Capturing your Birth and Postpartum Journey
Birth Photography, Birth Videography, Pregnancy and Newborn Photography as well as Homebirth Services
Birth photography photos
Typically, you will receive between 50-175 images depending on the moments captured and the length of your labor. If you add birth photography onto your midwifery birth fees or your doula fees then I typically deliver roughly 50-75 images. I also like to make sure I will capture as much as I can but will always be your midwife or doula first and then capture the story around that. I do not guarantee the moment of birth if I am also your midwife or doula, but there are always so many beautiful moments surrounding the birth to be able to still tell the whole story. As your birth photographer, I arrive once you have entered into labor, I stay throughout the whole labor and birth, and I stay for up to 1 hour to capture your new family. The typical family spends between $1400 and $2800 on birth photography with Saddlepeak Birth.
Your video will allow you to share your memories in a deep way. It captures your walk through your birth and those first moments of meeting your new baby. These are done in such a way that you can easily share your story with all of your friends and family and relive these beautiful moments over and over again. These 3-4 minute videos are set to music and tell the whole story through quotes, storyline reminders, and intense emotions so that you will never have to forget each and every beautiful moment the day you became a mother again. Birth videography is priceless. The average family spends between $1400 and $2800 on their birth videography packages.
Tiny parts collages
These tiny parts collage can be requested at any birth photography or newborn session. I include these in the price of the session. If a family wants to add this service specifically it will cost roughly $75 to add to another package if a family chose to not utilize the birth photography or newborn photography packages.
Milk Bath Session
These beautiful sessions can add an artistic element to your home. These lifestyle photographs allow you to connect to your baby in a new way. Whether it be a pregnancy shoot or a newborn shoot, these sessions can be extremely special for you and your partner. These sessions come with 45-60 minutes of shooting including setup and tear down time and your digitally edited images. The average family spends around $350 for a prenatal or postpartum milk bath session.
About me and my Photography and Birth Videography Services
Here at Saddlepeak Birth I offer birth videography and birth photography for homebirth and birth center clients. I will take the occasional hospital birth client for birth videography, but my availability is extremely limited. I offer all families of the Gallatin Valley my newborn sessions which I prefer to do in the client's home around 4-6 days postpartum. My style is very much a documentary style. I shoot with a Canon R6 and I do not shoot with a flash. As a lifestyle photographer my photos embody the lighting, mood, and feel of each room I enter. I am passionate about families being able to capture their journeys. I do offer a discount if photography and videography are added to a doula or midwifery package. I will not posts any photos without permission, but I also love to let clients know it's a passion of mine to normalize birth. at least 80% of your images will be able to be shared far and wide on social media or with friends if you desire. I try and make as many as possible modest while still capturing the moments to their fullest. I always stay out of the way and quiet as you birth so you are not distracted by my presence.
