Birth Photography & Videography
As we know, babies come on THEIR time table, not ours. Labor transcends a momma to an inner place that takes full concentration. There will be moments during your labor experience that will forever be engrained in your memory and other moments when you were so fully present in laboring, that you will not remember things occurring when you hear the stories after you've given birth. We are able to fully document with photography, videography, or a little of both, a treasure that will become a family heirloom.
We will be completely accessible to you via our phone weeks prior to your due date. We only accept a few Births per month to guarantee our availability for your baby's birth. As a result of this, it is best to reserve your spot as soon as you know you'd like to hire us as your Photographer.
Have your husband or support person call us immediately when you are sure you're in labor so that we can give our sitter enough time to get to our house. Sometimes labor progresses quickly and we want to be sure we have given our people enough notice time to guarantee we make it to your Birth on time.
We will cover active labor and about 2 hours after delivery to capture those sweet first moments. Afterwards, we will check in with you to see if there is anything else you need before we leave.
If you are interested in our Birth Photography or Birth Videography services, please contact us by 34 weeks of pregnancy so that we can meet in person to go over what we do during a typical birth and to go over your birth plan. If you are having a home birth, we would love to meet you in your home so that we can see the space & lighting we will be working in during your birth. This is also a great time for you to ask me any questions you may have.

See how that works? All mamas need a helpful team on their side! :)
Paula and I have had an array of birth experiences ourselves, from all-natural with a midwife to c-sections and everything in between. All sacred moments that helped us become the compassionate, understanding mamas we are today. You can rest assured, when you hire us, you're not just hiring women with a camera, but mamas who have gone before you, compassionate, understanding discretion, knowing when to shoot and when to pause.
