Emily Goodstein Photography | Washington DC Birth Photography | FAQ - EmilyGoodstein

Do you also take headshots, family portraits, or posed newborn photos?

I'm focusing only on birth photography right now -- there's nothing better than fresh baby toes and heroic mamas.

How can I get in touch with you? I want to know more!

Send me an email – I’d love to hear from you.


Have you ever been on NPR talking about birth photography?

Yes! You can listen to the story from October 2014 here.


What is birth story photography?

Birth story photos document the day babies are born, including moms and dads and grandparents and doctors or doulas and midwives and tiny toes and hospital charts or birthing center clocks. By themselves, birth story photos are stunning and celebrate an amazing day. Together, they tell the story of little people arriving into the world.


What is included in your birth story photography package?

If you choose me as your birth photographer, I will make myself available for two weeks before and two weeks after your estimated delivery date. I will join you at your home, birth center, and/or hospital to capture your entire labor and delivery process. I’ll provide photo coverage of your labor and delivery including photographs of baby meeting his or her siblings and family members immediately after birth.


How do you share birth story images?

A preview set of fully edited, high-resolution images will be shared in a private online album within one week of your baby’s arrival for use on birth announcements etc. The full set of high resolution edited images in a private online album will be ready within two months of your baby’s arrival (with one-click download capability). With your permission, I will also create a blog post featuring a selection of images to tell the story of your baby’s arrival.


All images I capture will be shared online using private, password-protected albums. A small selection of images (approved by you) will be shared online using social media or on my blog.


What’s the book I heard about?

I completed the food photography for a book about restaurants in Washington, DC called the Washington, DC Chef’s Table. My friend Beth Kanter wrote it and we had a great time with the project.
