The day you welcome a new baby in to the world is a truly life changing experience for everyone involved. From the hard laboring to the overwhelming joy of seeing your baby for the first time, this day is full of so much raw emotion. Your birth story deserves to be documented to be able to look back on and cherish for a lifetime. As a laboring woman, you do not get to focus in on or see what is happening around you when you welcome your baby into the world. That is why we are here to document this incredible journey for you, capturing all those powerful moments.

Here at Captured Forever Photography, we document your birth with a focus on capturing all the special moments, both small and large, in a quiet and unobtrusive manner. We know how intimate and special this day is and we value preserving the sanctity of the experience. Every birth is unique and filled with sacred moments that you can relive through your documented birth story with Captured Forever Photography. Our goal for you is that you be fully present in your birth experience without worrying about how to document those memories. That first breath. The first cry. Your flood of emotion as your sweet baby is placed in your arms. We will be there to capture it all.

We know how much thought and consideration goes into every decision surrounding your birth, so we know how nerve wracking it can be to consider letting a stranger in on this incredibly intimate time. When you choose Captured Forever Photography as your birth photographer, you are getting someone who is so much more than just a photographer. You are getting someone who is passionate about her clients and telling their unique story in a beautiful, one of a kind way.

Your Life: Captured Forever




Our birth story offers documentary photography coverage of your birth. Because the birth experience is so intimate, we want to get to know you beforehand which is why we include a meet & greet with our birth package. We will be on call 24/7 starting one week before, and one week after your due date and we will capture the birth from start (active labor which is typically at 5-6cm) to finish (1 hour after the birth). 

You will receive all your images via digital download with printing and usage rights. We also will provide you with “sneak peek” or announcement photos within 24 hours of delivery.

Your birth story is unique and important. Let us capture this life changing time to look back on for a lifetime.

when does my birth photographer arrive?

Our birth photography packages include coverage starting at active labor. This is typically around 6cm. We always like to stay in communication though because sometimes births can be quick. Once you let us know that you are on your way to your delivery location, we will be ready to head out the door at a moments notice, regardless of time of day!

how long does my birth photographer stay?

Our birth photography package includes coverage for up to one hour after delivery. We will use this time to document all the sweet cuddles with mom and dad.

i am worried about exposing my body to photos. how “graphic” are birth photos?

It is really up to you how much you want shown, but we primarily focus on the story and emotions of your birth. We go over in great detail what types of photos will and will not be taken in our meet and greet meeting prior to your birth.

what is my baby comes outside of the on call time frame?

If your little one arrives earlier or later than the two week window, we will still make every effort to be there for your birth story. We will stay in close communication as the due date approaches to come up with a plan if needed!

If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask!
