Is there anyone here that is planning on having a photographer at the birth?

I have a close friend who is planning to be there for me. I am excited. She does awesome work!

And for those who think OMG I don't want pics of everything going on down there, no shots like that going on for me. All very tasteful and touching.

I love the idea, but I doubt I'll budget for it.

I do like the idea of it, but don't really feel like adding that to our expenses. I mainly want one there because I'm worried that hubby will forget to take pictures, and I'll obviously be too busy to remind him!

I am! I just met with her this past week, actually.

My sister took pics throughout my labor and during my daughter's birth, but she's responsible for taking care of my daughter this time around.

I actually do want pictures of everything, including the actual birth. It was kind of an emergency situation when my daughter was born, requiring an episiotomy and forceps, so we don't have video or photos of when she actually came out.

Nope, DH will do a good job of getting photos of her afterwards and that is enough for us. I do love looking at others pics though.

I don't like people around when I don't feel well, no way I'll want pictures. I'm looking for a photographer for newborn pics but its expensive! We'd had a lot of medical bills this year so not sure i want to even spend the money in that.

I had a friend take pics last time and it was awesome, she took pics of some of the most random things, like the clock for instance when my son was born and I made a photo book out of it all...pretty awesome of her and didn't cost me anything, but for the book. I've asked her, but she hasn't gotten back with me and honestly it would have to be after school or on the weekend for me to get her to do it cuz she's a teacher! I hope it works out!

I would love too but #1 the birth photographer I want lives in Florida...I give birth in Delaware. I'm guessing she wouldn't make it in time (plus she has 7 kids so leaving them probably isn't an option) and #2 DH isn't really in to photography enough to make me fight to have someone there. I would love love love to have this birth photographed but I don't think it's going to happen unless there's a local photographer willing to show up (hint hint Jenn)

Allysmomma - that's so cool!

I like the idea of it, but like Jenny wouldn't be adding that to our baby budget. However I will bring my nicer camera, have DH take some pictures, and put a little note next to it in case a nurse would take a photo of DH and I if they come by to check on us.

At my hospital we are not allowed to take pictures during delivery at all. I only want my family to take pictures once my son is safely arrived and been checked by doctor and cleaned up so we can take our time and enjoy ourselves and i can try and breastfeed.

No, we will have a doula and she'll be able to take a few pictures of us, but overall I really don't want photos of me like that. I also want as few people in the room as possible. I AM getting newborn photos done though. I def. want those!
