As your birth photographer, I will join you in labor to capture your birth experience. While I am also a doula, my primary responsibility when hired as your birth photographer, is to document your birth experience. I will photograph your labor, your baby’s birth, your baby, first family portraits, and detail shots.
Ever since I was in high school, a camera has never been far from my reach. Photography is definitely my other passion. For many years I was the partial owner of GREYSTONE Photographics, where I honed my photography skills; capturing Engagements, Weddings, Maternity, Newborn, and Family Portraits since 2005. It's only natural then, as a doula, that my next step would be into Birth Photography.
If you are delivering at a hospital, the photographer is limited by the guidelines of the hospital policies. Please check with them to ensure that birth photography is allowed. And as a rule, the top priority at all times is not the photography, but rather the safety of the mother in labor and the safe delivery of the baby.
Your images will be available within 2-3 weeks of the birth. I will provide the full resolution DVD or flash drive of all final images to you via USPS. Also available for additional pricing: online, secure, password protected website, and slideshows set to music.
Please contact me for availability, pricing information, and additional samples of my work.
Birth Photography Details
"Lauren's presence at the birth of our second daughter was phenomenal. She was calm/excited/helpful/invisible as the situation changed. Looking back at the pictures from that day (as I did a few days ago) I am struck at how she captured the intimacy of the event and how she really felt like part of our family. It really was like having a beloved and trusted relative there to document Norah's birth. I cannot recommend hiring Lauren enough."
