How does birth photography work?

First we will have an informal consultation meeting in your third trimester. This is to discuss all the aspects of the shoot, including what you want (and don't want) photographed, due date, when you will call me, where you are giving birth, the type of birth you are having, etc. The aim is for me to arrive at the hospital or place of birth when you are about 5cm.

The consultation is also an opportunity to get to know each other a little so I don’t arrive at your birth as a stranger. You can also ask any questions you may have. The more comfortable you are with my presence the less conspicuous I am and the better I am able to blend into the background and take some amazing shots. Ultimately this makes for more natural, spontaneous unposed images.
