Becca Brendler, an ever-evolving creative celebrating the human experience, is Joyful Birthing’s photographer. Becca’s enthusiasm for life, magnetic energy, and creative flair has taken many forms. She’s a mother of twins, family and life-style photographer, yoga/mindfulness teacher, and celebrated stylist.
Becca’s photography career can be dated back to 1993 when she found and connected instantly with film and the magic of her summer camp’s dark room. Forever interested in the beauty of human interaction, the stillness of moments and having the ability to freeze history in the making, Becca never stopped learning about the technicalities of photography as an art form. She studied all through high-school and continued her learning as she studied abroad in Italy. Becca believes that as parents we are raising our young families in a world of beautiful chaos; each image she captures is her artistic approach to finding the slowness and beauty in life. Her goal is to listen to families and help them to preserve the ever-changing, too-fast-paced world of family life, childhood and innocence.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE A MATERNITY SESSION?
The best time for your maternity shoot typically is between 30-34 weeks. If you’re having twins I like to say around 26-28 weeks. It’s all a personal preference, but I want you to have enough bump to show off, but not be too worried about moving around in tighter clothes or on heals for too long, etc. if your not quite sure, please reach out and we’ll work through it together.
WHEN SHOULD I SCHEDULE A NEWBORN SESSION?
Be in touch with Becca as soon as you know you would like to book a session. She will schedule a tentative date on her calendar based on your due date, and will allow for flexibility in timing based on when your baby actually arrives. The best time to schedule a newborn session is with the first week of life. At this time, your baby is still very sleepy and she can gently position him/her without long periods of wakefulness.
WHERE WILL MY SESSION TAKE PLACE?
With the exception of newborn sessions all sessions take place at a mutually agreed upon outdoor location. Becca has lots of favorite areas ready to suggest but please let her know if you have a special spot in mind. Newborn sessions always take place in the client’s home unless there is limited natural light available in which case you can discuss options.
WHAT DOES A TYPICAL CLIENT SPEND?
This is totally dependent upon the client, but typical clients spend between $550 and $1800, depending on the length of the session, digital download packages and large professional prints. Becca has curated her packages based on varying individual needs & budgets. Please reach out to learn more.
