Birth Story Session Questions

Why Hire A Birth Photographer?

The moments of your birth will come and go so quickly that the photos that a trained birth photographer will take for you will create memories that last a lifetime. Allowing a birth photographer to be entrusted with this will free up dad or any other support person you may have on your journey with you to help you focus on the task at hand. They will also be able to be documented as being apart of your birth story!

What If I Go Into Labor At 1 AM?  Will You Be There?

Absolutely!!! I’m on call 24/7 at 38 weeks gestation. The key to all of it going smoothly is communication, and I go over that in your sit down birth consultation.

What If I Am Having A C-Section?

All birth experiences are so different but they are all important to capture! Most of my mamas who have C-Sections actually miss more because they are in the O.R. or recovery after the baby is born. If your OB and the Anesthesiologist will allow me into the O.R. I will gladly be there, if not Dad can take our camera in if he would like or I can take pictures of family in the waiting room in great anticipation of the new nuggets arrival!!

There Are Certain “Off-Limit” Things I Don’t Want to have Photographed. Is that OK?

100%!!! You set the limits of what you would like to have photographed, which we will go over in detail at the sit down consultation!

General Session FAQ

 

How Do I Book A Session With You?

I will get a “sneak peak” out to you with int 24 hours after the event if requested. Within 2-4 weeks your online, password protected gallery will be sent via email. I do not share private galleries, however, you may share this gallery with anyone you choose.

Yes, they are included in the collections (see pricing guide) and available for purchase. We also provide a print release is given so you can print at a lab of your choice. (I can give you lab suggestions)
