Birth Stories

Let's tell YOUR story, the welcoming of your little one...

The whole point of woman-centered birth is the knowledge that a woman is the birth power source. She may need, and deserve, help, but in essence, she always had, currently has, and will have the power.
— Heather McCue

Birth Stories

Birth is such an important time, not only in a woman’s life, but the whole family, it’s the welcoming of a new life into this world, into YOUR world. I usually compare it to a wedding!  It's something unknown, a new milestone in your life, in your life as a couple. 

So why even hire a birth photographer you ask? 

Well, at times, as birthing mamma’s we forget how much support we had, how we looked, what was going behind the scenes, the details in the home/hospital, your reaction to when you saw your baby for the first time, your partners unconditional love for you for being SO STRONG… having a photographer during this important moment allows you to keep the moment tangible and alive! 

I don't want a lot of people in the room, you say?

I can be considered a fly on the wall. I am respectful of your space the whole time and will stay out of the way of providers for them to do their work. 

Allow me the opportunity to capture this AMAZING moment in your life.

Father Testimonial

Initially when my wife and I were discussing birth photographers my thought was “do I really want someone there photographing such a private and intimate experience?” My wife felt strongly about having Shirley present at our birth to capture the moments to look back on.

I was still hesitant going into the birth because I didn’t want the photographer taking away from the experience or making herself present during our birth. I also didn’t want my wife to be affected by having photos taken but she was unaware of Shirley’s presence. I’m so glad we went through with having Shirley there as those are some of my favorite images to look at. There’s no way I could forget that day but being able to look at the images makes the memory flood back much more vividly.

I was nervous about her presence but she was able to remain in the background during the whole experience until it ended with our baby boy arriving earth side. She then took some posed pictures that I am so grateful for also.

I would suggest anyone wanting to remember the special day of their child’s birth to have a birth photographer present. Especially Shirley, she rocks.

In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Session

Let's capture those little details of our newborns. They grow so quickly and at times we forget how they looked during the first fewdays in earth. Document how you spent those days with the little one, include the sibling, the fur baby (we love fur babies), and remember these days for life!

    Welcome Baby Newborn Session

    This type of session is extra special as it is done while baby is 48 hours new. These are done at the hospital or at home. We aim to capture the emotions of those first hours, the siblings and family meeting the new additions. This session is all about the raw emotions and details of our little one. 

    Given the short amount of time between the baby being born and the day of the shoot, the photographer will follow up with Momma during her last weeks of pregnancy in order to plan to be at hospital/home as soon as possible. This also explains why the cost is different than a newborn lifestyle session.
