Why birth photography?
The question you really should be asking is "Why the hell not?"
We capture our birthdays. We capture our weddings. We capture our family.
Birth is a MONUMENTAL time in your life and is also probably the most easily forgotten. Hiring me as your birth photographer allows you to be fully present and still have beautiful memories of that time in your life.
"But...do I want to remember........that?"
By "that" do you mean: your baby's first breath? The raw and honest connection between you and your birthing partner?
I hear you, and to be honest, I've had these same thoughts. It wasn't until I actually birthed my first baby that I could fully appreciate just how BEAUTIFUL birth was. I missed my opportunity to capture that moment. I have no record of my baby's first moment earthside and I wholeheartedly regret not documenting the process.
There is more to birth than just your baby's head crowning, and whether you want "that" captured or not is completely up to you. I'm up for it if you are though!
The finer details...
If you've come this far, you already know how important your birth story is.
Now, down to the details...
My birth package is an all inclusive service. I want you to have the full experience, all the bells and whistles.
It includes complete photo coverage of your labour, birth and immediate postpartum period. I go on call for you for 4 weeks surrounding your due date and I stay to capture the first few hours of your baby’s precious life. Whether you labour for 4 hours or 24 hours, I am there with you every step of the way.
In addition to receiving your complete birth gallery, with all images hand edited by me, you will also receive a free mini maternity session at a beautiful outdoors location chosen by me.
As a preferred photographer with mamarentals maternity gown hire, my clients also get a 15% discount for any gown hire!
I want my client’s to be able to really hold their memories, to have something tangible.
So every birth client of mine also receives 100 fine art photographs from their birth, time stamped to really tie your birth story together.
All of this for $2,450.
I know, it's a significant investment but this is not a moment you want to forget. My packages are premium and so are my services; when you book me to document your birth I am with you every step of the way.
Due to the nature of birth, I can only offer 3 birth spaces per month; so if you want to know more, let's chat! Please use the contact form at the bottom of this page.
Interest free 'buy now - pay later' payment plans are available upon request and approval.

Not just a photographer...
When you hire me as your birth photographer you're not only guaranteed to remember this time in your life forever, you also gain a friend. I want to empower families to arm themselves with knowledge leading into their births and be well informed of their choices. Then on the day, when we are all waiting to meet your babe, I will advocate for you and your rights. I will support you when you need it and I will be there for you when you need an extra hand.
