We don’t think twice about spending a hefty amount to hire a professional photographer on our wedding day, why should it be any different for the birth of your baby?

When I talk to prospective clients about doing a Birth Story, it can be a hard sell. I think it's difficult to visualize what the finished product would look like (especially for grandparents and prospective dads), and when you google "Birth Story" you may see some very graphic images that might be a bit much for you. The birth of your child is such an intimate event, it requires the most delicate touch and the most tailored of coverage. Your comfort level is my highest priority and by having a photographer present, not only can your partner, family, and friends be more helpful to you, but they can also be more fully present in the experience itself.  You as the mother often times cannot see all that is happening because you are so focused (as you should be!) on the task at hand!  


Some mothers want to see everything in their photos, others would prefer I stay by their heads and take the photos from a discreet perspective.  These photos are for your eyes only… and you only have to share publicly the ones you want the world to see.

A birth story is something beautiful not only for yourself to see the whole day unfold from a different perspective, but these memories are preserved for you to share with friends & family, and hopefully even your child someday. How amazing would it be for you to see beautiful photos and video of the day YOU were born?
