Sydney reached out to me a few months before her due date to book a birth story and I was SO excited! She planned on delivering at Anderson Hospital in Maryville, IL, and I had never shot a birth there before.
A few weeks prior to her due date, she mentioned hiring a birth photographer to her OB, who informed her birth photographer is prohibited at the hospital. We were both heartbroken but decided to do a fresh 48 session so that she still would have photographs from the first few days with her new baby. I now tell all of my potential birth clients if they are considering hiring a birth photographer to capture their birth story, make sure they discuss their wishes with their provider as soon as possible.
