The “Birth Story”
Have you ever considered having the story of your birth photographed and told in a picture format?
More and more women are choosing to have their birth story photographed and told in picture format that last a lifetime.
Birth has a funny way of making everything seem hazy and often not allowing us to remember the smaller details. There are some things that we could never capture on our own like….the way your partner held your hand during a contraction….the look of love between you and your partner….the strength you gained from their support….the look your partner has as you/they bend down to receive your child….the look on your face, intermingled with joy and surprise as you birth….the moment you and your baby both find each other’s eyes for the very first time….
An experienced birth photographer will be able to provide this for you in an unobtrusive and professional way creating moments and memories that you and those close to you can treasure forever.
Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?
The package will include being on call from weeks 38-42

‘Fresh 48 and Newborn’ options
If you feel that birth photography is not for you but you still want fresh professional photos of your new baby, then a ‘Fresh 48 and Newborn’ package is a great option for you. At this stage, your baby will retain all their tiny creases and may well be still in an in utero position. Just precious!
This package takes place within 48 hours of birth and typically when you are back in the comfort of your own home if you had chosen a hospital birth.
There is also the possibility of my attending as soon as you have birthed, subject to an additional on-call fee.
Following these initial pictures and between 4-6 weeks after the birth, you can book another shoot to document ‘A day in the life of ….’.
I create a ‘lifestyle’ newborn shoot as opposed to the more posed shoot with props and bonnets (although props and bonnets can be used and supplied by you if you wish). You can choose whether you would like these pictures to be taken at home or at a local destination of your choice to capture you, your partner and your newborn and of course being a family together.
Allowing between 3-4 hours session time between the shoots. Priced from £750+
Fresh 48 and Newborn Photography includes:
- Pre-shoot get together before baby is born to discuss the images you hope to have and may like to have (dependent on the day)
- Up to 4-8 hours in total of photography to allow for feeding and comforting breaks (roughly 2 -4 hours per session)
- 4 photos available within 48 hours to share with family and friends
- Approximately 20-30 edited images, often more, uploaded to your own password protected online gallery.
- Where you and your family can view and save your images within a month of each individual shoot
