HOW DOES HIRING A BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER WORK?
As your birth photographer I will be on call 24 hours a day for 4 weeks around your due date, ready and waiting for your call!
I come along to your birth ( at home or in hospital) during active labour, stay for as long as it takes for baby to arrive and stay for up to an hour after wards. I am fully aware of how it feels to be in labour and experiencing a C section, I have three children of my own and have experienced both birth types. My style of shooting is unobtrusive, I don't use flash and I stay in the background as I document your birth story.
Before any of that happens, its great to chat on the phone and get to know each other a little better, then if you'd like to arrange a meeting we can do that at your home if you are planning a home birth or a local coffee shop. Not at any of those chats or meetings are you obliged to hire me as your photographer. These are so you can meet me in person and have an informal chat about birth photography to gather the information you need to make an informed decision. Also for me to find out more you, baby and your about your birth plan.
If you do choose to hire me, I will have all of the information I need when the time comes, I wont be asking you any questions during labour. I will know about your pregnancy, your birth plan,your family members, siblings even your dogs name! I will know if there are any aspects of the birth you preferred that I didn't photograph, I will know your wishes with regards to uncertainty such as if a home birth turn into a hospital birth etc.
I book just 1 birth session for each month.
I don't share any photographs with out permission.
