to live fully in each moment as it unfolds:
Giving birth usually demands all of our energy and attention, and many mothers talk about everything around them fading, as they go into the “zone” of giving birth. Hiring a birth photographer gives you the freedom to live fully in each moment as it unfolds; from the intricate details of your baby's wrinkly little hands, to the expressions of awe and joy as you delight in them, your birth photographer preserves these special moments for your family, in a detailed, visual memory. 

2. Allows your spouse to fully support you:
Instead of your partner worrying about taking photos, invite a professional birth photographer to do their job, and to capture your birth event. One of my favorite images to capture is dad's expression when he meets newborn baby for the first time. Your partner can give you his full attention, and be more relaxed and present with you during your birth, while your birth photographer skillfully documents it all.

3. Capturing a Birth Requires Skill and Professional Equipment:
A birth photographer is trained and experienced in how to capture the best-possible images for you; from choosing the right angles, to the lighting, to capturing all the small details, and all the time it takes to edit and compile your birth story, a professional birth photographer is equipped with the necessary tools it takes to beautifully capture your birth. (The image to the right was taken late into the night, with only one, small lamp in the room, but my camera and editing equipment allowed me to preserve the moment well, so that this family can look back on and cherish it for years to come.) 

4. Childbirth is one of the most important events of life:
Every time a baby is born is a miraculous event. There are no do-overs with a birth. This is the one time your child will enter the world, and it's an event worth documenting. We spend thousands to capture our weddings, not only because it’s a special day filled with love, joy, and beauty, but it also marks the event of inviting someone into your family; likewise, your birth is also worthy of being preserved in beautiful, lasting images.

5. Remembering your Birth gives you a refreshed perspective 
I have to admit: there are some rough days as a parent. After several sleepless nights in a row, and what feels like non-stop-nursing, diapering, and crying, I just want to get away from it all, and find my sanity. During these times, I often look back at my own birth story images, and my heart swells with joy, thankfulness, and refreshed love for my babies. I have no birth photos from our first birth – only vague, faint memories. I regret not capturing it, but my birth photos from our last home-water-birth mean the world to me, and I look through them often, and they help me to remember the miracle of life, to not take it for granted, and to push through the challenges as I did with my birth.

When you Hire Me: 
Having given birth myself, I understand the intimacy and vulnerability of giving birth; your comfort is my utmost priority. When we meet prior to your birth, I want to give you the chance to grow comfortable with me, get to know each other a bit, and go over the details of your birth plan. Together, we will brainstorm how I might best capture the process for you.

Birth clients are my top-most priority, which is why from 37 weeks until your birth, I will be on-call for you 24/7. This means that all of my other sessions take second place, I do not plan any travel or vacation, and I prioritize your reserved time. We will stay in touch as you start to go into labor, and I will arrive at your place of delivery when you are moving into active labor. I will stay with you throughout the process, and up to 2 hours afterwards while you and your loved ones bond with your newest family member. 

Birth photography is well-worth the investment, and I do offer payment plans to clients who book in advance. Please Contact Me for information and package options.
To be updated on specials, bonuses, and promotions, follow me on Facebook. You can connect with me for more information. I make every effort to respond to inquiries within 48 hours.

I look forward to hearing from you!
