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 journey, 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 in through waves. And later, the look of triumph on the birthing person’s face, the first grasp of a tiny water-logged hand, the first latch and feeding. These are the details of birth I see and capture, leaving the support person free to focus solely on their loved one, knowing each an every detail will be carefully preserved.
