Oklahoma City Birth Photographer | FAQ

  • How long will you be at my labor? I like to arrive once you're in active labor, and I stay until after baby has nursed, met any siblings, and has been weighed and measured. Generally this is about 2 hours after birth  
  • Will we meet before I go into labor? YES! I want to meet you before you book actually. I'm free next Tuesday, let's grab a coffee (or cupcakes!) and chat :)
  • When should I book you for my birth? As soon as you know you're interested in booking, contact me. Most moms choose to book at the beginning of their second trimester, but I have on occasion had moms book as late as 36 weeks.
  • What if I go into labor at 2am? Perfect! There isn't usually much traffic at 2am, so I'll see you soon.
  • Do you use flash? Sometimes. I prefer not to, however, if the situation deems it necessary I can and will. If you're like me and prefer natural ambient light over flash, we can discuss lighting options during your consultation.
  • Do you offer discounts? Of course! For each booking referral you send me, I'll add a $50 credit to your account. This can be used towards your balance or future product orders :)
  • What equipment do you use? In my bag: d750 and d610 camera bodies; 85mm, 50mm, and 35mm lenses; sb600 flash
  • Am I going to have to pose?! My goal at your labor is to stay a fly on the wall and capture what naturally happens in its truest form. If the situation calls for it, I may direct a shot or two (with dad/grandma/etc) and after baby is born I will help you to get a few directed photos with baby to use as your announcement - this is generally less than 2-3 photos and takes 5 minutes at the very most.  
  • What if I have a surgical birth? I've been allowed into several ORs in the past, ultimately it's up to the discretion of your doctor and hospital staff if I'm allowed in or not. If, for any reason, I can not attend a the moment of birth, I will be there both before and after to capture the time leading up to surgery, and your first moments as a family after.
  • How do you choose which photos you post online? I only post photos publicly that I would be comfortable with my friends and family seeing of me. If it's going on my blog or on Facebook, you can bet it's safe to show your grandpa.
  • I REALLY want a photo of baby crowning, will you get it? YES!
  • I do NOT want any photos of baby crowning, will you avoid it? YES! This is YOUR labor and YOUR birth. I want to do whatever you're comfortable with.
  • How much does this cost? Birth Documentary Coverage begins at $1250. There is no minimum order requirement, and payment plans are available.
