We have a secret in our culture, and it's not that birth is painful. It's that women are strong. – Laura Stavoe Harm

The day of your child’s birth is by far one of the most special days of your life. Often people don’t realize it until after the day has come and gone, but the time goes by so quickly, key moments are missed and sometimes our memories can’t recall details due to the high emotions and hormones that come with labour.

Birth Story Sessions are the perfect way to tell the story of your labour and delivery and document it with beautiful professional photos. Each detail will be captured, including the way the room looked, the support your loved one(s) gave you throughout your labour, the moment your child is welcomed to the world, the first time you and your partner meet your child and the first hours of getting acquainted with your new precious son or daughter. Your partner and other loved ones supporting you can focus on their true role as your supporters and won’t have to worry about taking pictures. Instead of being the ones taking the photos, they can be in them too! All those first moments of bonding and celebrating that your family will be doing with your new sweet addition to the family will be preserved.

  • 3-5 belly shots edited and in hi-resolution, photographed at the client consultation (see here for some of the shots in the past)
  • On-call time from 38 weeks until delivery
