I am currently booking PORTFOLIO sessions for this service!
This portfolio building fee applies to the first 3 clients who book this model call session, for due dates in the spring season time frame. I have ONE spot LEFT (preferring a planned traditional hospital vaginal labor and delivery story)! The on-call fee of $200 is due upon invoice receive to reserve the model call pricing, and the balance is due before your are 36 weeks. Invoices are paid via credit card sent by email. Should you decide to cancel, a $200 on-call fee would be forfeited, and I would refund the remaining amount. Thank you! The requirement would be a signed model release and $200 down to reserve your due date. The balance ($400+tax) is due before 36 weeks.. You will be able to see & approve any images I am considering to use before they are posted and/or used for portfolio purposes… but all studio quality images taken will be released to you for your personal use, and does come with a print release. The total for the birth model call session is $600+tax. Regular rates will be $1200+tax.
UPDATE: I am looking for a traditional hospital birth setting if possible for Summer/Fall babies. I already have a C-section completed (below) and a booked Birth Center story due any day.
Due to the intimate nature of these sessions, you are required to attend a 30 minute meet & greet with me such as at a local Starbucks/or local coffee shop, etc before booking this model call session, as I want to make sure you are comfortable with me. I want to answer any questions directly. If for any reason a birth is missed (as these life events are always unpredictable) you will be credited your fee with service credit to any products or services that my studio provides such as newborn sessions, Baby Plan’s etc.
If you prefer, I will stay by the head of your bed during delivery… the photos I would prefer to use may be a some from labor (such as support photos with your partner, etc), detail shots that I want to take such as the baby heartbeat monitors, equipment, etc…. and immediately as/after baby is born, such as the baby entrance as the physician transfers him/her to your chest, and your reaction/partners reactions, documentation (weighing, footprints, and nurses working with the new baby). I will stay with my model for up to one hour after birth to take photos of baby and your bonding time such as breastfeeding, etc. There may be some very light directing, but birth photography is a RAW documentary style session, and I would mostly be staying back out of way and just photographing your active labor and delivery, and for a short time after documenting the baby for you.
I have a C-Section birth story completed (as some of the images from that session are shown here) for my portfolio and a Birth Center birth story scheduled and coming to my portfolio soon. I would like to add ONE more spot: A traditional hospital birth. Due dates for JULY and beyond: now accepting inquiries!
***I do however guarantee your satisfaction of the images… if you are not satisfied and decide not to receive your images, you will be issued a full refund for the model call session minus the $200 retainer. Your photos will remain on file for my portfolio, but are subject to deletion at any time. ***
Serious inquiries only regarding this portfolio building model call, please contact me at the form above! REGULAR pricing for these sessions will be around $1200 plus tax, and include all studio standard images (100+) with custom USB wood keepsake box and a 6×6 Signature Album with photographer’s choice of highlights from your session.
