Birth Photography and Videography
Birth photography is one of the main services of my company while often it stays behind the curtains. I would love to give some information for those who is interested in birth films or photography.
We are based in Weehawken, NJ and serve all Northern Jersey and NYC area. We photograph natural and caesarean births in birth centers, hospitals and homes. The first thing you would always want to ask your provider is that if the hospital you are planning to give birth allows photography or videography ( depends on which service you pick).
I am currently only taking 2 to 3 birth clients a month with the dates being spread around to make sure I can focus on each of you. In case of a rare situation, that both my clients would go into labor in the same day, I have a team member who provide the same quality of service as me and more than that, a wonderful human being, which is soooo important!
How this works:
Birth Photographer is on call 2 weeks before your due date and until your baby is born. We have an initial phone call where we discuss all the details specific to your birth plan and any circumstances that may rise.
I will come and photograph the active labour, birth and a couple of hours following the birth. Every birth is different and usually requires me to be with you for many hours over night. As a provider of birth photography and videography business I am committed to be with you as many hours as needed, while your package will cover only up to 12 hours. After that every each hour have a small fee ( request prices online).
What if I’m having a C-section:
If you are having a scheduled C-section and you are pre-approved by your provider for me to take photos I will come to the hospital in the hour or two before your scheduled time so we can capture the preparations and excitement. Sometimes things change on the go and hospital team may refuse me to enter OR. In this case I will offer to give a camera with setting on to one of the nurses or will have to skip that part and take over again when you arrive in recovery and follow the hours following. Your doctor make best choices for your safety and I have to accept these rules. Your film or movie will still be priceless while you need to be aware of that specificity before booking..
There are two package options for birth our services:
include all photos from your birth and few hours after in private online gallery.
( most popular package): include a beautiful movie about that important day delivered to you on the flash card + 1 minute promo ( video with the best moments that you can share with friends if you want) and about 10 photos of you and your family meting the baby for the first time.
A $400 deposit is required at the time of booking to secure your place, and the remaining is payable before delivery of any photos and videos.
I believe it is very important that both parents are very comfortable with me, so if you feel like you want to meet me upfront we can schedule a coffee date prior booking. Contact us fro pricing and booking details.
