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 the birthing experience. No matter what birthing experience you are going for, we want to be there to capture it for you in a beautiful way!


Up to 6 hours of labor, birth and postpartum photos.  We recommend us coming in at 6-7 cm and staying through your recovery.  But we get it we are both labor nurses so we understand that is not always possible.  So we will get there when you want us there and leave when the important shots are complete. 

One of us on call 24/7 from 37 weeks – 42 weeks.  We will also try our best to make it if you go into preterm labor and have a preemie birth, however those can be quick and tricky.  But we will do our best.

Approved by you sneak peek facebook preview within 24 hours of birth.  This will allow you to share professional images and to have photos for birth announcements via facebook, email, and text.  

The rest of your 50+ images will be available to you in a password protected gallery available for direct download within two weeks.

Hiring a professional photographer was 100% worth the investment.

“Including Capturing Life Photography in my birth plan was the best decision I could have made for this special event. They stayed in touch during the weeks leading up, were patient with my false alarms, and Jessie arrived just in time for my birth. Her experience in the labor and delivery room was apparent, but she was focused on the photography task at hand. She got all the shots I asked for, including shots of a special surprise for my husband which I looped her in on ahead of time. She got us a preview shot within hours so we could announce to our friends and family, and the rest of the photos sooner than the promised time. The slideshow was beautiful and of course made us cry! Hiring a professional photographer was 100% worth the investment and I'd do it again every time. Can't say thank you enough!”

Melanie and Jessie were absolutely amazing!

“My husband and I were so excited to be welcoming our first little girl into the world. While preparing for her arrival we decided that we really wanted to hire a birth photographer. This was one of the best decisions we made. My husband and I were able to enjoy the first moments of seeing our beautiful baby without having to pull out our camera and worry about getting the perfect pictures.  As I look back at the photos that Capturing Life Photography took, I become tearful every time. They captured every little detail from me being in labor, to first holding my little one, to the instant love all our family members had when they first saw her.  I love that I'm able to relive one of the best days of my life through these pictures and can't wait to share them with my little one when she is older. Melanie and Jessie were absolutely amazing! They made us feel completely comfortable and it felt like 2 family members in the room instead of photographers. When my husband and I decide to expand our family again in the future we will definitely be calling Capturing Life Photography! Thank you for everything!”

It is soooo worth it!

“We used Capturing Life Photography about six weeks ago when we delivered our son. I had always said that I did not want any extra people in the room during delivery, but my husband and I are so glad that we decided to go with these ladies! Not only were our pictures ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL, but Jessie and Mel were amazing to work with. They stayed in touch with me throughout my pregnancy which I thought was awesome! I would highly recommend them to anyone...it is soooo worth it.”
