SCHEDULED C-SECTION

the experience

What to expect from our Scheduled C-Section service ...

Make this birthing experience your own.

Each birth is a unique, once-in-a-lifetime experience. This customized photo session documents your birthing journey — from your entry into the operating room, the first peek at your new baby over the drape, your baby's weighing and measuring and your first meet and snuggle.

You’ll get high quality images from our time together, perfect for spreading the good news online and printing up to 16x20.

However baby comes into your world, birth is a personal and moving time for you, your family, and your baby. Capture your experience, and make this your moment.

Personalized to capture your birthing experience.

When you invite me to capture your birthing experience, you can rest assured that your hospital does, too. At Ascension Seton Hospitals, I’m more than a guest. Unlike any other photographer, I’m pink-badged and credentialed to document all phases of C-section delivery and postpartum at all Seton facilities.  

Seton trusts me to provide calm, quiet photo-journalistic coverage of all the emotion and excitement you experience in the moment you experience it — and so can you. I’m honored to be a go-to for so many birthing mothers. If you have more questions about any of our in-hospital sessions, just get in touch.

Trust us to keep things simple and easy.

The photos you get from your session are real, raw, rare reflections of your unique birthing experience. We love capturing images that have the power to transport you back to transformational moments that made you a mother.

Hello & Co. photos are watermark free. We never put our logo on your experience! There’s no need to sell you extra images or files after the fact. You get all the photos you expect, just the way you need them, so you can share or print as you wish.

faqs

01. Where do you conduct Scheduled C-Section photo sessions?
As the official and exclusive provider of Mother & Newborn photography for Ascension Seton Hospitals in Austin, we offer in-hospital sessions at Seton facilities. I am Seton-badged, credentialed, and trained on operating room procedures. No other photographer in Austin can say that. You can be confident about Hello & Co.’s ability to capture your unique C-Section birthing experience, and help make it your own.

02. How do you document my C-section?
When you have a Scheduled C-section, I will arrive in time to say hello during pre-op preparation. I’ll start shooting once you enter the operating room, and stay through delivery. Familiar with the where’s and when’s of C-section births, I know how to capture great moments while staying discreetly out of the way. Depending on your doctor, I strive to capture the context of the room as well as shoot from the head, over the drape, and from the foot, to document your real birthing experience. After delivery, I stay for about 30 minutes to capture baby’s first moments with you. Then, I slip away quietly so your new family can rest and bond.

03. I know my C-Section is scheduled, but what if something changes?
Birth is beautifully unpredictable. When you book a scheduled C-section session with Hello & Co., we work to make your experience effortless. We’ll set up a simple communications plan that allows you or a trusted family member to update me on the timing of your delivery.
