Birth is one of the most momentous, beautiful, and transformative events of your life. The anticipation and emotion in those hours before your baby is born, your strength during labor, that first breath, that first glimpse of your baby, dad's reaction... all are worth remembering.
Birth often leaves parents in a haze, and those details get fuzzy. I will capture those first moments for you. I am dedicated to documenting your birth in a way that is authentic to your experience, and celebrates the honest beauty in the details and important moments. Dad can put the camera down and be present to support you fully; he can be IN the photos instead of taking them.
Giving birth is a vulnerable and intimate experience, and your comfort is my priority. I capture births carefully, using flattering angles so you can share your images if you wish. I am dedicated to photographing as unobtrusively, quietly, and beautifully as possible.
Birth Stories start at $1800 and include a pre-consultation where we get to know each other and discuss your photography wishes, me being on-call 24/7 surrounding your due date, and a complete set of edited digital images.
Please contact me about my special "off-call" pricing. I also offer a discount for allowing me to use your images in my portfolio.
I photograph births in the Seattle area. If you are interested in having me document your birth, I would be honored to talk with you more.
Fresh 48 Sessions
As passionate as I am about birth photography, I understand that it is not for everyone. Fresh 48 sessions can be a great alternative.
These sessions are natural and unposed. They take place in the hospital or place of birth after mom and baby have had a chance to bathe and rest and during the day to make use of natural light. This is a great time to capture siblings or grandparents meeting the baby.
Fresh 48 sessions are at $550 ($300 with a Birth Story) and include about 60-90 minutes of photography time, fully edited hi-res digital files, and an online gallery.
