The birth of your child will be one of the best days of your life. It will be full of beautiful moments and every emotion imaginable. Hiring a professional ensures that all the details, big and small, will be preserved forever.
What is birth photography?
Simply put, birth photography is the documentation of the labor, birth and initial postpartum period. But birth photography is so many things… It’s capturing the strength of a mother, her bravery, the support from those she surrounds herself with, the smile when she finally meets her baby, the pure joy on her partner’s face, excited grandparents, adorable babies, the list goes on and on. But mostly, Birth Photography is a Celebration of Life and Love!
What types of births do you attend?
I believe all births are beautiful and serve families throughout the Dallas Forth Worth area, no matter their birth preferences. Home, birth center, hospital, c section, regardless of the location or birth plan I would be honored to tell your birth story.
When do you arrive?
I stay in communication with you and your labor support team to help determine the best time for me to arrive. My goal is to join you during active labor, ideally when you are approximately 6-7 centimeters dilated. Not having cervical checks, no problem, we can use the intensity and pattern of your contractions to help gauge the right time for me to come.
How long do you stay after the birth?
Approximately 2 hours. I want to capture those precious first moments which often include the newborn exam, breastfeeding, and lots of cuddles with mom and dad.
What if you miss the birth?
In the event I am unable to attend your birth due to sickness or another unforeseen event a professional back up birth photographer will be available.
In the event of a super fast labor and birth I will still come to your birth location and capture your story. Depending on the circumstances a Fresh48 or Lifestyle Newborn session may be offered.
Do you use flash?
I utilize whatever light sources are needed to obtain quality images. If I do utilize flash it is very discreet, most laboring moms don't even notice it. With your permission, I may also open curtains or adjust available lights.
I really do/do not want graphic images. Is that okay?
This is YOUR birth story. The type of images you do and do not want captured is something we will discuss prior to your birth. If you want crowning shots, great, the woman’s body is incredible!! If you’d prefer to keep things more discreet that is awesome too.
Do you share on social media?
I love sharing birth stories, but I happily honor requests for privacy as well.
