You may be wondering if hiring a birth photographer is the right decision for you, and let’s be fair, it’s not everyone’s cup of tea. But there might be a few things you’ve never considered about what I do and why you are going to want me there to do it …
It’s a story worth capturing
I bet you spent a lot of money on a professional photographer to take your wedding photos. Why? Because it’s a cherished, once in a lifetime memory and the ability to pull out those photos and reminisce for years to come makes it all worthwhile. Imagine being able to pull up a photo of first time you saw your baby’s face, the moment they opened their eyes or let our their first cry. What if you could capture your baby’s tiny feet and features just hours after they enter the world. Incredible, right?
These are once in a lifetime moments.
Dad deserves to be in on the action
Usually, the job of impromptu-photographer falls on dad’s shoulders. Which means he isn’t with you, holding you, reassuring and comforting you – he’s digging through a camera bag and trying to get the flash to work.
Dad deserves to be an active member in the labor and delivery of his child. Nothing else should be occupying his mind. And he should be IN the pictures! Same goes for grandpa, grandma, your mom or your best friend!
Not all cameras are created equal – neither are photographers
It really comes down to what kind of final product you’re looking for. If all you need is one or two snapshots and you don’t mind the quality of the photos – you’ve got this handled. But when you hire a professional birth photographer, you’re going to get better photos – no, beautiful photos! You’re also going to get someone who has experience working around birth. I know how to remain unobtrusive while still getting the shots you want.
My skills and equipment also help me make the most of any environment and present you with journalistic-style photos that tell your child’s birth story in a way that is both dynamic and emotional. Quite frankly, you’re going to love them. You’re going to cherish them.
So is it for you?
If you’re anything like me, photos of the meaningful events in your life are priceless. A close second, is the comfort in knowing that hiring me means that from the moment you go into labor, I have one goal in mind: to get the best, most beautiful photos of one of the most amazing moments you will ever experience.
