This package is about the journey undertaken from the labour process, through delivery, to meeting your beautiful new baby and introducing to your loved ones. This package utilises the Story Telling/ Family Photo-Journalistic Photography approach, where the documenting of images is about capturing one of the most intimate moments within any family – the emotional, spiritual and physical aspects of that amazing birthing process.
Making the decision to have a birth photographer is highly personal, as it is such an intimate experience. I would encourage lots of questions, both over the phone and face to face – it is imperative that you feel comfortable having that extra person in the room, acting as a fly on the wall, honouring your space. The benefits of having a Birth Photographer present are significant, capturing a truly magic life moment, where mum remains focussed on birth, Dad on protecting her space, with someone present, who can work in a fast moving, low light situation, ensuring those once in a lifetime images are captured and the story of baby’s arrival is documented forever.
Every Birth Package includes –
- Both a telephone and face to face one to one consultation either at home or a coffee shop, to have a chat and get to know each other. We will meet to discuss and personalise your photography plan, and can look through some examples to get an idea of the look and feel you would be interested in being captured
- On call, ready when you are, from the time you reach 38 weeks in your pregnancy
- Full coverage of your labour (arrival time to be agreed) – including those first few precious hours after your birth as mum and dad get acquainted with this precious little person
- The session will include a First Moments element, where we hope to capture the first weighing and measurements, the first feed and first family portrait
