Birth & Fresh 48

“Giving birth should be your greatest achievement not your greatest fear.” ~ Jane Weideman

Giving birth is an incredible part of life, it is the beginning of a new chapter, a very special one. Whether you have a home birth or one in a hospital setting, it is a moment to cherish forever. I have 6 children and know that each and every baby and birth are different and I love to help other families have keepsakes to help remember it. 

 As your birth photographer, I come as more than just a photographer, I am there as support too. Perhaps you need encouragement, I am happy to give you that. Or maybe you need some lower back pressure, I will help you and your partner with that too. 

“During labor, let your voice be strong and unhindered. Women have been silenced in the birth room for too long.” - Lauralyn Curtis

 

Due to the unpredictability of birth, I ONLY  book two birth clients a month to ensure I can make it to your birth. This also means it is important to book as soon as possible. 

 

Depending upon your budget, I have different packages available.

                      Custom Packages

*Saint Louis, Missouri is approximately 2 hours from me, I will take on birth clients up there; however, please note, it will take me longer to arrive.*

 


                          Fresh 48s

Fresh 48's are pictures done within the first 48 hours of your baby's arrival, this can be done in the hospital or at your home. This isn't a posed session, it is more of a natural, you go on your way, and while I capture some intimate moments. 

  • Available to come within 48 hours after delivery.
  • Pricing includes driving to: FLW, Rolla, Lebanon, or Lake hospitals. 

 

                           Freshly Born

'Freshly born' package is for someone who wants something a bit more than a fresh 48, but not quite a full birth package. With this package, I come right after the baby is born. If your your little one is born at 2pm, I will be there as soon possible (as long as you keep me notified). 

  • On call services from 37weeks to delivery. 
  • Will be onsite up to 2 hours, will include 40 edited pictures and an announcement video. 
  • You will receive a customized 4x6 portrait box with prints, as well as (2) 8x10 standout prints. 
  • Includes a 20 minute in-your-home lifestyle newborn session with 10 edited pictures at 4-6 days old. 
  • Pricing includes driving to: FLW, Rolla, Lebanon, or Lake hospitals. 

         

 

 

Hiring a birth photographer is a huge decision, it is also inviting someone in during a very intimate moment, because of this the first meeting/consultation is free. Then around 36 weeks, we will schedule a lunch to get to know each other more, make sure your wishes are heard. 

Part of the birth story package means receiving pictures and video during labor, delivery, and after.
