When people contact me about documenting their birth, I always suggest we get together! It's good to meet, get to know each other a little bit. We chat about your expectations and desires and chat about my process and the experiences I have had. Then we take a walk around the neighbourhood and snap a few photos. I think it's nice to get a glimpse of yourself through my eyes and to do a little run through before fully committing to having the biggest day of your life documented. I want you to be sure of your decision, and I want you to feel at ease about me being there, and trust that I am capturing your day perfectly. More or less, I want to make sure we're a good fit. I am 100% there to document your day, but it's not uncommon for me to grab water, or hold a leg, or help put on slippers, or just cheer in the background because with birth, you gotta roll with it! Birth is beautiful and kinda unpredictable. If you have been following me on Facebook or Instagram you'll know that I am pretty passionate about birth. I believe that all women should be given more control and more information about their own birth and more support in their options. I wholeheartedly support all women in their birthing choices, so whatever happens, whatever you decide, I will support you.
These 5 sessions below are people I met with pretty recently. Three of these couples have had their baby already and 2 have not. Jesleen is due over the holiday season, and Sandra and Pawel will be parents any day now!! So send all those birthy vibes their way!
