Birth Photography in Austin, TX
I provide you with a professional photo-journalistic story of your birth experience & with beautiful images that will last a lifetime. I work unobtrusively to capture all the memories of this incredible time.
Birth photography is one of the most incredible gifts you can give yourself as well as your child. I capture all those moments that may be missed or forgotten during labor and delivery. Whether giving birth at home, at a hospital, or at a birthing center — a birth photographer allows your support team to focus on the needs of you and your addition soon to enter the world. I provide you with a professional photo-journalistic story of your birth experience and with beautiful images that will last a lifetime. I work unobtrusively to capture all the memories of this incredible time.
We will speak prior to your third trimester to talk in detail about what you would like to have captured as well as those moments you would like to remain private. We will discuss your birthing location and the other members of your birth team.
It is important to get clearance from your obstetrician and any on-call physician, labor and delivery staff, midwife or doula present at the birth. Let your doctor know that you want your birthing experience photographed and that you’ve hired me. I am happy to work with any restrictions your doctor may have.
Although all clients are asked to sign a model release, you remain in control of what images are shared on social media or kept in my portfolio. These are your personal and private images, and will remain just that should you choose.
You’ll want to contact me once you have gone into active labor and give me your room number. I will come to your birth when your healthcare provider determines you are in active labor. This is usually between 5-6 cm dilation. I will continue to document your experience for at least one hour after delivery.
Though every effort is made to make it to your birth before your little one arrives, unforeseen circumstances do sometimes arise that could prevent me from making it. In the event that I am unable to attend your birth (illness/family emergency) I will contact my back up photographer that has been a photographer for over 10 years.
I am on call 24/7 from 38 weeks until the time of delivery
I require a %50 deposit 2 months before your due date.
Due to the nature of birth photography payments are non refundable.
