Documenting labor, delivery, and postpartum magic 

Birth Photography

When I started my photography business back in 2013, my dream began as being a birth photographer.  This is the foundation of my business and my passion for photography. With over a decade of experience, doula training, and photography gear built around the needs for low light labor situations, I am fully prepared to make documenting your birth my number one priority. And I cannot wait to hear about the birth experience your heart desires!

Look through my birth gallery, view some full birth coverage on my YouTube page, take a look at some of my birth photography blog posts, and complete my contact form so we can plan a free consultation!

Say Hello

Step 1 of 5

By nature, childbirth is a very private journey and many of the conditions for great photography do not align with what most mamas might need for labor to progress smoothly. When at all possible, I think it's important for expecting parents to meet in person with their birth photographer to get to know each other, discuss any past births, your anticipated birth team, expectations and desires, and ways to make sure mom's needs are always top priority.
Let's schedule an in person consultation to make sure I will be the perfect addition to your birth team! The booking process is simple and you will receive lots of great tips for having a birth photographer present. 

Consultation & Booking

Step 2 of 5

Your booking fee is due at the time you secure a spot on my calendar. The remaining investment can be made in convenient payments with the balance being expected before I go on call for you at 37 weeks gestation.

We will remain in close contact leading up to your birth. Your comfort is my number one priority. If at anytime, you decide not to have me present to document your birth or if you are unable to contact me in time, money paid can be used toward future photo sessions. I also specialize in newborn, family, couples, boudoir, and events to name a few. Your photography needs well be well-covered and there will never be any pressure to do something that may negatively impact your birth experience.


Step 3 of 5

You've just done some of the hardest work of your life. I always feel honored to have been a part of a birth team and am beyond excited to look through your pictures.  Regardless of how long I am at a birth,  the real work for me doesn't start until I get home. Preparing a birth gallery can take upwards of 10 hours. But, I know how excited you are to see your pictures and hate to keep you waiting! I'll be in close touch to see how you are healing up, plan your newborn photo shoot, and give you an idea of when to expect your birth photos. Typically, I will have a couple initial teasers to use for a birth announcement within 1-2 days as well as a few more teasers on social media (with permission, of course!) within 1-2 weeks. Depending on the time of year, your full gallery is usually ready for you in about 4-6 weeks.

After Your Birth

Step 4 of 5

Don't just tuck your beautiful birth photos away on a hard drive. Let's put together an album and some beautiful prints to show off your growing family's love!
I'm easy to reach to answer your questions and walk you through the process.

“Tammy is a phenomenal photographer and worth every penny! She made us feel like we were old friends in no time, which led to such a fun and relaxed photo session. She was always concerned with the comfort of my baby and me and willing to patiently work on any shot that we wanted to try...even with the family dog! The pictures she did for our newborn are absolutely gorgeous. From answering questions before and after the session, to the photo shoot, to the pictures themselves-every aspect of working with her far exceeded our expectations!”

“We had such a great experience from our newborn session! Tammy was very laid back and flexible with scheduling the session. At first I wasn’t sure how I would like doing the photo session in our home but now I’m so glad we did! She was so patient and I never felt rushed or stressed. She had great ideas for photos/poses and they all turned out beautifully! We LOVE our pictures and will definitely be scheduling a family session in the future!”

“I could not be anymore pleased with all the images I have received throughout the years. They fill me with happiness and tears when I look at them. Tammy takes her time to capture images that she knows you will enjoy. She is patient with children, I have four, and can get smiles out of them when no one else can! I will always cherish the pictures that I have gotten from Little Leapling. It’s like looking at pieces of my heart every time I look at a memory she has photographed upon the walls of my home.”

"Tammy is an incredible photographer and we could not have chosen a better photographer to take the pictures of our family for the last three years. She always makes us feel at ease so that we could just be ourselves during the shootings. Photos always turn out stunning and we are so grateful! She is super responsive over text/email and always provides our photos in time. We would definitely recommend Tammy to families with kids since she can easily connect with kids and get their best smiles!"

"We have had 4 sessions with Tammy and have loved both the session time and photos from each one. She has been so easy to work with both in setting up an appointment and during the sessions. Tammy is wonderful with my daughter, who I was nervous would be shy but took to her right away. We’re looking forward to getting many more wonderful photos of our family with her."

"Tammy with Little Leapling Photography is not just a photographer, she is an artist and magician all in one! When deciding what photographer to use for my family pictures, I took my time and searched other photographer's photo galleries. Tammy's photos had such a magical quality to them, they stood out amongst her competitors. She is a mom too and knows how much you value those pictures of your growing family! She is worth every penny and will make your family picture taking session a breeze. The result will be photos that you will cherish for years to come!"
