My birth sessions include both your birth and a fresh 48 session to follow and as well as my time being there and your edited images delivered via an online, password protected gallery with a print release. Black and white images are given for birth sessions to better reflects the mood of the occasion. Some color images are available upon request. There is no set number of images in my birth sessions as each birth is different.

I am "on call" at all times before and after your estimated due date until you go into labor. I ask that you keep me updated as much as possible. When you do go into labor, I have dad, a grandparent or whomever is going to be with you to call me immediately. That way, I can get to the hospital in plenty of time before baby arrives. I aim to get to the hospital when you are around 5-6 centimeters dilated and will stay up to 2-3 hours after birth to capture those first moments - First bath, weight, measurement, meeting of family members, etc.

The fresh 48 session that is included with your birth session will be done within 48 hours of baby being born, before you are discharged from the hospital. Fresh 48 sessions are lifestyle type sessions, meaning no posing or props. These sessions are best to capture the more candid moments and tiny details with the brand new baby. Fresh 48 sessions include parent and sibling photos, with the majority of the session focusing on baby!
