If you’re on the fence (about birth photography), just meet with Lauren at her studio. We are SO glad we hired her, and will always have her at any future births as she’s a part of our family now. We treasure our birth album and our birth video so much, and our son loves to watch his birth story.

Welcome, and congratulations on your pregnancy! I am a professional birth photographer and provide un unparalleled experience from our first contact to product delivery. I serve the metro Atlanta area and provide services for hospital and home birth. I photograph births at Northside Hospital, Piedmont Hospital, Atlanta Medical Center, DeKalb Medical Center, and Kennestone Hospital as well as home births.

What is birth photography and why do I want to hire you as our professional birth photographer? 

Birth photography is about the emotion filled moments during the most important day of your life. It is NOT graphic or gory. Remember what a big deal planning your wedding was? You were a bride. Now you're about to be a parent. You have so much joy waiting ahead of you, and the emotions you experience on the day that your baby is born are like nothing you have ever felt before (even if it's not your first baby!). 

Why do you want my services? Because you won't be able to show your partner what they looked like when they saw your baby for the first time. You won't be able to see how your partner loved and supported you throughout your labor. With my services, you will be able to look back at those moments and the story of your baby's birth for a lifetime. With me focusing on your photos,  you can focus on being fully present in the moments of the day as it unfolds. 

Birth photography captures:

Your partner holding your hand through a contraction.

The looks on your faces when you hold your baby and finally see their face for the first time.

The moment your baby's tiny fingers find yours and grasp them. 

The awe on your partner's face. The awe on yours.

When your partner leans in to give you that sweet kiss with pride, triumph, and relief all in one.

The joyful tears in grandma's eyes when she sees her grandchild for the first time. 

The blissful afterglow of it all.

Lauren is AMAZING. I knew before even giving birth that I wanted an epidural, and was nervous that she might judge me for that. So many of the birth stories I saw and still see on social media are all about water birth or going all natural and I didn’t want that. When I met with her and told her my plans, she didn’t bat an eyelash and was nothing but supportive! During my birth, I was a little freaked out by the epidural side effects, and she was reassuring and calmed me down. She even held my hair back when my husband needed help to help me, and was a source of support in more ways that we could ever possibly begin to thank her for. If you want a beautiful storytelling of your baby’s birthday by a wonderful person who cares about her clients, you need to meet Lauren.

How does this work?

It's simple! We'll set up a complimentary no obligation consultation in my studio in Grant Park, right by Zoo Atlanta. When we meet you'll have a chance to ask any questions you like and see more of my work. You will also see and touch the products included with each collection to determine what the best fit is for you! To reserve your Birth Session, you will remit your agreement and retainer payable by either check or credit card. Your final balance is due by 37 weeks of pregnancy. I go on call for you at 37 or 38 weeks (your choice) for a four week period. This means I'm available 24/7 to join you when you're in confirmed active labor. I'll arrive to your birth location, document your baby's birth story, and deliver your selected collection to your home 2-4 weeks after the birth.

My husband and I weren’t sure if we wanted to hire a birth photographer, but we decided to meet with Lauren and see what it was all about. I had seen some photos on Facebook and thought it was a really neat idea. Our main concern was that having someone in the room with us would be intrusive and that the photos wouldn’t be ones that we could share with our friends and family. I also didn’t want a flash going off in my face. After we met Lauren in her studio, we instantly felt at ease and knew we wanted to hire her. She has such a warm spirit, and is so sweet. She checked in with me several times during my pregnancy and after delivery just to see how I was.

When the big day arrived, she was there and was a calming presence but also like a fly on the wall. I liked knowing that she had gone through childbirth herself and knew how I was feeling and what was happening. She knew I was in transition before the nurses did just by watching me. Her hearing impairment doesn’t affect her capabilities at all and seems to give her a sixth sense for reading body language! I didn’t feel like I was being stared at, and was able to have private moments with my husband. Lauren didn’t use flash once, and I didn’t even notice she was there when things got serious. We LOVE our birth film and the gorgeous album, and are so, so glad that we invested in Lauren’s services.
