Documentary Photography


The Birth Story

    This Birth Photography Package documents your entire Birth Story. From active labor to two hours after your little one's grand entrance, your birth will be professionally preserved for you to look back on.

     Of course you plan to soak in every moment and remember every detail of your baby's story. But having a baby is hard work! This tunnel vision causes parents to quickly forget many of the tiny in-between moments.

   Our Birth Story collection is for the expectant parents who want to remember all of the details of their little one's amazing journey and want their newborn's first moments captured in a respectful and unobtrusive way.

      Your Birth Story images will be beautiful and powerfully emotive as we document the raw emotions that surface during your labor and birthing journey. Your images will help you remember everything you felt leading up to that precious child in your arms.

Uncertainty • Excitement • Power • Wonder • Love

       Birth is unpredictable and usually doesn't go exactly how we expect. Having birth photography to look back on can also be extremely healing for new mamas who's journey, for whatever reason, wasn't quite what she had planned.

     Hiring a birth photographer is the best way to insure that you'll remember all the beautiful and unique details of your little one's story. It also frees up your support person to do what they're really there for; to be your support!

     In addition to your labor and delivery, the first couple of hours after your birth will also be captured. This will allow for documentation of the cutting of the cord, baby being weighed, baby's first meal and many other firsts!

       As a boutique birth photographer, I aim to provide each client with my fullest attention. Birth photography is a luxury experience and in order to provide you with the best service, I only accept a small number of Birth Stories per year. My advice is to contact me as early in your pregnancy as possible to insure that I have availability during your birth month. If you want to book your birth story before you have officially released the news, don't worry, my lips are sealed.

To book Artist By Heart please contact me with your due date and deliver location of choice. We will set up a time to meet at Foxtrot Coffee Roasters (or Lemonade House Grille) for a few minutes to go over your questions and all the details. I want you to feel fully comfortable choosing me to document your intimate moments. And meeting up before hand, to grab a cup of coffee and chat, is a great way to see if we’re a good match for your needs.
