FAQs

Why should I have a videographer at my birth?​

When you ask someone about their biggest moments in life, their wedding day and the birth of their children usually top the list. If you would hire a videographer to capture the highlights of your wedding, why wouldn't you do the same to remember your birthing experience? This is such a special, intimate time in your life. Chances are you'll be too distracted to notice all the intricacies, or you'll be unable to remember the most important moments. Capturing your birth means capturing your beauty, strength, and love, and your new baby's first breaths.

What is birth videography? Will it be rated PG?

Birth videography, just like wedding or event videography, captures a very special time in your life. Don't worry – it’s not like reality TV. I honor your privacy, and approach this intimate time with the utmost sensitivity and respect. Typically, when people envision videos of birth, they expect something graphic. This is not my style (so, yes, it's PG!). My goal is to capture the beauty of labor and delivery, and convey the passage of time that you may not be able to recollect. I don't film anything you don't want me to, and I am comfortable wherever you want me to be. You'll also have the final say about whether or not I publicly share images or videos.

What if I have a long labor, C-section, or other

unforeseen challenges?

Due to the unpredictable nature of births, these situations may very well be possible! Exact terms and conditions are spelled out in my contract. I'm happy to roll out of bed at three in the morning to rush to your birth location. I've stayed with a mother in labor for twenty-four hours. My fee is a flat rate, which means whether you're in labor for a few hours, or twenty-four, it will be the same cost.

In the event of a C-section, it is up to the hospital whether or not cameras will be allowed in the operating room, however most hospitals have a strict no-camera policy. If this is the case, I will stick around to capture the moments right before and right after surgery. In the event of any other dramatic change in plans, I'll do my best to capture as much as I can while respecting your wishes.

What will the product look / sound like?

While every video is a little bit different, in general you can expect to see a 5-20 minute highlight reel depending on the package you choose, as well as some still images from the labor and delivery. I use licensed music to bring the highlight reel together.
