I am responding to my comments here because for some reason LJ won't let me respond directly...
Thanks! Yes, basically I have been going to the hospital or home when the mom is in active labor and then I stay for about 1-2 hours after the birth. At this point I have photographed as many hospital births as homebirths and next month I will have another of each. I love attending births wherever they take place, but realize how lucky I am to have been invited to so many homebirths. I would LOVE to photograph a cesarean!
Anyways, what I have been giving to the families after the birth is between 40-60 4x6 prints of the delivery and a slideshow set to music. Everyone seems happy with this.
This is so great for you, I am utterly jealous!
how do you go about the whole thing, do you just come to the hospital whenever they feel like calling and stay until the end?
I wouldnt be able to offer something like this until Gage was older and I could always be available to leave the house for a few hours, but I would LOVE to.
I photographed ONE birth, but it was a cs.
still wonderful babyness, but a real birth....wow
Thanks A I really appreciate it! Just let me know when you want to get together! I'm glad to hear M seems to be doing well, that is weird though how everything happened. Didn't they just move from their house into a different one?
I am going to write your website, name, phone # down and pass it onto some of the new moms at our church. If I can't have my newborns photographed (since. I don't have anymore and don't plan to) this will be the next best thing.
Speaking of photographs, our financial stuff has been crazy tight recently but we have tax refund coming SOON. I should set up a photo time with you. We really need new, good, individual and family photos!
I heard from MM today and she is doing good, seems happy. Her husband is looking for a job and then they'll look for a place to live (they are with family right now).
I love the card!
