Why should I capture my baby’s birth?

This is such a special and amazing moment in your life that deserves to be remembered. By hiring me to capture this special time, you can relax knowing that you will have beautiful and tasteful images that I know you will cherish forever. You and your partner can rest assured that regardless of the lighting, space, size of the room or type of birth you have, the images will be perfect and you will have your hands free to focus on more important matters.

My style

I have a documentary style of photography and tell the story of the day. I will seamlessly and unobtrusively capture your day without interfering. I love natural, relaxed and candid images, so you won’t at all feel like you’re in a ‘photo shoot’, and you certainly won’t be posed or have a camera in your face. As you can see by the video reel below, I love moments that show connection and emotion.

How does Birth Photography work?

I will liaise with the hospital as appropriate to ensure all necessary paperwork is completed well in advance of the birth, so you don’t have to worry about a thing. I will be ‘on-call’ 24/7 for you from the 37 week mark onwards and will drop everything to be there for the big moments.

Included in your package is a face to face consultation meeting with me to go through your birth plan, explain how the day will run from a photography perspective and you get the chance to ask all your questions. I’ll be there throughout the whole labor / c-section, and for the 2 hours after your baby’s first to ensure you get family photos of all your special people.

Complimentary Newborn Session

As my gift to you, all birth photography bookings come with a complimentary 90 minute newborn photography session in my studio. I have a lovely array of props, backdrops and outfits for you to choose from so that you don't have to worry about a thing.

I’m interested, tell me more

Let’s setup a time to chat more on the phone, or over coffee so we can discuss what you’d like out of your birth photographs, and I can explain the process more about how I work and why this is important to me. Please contact me anytime on: 0418 526 248 or email: photography@sarah-joy.com.
