Cost and Content Concerns:
Some mothers having cesareans often think there won't be anything to really photograph with this type of delivery. The answer is quite the contrary! Cesarean mother's benefit from birth photography just as much, if not more so than mothers laboring, since there are moments in the day they will miss. With a photographer at your side, we're able to fill in many of the blanks in your story that would otherwise be lost. As for cost, even though you are scheduled, birth is unpredictable and babies can come early. Regardless, your photographer is still on call for you, and not taking on any clients around your due date. This results in a loss of income by not taking on other work. Also some women laboring, may only labor for 4 hours, some labor for 24 and still pay a set fee. Factor in editing and how many finished images are delivered the timing always seems to balance out.
