New Here! - On Call Session for the first hours after birth - Treasure Coast Birth Photographer

I love documenting Birth Stories. Heck, I wouldn't do it if I didn't. And since becoming a business owner I've taken to the philosophy that if I don't have a HELL YAH feeling about something I don't pursue it. If I don't feel over the moon about my offerings or the work I'm providing for my clients then I'm not giving it my all and speaking with my heart. I'm not that kinda gal. No, ma'am. What I'm sharing with you here definitely fits into the hell yah category. And it gives me goosebumps to share with you. It's something new but so, so awesome.

So.  Even though birth photography is picking up more these days and has become much more prevalent on social media, not everyone is on board for having their own births photographed. I get it. Just because it's a thing doesn't mean it's your thing.

Maybe you're more of a private person. Maybe you're more interested in the final product (um, a squishy and beautiful bundle of joy?!) than the process of birth itself. Maybe all the details of labor and delivery fade in comparison to the details of your baby, freshly born. All of those firsts in the first few hours can pass in a whirlwind. Foot prints, weighing, first time nursing, first skin to skin with another parent, first time meeting siblings. First diaper. First outfit. The list goes on.

And babies change so much in the first few days. They will never look BRAND new again. Not like they do in the first few hours.

This is why I am now offering a session I am calling New Here.

So, what does a New Here session entail?

I will be on-call for you on the month surrounding your due date. Once baby is born I'll come within the first 1-5 hours to document your freshly born baby and all of those firsts. Your new or growing family taking in the wonder of this really real tiny thing that just entered the world. I'll be there for a few hours so everyone can take their time and there's no need to rush.

So if you are considering having your next birth documented and are still on the fence this could be the option for you. You can check out my 10 reasons to hire a birth photographer if that helps, too.  A New Here session costs less than full Birth Story documentation since I'm not there for the hours leading up to the moment of birth. But it does cost more than the newborn sessions I offer simply because of the narrow window of timing. To be there for those first moments with you I'll be on-call and ready to go at a moment's notice any time of the day or night. Just to capture all of those sweet firsts for you and your growing family.

a birth story album - vero beach birth photographer

in person sales - album delivery - ebb and flow photography

I am starting to offer more print products in my packages.

And here's why: This photo album (in a box; photo taken with my phone, of course 😝) was for a birth client.

The pages tell the story of how a couple became a family. Maternity. Birth. Newborn.

All of those new and exciting moments. Documented, printed, and bound. To hold against a momma's heart. To trace the shape of a tiny face with a finger when those baby rolls are long gone.

This album brought tears to my eyes because 1: a family will have these memories to cherish for as long as they care for this album (generations, possibly!) and 2: I have never been happier in a job or with a passion than literally delivering JOY.

I'm in love with this album. The leather color is Terra, so fitting for an album all about a baby named Keeper of the Forest.

The story begins with the maternity session. A celebration of the life of a family on the verge of becoming something greater than they could ever imagine.

And the birth. Photos are carefully curated and thoughtfully laid out to tell the story so that it flows naturally.

I love how these albums allow the photo to spread across the seam in the center. The photo does not fall into a gutter and the pages open all the way, displaying the photo in full effect.

The last pages are filled with all the sleepy, snuggly newness captured during a lifestyle newborn session.

And although this story is complete, his story is just beginning. Welcome to the world. We are so happy to have you.

The Home Birth of Elizabeth

Every event or session I am invited to document is such an honor. This is especially the case when it comes to birth stories. The birth space is sacred, so to be allowed into it is unlike any privilege I know.

Jen had been studying hypnobirth for her second home birth and created a calming space in her home to bring her baby girl into the world. Her amazing support team moved harmoniously around her, meeting her every need with hardly a word. And when the time came for Elizabeth to be born, it was a peaceful moment full of joy. From the get go she had her father's face and her mother's gentle temperament.

Welcome to the world, Elizabeth.
