We are only able to attend births in the Baton Rouge area.
Do you need to get approval from the hospital staff?
The staff in every area hospital has always been accommodating, but it is a good idea to let your doctor or midwife know you’re having a birth photographer.
When I go into labor, when should I call you?
It is best to contact us at the first signs of labor. We need to know when you have your first few contractions so we can plan accordingly.
What if labor starts in the middle of the night?
Being on call 24/7 means we will have our phones next to us no matter what time. When you feel the first signs of labor please don’t hesitate to call or text at any time during the day or night. You’re not bothering us. We promise!
When do you arrive at the hospital?
Your photographer will arrive when you’re in active labor or around 6 or 7 cm. Births are completely unpredictable, so if you feel like we might need to get there sooner then let us know.
How long are you at each birth? How long do you stay after?
We do not have a time limit while you’re in labor. After the baby is born we will stay 1.5-2 hours.
How soon do I get my pictures?
With your permission, I will post a few images of within a few days of the birth. Your birth story will be ready to view at our Viewing & Ordering party that is typically scheduled on the same day as your 6 weeks checkup with the doctor/midwife.
When should I book?
Only 4-6 births are booked per month and the calendar does fill up months in advance. It is best to book as soon as you decide to have your birth documented.
