Birth Photography + Film near Indianapolis, Indiana
“...it could easily feel like a [birth photographer] would be noticeable, but she became a part of our birth team. The images are beautiful, and are a true treasure to us. I can't imagine not having them to look back on. Seeing that day from her perspective was just perfect.” - Megan T.
Whether you’re birthing at home, in a hospital, or birth center in Indiana, I am dedicated to respecting your intimate birth space. I've been a birth photographer for over four years, and my experience and knowledge of the birthing process allows me to skillfully and artfully document your birth story. I truly enjoy photographing the raw moments that unfold during labor, birth, and postpartum.
Continue reading for a detailed look at my birth packages and prices. All of my packages include invaluable, high-quality digital images at no addtional cost to you. You are welcome to purchase heirloom-quality prints, albums, or other simliar products from me as well, however, it is not required.
What to expect:
Each moment surrounding new life is a beautiful story just waiting to be preserved and told for many years to come. I believe all birth is worthy of documentation! And that as a birthing mother, you decide who visits your space.
Because birth is so unpredictable, I only take 2-3 births each month. I want to be able to give you everything you will need from me as I prepare and document your birth, and taking a smaller number of clients allows me to give you 100%.
From the moment you hire me, I go on call 24/7. If anything…I mean anything, even if it’s 3a.m., feels like labor, call me! I will always have my phone charged and on loud, and my gear ready to go, just in case.
When you’re in active labor, I will join you in your birth space. This is usually when you are nearly unable to walk/talk through a contraction.
I believe those first moments with baby are equally as special, so I will stay with you until 1-2 hours after birth.
Within 24 hours, I will send you a few images for you to share with family and friends. Your final online gallery is sent to you within 3 weeks.
Payment plans are available! I also offer the option to purchase gift certificates, as well as a personalized “birth registry” option!
Contact me now to check my availability for births. I only book 2-3 births each month, so it’s never too early or too late to inquire.
