Got any ideas for me? mom of three 3 kids; Missouri 5271 posts

I am hiring a birth photographer and she wants to know if I want any specific shots. I am drawing a blank but I know I can ask you ladies and get all sorts of ideas!! What memories of your labor would you want captured?? Any suggestions would be helpful. I know I am going to want a "seeing baby for the first time" shot, and maybe a breastfeeding pic... maybe skin-to-skin shot.
TIA!!

Do you wants shots of the baby being born or the cord being cut?

Newborn butt shot!!!! Lol
If you don't mind me asking, how much is she charging? I'm trying to get a price range to see if I want mine done professionally or just ask SO or a nurse to do it

Quoting 1stTimeBabyMaker:" Newborn butt shot!!!! Lol If you don't mind me asking, how much is she charging? I'm trying to get a price range to see if I want mine done professionally or just ask SO or a nurse to do it"


the one around here charges $600+ $100 per hour she's there. I have heard of others charging $1200+
The one I found is rather new at birth photography and is Charging $150 + gas since she lives 2 hours from the hospital.
You can also find some that charge her price but dont do any editing for you.

Pushing shots, above the waits lol. First on the chest, the clock for time, dad cutting the cord, weight check, getting dried off, skin to skin, breast feeding. Before the actual birth, pictures of the monitors with contractions/baby's heart rate.
