BIRTH STORIES


I am a photographer and a birth doula. My dream is to help mamas have beautiful supportive and positive birth experiences that they want to remember and cherish forever. From a planned c-section to a hands-off home birth, I believe that with the right support, birth can be positive and empowering in any setting! Birth is something that stays with you forever, it's SO important to feel supported during this time with a solid birth team.

Each birth photography package includes a phone or in-person consultation at least a month before your due date. Here we will discuss what your birth preferences are, when to call me and what my role is. I will be on-call from 38 weeks for photography and/or doula, and work with an amazing backup photographer in the event that I am unable to make it. I will stay after your baby arrives for about 1.5 hours to capture your first moments as a family.

For doula + photography clients, you will receive up to 3 prenatal/postpartum visits combined, wherever you feel you need more support. This will include tools and resources for you to feel ready and prepared for your birth, along with any questions you have answered about the birthing process. Postpartum visits include a de-brief on your birth, breastfeeding support, baby-wearing support and any baby or postpartum questions answered. Doula clients also receive use of my TENS machine during your birth.

** Birth photography is a powerful tool to be able to normalize birth and I absolutely love to be able to share photos to help raise awareness about how beautiful it is, however, sharing images is NOT a requirement of working with me. Birth is very private, and I completely understand wanting to keep it that way. As little or as much as you would like to share, I will completely respect and support your decision!** 

Add any newborn photography session onto your birth and you will receive $200 off that session

ONLY DOULA SERVICES $1050

I believe that every woman deserves a positive and empowering birth experience, whether that's a scheduled c-section or a home birth. I am a huge advocate of informed choice!

Doula services are offered on their own, or as an add-on to your Birth Story or Fresh Baby photography session. My doula births include 2-3 first moment images after baby arrives. 

Hiring me as your doula includes not only support during your birth, but also 2-3 Prenatal/PostPartum visits combined. Prenatal visit(s) include evidence-based education to help you make informed choices every step of the way, tools for you to learn how to have a positive birth experience even through the unexpected, and how your partner/birth team can best support you throughout your birth, both physically and emotionally.

Your postpartum appointment(s) include some basic breastfeeding support, emotional support, answering questions or directing you to other local resources, basic newborn care, baby-wearing, baby sleep and how your friends and family can best support you during your recovery.

My rate is $1050 for Doula Services only, or $500 when you add it on to a Birth Photography/Video package. 

Additional postpartum support is available at a rate of $25/hour during the day (3 hour minimum). This can include any extra help you need during your recovery time. Support can cover time where you just need to sleep and take a shower, someone to hold your baby for you while you rest, or help with things like laundry, dishes, grocery shopping, simple meals and other household tasks. No overnight support is available at this time.

If you are hiring me to photograph your birth, doula services are an additional $500. Add a FreshBaby or Newborn session and receive a $200 discount.
