Birth Story


Product Description


Allow Shelby Leigh Photography, LLC document your newborn’s Birth Story through her artful vision and love for storytelling. You only have this special moment once, and Shelby is there to capture every sweet moment, from the first cry, the first hugs and kisses, first baths and so much more. Since these sessions are so unique and are difficult to officially “schedule,” we will only schedule a few sessions throughout the year. While every Birth Story is a unique experience, Shelby documents everything from active labor through weighing baby, gently guided family poses and candids, and sometimes, even the first bath!
