Why hire a birth photographer?IMG_1838
The photos from your labor and delivery are a beautiful reminder of one of the most important days of your life. Allowing a photographer to handle this important task will not only free up your birth partner and/or doula to be more available to you during your labor and delivery, but it will also ensure that his or her participation is captured.

FAQ

What kind of guarantee do you offer?

There are many factors in birth and newborns that I cannot control, for example, if your care provider clears the room, I may miss capturing something important. If a birth attendant unknowingly steps into the shot, I may miss those crucial few seconds when the baby emerges. If mom needs the lights low during labor or birth, the quality of my images may decrease significantly. It is best that we discuss ways to avoid missed shots during our face to face consultation, and to also discuss having a photographer as part of your birth team with your care provider ahead of time.

 

How many images will you take?

Each birth experience is unique and different. A longer labor and delivery will result in more images while a mom that needs lots of privacy and low-lighting may end up with less. The number of newborn images will depend upon how cooperative the little one is feeling. I will do my best to get as many good images as possible!

 

What if I have a c-section?IMG_6178
Every birth experience is worth photographing. I will try my best to be allowed into the OR, but if not, there are still many important moments I will be able to capture during your stay.
