When I first became a doula nearly five years ago, I decided to offer photography to my clients. I don’t have great photos from either of my children’s births, and it’s one of my regrets! I never wanted anyone to think back on their birth and wish someone would have photographed the most special day of their life. I’ve loved offering photos of these irretrievable moments to my clients, it’s truly one of my favorite aspects of my job.
After taking photos at more than 50 births, I was starting to feel like birth photography should become a bigger focus (no pun intended) and more valued service in my business. Earlier last year, I began working with a mentor (the fabulous Christina of Aligned + Kind and Shaw Photography), upgraded my gear, and started offering birth photography as a separate service.
I am still offering birth and newborn photography as an add-on service to my labor doula clients. Being invited into a woman’s birthing space as a support person is a gift, and being trusted to capture the moments leading up to and after they meet their new baby is an honor I will never take for granted.
Limited time promotion: I have limited availability remaining this year, but I do have a few openings in August, September, and October for anyone seeking an experienced birth photographer. I am currently offering a 20% discount off birth photography services for due dates during those months, only. This promotion will end when all slots are filled. Discount is valid for birth photography package only, not applicable toward photography add-on for labor doula services. Contact me for more information!
