It is very special and requires an investment of trust in the person that will be working with your precious new baby.

Birth centre, Homebirth or Hospital Labour Delivery
Whether you are having an intimate Homebirth, or having a planned hospital induction, capturing your little one’s entrance earthside is a moment not to be missed.
The transition from pregnancy to motherhood, the raw emotion, the over powering LOVE, the moments your birth partner held your hand and supported you through each and every contraction to welcome your sweet baby, the JOY, the tears, this is what I capture!
What do you get? I am on call for you 24 hours a day for up to 2weeks after your due date (by which time you should have an induction date). I arrive once active* labour is confirmed by your midwife (normally 5cm) or if you are having a fast induction then I come up earlier. I am there for the duration of the birth and for 1-2 hours afterwards (usually it’s catching the first breastfeed, weighing, measuring , cutting of the cord, first cuddles with Dad etc).
Your birth session fee includes your birth story of full-res digital images in both colour and b&w, delivered with print release.

A session retainer saves a place on my calendar for your little one’s newborn session. I understand newborn’s arrival is always a surprise so if you are not have a c-section or induction then we are able to use your due date as a guide and once baby arrives, the session date will be made!
