A 50% deposit is required with your signed contract, which will be sent digitally with the option to pay online. Birth clients – at our first consultation/prenatal we will go over the contract, discuss your birth plans, ask/answer questions and just get to know each other and make sure I am a good fit for your needs.
I remain at your birth for approximately 2 hours post partum, or until the newborn exam is complete, a family or birth team photo is taken, and/or an herbal bath – if planned and provided by client – is complete. Please note that this kind of bath is different from a fresh floral bath. Fresh floral baths are scheduled separately, and I bring all that is required (fresh flowers and herbal bath mix).
First Glimpse sessions are completely customizable. They can be done any time within 2 days of birth, between the hours of 9 and 5pm. First Glimpse sessions are a good option for those who want those special moments surrounding the baby’s birth captured, without the added cost or concern with having an extra person in the room during actual labor.
The First Glimpse pricing includes up to 2 hours of my time. This session must take place during business hours, so although I am on call of sorts, the session must be scheduled between the hours of 9-5pm. First Glimpse sessions include several baby shots, first snuggles and impressions with Mom and Dad, breastfeeding (if desired), and if convenient – meeting family members. Baby’s measurements, weight, and footprints might also be reenacted or reserved for these photos as well, as long your care provider(s) are willing.
How does a Lifestyle Newborn session differ from a First Glimpse session? The newborn session can be scheduled further in advance. Although I do stay as true as possible to my documentary style, this session is more hands on with regards to posing baby and choosing various settings in your home as a backdrop, giving a more polished and stylized feel. Due to these differences, the newborn session yields fewer images than a First Glimpse session.
