"Price Is What You Pay.
Value Is What You Get."

—Warren Buffet

Just like your wedding day, there should be a token of remembrance that surrounds the day you meet your baby for the first time.


When your labor begins, you should have complete confidence that your birth story will be photographed beautifully and the value behind your investment is worth it.


And Then There's This...


Let's be honest, there's so much more than money at stake here.


These are the memories of a day you can NEVER REDO!


When you call, I'm there. Even at 2a.m. Even if your labor is longer than expected. Hiring a professional means your partner or support people are 100% present and in the moment WITH you during labor and the bonding period after baby is born.

Payment Plan Available

My goal is to ensure that all families who find value in preserving their birth story are able to do so. I've implemented a payment plan for those that may like this option.

This entails a non-refundable retainer at booking, with the remaining balance due before 37 weeks. The balance can be broken up into bi-weekly or monthly increments, depending on the collection chosen and the time frame in which you secure your due date on my calendar.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How Far Do You Travel?

YES! I'm centrally located in Maryland, which allows me to travel throughout Maryland, Pennsylvania, Delaware, DC, Virginia.

** Travel beyond 1.5 hours outside of 20794 will be charged a travel & lodging rate.

When Should I Book You? Do I Need To Inform My Provider?

As soon as you believe that I am a good fit for you, I would recommend moving forward with booking. If you're interested in starting a payment plan, sooner is always best.

*Please inform your provider that you're thinking about hiring a birth photographer prior to booking. While many providers are on board, if you are planning a hospital birth or c-section, there may be policies in place with restrictions that I must know about ahead of time and abide by. For example, some hospitals prohibit videography, which means that booking a film collection would not be ideal for you.

Why Hire A Certified Birth Photographer?

Allowing someone other than a professional photographer to take photos of your baby's birth is like telling your wedding guests to take cellphone pictures on your wedding day. Birth photography preserves the beautiful memories of your unique and emotional birth story, including all of the details surrounding that day. It's true when they say that the instant your baby is placed on your chest, the mental memory of the day becomes a blur. The value of hiring an experienced professional in the genre of birth will always be worth the investment.

Are Payment Plans Available?

YES! There can be a lot of expenses for expectant parents, and while birth photography is considered a luxury to some and a must for others, your memories don't have to be out of reach. While a deposit is required to hold your spot, we can map out a payment plan that works best for you, with final payment due before 37 weeks. If you have a unique situation, I will do my best to work with you - just contact me.

*Things to consider:
-Add birth photography to your gift registry.
-Ask loved ones for donations to help with the expense.

Why Is Birth Photography So Expensive? What's Included In The Price?

Experience, time, and education are what my prices are based from. Keep in mind, this happens to be the only genre of photography where the photographer is required to be on-call 24/7 for 4-5 weeks.
Birth is highly unpredictable, and often unscheduled. You're also receiving a full-service experience from a full-time, professional photography business with high-end equipment.

You're investment includes:
-Complimentary consultation
- 24/7 on-call starting at 37 weeks until baby is born
- Unlimited coverage from active labor until your baby is born
- 2-hours postpartum coverage
- Travel
- Post production/editing time
- Licensed music (films)
- Products

When Do You Go On-Call?

On-call time starts at 37 weeks.

When Do You Arrive?

I'm prepared to meet you at your birthing place once you're in active labor or around 5-6 cm. COMMUNICATION IS KEY! I recommend designating someone to keep me updated with your progress once labor starts. Active labor may look different from woman to woman, so I generally gauge this based off of your history... and my gut! If you're a bit farther away from me, I will likely make the drive sooner so that I don't miss your birth.

How Long Do You Stay?

I'm with you until your baby arrives. I'm usually there for 2-hours postpartum to capture those unforgettable firsts (skin to skin, measurements, footprints, siblings meeting, etc).

What If You Miss My Birth?

We want to avoid this, so remember COMMUNICATION IS KEY! As soon as you feel like something is happening - you start having more frequent contractions, or your water breaks CONTACT ME so that I can prepare to make it to you in time. If your symptoms warrant a call to your OB, midwife and/or doula, I'm next on the list.

If labor happens to go unexpectedly fast and I miss your birth, I will still come to capture whatever I can to fulfill my obligation to you and deliver (as close as possible) the number of images promised.

What If Baby Decides To Come Early or After My Due Date?

Babies have their own agenda and don't care about due dates. If you go into preterm labor, contact me and I'll do my very best to get there asap. If you go past your estimated due date, I'm still on-call for you and will be waiting right along with you for baby's arrival.

Do You Use Flash?

Yes, and here's why: I'm expected to produce usable images that you will love and cherish. I'm confident that my camera is equipped to handle low light, but keep in mind, there must be some light available in order for my camera to catch focus... and for your film to be free from grain.

Moms have all said that they were unbothered or didn't notice the flash. Everyone is different, so if the flash is bothersome to you, just say the word and I stop immediately. The flash is bounced off of the ceiling or wall and never pointed directly at anyone.

Will You Post My Images Online?

It all depends on your level of comfort. The images in my portfolio gives others who may be interested in birth photography some insight into what it actually looks like and what my particular style is. HOWEVER, my first priority is YOU! I will never post graphic or more revealing images of you online that you are not comfortable with.

When Will I Receive My Images?

Within 48 hours after birth, you can expect to receive a "sneak peek". Your full password-protected online gallery and/or film will be ready in 4 - 6 weeks.
