HOW IT ALL WORKS

I'll be there from start to finish with you, whatever that means for you, your family, and your birth. This is where you can find details on what to expect, how to book, and price.

I'M THE KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHER THAT LOVES CATCHING EMOTIONS, TENDER MOMENTS, AND RELATIONSHIPS AT THEIR BEST, MOST REAL. THIS IS EXACTLY THE KIND OF PHOTOS YOU'LL GET OF YOUR BIRTH TOO.

WHAT TO EXPECT

  • Labor is long and births are so personal! It's a huge priority of mine that we get to know each other early on and feel comfortable being real together -- because I'm going to see you naked and doing the hardest/coolest thing you've ever done! Which is awesome! We can meet/talk as many times as you want before the birth. I want to be a positive energy in your room, help where I can, and document your story exactly as it happens. We'll make a custom plan for your birth photos together, whatever that means for you.
  • I am on-call the 4 weeks surrounding your due date. That includes holidays, blizzards, and 3 AM deliveries (TBH I'll probably be awake at that time anyway).
  • I'll be there with you through active labor, and 2 hours after birth to photograph baby's exam, meeting parents, and first latch.
  • I'll send you the first few photos within 2 days so you can celebrate with them. The rest of the images will be edited and delivered to you within 6 weeks.
  • Always included is an online gallery where you can view your images, order prints, and share. You are welcome to print your images at home or through me. Your gallery comes with a built-in personalized print store where you can order high quality professtional prints, printed albums, and gifts.

I'm there as a support person while I document. We'll laugh and talk along the way, and end up the kind of forever friends who feel connected even when we don't always talk.

AVAILABILITY + BOOKING

I only book one birth per month so my attention and energy aren't spread too thin, and there's no risk of early or late babies conflicting with each other. I try to keep this page updated with my available months for 2022:


JANUARY / FEBRUARY / MARCH / APRIL / MAY / JUNE / JULY / AUGUST / SEPTEMBER / OCTOBER / NOVEMBER / DECEMBER


All of these steps should happen to book:

  • SEND ME A MESSAGE! We can answer each other's initial questions over email/text/phone.
  • IN-PERSON or VIDEO CHAT. Let's get together for a longer chat face-to-face. This is where we can get to know each other a lot more and go over all the details. It gives us a chance to make sure we gel and can spend hours of labor together.
  • PAYMENT and AGREEMENT. Whenever you're ready to book, whether we've gone over the finer details in person yet or not, your birth month is officially reserved for you with a retainer and signed electronic agreement.


A $500 non-refundable retainer is due at the time of booking with the remaining balance due by the end of 36 weeks.

I'm committed to making birth photography available to everyone - payment plans and trade options are on the table.

PRICE

Birth story sessions are $1500. And most families plan to spend a minimum of $300 on prints and albums.


always included:

Online Gallery

Your final images will be sent to you in an online gallery where you can view, print, download, and share with your loved ones.

Print Store

A personalized store where you can order professional, high quality prints for your walls and gifts.

Digital Downloads

All the digital files from your album can be downloaded to your own computer. You are welcome to save and keep them. A print and use release is included.

Slideshow

Along with your gallery, I include a slideshow of highlights suitable for sharing with friends and family. It's set to music and is yours to watch and share as much as you'd like.

"I had my worries about birth photography, but I was not nervous about hiring Becky. We had good conversations before about what to expect, and she did exactly what we talked about! Birth is a very emotional process and in the end Becky captured the emotions and feelings of the day beautifully. I really cherish the photos!"

Let's do this! SEND ME A MESSAGE.


I'm so looking forward to hearing from you about your birth and photo dreams. Contact me for more info and let's start talking.

Send me this message and I'll get back to you super soon with answers to your questions. The more info you tell me, the better I can fill you in and we can figure out if we're a good fit for each other!

"Looking at the photos really helps me remember and appreciate what an amazing job I did birthing my son!"


Optional extras:

Printed Albums

Professionally printed + bound, linen or leather albums starting at $150. These albums have thick, lay-flat pages and can be for yourself or gifts for family. They're a really sweet, luxurious way to look at your photos for many years.

Flash Drives

Although you can download your images yourself to your own computer, I'm happy to make you a flash drive for $50 with all your final images so you have a back-up forever.


Newborn Sessions

A photo session at home or in the hospital a few days after the baby is born is a great addition to your birth story. Sessions are $350 as an add-on.
