Why hire a birth photographer?
The photos from your labor and delivery will serve as a beautiful reminder of one of the most important days of your life. Allowing me to handle this very important task will not only free up Dad or your other support person to be more available to you during your labor and delivery, but it will also ensure that his or her participation is captured on film. Dad won't have to worry about taking photos, so he'll be better able to enjoy the moment right along with you. He can be a more active participant. It's definitely a day worthy of documenting.
When you contact me, we will set up a consultation to discuss what you should expect, what you would like to have photographed, and any other questions you may have. At the consultation, a $250 deposit is required to secure your tentative session. This deposit is non-refundable unless I cannot make it to your birth for some odd reason.
About birth photography
Birth is very unpredictable, and the lighting is never ideal. These are not portraits. I photograph births in a photojournalistic style and prefer to use black and white images. The black and white images better reflect the mood of the event, and they help to tone down the graphic nature of birth.
I will only take on a very limited amount of these sessions a month so please get your consulation in as far away from your due date as possible! I will be available for all "methods" of delivery...c-sections, inductions as well as the natural way!
The session fee for this session is $350.
