I capture the birth, so that your partner doesn't have to think about anything but you.
No matter where you decide to labor—at home, at a birth center, or at a hospital—I will be with you for the journey. My goal is to work seamlessly with the rest of your birth team, capturing all of the details along the way. I encourage you to speak up if there is anything that you’re uncomfortable with me photographing. I am happy to work with your level of modesty. My style is candid; I want to capture how your birth unfolds and I seldom do posed shots.
Doula and photography (doulatog) services
When hired as your doulatog, I am first and foremost committed to providing you with comfort, care, and creating a safe, nurturing environment for which to birth. If there is a moment when I am not hands on providing comfort, I will quietly pick up my camera and take a few pictures. My goal is to tell the story of your labor and delivery. And, of course, in the first golden hour after birth, I will be capturing those first magical moments--the cutting of the cord, the first weigh-in, the first feeding, and the looks of pure joy when you are able to cradle your newborn for the first time.
When do I get my photos?
Within two weeks of your birth, you will receive a USB key with all of your images, along with a "Print Release" that gives you the legal right to print as many copies of your photos as you would like. Due to the varied nature of labor, I cannot guarantee a certain number of photos, but as a general rule, the longer I am with you, the more photos I will return to you.
Can you photograph a cesarean birth?
You will need to speak to your caregiver to determine whether or not your photographer is allowed in the operating room, so consider bringing it up at one of your prenatal visits if this is important to you. If, for some reason, I am not allowed to be in the room, I will still meet up with you in the recovery room after the birth to capture your first moments together as a family.
