Maternity & Newborn Questions
CAN MY SPOUSE AND CHILDREN JOIN THE MATERNITY & NEWBORN SESSION?
Absolutely! Spouse/significant others are definitely welcome! If you have children they are encouraged to participate in the session! Not only is this a special time in your life, but in theirs as well!
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY MATERNITY SESSION?
I suggest Client's book their maternity session for when they're between 33-36 weeks pregnant!
WHAT IS A FRESH 48 SESSION?
A fresh 48 session is a session that takes place within 24-48 hours after birth. They can be in the hospital, birthing center, or home. This is more of a documentary style of session as I document the first few hours after your little one has entered the world.
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE MY NEWBORN SESSION?
I suggest that Client's book their newborn session and fresh 48 session a few months or weeks early to insure availability. The official date can be set once baby arrives. I suggest that your lifestyle newborn session be within two weeks of life, but it's not necessary!
WHERE DO LIFESTYLE NEWBORN SESSIONS TAKE PLACE?
Lifestyle newborn sessions are held in client's home, but will soon be available at my in home studio space.
for your home i recommend the living room, bedroom, nursery! I suggest a room with a large amount of light or windows.
WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE YOU TO PHOTOGRAPH MY BIRTH?
Birth photography is not for everyone and that's okay, having a professional birth photographer is for people who want to have images of their birthing experience, but want their birth partner to live in the moment with them and not have to think about pulling out their phone or camera. I'm dedicated to capturing the emotion in the room while trying to go unnoticed as possible.
WHAT HAPPENS AT MY CONSULTATION?
At the one-on-one consultation we will talk about what to expect during your birthing session. We will discuss what images you are comfortable with and what your limits are. We will go over your vision of what you want the birthing session to be and discuss any questions you might have.
WHAT IF I DON'T WANT MY IMAGES ON THE INTERNET?
Totally understandable! you do not have to sign a model release. however, if you do the images i post are never graphic and if they are i will ask your permission before sharing.
WHEN DO I BOOK MY BIRTH SESSION?
I usually book birth stories anywhere from 3-5 months in advance. However, some parents book their session earlier. Booking early gives you plenty of time to pay for your package through a payment plan and can insure i have availability since I only take a limited amount of bookings each month.
do you offer payment plans?
yes, yes yes! I offer payment plans but the balance is due before 38 weeks when i begin my official on call time. I also offer registries so you can add that to your wishlist of baby items from family!
