Why hire a birth photographer?

Birth photography is a celebration of the amazing ability of the female body to bring forth new life. Birth photography captures the beginning of your story as a new family or as you expand your family. Birth Photography preserves the memories in your mind to be recalled easily. Simply by browsing through your photos, your story is told clearly and accurately .. again and again. And the most important reason .... The birth of your child is one of the most important and cherished moments of your life. Soak it all in and preserve every second that you can because memories fade with time, but photos can freeze moments in time and are cherished heirlooms that last for generations to come. 

Why hire a doula?

A doula is a trained professional who provides continuous physical, emotional and informational support to expectant parents before, during and shortly after childbirth to help achieve the healthiest, most satisfying experience possible.  A doula nurtures, supports and offers expert guidance for families during their pregnancy, birth and early postpartum time. There is incredible evidence that shows how birth doulas improve outcomes! Studies have shown that continuous support during labor has clinically meaningful benefits for women and infants. All women should benefit from the support of a doula throughout labor and childbirth.  

When should I contact you if I'm considering birth photography, doula or lactation services?

As soon as you discover you are expecting. I only book a limited number of on call births per month in order to ensure that I am available to my clients. Based on your estimated due date, if you wait too long, I may already be booked for that time frame. That being said, don't hesitate to contact me even if it's later in your pregnancy. For lactation, it's best to contact me just to meet and get to know each other before your baby arrives. Your initial consult during pregnancy is FREE and intended to get you prepared to reach out if and when you need assistance. 

Can we talk pricing?

Sure we can! My birth clients typically budget to spend between $850 to $3000 depending on what services and add ons they desire. My birth stories start at $850, portrait sessions start at $200. I do offer payment plans and a gift registry option to help with planning  your birth experience. 

What do you offer?

It's my passion to tell the story of your family. I offer maternity, birth, newborn, and breastfeeding photography and video. If it applies to pregnancy, birth or babies .. I'm your girl. I offer personalized lifestyle maternity sessions, milk or herbal bath sessions for maternity, bonding or breastfeeding, henna belly maternity sessions, birth photography and videography, Fresh 48 sessions, Lifestyle newborn and studio newborn and sessions for breastfeeding milestones! I offer doula and lactation services as well as bundle packages!

Are there any doulas that you recommend?

 I accept a limited number of doula clients and doula/birth photography clients per month. I am also fortunate to be able to work closely with an amazing network of birth professionals. Go check out My Sunshine Birth Services to get more information on each of the network members! 

Do you offer payment plans?

ABSOLUTELY! I'm more than happy to set up an individualized payment plan that meets your needs. Just contact me and we can discuss it further. ​
