The moment you become a parent is everything.
The amount of feelings and emotions that bombard you is indescribable.
For 40 weeks you prepare for this one day, this one moment when you meet your baby for the first time… and much like your wedding day, it’s gone within a blink of an eye.
Documenting Your Birth
Your birth space is a very sacred place, and I highly respect it. This moment in your life is very intimate and personal, and I feel incredibly honored when a family wants me to be a part of their birth team.
When you hire me to document your birth, I am on call for you starting at 37 weeks. Being on call means you are getting me 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and you get priority over any holiday or special event going on. Once it’s been confirmed that you are in active labor, I will get ready and head your way. I start taking photos the moment I arrive and finish about 2-3 hours after your baby has been born. There’s no set number of hours or a time cap, so you won’t be charged extra if labor happens to go 12+ hours.
This is your journey into parenthood… and I want to be there every step of the way!
My favorite part about documenting your birth is being on your birth team and supporting your family. This photo was taken with my first repeat client, and it has to be one of my most favorite photos of all time! While I may not offer physical and verbal support, I am there for you emotionally and spiritually cheering you on and reminding you of how incredibly strong you are through my photographs.
