Birth Photography

newborn baby, meeting baby

Meeting your baby for the first time is pure magic.

To look back on those moment will be so precious. It is a present you will never regret gifting yourself.

Let me tell your story in pictures. Let me create amazing memories for you, from these precious moments. 

Birth photography is a passion for me and I have the courage to tell your story.

I will be there from when you go into active labour (for home births it's when you call your midwife; then you call me) and up to two hours after birth, capturing the first few moments of your new baby and their family.
I am happy to offer a free video call (not commiting) with me to get to know each other and to ask anything at all. Should you choose to book I will be happy to meet for coffee or at our maternity free shoot.

But why is there a premium for this service?

There are good reasons for this:

  1. Birth photography is highly specialised and localised.

  2. I am on-call for you for up to 4 weeks, 24/7. Any other shoots or my everyday life events will be rearranged or cancelled to make sure I get to you on time.

  3. I will spend many hours with you. If you are lucky to have a short birth, I will spend more time with you afterwards.

  4. I will be fully editing a very large number of images. That takes time. Video takes more time.

How can I afford this?

Here are a few options for you:

  1. Creating a money-pool. I am more than happy to do this for you. Some people will buy you a onesie or a teddy bear, but some people will ask you what do you actually need or want? These are the people who can contribute to the money-pool and help give you the most precious and significant baby gifts of all.

  2. Payment plan - I do not expect you to pay me all up front. 
    I will take a 35% deposit that will secure my services and your free maternity mini-shoot.
    A further 30% will be charged in the days after the birth.
    The rest 35% will be charged when the images and/ or video are ready for you.
    As this process can take up to 10 weeks, it will give you time to prepare.

 

What is a maternity mini-shoot?

 It is a shortened version of my full maternity shoot: 45 minutes of shooting time and 5 Fully edited digital images of your choice. 

Any other questions?

Please get in touch. I will be so happy to hear from you!
