Cincinnati Birth Photography

GIVING BIRTH IS POWERFUL.
IT IS IMPORTANT.
IT IS LIFE-CHANGING WORK.

It is a time when your inner strength comes into full focus and you know what you are capable of. It is raw and intimate and beautiful!

I want to be there to capture all of those moments for you: your connection with your partner, the intensity of bringing another human being into your journey, the first time you lay eyes on that precious child, those first few moments together as a family,…

These are moments you’ll want to cherish and share as you tell your birth story over and over again. This is what motherhood is all about. Creating life! A new human life, and a new life for you as well. This is just as important and life-shaping as your wedding day. You will want pictures to remember it all, because it can pass in such a blur.


PICTURES HELP US REMEMBER. THEY HELP US BECOME BETTER STORYTELLERS. IF A PICTURE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS…

HOW WILL YOU REMEMBER YOUR STORY?

Birth Photography

Collections Include:

  • A free pre-consultation
  • In-person meeting at your birth run through
  • 24/7 availability from 37 weeks through your birth
  • Photography of active labor and delivery to approximately 1-2 hours after birth
  • Each of your photos individually retouched

I also offer maternity & newborn sessions, heirloom albums, prints, and canvases, so that you can remember this incredibly sweet time.

Due to the on-call nature of birth photography, the number of sessions is limited.

Birth Session pricing starts at $795.



These are such special moments, and it all goes by so fast, you will want pictures to help you remember all the little details.

I have a limited amount of births I can take every month to ensure I can be there for you, so the earlier you book the better. Most moms-to-be tend to book within the 2nd trimester.

You get me (Becky)! This is my baby (so to speak), and if I am sick or for whatever reason unable to make it, I will have a backup photographer that will come in my place. Or, we can schedule a newborn session shortly after your little one is born, if that feels like a better choice for you.

Don’t you worry, I am in it ‘til that baby arrives! I will also stay 1-2 hours afterwards to capture more of those sweet whirlwind moments of baby’s weight, footprints, meeting other family members, etc. I do reserve the right to run home after 10+ hours to check on my children, get a bite to eat, etc. But I plan to be there with you to document this momentous occasion!

We will come do a newborn session with you and your family, to get those squishy little face and feet documented within 48 hours if possible, or whenever is convenient for you.

Let them focus on you and be present for you. Let me come and create some beautiful memories for you all to enjoy later. I promise, you’ll forget I’m even there. 

Absolutely! I require a $300 deposit to hold your spot, and then we break it up into 2 additional payments normally. Documenting this life-changing experience will be completely worth it!

As soon as you let your midwife know, please let me know! Better to call with a false alarm than for me to miss your birth! I will need to get my ducks in a row and be able to make it to you in time. Also, keep me updated once you start weekly visits as well, so I’m in the loop as to how things are progressing as we wait for your delivery day!

Call me! I’m on call 24/7 for you as you near your due date, and I’m prepared for babies coming in the middle of the night. It is all a part of the job. 🙂

Great! Let’s get together and chat in person! 

Your Experience

01

PRE-BIRTH

We’ll get together and hear how you imagine your labor happening, so that I can be prepared to capture your memories on such a unique special day.

02

RUN THROUGH

Whether you’re having a home birth or a hospital birth, we’ll walk through your plan to make sure that all of the ducks are in a row and we’re ready for when your baby arrives.

03

BABY SNUGGLES

About 4 weeks after your baby comes, we’ll meet up for your premier party to revisit all the special moments, and finalize pictures for your home. You’ll have your pictures in your hands no more than 6 weeks after your baby is born!

HEIRLOOM ALBUMS & WALL ARTWORK

BECAUSE WHEN IS THE LAST TIME
YOU LOOKED AT YOUR CAMERA ROLL?

Photos are absolutely worthless if they only live in the cloud.
You might as well not hire a photographer.

We want our families to get something more!
Your photographs aren’t complete until you can experience your memories in your hands.

As a full-service photographer, we’ll walk you through our simple process of designing your heirloom album, and museum-grade wall art so that you get to have and hold your memories, forever.

We seriously love our albums and prints! It’s how we do everything for our own family. They’ll last through pets, kids, and your grandkids.

Birth Photography Payment Plans

I offer easy payment plans so that you don’t miss out on any of your memories!b

The Smyth Collective Birth is a labor of love from Becky Smyth. Becky loves everything about birth and wants to see families look back on this season of life with joy! Celebrating with a birth photography session captures these memories forever!
