You've waited for this day for what seems like forever, you've prepared as much as you can and then it goes by in an instant. How will you remember all of the details and emotions of this amazing day?
A birth photographer.
My favorite part of birth photography isn't just capturing birth, although that's a big part of it. It's about capturing all of those details you'll soon forget or miss all together. Like grandma and grandpa waiting anxiously in the waiting room. Or the look on dad's face when he sees baby for the first time. Or your support team holding your hand giving you all of the reassurance you need. You are so focused on bringing this new life into the world that you may miss these things and that's ok, that's what birth photography is for.
Out of my 3 births I only have pictures from my last birth and they are some of my most treasured pictures. I didn't hire a birth photographer, I handed my mom my camera very last minute and said just snap whatever you can. Looking back I wish she could have just been in the moment of witnessing her granddaughter being born instead of trying to figure out how to work my camera. Part of me wants to have another baby just so I can have a birth photographer there to capture that beautiful moment for us!

- Unlimited time at your birth, from active labor until you deliver. I also stay 2 hours after birth to capture siblings meeting baby and important moments.
-All edited digitals delivered in an online gallery. Images are edited in both color and/or black and white.
$500 deposit due to hold your spot, I only take 2 births per month. Payments can be made, must be paid in full by 36 weeks.
Your baby is finally here.
The first few days after your little one is here is so special. This is a simple portrait session to document this precious time: those new little fingers and toes, snuggles with daddy, tender moments with momma, and siblings meeting each other for the first time.
This session is done in your postpartum room 24-48 hours after the birth of baby. I will spend 60-90 minutes with you and your new little one in your room capturing all of the details of your new family. This is relaxed, lifestyle type session with no props and very few posed images.
