What Is Professional Birth Photography?
The moment when you hear that first cry and finally meet the little soul who you have been waiting for is one of the most transformative events you will ever experience. Whether this is your first or your fourth pregnancy, each birth is a unique experience, worthy of preserving forever. What’s more, your entire birth story, both before and after this defining event, deserves to be documented with professional birth photography.
During such an intense experience, it is natural for the birthing person to go into themselves, blocking out the world around them: The birth team, quietly holding space; the way their partner holds them with just their gaze; the strength of their own body as it moves and sways through waves of power. These are the details of birth I see and capture, leaving the support person free to focus solely on their loved one, knowing each and every detail will be carefully preserved.
As a birth photographer and doula, your comfort and privacy are of utmost importance to me. After booking, we will discuss your birth and photography preferences so that I can create the best possible experience for you. Some clients hire me to capture both the raw physical and emotional aspects of labor, while some prefer a more modest gallery that focuses on emotion and connection to their partner. I do my very best to deliver a gallery that honors your preferences for professional birth photography. Further, I only share images with express permission from my clients and follow the standards set by the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers.
If you are thinking about hiring a birth photographer, I would be happy to talk over phone or video and answer any questions you may have. Reach out today, as space is limited to 2 due dates per month!
