Connecticut Birth Photography

CT birth photographer prices

Birth photography is perhaps one of the most important types of photography out there. Birth itself is one of those most defining and emotional moments that occur in our life and it deserves to be documented just like the other great life moments. I always love telling people about my love for birth photography, because often people do not think to reserve a birth photographer. Mainly because birth can be such a private event, but so many, including myself, afterwards regret not having better photos, or any photos at all to remember the occasion.

Often, many families leave the job of taking photos up to the people in the room, but then find that there are none taken because people get quite busy with their own designated jobs and photos become more of an afterthought during labor.

By hiring a professional photographer to document your birth, your partner is free to fully support you through your labor and delivery. You will also have the gift of looking back on images that highlight the love, support and strength they gave you throughout your labor. Having a professional birth photographer with you also allows your partner to be able to enjoy those first moments with baby once they have arrived without having to worry about documenting it or missing being in the photographs themselves.


Since Birth Photography is an investment I do offer payment plans to clients who book in advance.

What does "standby" mean?
A standby birth story means that I am off-call. Off call birth stories are dependent on my availability around my previously reserved clients. All “standby” birth stories are commitment free. You do not pay anything or sign a contract until I arrive at your birth, not in advance. With the unpredictability of birth, there is a chance women may go into labor at a time I may not be immediately available. "Off-call" means I do not block out my schedule for your due date or follow all of the other steps to ensure my availability, as I would be if I were "on-call." Off call birth photography allows for a lesser client investment because it is less demanding on my schedule.

What does on-call mean?

Once you hit 38 weeks gestation, I will be on-call, 24-7, until your baby arrives.
This means that I do not travel more than 60 minutes from my home. If I do anything with my family, I drive in a separate car in case I have to leave in the middle of our activities. I do not take any other special events during the on call time. It is completely devoted to making sure I am there for the arrival of your labor and deivery. My camera bag is packed and ready to go.

I want professional birth photography, but price is an issue for me. Do you offer payment plans?

Absolutely. The majority of my clients love to take advantage of personalized payment plans. Simply contact me and we will talk about what your needs are and how to make birth photography possible for you and your family.

Why is birth photography a bigger investment than a typical photography session?

As a birth photographer I commit weeks of time to living on call. No traveling, phone fully charged abd on day and night, and often even miss important family events all for my love of helping you document welcoming your baby. Birth photographers are some of the most skilled photographers in the industry as they need to have knowledge on how to produce excellent quality images in the very difficult and often dark lighting situations that mothers often birth in. Births occur any time of the day or even in the middle of the night, on a surprise date that you cannot plan for, for an unknown number of hours which is drastically different and much more demanding on the photographer than the typical photography session.
