Southern New Hampshire's Preferred Birth Photographer
Specializing in Home Birth
and just as honored to document your hospital or birth center story!
First of all, Congratulations on your growing family! Crystal Image Photography (as well as my Postpartum Doula services) are based out of Derry, New Hampshire and serve families all over southern NH & Northern MA. Documenting the birth of a child is such a privilege and I am so honored to offer this service to growing families. Being a Doula as well, has definitely given me an upper hand with my trainings, knowledge and experience with the birthing and postpartum process while photographing birth stories. My approach to birth photography is very tasteful, unobtrusive & photojournalistic. I aim to be both a fly on the wall and a calming presence. Birth is such an intimate and emotional experience and I am very passionate about capturing such special moments. I have always been very comfortable with sexuality and nudity which is a key factor in sharing somebody's birth space. It literally doesn't phase me weather you choose to birth wearing an extra large t-shirt, a lacey bralette or totally nude. I want YOU to be as comfortable as possible. I am so excited that you will forever have keepsakes of the moments your baby meets you for the very first time.
First glance, first breath, first touch, true love, captured as the journey unfolds.
I am always respectful of the families and birth workers involved in your unique birth story. Included in my Birth package is a prenatal consultation in order to discuss your birth preferences and to get more familiar with each other. This consultation can be done in person, over the phone or by email. As your birth story photographer, I will be considered “on-call” from thirty-seven (37) weeks gestation until you birth your baby. I will remain with you to capture all the special moments and details of your birth story from transitioning into active labor, birth and immediately postpartum. There are no fee's regardless of how long or short you labor. You will receive a couple of digital "teasers" within 24 hours to announce your little one(s) arrival. The full birth story will be presented to you via a Dropbox link to your email within 3-5 weeks of the Birth. Also, Twenty (20) 4x6 prints in a custom wooden gift box are included in my birth package. Additional prints, enlargements, albums & flash drives with edited images are also available as add-ons.
*Due to Hospital Covid restrictions, I now offer a "Laboring at home/Fresh48" Combo Package.
