What is Birth Photography?
We have a lot of people ask us “what exactly is birth photography?” We are here to take the pressure off of you and your partner to get photos throughout your birth experience. You shouldn’t have to worry about documenting such a special event in your lives. Let us do that for you and we promise you will cherish the memories we are able to capture for you. No matter what birthing experience you are going for, we will be there to capture them in a beautiful and tasteful way.
Why hire a birth photographer?
Besides your wedding day, the birth of your child is one of the most important days of your life. This is the day you will look back on and want documented! There are tons of photographers out there, so why us? We are all labor and delivery nurses, so we know the ins and outs of the birthing process. We know our way around the labor suites, operating rooms, and recovery rooms. Because of our experience with labor and the birthing process, we feel we are able to offer you a superior birth photography experience.
What is a Fresh 48 Session?
These sessions are hospital newborn photography sessions that take place after your baby is born sometime before you are discharged from the hospital. Let’s be honest most of us will be talked into spending money on hospital photography when the hospital photographer comes knocking on your door. Who can say no to pictures of your new sweet baby?! Since you are going to end up spending the money anyhow why not book a session with us instead? We promise we will deliver beautifully edited pictures that are perfect for birth announcements! The best part of these sessions is that we come when it is convenient for you. If we need to take a break so you can feed your baby…no big deal! If you have other children these sessions are amazing for capturing their reactions to their new baby brother or sister.

How will I receive my images?
You will receive your images within 2 weeks via a password protected online gallery. With this gallery you will receive an email with the password and a link to view your images. You may send this link to family and friends as well. You will have the option to download all of your images directly to your computer from you gallery. We recommend that you do this as soon as you are settled in with your new baby as your gallery will go inactive after 3 months. You also have the option of ordering prints directly from your gallery and having them delivered to your house! You will have a print release that allows you to print your images anywhere but some people find it easier to print through our company. Whatever you choose is absolutely fine with us!
Will I receive a USB with my images?
We do not typically provide a USB of your images since we send them via a password protected online gallery. You may send your gallery to whomever you would like no matter how far away they live and they are able to download your pictures as well. USBs do not safely travel in the mail which is why we ultimately switched to using the online gallery. You may request to purchase a USB at an additional cost.
If I book both sessions do I get a discount?
YES!! You will receive a $50 discount for booking both sessions together!
Do you offer gift certificates?
YES!! We do offer gift certificates in any denomination. The perfect baby shower gift!
What happens if you miss my delivery?
We know labor and delivery can be very unpredictable. We ask that you keep us very informed as to your progress during doctors appointments and labor so that we can make sure we are there in ample time. If we miss your delivery for reasons that are out of our control (quick labor, not being given enough time to get to the hospital etc) we will arrive at the hospital during your recovery. If we miss your delivery during our on call period due to reasons that have nothing to do with you we will apply all money paid to a fresh 48 session or give you a refund. We haven’t missed a delivery yet!
What if I have to have a C-Section?
Every hospital is different as to how many people they allow in the operating room with you. We would love to accompany you into the OR for your delivery if the facility will allow us. If not we will be there right before you go into the OR and will be waiting for you as soon as you get into recovery. If you know that you will be a scheduled c-section we would recommend booking a Fresh 48 Session.
When is it best to book?
As soon as possible! We can only accept a limited number of sessions each month. Don’t miss your opportunity to book with us by waiting too long! As soon as you find out you have a healthy pregnancy you should book with us! If you have decided last minute that you just have to have a birth photographer please contact us because sometimes if some of our clients have delivered a few weeks early we will have a last minute opening!
So I’m ready to book! What’s next?
Great! We can’t wait to work with you! If you are booking us for birth photography and would like to meet with us ahead of time we would love to arrange a meeting- Just ask us and we will find a time! If you are booking a Fresh 48 Session we typically do not meet with clients ahead of time as it is not as intimate of a session as birth photography. However, if you really want to meet us before hand we will do our best to meet you before hand as well! To secure your date we require a nonrefundable $100 deposit. The rest is due by 37 weeks gestation. You can pay the rest at 37 weeks or you can make payments. The choice is yours!
If you have additional questions or are ready to book feel free to ask in the form below! One of us will respond within 24 hours of your email. You can also email us at email@example.com.
