Oregon Birth Photography Model Call

ALWAYS REMEMBER EVERY DETAIL OF YOUR BABY’S BIRTH DAY



CALLING ALL EXPECTANT FAMILIES IN OREGON BIRTHING AT HOME OR A BIRTH CENTER

First baby, third, maybe your sixth (kudos to you!), you know that this time is FLYING by. The first thing you do is create your baby checklist: clothes, diapers, monitor, whatever bassinet is the latest craze, nursing bras, adult diapers (yeah, that’s a thing). One thing you don’t need to think about is my camera.

If you want high quality photos and are planning to birth at home or a freestanding birth center, keep reading!

 

 


 

 

THIS ONE’S FOR YOU, PARTNER.

No need to fumble with the phone or camera. I’ve got this!
You have an important job as well, and I’m going to make sure that you have photos of that too. Helping her through her contractions is a big job. You can’t hold a camera while giving her hip squeezes. You’re part of this story in a major way, and you should be able to be present. This is your birth story too.

 


 

BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY IS MUCH LIKE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

It’s a BIG important day that we look forward to, sometimes all our life. Great lengths are gone to, in preparation for this day and you want it to be PERFECT. The getting ready part is much like labor, and the ceremony is the birth. Happening so quickly, it is THE moment that you’ve been waiting for. The wedding reception is just like the golden hour.. Birth photography is the documentation of your day as it happens, however it happens. You wear your strength and courage like your wedding dress, and it is without a doubt, Just as important of a day as your wedding day.

YOU’LL FEEL THE EMOTION LOOKING AT YOUR PHOTOS.

 


 

HEY, I’M MEG.

I OFFER BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY FOR FAMILIES LIKE YOU.

I have birthed 1 daughter, and I truly treasured the holistic midwifery care that I received. Being present at a birth and documenting the feeling of power, control, and love a mom feels from being truly nurtured by her village is just the best.

A couple things about me: I’m a birth nerd (okay, just a nerd in general) and my families say I bring a fun energy to their space. I want you to know that I’m bubbly and happy when I walk in your room, but I know when to respect the environment. I want you to know this – because who you accept into your birth space is critical. I respect having the choice to birth however you want, and I will support you in your decisions to birth how you want.

So, how much does it cost?

 

Including the prenatal consult, on-call time, unlimited time photographing your birth, hand editing of all digitals, and maternity session…

Total Value is $1850

HOWEVER, IF YOU’RE ACCEPTED FOR THIS MODEL CALL YOU WILL RECEIVE A CHOICE BETWEEN TWO CUSTOM REP PACKAGES!

 

I’M READY TO APPLY NOW!

 


 

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE A BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY “MODEL”?

As a birth photography model, you’re receiving a custom rep package so that I can work share space with home birth and birth center families and the birth workers that surround them.

A family who signs up for this model call will be asked to sign a model release in exchange for the custom rep package so I can promote home birth and birth center photography to other families! Sharing their intimate moments with the world is not for everyone and that is okay. Birth is an empowering experience, and I love sharing images that depict the raw side of birth and motherhood. If you like to be a symbol for women empowerment, and birth positivity, this IS the opportunity for you. #girlpower. If you are a little bit timid to the idea of sharing your photos for the world to see, or if you are planning on a hospital birth, and still would like to have your story documented for yourself, I would still like to offer you a discount of 10% off any birth package.

 


 

TRUST ME, I’M A PROFESSIONAL

I come PREPARED. I have two cameras. If one isn’t working, I have a backup. I prepare my bag to leave with moment’s notice. That means my batteries are charged, my cards are cleared, my lenses are clean and ready, and I have all other (possibly) necessary items packed up too. I have photographed birth in low light, and bright light. I am ready for ANY lighting situation to arise. Aaaaand I have childcare on stand-by.
