Birth Photography

In addition to providing birth doula services, Embrace is pleased to  be your Winnipeg Birth Photographer. The day your child is born is just the start of a very beautiful journey and this time is sacred. I am honored to give families the opportunity to permanently preserve those moments for years to come. By hiring a Winnipeg Birth Photographer, you are able to capture the tiny details, and the big moments, that may otherwise fade from memory. The soft touch of a favorite nurse, reassuring words your partner whispered into your ear, and moments of both focus and frustration take stage beside the first look exchanged between mama and baby, a new latch, the meeting of older and brand new siblings. Each is unique, each is important.

As part of your birth photography package, we will meet during pregnancy to explore the types of images you are interested in having, as well as those you don't. The end result is a collection of photos that tells your unique story in a way that is tailored to your preferences.

Birth photography and Fresh sessions are offered for the Winnipeg area, at all home, hospital and birth centre births. I am currently accepting clients for March 2018 and onwards.

Contact me today, I'd love to be your Winnipeg Birth Photographer!

Your Pure package is a perfect sampling of photos to tell the highlights of your birth story. Pure is an add on package available for clients already using Embrace Birth Services for birth doula services. For your Pure package, I work with your family to provide both doula and photography during these sacred hours.

Photos tend to have a focus on the pure first moments with baby, although labor images will be included as well. Pure includes 20 images and is a perfect complement to your doula service, freezing those precious early moments. Two to three sneak peak photos will be provided within 48 hours in order to use for announcements and sharing the good news.

Investment for Pure birth photography package is $200.

 

 

 

Capture is your dedicated Winnipeg birth photography package, focused solely on documenting each memory as you move from labor through birth to first moments with your new little one. Capture includes continuous attendance at your birth from active labor until one hour postpartum, and allows me to document the big moments-- moment of birth, first glances of baby, parent reactions, as well as the work, dedication and connection showcased during labor. Sometimes the story is all in these simple details.  You will receive a gallery of edited images within one month of your birth, with an included print release to have your photos printed at the photo lab of your choice.

Investment for your Winnipeg Birth Photography Capture package is currently offered at a discounted portfolio building rate of $650 (Regular 2018 investment will be $1000).

 

 

 

Fresh captures those precious new baby moments that fade from memory all too soon. Often called a Fresh 48 package, this takes place in hospital or home during daylight hours in the first 48 hours after birth, and lasts approximately an hour. Your Fresh package showcases newborn details, early snuggles and feeding, sibling meetings and new family moments. This session focuses on capturing the natural moments as they unfold, rather than being posed or stylized, and props will not be used. Fresh package investment is $200 and includes 20 edited images.
