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. I can also be that fly on the wall too, if that is your style.
“During labor, let your voice be strong and unhindered. Women have been silenced in the birth room for too long.” - Lauralyn Curtis
Depending upon your budget, I have differing options available. I also offer payment plans, as well as accepting credit cards! Contacting me is the first start to getting your birth photographer!
To better customize and suit my birth clients, I have created an A la carte setup for birth, where you create your own package.
My birth packages start at $850.
This includes on call time from 37 weeks+, and up to an hour after birth, pictures will be delivered in an online gallery.
Then you can add any of these services or options into your package:
3-4 Minute Video: $200

*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 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 I capture some intimate moments.

Pricing includes driving to: FLW, Rolla, Lebanon, or Lake hospitals.
Includes approximately 30 digital pictures and a small 1 minute video. A la carte options available.

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.
