ALWAYS REMEMBER EVERY DETAIL OF YOUR BABY’S BIRTH DAY

Professional Birth Photography allows you to feel beautiful and powerful without forgetting a single moment.

Imagine: what if…

Z YOU AND YOUR PARTNER DIDN’T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT FUMBLING WITH THE CAMERA THROUGHOUT YOUR BABY’S BIRTH DAY.

Z YOU HAD EACH AND EVERY DETAIL ARTISTICALLY AND PROFESSIONALLY PHOTOGRAPHED.

Z YOU HAD NO REGRETS WHEN IT CAME TO GIVING BIRTH TO YOUR BABY!

hey!

I’m Kristen! I offer birth photography for moms like you!  

When I gave birth, my birth photographers captured all the special moments of my children’s birth that I will forever treasure. The ways my husband and sister supported me throughout the LONG 31 hours labor of my first birth and the 8 hour labor of my second birth. The calm birth environment. The midwife checking on the baby’s heartbeat. The moment my children were born and put onto my chest. Seeing my husband’s reaction when he saw them for the first time. The moment we found out how much our children weighed. Our kid’s hand wrapped around my finger. And our first family picture just minutes after birth. Those are all pictures you’ll find in  both of my children’s birth story book.

Whenever I feel discouraged with motherhood (*cough* fourth trimester *cough* toddlerhood *cough* sleepless nights), I love looking at the pictures to remember the beauty and chaos of birth. It was one of the hardest moments of my life but I also never felt more powerful and empowered. So if I survived giving birth, I can do ANYTHING.

It breaks my heart when families don’t choose birth photography due to misinformation, cost or generally being overwhelm doing “all the things” to prep for the baby! I’ve met so many mothers who regret not having a birth photographer at their kids’ birth. I’ve never met a parent who regretted having one.

Now I offer birth photography for moms who cherish their and want to capture every detail.

 

“Kristen was amazing and it made our birthing experience wonderful. [The pictures] are so beautiful and Mitch and I will treasure them.”

Birth Doula & Photography Client

Birth Photography is a photojournalistic style of photography to show off what’s unique about your family & birth!

Here’s what you’ll get:

What about hospital policies?

Due to COVID-19, most hospitals only allow 1-2 support persons at the birth. But a birth doula does not count as one of those support person because it’s been proven that doulas improve birth outcomes! So it’s actually 1-2 support person PLUS a doula. I’m a trained doula through DONA International and fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

“Kristen had such positive and encouraging emotional support for me. It helped me put my mind in a great place for labor.”

“Kristen Schell recently photographed the birth of my fourth child. She made every effort to ascertain my wishes regarding modesty and which aspects of labor and birth I wanted to document. She was very supportive and interested in my personal story and how she could help preserve the memories of my son’s special birth day! Overall, she went above and beyond and clearly has a passion for birth and championing moms!”

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Hospitals have limited who can be in the room with the birthing person to a partner and maybe a support person. A doula do not count towards the support people limit because they are an essential worker. It’s an executive order from the office of the Governor of Michigan. Luckily, I am a trained doula that was trained by DONA International so if you are selected you will also receive my doula services. Not sure what a doula is? Click the button below.
