2023 Birth Packages & Pricing
for births in the Cedar Rapids/Iowa City, IA area
I am as clear and forthcoming as I can be about pricing! Why? Because I know that if I were searching the internet for a service myself and they didn't include any pricing, I'd probably move right on to the next website. If you have any questions at all, please let me know! We can meet in person, talk over the phone, or email back and forth, whatever works best for you!
WHOAbaby! Birth Bundle: $2395+tax (includes birth retainer fee)
Want the ultimate package that captures your entire journey to motherhood? The WHOAbaby! bundle gives you a chance to photograph your belly, birth AND baby. You'll get an EXPRESSions maternity session ($395), an OHbaby! birth package ($1695), AND an EXPRESSions newborn session ($495), all for this special bundle price! This package saves you nearly $300 compared to purchasing all 3 sessions separately!!
OHbaby! Birth Package: $1695+tax (includes birth retainer fee)
If you want your baby's full birth story, this is the package for you. The OHbaby! gives you all of the best photos to tell your birth story. It includes the HEYbaby! package plus a beautiful high-end custom photo box with your favorite 100 4x6” prints included. You'll also get those 100 images as high-res digital files on a USB drive in both BW and color so you will be able to store, save, print and share as you'd like. But your package doesn't end there! I will also create a beautiful slideshow birth story set to music which will be yours to view and treasure forever. Plus, sign the model release and as a bonus I will create a special (G-rated) birth story slideshow that you will feel completely comfortable sharing with your friends and family!
HEYbaby! Birth Package: $1195+tax (includes birth retainer fee)
If you want photos of your birth, I want to be there. So I've put together the HEYbaby! package that gives you the essentials of birth photography at the lowest price I can offer. The HEYbaby! includes my services as an on-call photographer 24/7 surrounding your due date, photography of your birth from active labor through about 1-2 hours after the baby is born, and 10 of your favorite digital images from your birth story. Additional digital images are available at 5/$100.
FRESHbaby! Package: $795+tax (includes birth retainer fee)
The FRESHbaby! package captures all the newness, excitement, and sweetness of that freshly-newborn baby who changes so quickly in the days after birth. I'll come to the hospital or your home within 48 hours of delivery and photograph a 1-hr lifestyle session as soon as I can get there after the birth within normal business hours. The session will document some of those first moments of life with your new baby--possibly even the introduction of the baby to siblings, footprinting, a first bath or other remarkable moments. You'll receive 10 of your favorite images from the session, available as digital downloads, ready for printing. The FRESHbaby! package is a great option for those looking for an alternative to full birth photography coverage.
Please check with me about doula discounts, and YES, if you are an NCPVIP, the 15% discount also applies to birth packages!
All prices are subject to change at anytime. Sales tax must be added to ALL photography packages and services. $400 non-refundable retainer is required to book any of these packages. This fee reserves your EDD's "timeslot" on my calendar to help ensure my availability to be at your birth in order to provide you service as your photographer.
