Q: What if I already have 3 people attending my birth?
A. I have been the 4th and even 5th person in the room for many births in the Atlanta area. Many nurses do not mind or even notice the additional person.
Q. I really want photography but I am not sure we can afford it.
A. Many people who may feel like they cannot afford a photographer actually discover that it is more doable than they thought, especially if they book early. A deposit holds your spot and then the remainder is not due until your 36th week of pregnancy. I offer payment arrangements and also gift registries so family and friends can contribute to your photography package.
Q. How does it work? What if I go into labor at 3 am?
A. I am on call for your birth from 38 weeks to 2 weeks after your due date. In that time I will be prepared to go when you are in active labor. That usually tends to be 3am and surprisingly I get very excited when I get that 3am call and find out its “go time”
Q: What if you cannot make it to my birth?
A: I work with other birth photographers in the area as backup. In the event that something happens and I can not make it to your birth you would have a backup in my place.
Q. Do you offer doula services in addition to photography?
A. Yes I will offer doula services if you would like in addition to photography as an add on.
Q. I want pictures but do not want them to be graphic.
A. The majority of the pictures I take are not graphic. I encourage moms hiring me to wear a sports bra until after the baby is born. Your modesty is of the utmost concern and I will meet with you prior to your birth to make sure I understand what you are looking for. If you want crowning shots, I will take them. If you do not, I will make sure I take them at a different angle. Some moms may not know what they want so I can also take some and put them on your flash drive for a later date if you decide to change your mind.
Q. Do you do video?
A. Yes. I do full video coverage and birth movies. This is my favorite thing to do right now!
