WHAT TO EXPECT?


WHAT IS BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY?


BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY IS THE ART OF CAPTURING YOUR ENTIRE BIRTH EXPERIENCE. FROM LABOR AND DELIVERY TO YOUR BABY'S FIRST KISSES, SNUGGLES, AND MEETING FAMILY MEMBERS...


IMAGE THOSE ENCOMPASSED IN A PHOTOJOURNALISTIC AND unobtrusive MANNER.


CONSULTATION AND DEPOSIT


PRIOR TO BOOKING AND DEPOSITS, WE WILL MEET IN PERSON AND/OR MEET REMOTELY FOR A NO-OBLIGATION CONSULTATION TO SEE IF VIVA POR TI PHOTOGRAPHY IS THE RIGHT PHOTOGRAPHER FOR YOU.


BIRTH IS VERY INTIMATE AND SACRED SO IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT WE CONNECT.


Welcome


DOCUMENTING YOUR CHILD ENTERING THIS WORLD IS AS EXCITING AS WATCHING THE GENTLE CHANGES OF THESE LAST NINE MONTHS, AS YOUR BODY GROWS, AND GLOWS WITH SWEET LIFE.

ENTRUSTING A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER TO DOCUMENT YOUR BABY'S BIRTH MEANS YOU CAN ENJOY THESE SWEET TENDER MOMENTS FOREVER.

WHETHER THIS IS YOUR FIRST OR FOURTH PREGNANCY.


EACH LIFE CHANGING, EVENT CREATES A UNIQUE EXPERIENCE, WORTH OF REMEMBERING FOREVER.


WHAT'S MORE, YOUR DEFINING EVENT DESERVES TO BE DOCUMENTED IN A NATURAL, SUPPORTIVE, LOW KEY MANNER.

TRULY, IF THERE EVER WAS A TIME TO ENTRUST YOURSELF TO THE CAPABLE AND EXPERIENCED HANDS OF A PROFESSIONAL BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER, THAT IT IS.

I LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU AND CAPTURING YOUR STORY, WHICH WILL NO DOUBT BECOME ONE OF YOUR FAMILY'S GREATEST TREASURES. 

WHY HIRE A BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER?


THERE ARE ONLY A HANDFUL OF EVENTS IN YOUR LIFE THAT ARE SO SIGNIFICANT THAT YOU TALK ABOUT THAT OVER, AND OVER AGAIN. MANY DON'T THINK TWICE ABOUT HIRING ABOUT HIRING A PHOTOGRAPHER FOR A WEDDING, SO WHY SHOULD THE BIRTH OF A CHILD BE ANY DIFFERENT?

HAVE YOU EVER HEARD THE STORY OF HOW YOU WERE BROUGHT INTO THIS WORLD? WOULDN'T IT BE WONDERFUL IF THAT STORY HAD IMAGES TO GO WITH IT? IMAGINE, AS ADULTS, HOW GREAT IT WOULD BE TO SEE OURSELVES AS WE ARE BEING BORN, TO SEE OUR MOM AS SHE BECOMES A PARENT, TO SEE WHAT WE LOOKED LIKE AS A FRESH NEWBORN.

HIRING A PHOTOGRAPHER ISN'T JUST FOR THE PARENTS, IT'S A GIFT TO YOUR CHILD AND A WONDERFUL WAY TO SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

BY HIRING A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER YOUR PARTNER WILL BE FREE TO EXPERIENCE THE MOMENT AS IT IS HAPPENING, AND NOT THROUGH THE LENS OF A CAMERA AND THEY WILL ACTUALLY BE IN THE PHOTOS!


HIRING A PHOTOGRAPHER THAT IS VERY FAMILIAR WITH BIRTH MEANS THAT YOU WILL HAVE YOUR STORY DOCUMENTED, EDITED, AND PRESENTED WITH THE PROFESSIONAL QUALITY YOU DESERVE.


TO TRULY REMEMBER AND BE ABLE TO SHARE THE JOY AND TRIUMPH FOR SUCH A SIGNIFICANT DAY, THERE IS NO BETTER WAY TO CAPTURE THAT MEMORY, AND SHARE THAT LEGACY, THAN HAVING A BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER DO IT FOR YOU.

YOU MAY BE ABLE TO RELIVE EVERY MOMENT IN YOUR HEAD, OR THINGS MAY HAPPEN SO FAST YOU CAN'T REMEMBER, GIVING BIRTH S A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EVENT, MAKE IT WHAT YOU WANT AND HAVE NO REGRETS!

IT CAPTURES ALL THOSE EMOTIONS EVERYONE FELT AND PRESERVES THEM FOR A LIFETIME. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY YOU SHOULD HIRE A PROFESSIONAL.

A PROFESSIONAL KNOWS HOW TO USE THE CAMERA AND ANGLE IT WITHOUT COMPROMISING ANY OF THE BIRTHING MOTHER'S COMFORT. 


THIS IS YOUR TIME


ONCE YOU BOOK YOU BIRTH SESSION, I CLEAR MY CALENDAR TO ENSURE AVAILABILITY WHEN YOU GO INTO ACTIVE LABOR. TO BE READY FOR YOUR SPECIAL DAY.

I WILL BE ON-CALL FROM AS EARLY AS 37 WEEKS, UP UNTIL THE TIME YOUR SWEET NEW PERSON IS HERE.

DOCUMENTING BIRTH IS A PASSION THAT REQUIRES A GREAT DEAL OF TIME AND DEDICATION. FOR THESE REASONS, I AM ONLY ABLE TO ACCEPT A LIMITED NUMBER OF CLIENTS PER MONTH.

THIS MEANS YOU HAVE MY UNDIVIDED ATTENTION WHEN ITS TIME TO DELIVER. IN THE WEEKS LEADING TO THIS EVENT, WE WILL STAY IN TOUCH SO I CAN PREPARE ARRANGEMENTS FOR MY LITTLE ONE.


I BELIEVE IN YOU. I BELIEVE IN YOUR BODY, YOUR POWER, AND YOUR INTUITION.


I BELIEVE THAT BIRTH IS A SACRED AND TRANSFORMATIVE EXPERIENCE THAT SHOULD LEAVE WOMEN FEELING STRONG AND EMPOWERED.

AS ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DAYS OF YOUR LIFE, IT DESERVES TO BE REMEMBERED WITH VIVID DETAIL.

IT IS MY DEEPEST HONOR TO DOCUMENT THESE STORIES-STORIES OF TENDERNESS BETWEEN PARTNERS, OF STRENGTH YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOU POSSESSED, OF LOVE GREATER THAN ANY.

I ALSO BELIEVE THAT NO MATTER HOW YOU GIVE BIRTH, EVERY WOMAN SHOULD SEE THEMSELVES THROUGH AN ARTIST'S POINT OF VIEW... AT THE HIGH OF THEIR STRENGTH, DETERMINATION, AND COURAGE. 


BEING INVITED INTO YOUR BIRTH SPACE IS SOMETHING I DO NOT TAKE LIGHTLY.


WITH THAT BEING SAID, LET'S MEET FOR TEA OR SMOOTHIES TO SEE IF WE ARE A GOOD FIT FOR ONE ANOTHER.



I BELIEVE IN YOU. I BELIEVE IN YOUR BODY, YOUR POWER, AND YOUR INTUITION.

YOU WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO SHOW YOUR CHILD THE STORY OF THE DAY YOU WELCOMED THEM TO EARTH SIDE.

LITTLE LOVE NOTES

I think that Dominique has a golden personality and that shines through in her photography. She was able to capture beautiful images from a not so beautiful place [cramped hospital room] and the turnaround on my photos was beyond expectations. I will be using her in the future without a doubt.
