The Birth Sessions
Birth Centre // Home // Hospital
Birth is by far one of the most defining, treasured and memorable life events that you will ever experience. An experience that deserves to be professionally documented through birth photography. An experience which I am passionate about recording in detail for you in all it's beautiful rawness, to tell your baby's birth story, be it your first, second, third, fourth. . .
The Birth Story Session covers your entire birthing experience, providing you with a visual documentation of your labour, delivery and immediate postpartum moments. I will record this monumental occasion in a documentary style to tell your unique story, capturing all the magical moments as they unfold, for you to treasure for a lifetime.
Being a mum myself, I know all to well that birth can be an absolute blur. You will be so focused on bringing your baby into the world that there will be parts that you won't remember. By hiring a birth photographer you will have powerful images to look back on, helping you relive your journey and fill in the hazy blanks; the tenderness of your partner, the support of your birth team, the intensity in your face, the beauty of your strength, your first expression when you see your baby, and everything about that brand new bundle of joy in their first moments of life.
Fresh 48 Sessions are for those families who want the first few hours of their newborn's life captured without having the entire labour and birth documented. These lifestyle sessions are held within the first 24-48 hours after your baby's arrival and are perfect for capturing those first moments; your little one’s first yawn, their cute little hands and feet, first feeds, soft snuggles whilst soaking up your new bundle, meeting siblings or other family members, and all the quiet moments in between. These sessions can take place at the hospital, birth centre or within your own home.

Payment Plans & Gift Registry
The arrival of a sweet new babe can be a costly time, therefore, as well as interest free payment plans, a gift registry option is available to help ease the financial side of things. With a gift registry you can ask your loved ones to contribute towards your session cost so that you can have these memories to treasure forever.
Your gift registry can be personalised with a message and an image of your choice. All registries are password protected and can only be accessed by those who you share the password with.
