We have never offered these to the public; and we only did them in the past by special request only due to their sensitive nature. These are always a limited booking session, so please book ahead! We will not overbook and run the chance of over booking and overlap during our clients special moments. Which means we ONLY ACCEPT A CERTAIN number of Birthing Sessions a month.
A Baby's Journey by Spoil U Photography
Your Birth Story and Hospital New Born Photography
Birth photography is a very special way to document and capture this very important time for your growing family. It frees up Dad, Grandma or the friend who is there for moral support and allows the birthing team to be there to fully assist Mom while the photographer acts like a cat in the room capturing your New-Bundle-of-Loves journey into the world.
It is more of a photojournalistic and story telling approach to photography and never has to mean explicit crowning shots, however if the Doctor and hospital have approved it and that is your request then we can. The photos & slideshow are essential to have, treasure and reflect upon when the days pass by and the moments are but a memory. A baby is only born once. And you only get ONE chance at capturing those moments; the first breath, the first cry, the first gaze at mom, the first reaction from siblings, the first bath, etc.
You deserve to celebrate this time and make this a truly wonderful & memorable experience your will NEVER forget… and if you do forget, don’t worry, you got it immortalized from Spoil U Photography!
What to Expect
BEFORE YOUR SESSION
I like to meet all of my clients for an quick consult. At this consultation, we start to get to know one another a little. We’ll grab a cup of coffee or glass of tea and this is the opportunity for you to ask me any questions or voice any concerns you may have. We’ll go over your
birth plan and my birth client questionnaire, and eventually, we’ll go through a contract.
DURING YOUR SESSION
I generally strive to be like a cat in the room: present, but not intrusive. I’m not usually an active participant in the birth – while I do hope to contribute to the caring, supportive energy surrounding the laboring family, and I will step in and offer to help if needed (I will of course fill your water bottles, microwave your heat pads, and fetch the midwives/nurse) It’s not my role to be a stated presence but I’m there to document what unfolds, as it unfolds, in as unobtrusive as a way as possible.
A consultation is require when you book your due date to get to know each other and answer questions. We'll meet again when you are about 36-weeks. This is when I will make certain that you have discussed your session with your Doctor and the Hospital/Birth Center of your choice. I encourage your partner to come to one of our meetings or all.
I only accept a certain amount of Birth Sessions a month. I do not want to overlap anyone. PLUS I will be on call 24/7 the week before and after your due date.
Photography coverage from active labor (about 6 - 7cm dilated) through up to two hours after delivery to capture many of your baby's firsts. This could mean I'm with you 6 hours or 16 hours, but you are not charged more for a long labor.
With your permission, a "sneak peek" gallery will be shared on the our Facebook page starting within 48-hours.
In 3 - 4 weeks, your final gallery of a minimum of 50 edited images will be added to a password protected online gallery for 1-month of viewing.
