The birth of your baby is one of the best, most important days of your life. It's up there with your wedding day, and you hire a pro to document that! Hiring a professional birth photographer allows you to focus on the moment and not worry about needing to remember the details of how your birth story plays out. It allows your partner to be fully present with you and actually be in the photos. And it allows you the ability to relive and retell your baby's birth story for generations to come.

Your birth images are YOURS, first and foremost. I love to be able to share the beauty of birth, but it is not a requirement. We go over this in the consultation, as well as once I've delivered your images.
I live in Firestone, Colorado so I like to stay within an hour drive from home. This includes Boulder | Brighton | Broomfield | Erie | Firestone | Fort Collins | Greeley | Lafayette | Longmont | Louisville | Loveland | Thornton | & the surrounding Colorado areas.
I absolutely offer payment plans! There is a $200 non-refundable retainer fee to add your due date to my calendar, and the full payment is due by your 38th week. I am happy to set up weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly payments. In some cases, I may be able to set up a payment plan that goes beyond the 38 week mark.
I do tend to use my flash in low light situations. I never directly point it at you or baby, I bounce it off of the ceiling or wall. Most people don't notice it. I am happy to turn it off if it does bother you though. I do my best to use my flash intentionally when the lighting is low so that I'm not disturbing your labor.
I have a group of birth photographers I will backup for and they backup for me. Your backup photographer will likely be either Amy Quinn or Jessica Craig.
I work with a few other birth photographers in the area to make sure that we have backup coverage for births. If I am sick or have an emergency, or if I'm already at another birth, I will send my backup photographer.
If the baby comes faster than I can make it, or if I miss the moment of birth, I will still stay to document the first few hours of baby's life. I will also offer you a fresh 48 session the next day or an in-home newborn session when you get home.
I plan to be at your birth space when you are in active labor. This generally looks like your contractions are in a consistent pattern of 4-6 minutes apart lasting about a minute for about an hour. This varies in each person, so there should be a LOT of communication before this! I stay until 2-3 hours after your baby is born to document the golden hour of bonding and the newborn exam.
I go on-call for you when you reach 38 weeks. This means all of my equipment is charged and ready to go, my phone is on LOUD and on me at all times, my childcare is in order, and I stay close to home.
