True that. Silly?... yes...I just have never
heard of medical staff not allowing photos in a delivery room. Perhaps the medical paradigm is different here in Iowa...we have not delivered anywhere else.
Just different hospitals and different medical corporations running them. I'm sure in that delivery room where photos of the staff weren't allowed, that is simply a hospital or corporation that has had photos come back to bite them in the ass in a legal proceding... so now they have a hospital wide policy of no photos of the procedures. I'm sure you're still welcome to photograph your wife and the baby after it is born.
BTW...went to your site; nice work. I think you do not charge enough though. Those would be bargain prices here....unless the prints are extra, then your pricing seems normal.
Hey, thanks. Prints are extra but this is my first season booking so yea, I also think I'm a bargain I'll up the prices every few bookings.
Back to the topic, here is a blog post I wrote for my wife's site on how to bring your camera into the delivery room, and survive -- not technical but how to deal with things. (Not that you need it, being #3, but others in the thread might find it useful.)
