Birth Pricing

I am so grateful for the opportunity to have my baby’s birth story captured by Amanda. There were other photographers offering less expensive options, but we knew we wanted the best. Amanda’s open payment plans (letting us pay a little bit at a time throughout our pregnancy) allowed us to stretch our budget to make it work. And it was worth EVERY penny!

Not completely sure what to expect, we set up a meeting with Amanda three weeks prior to our due date. We immediately clicked perfectly with her and were immediately on board but still not sure how the actual experience would be with having an additional person alongside our journey. However, once my labor started only a week after meeting her, Amanda joined us at the hospital & she immediately became a part of my birth team and she is a major part of my birth story. She allowed me to lean on her during a moment I was doubting my own abilities and I will forever remember the courage she gave me in that exact moment. She is an extremely personable person who is there for support if needed but otherwise takes incredible photos and does not interfere with the calm & serene environment needed of a laboring woman. The photos she captured are magical and make me cry no matter how many times I see them. They are moments I would never remember otherwise and nothing can put a price tag on such an experience!! I am so grateful for having her there alongside the birth of Gabriel and would hire her again and again!

How it Works:

1.  Complimentary Consultation - Come chat with Amanda in our beautiful East Beach studio to discuss your birth plan and preferences for what we will capture during your birth journey. This is a no-pressure meeting just to get to know each other and for us to share our approach to birth photography and see if we are the birth photographer for you!

2. Reserve Your Due Date - Select the type of birth coverage you want: Photography, Videography or both! Once you pay the retainer (or set up a payment plan), and sign the contract, your due date is reserved on our calendar. The fee is due in full by 36 weeks to start your official on-call time.

3. On-Call Time - Amanda has almost 10 years of birth photography experience in all situations. She is available 24/7 for three weeks surrounding your due date and as needed from the moment of hire in case of preterm labor. She joins you at your place of birth once active labor has been established and stays about 2 hours after delivery to capture the first moments of bonding, baby's exam and any siblings or family members who are there to welcome baby into the family!

4. Announcement - We will provide an announcement photo within 24 hours for you to share with your family and friends. If you've reserved birth videography, you'll receive a short announcement video within 48 hours!

5. Your Movie Reveal - Once your birth story has been completed, we invite you back to our studio for a movie reveal. You can invite your birth team and/or friends and family to watch your slideshow/video (or both) on the big screen together and reminisce about your birth. This is where you'll decide on the products you'd like to order to enjoy your birth story for years to come!

6. Pick Your Products - How do you want to remember this amazing journey? We have some of the most incredible albums, keepsake boxes and printed heirlooms to help you treasure these moments for a lifetime. Our packages and products start at $500
