why hire a birth photographer?
Birth Story Photography offers an all-inclusive service, tailored to your unique desires. Additional à la carte products can be added after the birth of your baby. During our consultation, we will delve into every detail, ensuring your experience is everything you’ve envisioned.
The Moonstone EXPERIENCE
Your deposit secures your place in my calendar for the anticipated arrival of your baby. As I typically undertake 2-3 births per month, scheduling a consultation at your earliest convenience increases the likelihood of availability.
From 36 weeks until 2 weeks after your estimated due date, I will be readily available for your labor and birth. The moment you alert me of your active labor, I will eagerly embark on this joyous journey alongside you.
Ideally before reaching 36 weeks gestation, we will come together to discuss your goals and aspirations for capturing the beauty of your labor and the birth of your baby. From consultations with your healthcare provider to sharing ideas on how to make your images accessible to your entire family, I will navigate every detail, ensuring your experience is seamless. If necessary and time permits, a second meeting can be arranged.
Once I arrive, my sole focus is to be an unobtrusive presence, carefully observing the intricate details of your active labor. I deeply respect the sacredness of this environment and prioritize preserving the entirety of your story, empowering and reminding you of the sanctity of this phase. I will remain by your side, alongside your support team, until approximately 2 hours after the birth.
Each image is thoughtfully selected and edited, capturing your unique style and evoking genuine emotions. No photo is included without careful consideration. Together, they weave a tapestry that tells the complete story of your child’s birth. These images are provided in both color and black and white, with a minimum of 100 in each format, and are delivered in full resolution with a private printing release.
This digital slideshow is carefully crafted into a cohesive narrative that beautifully encapsulates the story of your child’s birth. Slideshow is set to music and can be shared with anyone as a testament to this monumental experience.
Once your images are ready, they will be delivered through a private, password-protected gallery exclusively accessible to you. You can download and treasure these images for up to 90 days after delivery of your gallery. Additionally, for a period of 6 months following, you can request the images in case of any unforeseen circumstances.
Your images will be conveniently delivered through a private, password-protected gallery, accessible only to you. This gallery allows you to download your images within 60 days from your baby’s birth. Should you require assistance or encounter any challenges, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I am here to support you.
I offer design support to help you create your ordered print products. I can work to create a customized layout and design that fits your unique story. Alternatively, you can also design with pre-made templates for a faster and easier option. I want to ensure that you get the best possible outcome from your print product order.
Within 14-21 days after your child’s arrival, I will present you with a digital slideshow, revealing the story of your baby’s birth. You will have the opportunity to review the images and approve any Heirloom products, such as albums and prints, that you wish to order. These carefully selected items will be delivered to me for a final quality review, after which I will directly arrange a convenient time to deliver them to your doorstep. Home deliveries are limited to 50 miles distance from San Jose City. Distances outside of 50 miles are cared for on a case-by-case basis.
