This is un-posed and more a photo-journalistic style of photography intended to tell the beauty of your story, the precious details of love and emotion through the birth process, baby's first moments with the family while capturing the newness of your baby and brand new tiny perfect features. (Consults throughout pregnancy are included to ensure that you are completely comfortable with the photographer's presence and she is fully aware of any changes throughout the pregnancy/birth plan.)



Without a professional photographer to capture these priceless moments to revisit and relive, they are typically so quickly faded/blurred with the exhaustion of birth and adjusting to a new baby, no matter how badly you want to keep them fresh in your mind. So many brand new emotions and details that get buried in the midst of visitors, feedings, diaper changes, laundry, sleepless nights, etc. It's just as life changing and precious (if not more) than a wedding day. Not to mention, newborns change so much in the first few days...even before the 5-10 day old newborn session takes place. Its not something anyone regrets once baby arrives and time starts fleeing by; however, the clients that have told me they wish they could go back and have those moments captured, are too numerous to count.

Birth Story payment plans are also available to ensure that you don't miss out on encapsulating these precious and cherished first moments due to financial restrictions.
