BIRTH SESSIONS

Hiring a birth photographer allows your support people to focus on the important things and while still ensuring the beautiful details of your story are photographed. Birth & labor are very unpredictable. The lighting can unpredictable: the bright spotlights of cesarian birth to the candle lit lighting of a night home birth. Planning what’s going to happen (and when!) can be near impossible. I document your labor, birth as it unfolds as well as the sweet first moments after, in a photo-journalistic style. Having been on both sides of the birth process, I am sensitive to your needs as a laboring woman and understand my role is to document quietly and unobtrusively. 

The session fee for a birth sessions is $695 (this does not include digital files or prints). Session fees include full coverage of your labor and birth (beginning when active labor is confirmed) up to 2 hours after delivery, as well as a pre-birth consultation which allow us to discuss your desires for the session.  I will go on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, at 38 weeks gestation.  Ordering sessions are then held 4-6 weeks after birth in my Lake Oswego studio, allowing me to offer a completely customized, personal shopping experience, sending you home with beautiful prints, products, and digital images to treasure. After you view your images, you get to decide what you’d like to order. There is no minimum order requirement. Clients typically invest between $500 and $1,400 on a selection of wall art, digital images, and customized products such as albums and story boxes.

Sessions typically yield 100+ images available for purchase. You can view print & products available here.

Reserve your session by due date (limited availability).

FIRST DAYS SESSIONS

First Days (often referred to as Fresh48) sessions are for those new families who want the first few hours of their newborn’s life captured without having the entire labor or birth documented.  This type of sessions are held within the first 48 hours of your birth – during daylight hours, typically mornings – at the hospital, birth center, or at home. They are similar in style to my birth photography – minimal posing and natural lighting. My goal is to capture you and baby totally soaking in the first precious moments (meeting siblings and family members, first bath, breastfeeding etc.) while emotions are still high and everything is brand new. 

The session fee for a First Days session is $375 (this does not include digital files or prints) and includes a pre-birth consultation will allow us to discuss your desires for the session. Your ordering session is then held 4-6 weeks after birth in my Lake Oswego studio, allowing me to offer a completely customized, personal shopping experience, sending you home with beautiful prints, products, and digital images to treasure. After you view your images, you get to decide what you’d like to order. There is no minimum order requirement. Clients typically invest between $150 and $700 on a selection of wall art, digital images, and customized products such as albums and story boxes.

Sessions typically yield 25-50 images available for purchase. You can view print & products available here.

Reserve your session by due date (limited availability).

LIFESTYLE SESSIONS

Lifestyle sessions are genuine. Organic. Real. I encourage you to pick an activity or two you'd like to do during the session (baking cookies, playing at the park or taking a family walk) to keep you moving and interacting in an authentic way. We'll probably chat a bit, I'll get to know you and your family and I'll snap as we go. I plan for one to two hours per shoot, so you can rest assured that I'll take the time needed to authentically document the story of you. I'll capture some posed shots. I'll become a fly on the wall and capture lots of in-between shots. 

The session fee for Lifestyle sessions is $375 (this does not include digital files or prints) and includes up to 5 people being photographed. A pre-session consultation will allow us to discuss your desires for the session, as well as plan both clothing choices and location. Your ordering session will be held 1-2 weeks after your session in my Lake Oswego studio, allowing me to offer a completely customized, personal shopping experience, and sending you home with beautiful prints, products, and digital images to treasure. After you view your images, you get to decide what you’d like to order. There is no minimum order requirement. Clients typically invest between $150 and $700 on a selection of wall art, digital images, and customized products such as albums and canvas prints.

Sessions typically yield 25-50 images available for purchase. You can view print & products available here.

Participation in The Milk Stories is free. Sessions take 30min and are scheduled over a single weekend every month or two in predetermined locations within the Portland, OR area. The watermarked social media images will be available for you to share via The Milk Stories social media accounts or www.themilkstories.com once your story goes live on the blog. If interested in purchasing any of your images or viewing ones not shared on themilkstories.com, you can request an ordering session at my Lake Oswego studio.
