Birth is unposed, unplanned, and unpredictable.
Try as we may to plan and schedule, babies rarely follow the rules. Each birth requires weeks of on-call time, flexibility in scheduling, and a willingness to lose sleep. I want all of my clients to rest assured that I'm just as excited to capture the birth of their baby as they are to have it captured, even at 2am. I absolutely love the unpredictability of this niche and am thrilled to offer a unique and trustworthy experience to each family.
Birth Photography is documentary photography.
Nothing about your birth plan changes when you hire a photographer. It is my goal to quietly and unobtrusively capture the events of the day (or night) as they unfold, however long that takes.
Birth Photography is emotional.
We are talking about new life entering the world! It is absolutely incredible that we get to be a part of something so sacred and awe-inspiring. This type of photography is unique because I capture every emotion on the spectrum. From fear and pain to determination, relief and joy...I tell the whole story.
Birth isn't stiff or posed.
Sometimes, when parents are unfamiliar with birth photography, they ask if they'll be expected to act, stand, or look a certain way. Can I just take away that pressure? There is absolutely nothing extra you need to do to prepare for birth photography. You focus on supporting one another and delivering that sweet baby! I'll handle the rest.
You Might Forget I'm There.
It is not uncommon for moms to be so focused on laboring that they are unaware of who is in the room. I hope to fade into the background and capture these life changing moments for you, so as not to invade your birth space but provide you with precious memories you can recall for years to come.
It Only Happens Once.
Much like wedding photography, birth photography captures a once-in-a-lifetime event. While other sessions can be rescheduled if things go awry, birth photography offers no chance for do-overs or reshoots. Hiring a licensed, trained, and trusted professional will ensure you don't miss one precious moment.
