F A Q
Q: HOW WILL YOU FILM MY CHILDBIRTH SO I CAN SHARE WITH FAMILY AND THEY WON'T CRINGE?
A: It is completely possible to artfully record this part of your birthography® using angles that are creative, tasteful, and non-cringeworthy.
Q: WHAT IF I HAVE A C-SECTION -- EVEN IF IT'S NOT PLANNED?
A: Only one guest is allowed in the OR, so typically that guest is a spouse or family member -- who will take photos & video with their own recording device that will be edited into your family time capsule.
I've done birthographies® without actual birth footage -- filming the baby wheeled into the hospital room for the first time after birth -- and there are still plenty of extraordinary moments that make your amazing, once-in-a-lifetime event feel complete.
Q: WHAT IF I DON'T LIVE IN LOS ANGELES?
A: Additional travel costs apply to documenting families in homes & hospitals in areas beyond 50 miles of Los Angeles County.
The RETRO . ACTIVE package allows clients to upload all their own video & photo for Delivery Day Films to edit into a birthography®. Includes video interviews (via Zoom or FaceTime or Skype) with expecting parents & family.
Q: HOW ARE THE INTERVIEWS USED IN THE FAMILY TIME CAPSULE?
A: The pre-birth interviews are used to narrate your birthography. In addition, the stories told in the delivery room recounting the birth experience to visiting family & friends are also used to narrate the documentary. From start to finish, it's your story in your own words.
Q: HOW DO PRICING & PAYMENTS WORK?
A: Due to the unpredictable timing of childbirth, all prices include a holding fee to ensure Brandy will be on call 1 week before & 1 week after your due date.
