Birth Photography

Seattle Birth Photographer

The day your child is born is extraordinary. IT WILL BE FULL OF BEAUTIFUL MOMENTS AND EVERY EMOTION IMAGINABLE. HIRING A Certified BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER ENSURES THAT ALL THE DETAILS, BIG AND SMALL, WILL BE PRESERVED FOREVER.

As a certified birth photographer, I believe that whether you choose to give birth at a hospital, a birth center or at home, your birth space is sacred, and your birth story deserves to be documented. I understand the immense value of having every detail artistically and professionally photographed so you can remember all the important events of what’s unique about your family and birth story. You can fully experience the day of your child's birth without having to worry about forgetting a moment or it all becoming a blur later on. 

if we've never met ... 

When I gave birth, I hired a birth photographer, and I'm so glad I did! I'll cherish those photos forever. Seriously. Every time I look at my birth photos, I gasp with amazement as the memories flood my mind.

It breaks my heart when families don't choose birth photography due to misinformation, cost or general overwhelm doing "all the things" to prep for baby!

So, now I offer birth photography for people who cherish their family and want to capture every detail. 


Hi!  I'm Becky

The photos are wonderful! I really love them, and you captured such beautiful moments! We will cherish these memories for many many years and are so grateful for you being there with us.

I was reluctant to have a “stranger” join us for such an intimate experience. Since my wife really wanted to have birth photography, I agreed to at least have a consult with Becky. After meeting with Becky I was onboard with hiring her and was looking forward to having these once in a lifetime, priceless memories for our family and future generations to share.

When Becky said how great would it be to have photos of your grandparents and your parents being born, something that no one really has, that’s what sold me on birth photography, being able to share these photos with our son and then when he has a family he’ll be able to show them his birth and the emotional reactions of their grandparents for generations to come. The photos are very tasteful and capture the entire birth journey/story. Couldn’t be happier with our decision to hire Becky and have birth photos.

FAQ

Do I have to allow you to post my birth images on social media? 

Absolutely not! These images are for you! They are memories of a moment in time when you welcomed your little one into the world. 

When do you go on-call?

I officially go on-call at 38 weeks, but if you were to go into labor before that, I will do everything I can to be there!

What if you miss a birth, get sick, or have an emergency?

Any reputable birth photographer works with a backup. If I was sick or had an emergency, I'd call my backup to attend the birth.

When should I book you?

I recommend booking me as early as you feel comfortable because I do limit the number of births per month I take on.

What if baby comes fast?

Good communication is key! Contacting me at the first signs of labor helps me to determine when I should come to your birth space.

How many images do you deliver?

I typically deliver 100-150 images, but that may vary depending on the length of your birth and the package you select.

How long will you be at my birth?

I typically arrive during active labor (5-6cm or whenever you can no longer walk/talk through your contractions) and stay 2 hours after baby has arrived!

Why would I want somebody in the room I don't know? 

We will get to know each other during your consultation(s). I arrive when you reach active labor and stay 2 hour postpartum. Honestly, between the nurses, doctors, midwives, family members...you won't even know I'm there!

So...I don't know if I want "that" shot.

When most people think of birth photography, they think of the crowning shot. Think about a wedding. When the officiant announces the official married pair, everyone thinks of the kiss. But there's so much more than that! 

At our consultation, we will go over the shots that you absolutely want and the ones that you don't. In fact, most of my clients don't want the crowning shot.

During your delivery, I will be at your shoulders getting the first looks of baby as your provider hands them to you! Rest assured...no images will be shared unless I have your permission.
