Birth  Documentary  Photo  Package

The package includes documentation of active labor, delivery, and postpartum portraits with parents so this will vary in exact number of images depending on length of labor and many other factors, but tends to run 25-60 images.  Each will be carefully edited and chosen to fit your specifications we agree upon at your prenatal visit.   The final images will be edited and uploaded to a Google Drive file in a shareable size and a printable size format. When requesting my services as a birth photographer only the price is $800 which includes my on-call time and being available at short notice around your due date. I am also a member of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers.

Additional:

-Professionally printed board book of the set of images, $50.

Birth  Photography  with  doula  services

When ordering a package with doula services it is important to remember that I will primary role will be as your doula, so being birth photographer takes a back seat most times. I will do my best to get laboring pictures, but things can happen to change our birth plan and it will be more important for me to focus on helping the family labor. When I'm your doula pictures will be mostly the birth moment and postpartum bonding.  I am happy to answer any questions on how birth photography works or meet to discuss details. Fee for photography with doula services is $300 which includes:

 

Included:

-Google drive file of the final images as watermarked JPG's and printable final images up to 4x6

Additional:

-Birth story slideshow is also available for add on, $50.

-Professionally printed Board book of final images, $50.

Documentary Family or Event Storytelling Photo Session

I will document any event or family activity in a 3 or 6 hour session. The images are then carefully edited to tell the story. Contact me for details on pricing, but packages start at $300-600 and go up based on time and final product desired. The basic package includes an archival flush mount photo book from Artisan books, and watermarked jpg images for web upload. Reprintable image files are extra.

 

Payment Options

Deposits are due upon booking so I can reserve your due date in my calendar, as I only take a limited number of births and sessions per month. Deposit is 50% of the total, and the remainder is due at the last prenatal appt or 38 weeks or birth documentation or upon delivery of final product for family or event sessions.  I accept PayPal payments, cash and check.

 

Most sessions can be scheduled in advance or with short notice.  I will travel within a 30 mile radius for the sittings.  All are done naturally, so without posing or lighting, and usually take about 1 hour.  We will use existing window light or whatever we have.. A selection of the best 20 images will be edited and you'll recieve printable files up to 5x7 provided on flash drive, plus watermarked web sized sharable files will be included.  $250 for parents, siblings and infant in a one hour sitting. Additional family members are $50 each.
