your dream birthing session WITH jonnah walters photography

hey there!

First off, let me say congratulations!

Thank you so much for contacting me about planning a birthing session. I would love to be involved in capturing precious memories for you. Welcoming your Newborn into the world will be one of the most miraculous events in your life. They say that the memories of these first few moments fade so quickly. And, sadly it is true. I can't clearly recall what happened for the first few hours after my son or daughter were born. Adrenaline, medication and excitement clouds your memory. Birth Photography helps capture & preserve these precious memories for you. Parents at that time are so focused on a million different things- the health of mom, the health of baby, the pain! Who wants to think about taking pictures at a time like this?! That's where I come in!

I am there to capture your Birth Story.

I am there to capture that special once in a life time moment, when you meet your little miracle for the first time. When you hear their first cry, when you finally get to hold them in your arms after months of anticipation. This magical stage of life passes in the blink of an eye.

Why hire a birth photographer? Your baby’s birth is one of the most emotional & momentous occasions in your life! The more accurate question would be - Why wouldn't you hire a birth photographer? The photos from your labor and delivery are a beautiful reminder of the superhuman you are. Allowing a photographer to handle this important task will not only free up Dad or your other support person to be more available to you during your labor and delivery, but it will also ensure that his or her participation is captured on film. Dad won’t have to worry about taking photos, so he’ll be better able to enjoy the moment right along with you. He can be a more active participant on a day worthy of documenting!

A birth photographer is able to document the whole story, including things that you may never see without the photos. Things like family waiting in the waiting room or a sibling trying to sneak a peek. Or better yet, the look on your face the moment you first lay eyes on your baby.

Laboring mothers are very inwardly focused. You have the most important and hardest job, delivering a baby. Having a photographer present allows you to see your birth from a completely different perspective, like a documentary of one of the biggest days of your life.

Once your session is booked, all I ask parents to do to prepare for a birthing session is to contact me once labor has started, then I’ll do the rest. I will clear my calendar for you around your due date, and be on call 24/7 any time day or night when you need me. If you have any additional questions that are not covered here, please contact me.

the details

I always provide standard retouching and enhancements such as mild blemish removal, teeth whitening, light skin softening, and basic color/exposure adjustments. After your session, each photo is carefully reviewed, and those that fit my professional and artistic standards are then hand-edited to bring my complete vision to them. I do not batch-process. Each image is checked for consistency before being shown to you. Photos are sharp and produced at a quality meant for displaying in print, not just for looking good on a computer screen. It’s all in the details!

Custom re-creation won't upset me :) Have you collected a few images that you like from Pinterest? Send me a link to your boards, I am always happy to help you capture a version similar to your favorites. These are great inspiration but I always have lots of my own creative shots.

investment

  • My birth story session includes full coverage of your birth journey, beginning with active labor and ending 2 hours after the birth of your baby, capturing everything from your journey through labor to baby's first breath, first latch, and first cry. I will be available to you on call 24/7 from that point until your new baby arrives. Payment plans are available if you would prefer to pay portions of your balance throughout your pregnancy. Contact me and we will chat about full details! Secure your birth session with me early in your pregnancy in order to reserve your date in my calendar. I take a limited number of birth sessions per month in order to ensure that I am available for every birth!
  • My signature professional editing.
  • Before, During, and after birth photography.
  • A private online gallery that allows you to view all of the edited photos from your session.
  • A USB disk with ALL of your edited images with photo release.
  • Price: 850

After the session is over, I pull the best photos and touch up each image with my signature style. Then I place them in your online gallery. You can share your gallery link with family and friends and wait for the "oohs and ahs" to start. You will also be able to conveniently favorite photos and order your photo products from the comfort of your home. Albums, canvases, birth announcements and slideshows are also available for an additional charge.

Want to add a maternity portrait session?

I offer a highly discounted maternity portrait session with anyone that books a birth. Adding a maternity session will give you and I the chance to meet one another, and discuss your unique birth plan and expectations. These sweet sessions are typically scheduled between 30-35 weeks, but I leave it up to the client and when she feels like she will be ready! The last part of the third trimester you can feel uncomfortable and swollen (believe me, I know) Every pregnancy is different, but I want to make sure you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible. The investment for a one hour maternity session added along with you birth is $175. These edited images will be added to your custom USB along with your birthing photos.

I don't have "packages". I think you should be able to order what you want. I have a large collection of photo products available from my professional print lab. From mounted gift prints, to large pieces of wall art. Some of those products include Ready to frame Metal Prints, Thick Mounted Gift Prints, Unique Acrylic Blocks, Albums, Canvases, and a Custom Photo Box with USB (most popular item) I can provide you with samples to see and touch at the session if you'd like! Your birthing session does come with a custom USB box, however additional professional print products are available to purchase if you wish.

Payment Plans

That's right! As a courtesy to my clients, I do offer various payment plans. Half of your session fee is due upon booking your session to insure your spot, and then you could make payments according to the terms we agree on. Payment plans are a great way to get EVERYTHING you want in an affordable monthly payment! Here are just a few ways to get it all:

Paypal Credit makes it easy with more time to pay! Easy Payments with PayPal Credit lets you get what you want, when you want it, and budget your payments as you go. You choose the monthly payment amount and length of time that works for you, so you can pay with peace of mind. No Payments + No Interest if paid in full in 6 months. You will get you products right away and get to enjoy your beautiful images without waiting.

If you like what I offer, let me know and I would love to clear my calendar for your little ones birthday! Thank you so much, I hope to hear back from you soon!
