So, maybe you’re intrigued by the idea of birth photography, but aren’t really sure what you’re committing to in hiring a birth photographer. Like, what is it we actually do? Well, take a few minutes and read on, because we’re going to tell you.
The comfort and privacy of our clients is a priority, and we will never knowingly do anything to jeopardize that. Now having said that, clients hire us to tell a story and document their birth, and birth is a powerful, intimate event. So in a very practical sense, we go where you go. If you’re laboring in the bathtub, we will photograph that. When you are pushing, we photograph that. We get creative with angles and lighting to photograph these intimate moments in a way that tells the story of now, while at the same time respecting your privacy. What we don’t do is invade your space, disrupt your vibe, or overstay our welcome.
Most of the time we will arrive at a birth during active labor, and we stay through the newborn exam. We attend births at all hours of the day and night…mostly the night…and we don’t charge more for longer labors. We photograph all types of births. Hospital birth. Home birth. Vaginal birth. Cesarean birth. ALL birth.
After your birth we will often put a preview picture on our Facebook page within about 24 hours. We do not ever post images on any social media platform without client permission. Our birth galleries are around 100 images, and they tell a complete story. Prior to the birth, we communicate with our clients about our current turnaround time for image galleries, and how to order products and digital images. We don’t have any hidden fees, they are all listed on our website.
