Birth Sessions - Ashley Meyer Photography

Birth or Labor and Delivery Photography is...

intended to capture your journey into parenthood, the story behind that journey and all the raw emotions that come with that. How you were supported by your  family/friends during labor, the little details of the room, the looks on you and your partner's face when you see your new baby for the first time and those precious first moments spent looking at and bonding with your perfect little creation. It is the captured moments of a couple becoming a family or a family growing by one more. The photos from this journey are just as important if not more so than the ones from the wedding day. As with wedding photography, this type of photography should be viewed as an investment in the lifelong memories that the images will bring for this life defining moment.


If having a birth photographer present during your labor and delivery isn't for you, but you still desire to have newborn photos captured shortly after the birth, check out the Welcome Baby Session

My goals as your photographer are:

Get to know you ahead of time. I want you to feel completely comfortable before hiring me to photograph this intimate moment in your life.  

Photograph in an unobtrusive and professional manner.

Capture the story of your labor and delivery journey as well as those precious moments after you have been given the chance to hold your new baby for the very first time. 

Deliver your images in the order of how each moment occurred so you can look back and relive each moment as it happened. 


If you are considering hiring a birth photographer, I would love the opportunity to meet with you to discuss your expectations, go over any concerns and to get a head start on getting to know each other.
