Frequently Asked Questions
Why is birth photography important to you? +
As intense as labor and delivery is, you may assume there’s
no way you’ll be able to forget this time in your life.
I, myself have birthed 3 beautiful children. My youngest
isn’t even 1 and yet the details of that birth are already fuzzy.
Also, I have never witnessed more love than being a part of a birth.
When you are in the zone of bringing that baby in to the world, you
are receiving so much love and support from those that care about you.
That raw emotion is amazing and something you deserve to see.
What will you post? +
I will always send images over to you for review before I post anything online.
Your privacy is extremely important to me. Having birthed 3 children myself,
I understand that this is a very vulnerable time and I would never post anything
that makes you the least bit uncomfortable.
When should I call you to come over? +
You should call me at the slightest inkling of labor - even in the middle of the night!
Call once again when active labor is confirmed (keeping in mind the distance I am from you!).
How long will you be photographing? +
The goal is to photograph active labor through 2 hours postpartum.
Of course birth can be unpredictable and if baby comes quicker than expected,
then I will capture the moments immediately following the birth; a fast birth
is very much a part of your birth story.
What if something goes wrong? +
In the event that something tragically unexpected occurs, I will do whatever you want me to do.
In the case that communication with me isn’t possible, I will use my best judgment whether to stay or leave.
I will most likely stay, continue to document your story and deliver your images only when and if you are ready
to receive them.
