Wondering if anyone had a professional come in and do photos or a video of this time? Were you happy with what you got?

I did photograpby for several years. Not a lot of extra time now. But that woud be a lot of fun to capture. The only downside is how much to charge. if you wanted to capture from early labor through delivery, you could be looking at 8-24 hrs.

I've wanted to. I have a photographer friend that I asked about it last pregnancy but we ended up not using her because we just couldn't afford it. This time a friend loaned me his good camera and I have a couple friends and two of my daughters volunteer to take photos. 

I would wait until active labor to ask the photographer to come, but then I have really long labors. Transition for me is usually 3 hrs or more.
