When I first began photographing for clients, I was a newborn photographer. And I was the kind of photographer that only saw pretty in stylized pictures— babies all curled up in scrunchy poses, sleeping in baskets and hanging onto some pretty strange memorabilia. It took a few months, but I luckily realized that, more than any scene I could create, there's a certain unmistakable and greater beauty in what's real.
For many of us, becoming a parent is the most emotional and transformative journey our lives. Birth photography not only gives you an incredible way to be reminded of your strength and all the love that surrounded you throughout your baby's birth, but will also enable your child to appreciate everyone who was a part of his or her life in those early days.
Wherever you decide to labor, I'll be there alongside you and your birthing team to support you. I'll stay with you to capture your delivery all the way through your baby's firsts— all the while, catching the little moments and details that are important to your birth story.
Before your due date, we'll sit down together so that we can get to know each other and discuss how you'd like for me to capture your birth. Each birth story includes my on-call availability from 38-41 weeks, unlimited photography from your active labor through delivery, and a full collection of images— to one day, to pass along to your child. (A backup photographer will also be available for you, should the need arise).
