In creating a pricing structure I knew I wanted it to emanate simplicity. I offer three basic structures: petite, full & birth. Each pricing base has the ability to add things like more people, a photo album, more digital downloads, etc. Scroll down to learn about each one.

 
 
We loved our photo session with Felicia! She was highly recommended by a close friend and I’m happy I jumped on the chance to book a session with her. We are very pleased with our photos. She also makes it easy to order prints and share information with friends and family so they can place orders on their own. Thank you Felicia we’ll see you next year for another session!

Felicia was so calm and non-invasive during the birth of our daughter. As contractions increased, I was aware that she was there but she did not make me feel, “watched.” It was as if she held space for me, as a fellow mother who had been there before and knew with wisdom, the sacredness that was unfolding. She was warm, respectful, encouraging and quick to lend a helping hand where need be. We were blown away by all the sweet moments Felicia captured without us even knowing it. We will cherish these photos forever!

birth photography - starting at $775

 

 

With my first son, I went into labor during my maternity session. Originally I wasn't planning to have my birth photographed. (I didn't even know that was a thing people did!) But the photographer offered and I went with it. To this day I am so happy the emotions of that day (the strength, raw joy, intensity, euphoria) were captured. If your curious or want to learn more please reach out! 

  • Photojournalistic coverage of pre-labor, labor & delivery in the hospital, at home or at a birth center
  • Photos during those first breaths of life
  •  150+ digital images delivered 3 weeks (more often less than) after delivery
 
Felicia is an excellent photographer. She’s easy going, patient, and really fun to be around. She makes the whole photo process comfortable for everyone and she produces stunning work! I would definitely recommend her for any of your photo needs.

frequently asked questions


 

general photography // q+a

Do you photograph weddings? Not as often as babies and families, but I'd love to! Send me a message for pricing.

Are you available for travel? Of course! Travel expenses will be added to session cost.

When should I have my maternity photos taken? Anytime after 33 weeks I think is best.

Where should I print my photos? I recommend printing directly from the client gallery. This will be the highest quality. 

Will you be doing another "Ma Dreams" project, if so how can I be a part? I hope to do more projects like MD but at the moment extra projects are on hold. Inquire and let me know you'd like to be part of my next series.

Do you photography other events such as a first birthday parties, bridal showers, bat mitzvahs, etc? Yes! Just send me a message and we can talk more about what you're looking for and pricing.

birth photography // q+a

What will it be like to have a birth photographer? My hope is that you might not even notice I'm there capturing this beautiful day. I will say this again and again, your comfort is priority. I will step out at times to give you space and feel free to kick me out! Every birth is different, my goal is to be calm and flexible throughout the birthing process. 

When should I hire a birth photographer? I only book two, on occasion three, births per month. (I want to make sure no deliveries overlap!) This causes my calendar to fill quickly! If you know you want a birth photographer I'd recommend going ahead and contacting me as soon as you have a guess date. In the event I do not have any openings I can direct you to other birth photographers in town. 

Will you use flash and artificial lights? I use as much natural and available light as much as possible. I try and stay away from flash as much as I can because I know it can be distracting. That being said, births that happen at night do need some flash to capture key moments. Your comfort is my top priority so if in any case you feel uncomfortable I will put the flash away. 

Will you share my birth on your website? Birth is extremely personal and intimate.  I love sharing birth photos and stories but I want to respect what you're comfortable with and will not post unless I have your OK. (We can also revisit your day later if you want a platform to share your birth experience!)
