Birth Photography

Births are one of those moments in life that change everything. One minute there are two of you the next there are three. Birth Photography captures all the emotions that are in the room when the baby is about to arrive to the moment he/she is there and even to the next day.

I’ve had mixed reactions from people when I tell them I’m a birth photographer. Some think it’s really cool and are probably familiar with the trend and some, you can see it on their face, are a bit in shock. But I tell them how classy and emotional the experience is. Note: I do not take anything that would make anyone uncomfortable looking at the pictures, which means I do not show anything inappropriate (still trying to find better wording but I hope you get what I mean.)

Moms usually message me about their interest in Birth Photography months or weeks before the due date. I am usually “on call” the week of so I will have my equipment near me at all times and my phone on ring just in case they call me. 

I’ve never missed a birth (knock on wood) and I ask them to text me when they are headed to the hospital and when she is around 6cm. 

I suggest letting the physician and nurses know ahead of time that you will be having a photographer present. Most will have no problem with it. I usually introduce myself and tell them to push me out of the way if they need to.

I understand that it can take minutes to hours until the baby comes but I am 100% in it until we see their cute little faces and even a while after. Getting the emotion and every little detail of how the room looks is my #1 goal.

 I usually will do another little session with the family either hours later or the next day. I want Mom to recover a bit and for the baby to have some time to get cleaned up.
