Before having children and discovering my passion for birth, I went to college and received a Bachelors in Fine Art in Illustration. I took a few photography classes and really enjoyed them! I have a pretty good eye for composition.
Now I would like to combine the two into one. If you hire me as your labor doula, I can take photos and/or video if you like (but of course my first priority is hand-on care for you!). It’s totally included in your doula services fee!
FEE: Minimum $500 for 6 hours, $50/hour after 6 hours capping out at $850 (so you don’t have to have a meter running, plus the opportunity to pay less if the birth is quick). $50 for editing photos and putting on flash drive.
I take, on average, 300-700 photos per birth which are all yours to keep, share, and reprint as much as you want. I can upload all photos within days of the birth to a private online album where you can download high-res images or share with more impatient friends and family!
My birth photography has been featured on the cover of the AIMS Journal as well as other journals and magazines!
Here is some of my work, if you would like more examples please email me…
