How It Works

Booking your birth photographer is a very important part of building your birth team. You want someone who is the right fit for your family. Here are the three steps to working with Norma!

Consultation

Birth is intimate therefore, I require an in-person consultation with you and your partner to discuss your birth plan and expectations. (Your meet up can also be arranged via phone call, FaceTime, Google Hangouts or Skype!) 

I'd love to treat you to some coffee or tea to answer all your questions and to see if I'm the right photographer for your birth experience.

We can customize a package that is just perfect for your family's needs!  

*Be sure to ask about  flexible  payment plans & gift registries!

On-Call

I will be on-call and ready to go from 38 weeks until you deliver your little one. 

I will have my equipment ready to head in your direction at a moments notice and we will keep in touch in those last few weeks to ensure we are on the same page if there are any changes to your birth plan. 

Once you are in labor, my goal is to arrive when you are in active labor to capture your story. (Generally when contractions are about 4 or 5 minutes apart and you can no longer talk through them. If your provider is checking your dilatation, this would be when you reach about 5 or 6 centimeters.) 

Your Birth Story

I will document your birth story as it unfolds. 

You will receive a sneak peek image within 24-48 hours from your baby's debut to share your new arrival with friends and family.

Your full gallery will be ready within 4 weeks of your baby's arrival and will be delivered to you as soon as it is completed on your custom USB.

Professionally printed a la carte products are offered as well! I will provide you with an A La Carte menu which will help you sort through some of the custom pieces available.  


Families | Documentary Photography

 

The process is a little more simplified for family sessions. ((Yayyyy for simple!))

You'll receive a client questionnaire that gives me a little insight on your family's dynamic.

We schedule your session, I show up on the day of our session and you just get to be you. I hope to make this the easiest family photo experience for your family. No need to get everyone to sit and smile, I'll just capture the magic of your everyday. Easy peasy. (Don't worry, if a sit down and smile photo is important to you as well, we can sneak that in quickly too.) 

You'll receive your online digital gallery in as little as 2-4 weeks. Professionally printed a la carte products are offered as well! I will provide you with an A La Carte menu which will help you sort through some of the custom pieces available.

We can customize a package that is just right for your family's needs. Be sure to ask about flexible payment plans!
