Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I need a photographer?These are such special moments, and it all goes by so fast, you will want pictures to help you remember all the little details.Can I just ask my partner or mom to snag a couple of photos? Let them focus on you and be present for you. Let me come and create some beautiful memories for you all to enjoy later. I promise, you’ll forget I’m even there. When should I book a birth photographer?We have a limited amount of births we can take every month to ensure we can be there for you, so the earlier you book the better. Most moms-to-be tend to book within the 2nd trimester.
Do you offer payment plans?Absolutely! We require a $250 deposit to hold your spot, and then we can break it up into affordable monthly or lump sum payments, whatever works best for you financially. Documenting this life-changing experience will be completely worth it!
Who am I getting when I hire you?You get me (Becky)! This is my baby (so to speak), and if I am sick or for whatever reason unable to make it, I will have a backup photographer that will come in my place. Or, we can schedule a newborn session shortly after your little one is born, if that feels like a better choice for you.
When do you come during labor?As soon as you let your midwife know, please let me know! Better to call with a false alarm than for me to miss your birth. I will need to get my ducks in a row and be able to make it to you in time. Keep me updated via text once you start weekly visits as well, so I’m in the loop as to how things are progressing as we wait for your delivery day.
How long will you stay?Don’t you worry, I am in it ‘til that baby arrives! I will also stay 1-2 hours afterwards to capture more of those sweet whirlwind moments of baby’s weight, footprints, meeting other family members, etc. I do reserve the right to run home after 10+ hours to check on my children, get a bite to eat, etc. But I plan to be there with you to document this momentous occasion.What if I go into labor in the middle of the night?Call me! I’m on call 24/7 for you as you near your due date, and we are prepared for babies coming in the middle of the night. It is all a part of the job.
What happens if you miss the birth?We will come do a newborn session with you and your family, to get those squishy little face and feet documented within 48 hours if possible, or whenever is convenient for you.
I have so many more questions!Great! Let’s get together and chat in person!
