Cleveland Birth Photographer

Your labor, documented. Your birth, remembered. Your strength, celebrated.

Documenting your birth story allows you to relive one of the most important days of your life, forever. It means you get to remember every special detail of your baby's birth day. It's the most beautiful way to honor your strength, your courage, your journey to becoming a mother. 

"There is power that comes to women when they give birth. They don’t ask for it, it simply invades them."

— Sheryl Feldman





Birth photography packages begin at $1,725 and are customizable to serve you and your family best. 

All packages includes an in-person or virtual consultation prior to your birth, on-call time from 38 weeks until you deliver, coverage from active labor through two hours after you deliver, and a private online gallery with your cherished photos. Video add-ons are available for an additional fee. 

In an effort to make birth photography as accessible as possible, I'm happy to offer payment plans. The standard plan requires a $550 non-refundable retainer at booking, with the remaining balance split into two additional payments. Payment plans may also be customized. 


Frequently Asked Questions

Will we meet before the birth?

Birth is an intimate and personal experience, and I want you to feel as comfortable as possible with my presence. If that means meeting in person or on a Zoom call, I am happy to do that! If you’d prefer to communicate via email, text message or phone, I can do that, too. Everyone has different preferences, so I’m flexible based on what’s most comfortable for you. 

When should I book you?

As early as possible! I can only accept a limited number of births per year, and typically only work with one or two families per month, so I encourage you to contact me as soon as you know you're expecting.


Ideally, I will arrive during your active labor, when you’re between 6 to 7 centimeters dilated. Birth is unpredictable, so we have to do our best to determine the right time for me to join you based on a variety of indicators, including how close your contractions are, and how difficult they are for you to manage, dilation, effacement.


Again, birth is unpredictable. In the rare occurrence that I miss your birth due to illness or emergency on my end, and a backup is not available, you have the option for a refund, or a future session(s). If I miss your birth because your labor was super fast, I will still come to your place of birth and document as much as possible. If it’s still too little to build a full gallery, I’m happy to offer a Fresh 48 or lifestyle newborn session for a day soon after baby arrives.

Mackenzie is a gem of a person & a truly magical photographer. She took the most beautiful photos of my family, including our newborn and our crazy two-year-old son who wouldn’t stop trying to hug her. She is kind, creative, and incredibly easy to work with.


We had such a wonderful experience with Mackenzie. She was patient and flexible with our toddler, and made it a priority to get a variety of shots. Our toddler loved her! Can’t recommend her enough.


Mackenzie did our newborn pictures and I was blown away by the entire experience as well as the pictures. I can’t recommend her enough, and we can’t wait to use her in the future!

I can't recommend Mackenzie highly enough. I can only imagine that our family photo shoot was challenging, with a baby who did not want to smile, a dog who did not want to sit still, and crazy humidity. Mackenzie somehow managed to take a fantastic set of photos, and was so easy and pleasant to work with.


My toddler felt so at ease. She was a natural at capturing the perfect shots of him and my newborn. I felt extremely comfortable with her in my home and can not wait to have her back for more. We were absolutely in love with our gallery and so impressed with her talent! 10/10 would recommend.
