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.
