a birth story

"There aren't any words...just tears! You are amazing and the film is priceless. I can never express how thankful we are that you were there with us for Brendan's birth, you captured things we had no idea you were filming...just perfect! These are the moments I never want to forget and every time I look at these pictures and watch the film I can't help but smile and cry...this truly is irreplaceable, thank you so much for being with us and capturing these pictures!"

an anniversary session

"We had Kelly do our anniversary photos. She managed to catch our spirit in the whimsical shots as well as the classic poses. It was a small order, but she treated us like her most important clients. We had a great time with Kelly!"

what to expect

a birth story timeline

GET BOOKED ASAP! I take on a very limited number of births each year. So DO NOT WAIT! I book up to 9 months in advance! A non-refundable retainer payment, along with a signed contract is due at the time of booking. 

STEP 1: ASAP

step 2: third trimester

step 3: during labor

step 4: after the birth

step 5: relax

Let's meet!! I love to offer the option of meeting with my birth clients during your third trimester. I feel that it's best to meet to get to know each other and get comfortable before the big day. I also take this time to go over details about what to expect as well as whether film or photo is most important to you during key moments. 

During the last few weeks before your due date, I will ask you to be in contact with me about how things are progressing. Once you are on your way to the hospital I ask that you contact me ASAP! I will need continued communication so that I know when I need to head to the hospital. I typically head to the hospital when you have reached 6 cm. However, you may be an exception depending upon what you've experienced during your past deliveries. Once I arrive I will capture details and stay until baby arrives, there is no time limit. 

After your baby is born I will capture the first hour post delivery. This will give plenty of time to capture your new family together for the first time, as well as baby details like tiny fingers and toes. This will also be a great opportunity for me to capture siblings and grandparents meeting baby for the first time. If time doesn't allow for me to capture siblings, a fresh 48 session would be a perfect add on for this! 

After I leave I will go home and back up all of images and film footage and begin the editing process. I will post a sneak peek on social media within 7 days. Then if your package includes a birth film, you will receive your film and edited images within 4-6 weeks. If you are opting out of a birth film, you will receive your images within 2-3 weeks! 

More and more hospitals and doctors are getting comfortable with the idea of birth photography. Most tend to allow a photographer in the operating room during a scheduled c-section, if you've asked permission first. However, it is ultimately up to the anesthesiologist on the day of the c-section. Also keep in mind, if you require  an emergency c-section, they will likely ask me to leave. That is OK! In the event of an emergency c-section, I will document the moments heading up to the OR, document your guests in the waiting room, and then continue documenting once you are back in recovery. 

01.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I HAVE A C-SECTION?

birth faqs

Some of my clients want every detail of the birth documented, while some want to avoid certain angles, and that's ok! I am happy to document the birth from whichever angle you are most comfortable. These are the things that we discuss at our in-person meeting during your last trimester. 

02.

what if If I am uncomfortable with crowning photos?

birth faqs

That's ok! If you'd prefer that I only capture photographs and no video footage for a film, you will receive a discounted rate.

03.

what if we only want birth photos?

birth faqs

To officially book your birth story, a non-refundable retainer payment is due at the time of booking along with a signed contract. The remaining balance is due 30 days before your due date. 

04.

How do I book a birth story?

birth faqs

I do my best to avoid using a flash during your labor and delivery. I feel that using one disrupts your focus and the ambience in the room. If I have no choice, I will use one. But please know, that it is only in situations where the room is almost completely dark. (no lamps, no overhead lights, no window light, etc.) 

05.

do you use flash photography during births?

birth faqs

Starting at 38 weeks, I am on call 24/7 until the day your deliver. My gear is ready to go at a moment's notice, I drive separate from my family during outings, etc. For every birth, I have a back up photographer lined up for emergency situations. For whatever reason I cannot be at your birthing location right away, I will have my on-call back up photographer join you until I can get there and take over. This is only in extreme situations. If you give birth earlier than 38 weeks, I will still join you at your birthing location as soon as I can.

what happens if you are unavailable for my birth?
