A birth story is the photographic tale of your labor and delivery experience, from contractions and ice chips to snuggling with your new baby bug in your arms. Your story will be beautiful, it will be unique, it will change your life, and it deserves to be documented and remembered exquisitely.
Like many important and impactful events in life, the birth of your child is a whirlwind of people, moments, and emotions. Having me there to capture this life-changing event allows you to focus on you, baby, and family without stress or worry over a detail being forgotten or a photo opportunity being missed.
Unlike a typical portrait session, there is no direction on my part while taking photos. I simply observe and photograph the story and emotions surrounding you, from details of the room you are staying in to your husband’s hand grasping your shoulder in reassurance. I am careful to photograph from angles that are pleasing and flattering as well as tasteful and modest in composition and content.
I’ll keep tabs on you and baby’s progress during the weeks leading up to the big day — when baby is ready, I am, too! After the ‘It’s time!’ call or text, I will drop everything and anything to meet you at the hospital or your home and begin working to capture your great event. I’ll stay as long as it takes to capture your very first family portraits with the newest little one. (5 a.m.? 17 hour delivery? Emergency C-section? I’m there, regardless.)
