Frequently Asked Questions
about Birth Stories

What is included in the Birth Story service?

Each Birth Story includes the shooting time and one of our fine art albums containing all of your selected images from your birth.  We highlight your images with a personalized video slideshow.  Showcase a few of your favorite photographs on your walls by purchasing framed prints.

Do you travel for Birth Stories?

Due to the unexpected nature of the miracle of birth, I only travel outside of the Tarrant County Area for scheduled C-Sections.  If you are interested in booking your scheduled C-section, please contact for more information.

Do you show everything in your photographs??

Not if you don’t want me to show everything! What I capture depends on the mother’s request as discussed at our consultation.  Some women only want the modest”concept” of birth captured; other’s want every single detail photographed, from crowning to delivery.  I respect your privacy and personal preference.

If you would like photographs taken at the hospital, but do not want the birth captured, we do offer our New Arrival sessions, which gives you time to rest and primp prior to our arrival.

Do you shoot video?

I do capture video during the birth to incorporate into your slide show.  If there are specifics that you would like, such as the first cry, the heartbeat in utero, etc. please let me know.

Can we get prints of our photographs?

Absolutely! You can order our archival framed portraits or unframed prints at any time. Every print comes with a digital file of the image.
