Birth Photography

The birth of a child is the greatest
love story of your life.

 

Your beautiful, tiny baby, which took months of love and care to create, will join this wonderful world in one fleeting moment.  It is the one time you are forced to live in the moment rather than focus on the details - many of which are missed during the event.

As a birth photographer, my mission is to document every precious moment and emotion of your birth story so that you may visually reflect on this wonderful day, the moment their story begins,  and treasure them for years to come.

 
 

What story do you want to tell?

Not every birth is the same, nor is every birth story.  Some mothers value every detail of their birth, and others just want a little more privacy to their story.  No matter which story you choose,  I would love to photograph the greatest love story of your life.

 Choose from one of our service coverage options below.  A $250 retainer is required at the time of booking to secure your due date block.  Your session fee must be paid in full no later than four weeks prior to your session date.

new arrival

For those who prefer to keep the delivery a private affair,

This package is unique and flexible; schedule your photography session right after your baby is born for a Fresh 48, or wait a few days after you’re home and rested. 

The new arrival session simply focuses on the details after your baby is born, not the whole birth.  Once you have rested and recouped, we arrive to photograph that special time in the hospital or at home while you bond with your baby.

The New Arrival session is perfect for adoptions!   Your New Arrival story includes:

  • Two Hours Coverage at home or in the hospital scheduled after baby arrives
  • Web-sized, Watermarked digital files for social media
