Will you remember?
The labor time warp is something else…
Labor requires your full attention. You will miss much of what’s going on around you as you enter labor land to become fully present with your body and baby.
When your baby finally emerges, you will be so caught up in the emotional high of that moment that you’ll completely lose track of time and the world around you.
Then… the sleep deprivation hits. It’s no wonder they say “you forget all the pain” – because with sleep deprivation comes memory fuzziness. Also – mom brain anyone?
Your baby’s birth day will fly by in a blur. When you finally catch your breath, you can relax knowing all of the most important moments were documented so you never forget the day you met your baby.
exclusive black friday deal
birth videography ($800 value)
Remember your birth story with a 3-5 minute birth film that captures the best parts of your day with movement and sound. There is definitely a different quality to watching your birth unfold with movement and sound. *Choose either photography or videography for the moment of birth.
10 x 10 birth story album (up to $600 value)
In the digital age, it’s easy to just snag up the digital files to “print later”…but it rarely ever happens. Take that task of your never-ending to-do list and add a beautiful birth story album that you can share with your baby as they get older. Imagine how special they will feel as you’re able to tell them about the day they were born in exact detail.
postpartum session ($850 value)
There’s something extra special about those slow moments getting to know each other in your own space without the beeping of monitors and interruptions to check vitals. Now that the whirlwind of your baby’s birthday is over, capture the honeymoon phase in the sweet first days postpartum. Your session will include all of your digital files.
keepsake box + Prints (Up to $400 value)
Enjoy a customized keepsake box with 10 5×7 prints of your choice to keep all your special memories and keepsakes in one place. These are perfect for holding sonogram photos, hospital bracelets, your baby’s first hat, a lock of hair, or any other small keepsakes to keep them safe and in one place.
What you get with birth photography:
On the phone, via Zoom, or at a coffee shop (on me!) to go over everything and answer any questions you have. We will also talk about your unique preferences, goals and desires to customize your experience.
24/7 on call time
Because birth can’t be scheduled, I am ready to drop everything, no matter what time of the day, to be there to capture your birth story.
Unlimited hours at your birth
Because birth is unpredicable, once you call me I will be with you until up to 2 hours after birth to capture your full story…whether that takes 2 hours or 2 days – you will never have to worry about being “on the clock”
slideshow of your story
Enjoy a beautiful slideshow of your birth story set to music. My goal is to make you cry (in a good way) for years to come.
100+ Digital Images
Birth stories are the only photography package I offer where all of the digital images are included for no extra charge. You get to download and keep every single one to enjoy forever. That said – I hope all of my clients choose to purchase an album (through me or somewhere else) because there’s nothing better than seeing your images in real life for years to come.
How much does it cost?
Birth photography is $1,950 with payment plans welcome. Most of my clients split the payments into thirds, with the first being due to book your due date, the second due when I go on call for you at 38 weeks, and the final third due when your gallery is ready.
*$650 is due in order to book your due date and take advantage of the Black Friday deal.
Birth photography is right for you if…
Your baby's birth day is just as (or more) important than your wedding day.
As a single mom I might be biased (or just have a unique perspective), but with 50% of marriages ending in divorce, to me it’s a no-brainer that birth photography is more important than wedding photography. You may divorce your spouse, but you will never divorce your babies.
You want to see your birth from the outside looking in
You recognize that your baby’s birthday is going to fly by, and that you will be too busy with the work of labor to be able to take it all in. Birth photography captures all of the in-between moments you missed, as well as your own personal strength as you bring your baby into the world.
You don't want to have to remind someone to take photos
You want to be able to focus on you and your baby – not reminding someone else to take the photos. This event is too important for missed moments.
You want your partner to focus on you, not fumbling with a camera.
This is a big day for both of you! Your partner deserves to be right by your side, and you deserve to have them there, fully present and enjoying the moment. Plus, with someone else taking the photos, your partner gets to be in the photos. Double win.
Now that I’ve seen them, I can’t imagine NOT having photos to look back on! Thank you SO MUCH for capturing all of the moments we asked for, and the ones that I had no idea would mean so much to me until they happened. Some of these are truly some of my most favorite photos of all time, and I cannot express my gratitude enough.

Before you book
Get to know me!
She was everything I wanted in a birth photographer and more.
Leslie is hands down the most amazing birth and lifestyle photographer I’ve seen. Her work speaks for itself. But more importantly, she’s an amazing PERSON! In the labor/delivery room she was so poised and professional and while trying to shoot photos for us, she was also able to help cue my husband on some un-Medicated pain management techniques that helped me to cope. When things got crazy hectic in the room she was there to capture it all and make it look peaceful and calm. She was everything I wanted in a birth photographer and more.
