Let's chat!

My calendar fills up quickly, especially for birth sessions - so it’s never too early to reach out to secure your spot. But if you found me at the end of your pregnancy, no worries, I often take last minute birth sessions if space is available.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q:  WHY HIRE A PROFESSIONAL BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER?

A:  Because you (and your loved ones) don’t want to miss a single moment! The moment of birth can be a fast event, often in low light. You want someone there to capture those moments professionally, authentically, with the right equipment, liability coverage & experience.

 

Q:  WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED AND WHAT AREAS DO YOU COVER?

A:  I am located in central Broward county, the perfect location to cover births from Miami to West Palm, within 1 Hour-travel distance.

 

Q: WHY IS BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY SO COSTLY?

A:  Birth Photography, while not a necessity, is an investment into your family’s legacy you will not regret. Similar to when you hire a wedding photographer, birth photography also documents a major life event; except births aren't scheduled (for the most part). We are on-call 24/7 for weeks at a time (about 4 weeks w/each client), ready to go at any time of the day or night- and there are no re-takes! Being a birth photographer requires a special set of skills, equipment, experience & commitment; and I LOVE IT! Your investment allows me to hire professional back-ups, reliable babysitting, stay current with latest technology, equipment, carry liability insurance & cover general business expenses.

 

Q:  DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?

A:  Absolutely! I believe every family deserves to have these fleeting moments captured forever. We get creative and work out convenient payment plans as long as the balance is paid by 36 weeks. Please ask about Baby Registry!

 

Q:  HOW MANY IMAGES CAN I EXPECT?

A:  It’s hard to predict exact number of images because it depends on the length of the birth. But you get all of your photos fully edited, usually anywhere from 100-250 images on average.

 

Q:  WHEN DO YOU ARRIVE AT THE BIRTH?​

A:  We stay in communication often leading up to your due date, and once in active labor I join you at your delivery place when you are 5-6cm dialated since early labor can last from several hours to days, and even spread out over a few weeks.

 

Q:  HOW LONG WILL YOU STAY FOR MY BIRTH? IS THERE A TIME LIMIT?​

A:  Once you’re in active labor, I stay with you for the remainder of labor/delivery whether it’s 3 hrs or 30 hrs. And once baby arrives safely earth side, I stay for another 2 hrs postpartum to make sure we get those special bonding moments right after birth before giving you much needed rest.  

 

Q:  WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU CANNOT MAKE THE BIRTH?

A:  In case of an emergency or extreme illness, I have a couple of experienced photographers available to come & cover your birth. If we miss your birth because baby came too quickly, the amount paid is credited for photography services of your choosing (ie: Fresh48, newborn, milestone or family session). If we miss your birth because there was a lack of communication on your part, then we will happily join you as soon as possible and capture the remaining of your birth story, but no credits or refunds will be given.

​​

Q:  WHAT HAPPENS IF I END UP WITH AN EMERGENCY CESAREAN?

A:  Some hospitals allow us to come in as long as it’s not a life-threatening circumstance, and I am happy to help you advocate for that should the time come. It is ultimately hospital policy and the anesthesiologist who gets to decide, but I remain there, capturing the before and after, should they not allow me inside the OR.

 

Q:  ARE YOU GOING TO POST MY PHOTOS ON THE INTERNET?

A:  Your privacy, safety and satisfaction is my biggest priority. But I do love to empower and encourage women through beautiful visual storytelling in order to change the culture we live in, towards more family-centered birthing. So, I will always ask if we may share your birth story images, but all images are shared 100% with your permission.

WHAT MAMAS ARE SAYING!

"Gladys was so amazing. Capturing the most important moment in our lives. She was caring, patient and loving. Highly recommend her."

-BHP Mom Paulina H.

"I wasn't sure I wanted pictures or a photographer in there at such an intimate time. Gladys was amazing , she didn't pose us or block anyone else to get a shot! Her pictures are classy and my goods are discretely hidden so that all you can see is my beautiful girl arriving! I loved not only the pictures, but also the experience Gladys provided. She was part of my journey into motherhood! Love her!"

- BHP Mom Leila Z.
