Birth and Baby Model Call

Want beautiful photographs from your labor and delivery? Nervous about having enough support for your natural birth? Feel like you just could never afford a doula AND birth photographer who is actually GOOD at what she does, trustworthy and worth hiring? Then this opportunity is for you. Iā€™m looking specifically for home births and deliveries at UnityPoint Health Pekin. Home births with our new midwife Jenni Collins may have additional incentives available. Additionally, I am looking for more families interested in VIDEOS of their postpartum experience (or the first 48 hours) at home or in hospital.

*Service fee guarantees my on-call availability. I will be available day or night from begin date to delivery. Service fee also guarantees I will be present during active labor through golden hour. Families that opt to not complete measurements of baby during golden hour may forfeit the opportunity for me to photograph those moments. Service fee is non-refundable. In the event the birth is missed, service fee is still applied to on-call period, golden hour images, and a freshie session within 48 hours of the birth. If a freshie session is missed, a posed newborn session or in home lifestyle session outside of 48 hours of life will be completed.

Additional images will be available for purchase at $25 per digital image or in bundles of 5 for $50 per bundle. Additional products include lay-flat albums, keepsake boxes for flat prints and USBs, enlargements and canvas work.

**Word-of-mouth referrals include recommending Brittney Hogue online and in person when opportunities arise. For every family that books a photo+video package within one year of your session, you will receive a complimentary milestone session which includes 10 images of your child. Milestone sessions may be redeemed through 2nd birthday. Your friend will receive a small gift for their newborn and a small gift for mother as a thank you for booking.
