All packages include 24/7 on-call time starting at 38 weeks along with coverage of your birth from the latter part of labor until approximately 2-3 hours after delivery. Each package also includes your high-res images for digital download and/or a DVD of your birth story video.
We know birth - it's unexpected ways, twist and turns, ups and downs, it's fear and courage and joy. We also know our cameras, whether it's sunshine streaming through your bedroom window, dim candles are lit by the birthing pool, hospital spot lights, and everything in between. We love to tell your story in a way that's truest to every detail while professionally capturing one of the greatest days of your life.
3 of us share call each month depending on how many clients we take on. We have a complicated but beautiful schedule laid out that is solely our responsibility to manage so you'll be given the number to dial when the party gets started, and we'll take care of the rest.
All packages include our 24/7 on-call time starting at 38 weeks. Whether an early Monday morning or late Saturday evening, our phones will be on and ready for any baby activity!
We attend births in homes, hospitals, and birthing centers and do photograph c-sections with your doctor's permission. It's always best to check with your care provider prior to hiring a photographer, just to be 100% sure.
Our goal is to be as invisible and unnoticeable as possible. Depending on the birth location and circumstances, we like to come in and out of your room allowing you guys to have moments to yourselves and to not feel watched. Slower births allow more time for us to grab images/video and then leave you guys alone while at fast moving births, we're working diligently to capture everything going on.
Our style and personal preference is to not use flash. Natural light from windows or available lights indoors are utilized first (depending on what mama is comfortable with, of course) but if the light is too low, we'll use a flash that is bounced off the ceiling - it's quite unobtrusive. All video is captured with only natural/available light.
The beautiful part about our system is we have each other when life happens. If one of us is sick or out of town, there are plenty of others to step in and do a job well done. We'll handle everything logistically and you would still get the same professional photos and/or video you were promised. Like we say, better together!
