About Birth Stories

Birth stories are full of raw emotion and beautifully intense moments. There is nothing more awe inspiring than capturing the moments when a couple becomes a family, a little boy becomes a big brother, a mom becomes a grandma… and on and on!  These are moments that pass too quickly, and trust me, you will treasure these images for years to come!

My goal during your child’s birth is to be unobtrusive while documenting the event. All births are completely different and each one just as beautiful as the last. Whether you are having a natural birth at home, or giving birth at a hospital via c-section, your birth can and should be documented!

During our consultation I will ask you about your birth plan, what you are wanting to capture, and it’s a great time to get to know each other so that you can be comfortable with me on the big day!

Birth is an intimate and beautiful event and I count it an honor to be there and help you preserve the memories!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What types of births can you attend?   I  have captured births at homes, birth centers, and hospitals (even c-sections), however it is important that you verify the policies in your particular hospitals to find out what they allow.

Do you travel for births?   I really wish I could, however due to the unpredictable nature of birth, I am only available for births in the Dallas/Fort Worth are in Texas.

How long will it take to get my final products?    I like to spend plenty of time working on each film and processing each image, I want to make sure it’s just perfect for you. I want the music in your film to complement your story, so that you are just in love with it when it’s done. Turnaround time is about 60 days to preview your film and 90 days to receive all your final products in the mail.

Will my images and film be color or black and white?   Most birth films are converted to black if lighting conditions are poor. If your place of birth is well lit, color editing is a beautiful option as well.

When should I plan to book?   As soon as possible, most of my inquiries are coming in as soon as mom’s find out they are pregnant, so if you want to secure your date, the sooner the better!

How do I book?  Once you know you want to book, we will plan a meeting time so we can discuss your birth plan, and get to know each other. I will also send you a link to the service agreement for you to fill out.  Once you complete the agreement and I receive the deposit, your date is booked!
