birth + babies

You're having a baby! Congratulations! As a mom myself, capturing families as they grow is something so near and dear to my heart. There is nothing like the first moment you meet your brand new baby, soaking in all those fresh newborn details or celebrating your babies milestones as they grow. I capture all of these moments so you can relive them for years to come as they continue to grow, turn in toddlers, and before you know it, teenagers!

 Below you will find all the details for birth, fresh 48, newborn, and milestone sessions.

birth stories

Birth stories begin at $800 and include documenting labor and delivery, beginning once you are in active labor (approx. 4-6cm) and ending following the actual birth, footprints, weight/measurements, and a 2-3 min. slideshow with photos + video clips. All images from your birth story are delivered via an online gallery and digital download. A retainer of 50% of the total is due at booking with the remaining balance due 1 month prior to your due date.

• Because births are unpredictable, if I am not able to make it to the birth I would get there as soon as possible to capture baby and family photos. (You would be refunded $200)
