Anyone have a birth photographer?
 
Just wondering if anyone has used a birth photographer before, or what your thoughts are. We are considering it, but it's kind of spendy.

I think it would be fun, and my mom is a photographer and I know she'd love to do it...but DH and I like to be the only ones in the room during active labor.

I'm sure it helps if it's your bff:goodvibes: Why can't mine be a photographer?! I still think I'd like to. Now to get DH on board with the idea...

My good friend is a photographer too and will be coming to take pictures at the end of labor and the after photos of the baby. We just lucked out ;) I can say that in my area there are a couple photographers who will do it for very little or no money in exchange for being able to show the more tasteful photos to clients wanting to hire them for a birth. If you are comfortable with the photographer sharing some of your photos then I would go that route.

I'm having one :thumbsup: I was able to hire her when she was offering an AWESOME special (maternity, birth, and newborn photos) for an insanely affordable price (like unheard of in this area for a professional). I'm excited, even though my last labor was quick I'm hoping this next one is at least as long or a bit longer so she can get more photos :blush:

I'll be having one next time. I started using her almost a year and a half ago for nb pics and have been back about 6 times so I've gotten to know her. She's pretty inexpensive- I don't remember the price exactly but a couple hundred plus a downloadable gallery.

You must be just about the only person who wants their labor to last longer!

I've been thinking about that, if I could find someone I was comfortable with. Everyone I've checked with around here is close to $400, ouch!

I didnt with number 1 and still regret it. I did with number 2. Worth every penny and I had a super quick labor. I got to the hospital and about a half hr later the photographer was there. Probably a half hr after that I was meeting DD lol. She got a lot of good shots though. Stuff that we did not have of my first birth. Labor pics. Nursing pics. Lil baby details like ears and feet. Wonderful wonderful stuff. Im glad we did spend the $$. It was worth it. Both of my labors were so quick, I kinda feel like my memory with my first was fuzzy though I was not medicated. I just think it was so fast and the pain is so intense and youre so focused you cant take it all in. The pics really are sweet to look at.
