What is Birth Photography?
No, it's not just me taking photographs of your private area. First and foremost, it’s art. Your photographs will be captured in a documentary or candid style, different from your usual family portraits. Your images will be truthful, artistic, emotional, story-telling images. They can be as graphic as you wish. (Crowning photographs are only captured upon request of the client)
Why Hire a Birth Photographer
*No two births are the same. Your baby will never be this little ever again. The little baby things will be gone in the blink of an eye. Photos, however, will last forever. Especially our fine art archival prints.
*There are some incredible, precious moments that occur during births. You will be so focused on the task at hand, you might not even realize they happen. Birth photography makes those fleeting moments unforgettable.
*Birth stories are as much about you as they are your baby, if not more. This is the story of how you created and gave life. It is the story of your strength and empowerment. You will never be the same again because of it.
*Your partner has a job to do, too. They are there to support you and be in the moment just as much as you. With birth photography, your partner doesn't have to miss out on the experience to stop and take a picture. Instead, the can be in the story they are 100% part of.
*Occasionally, mother nature has other plans for your birth, such as premature delivery or emergency C-section. Often there is no time to prepare your bag much less a camera. With a birth photographer on call you won't miss anything.
*Shooting in dark rooms and poor lighting is hard. It takes special gear, equipment, and professional knowledge that requires a large investment of both time and money. With the best gear for the job and years of education and practice, we ensure your photographs are professional and tell a great story.
*When your child learns to ride a bike, starts Kindergarten, graduates high school, or has a baby of their own, you'll be looking back. It will be that bittersweet realization of how fast time really does go by. With your birth story you will be able to return to the first day looking through your birth album, and you will smile because you have all the memories right there in your hands.
*If you thought your wedding was filled with emotions you haven't seen anything yet! There are so many wonderful emotions that make this experience the best of your life, not to mention they make for great photos!
I promise you. You won't regret it. Because nothing can compare to that moment when you and your baby meet for the first time...when two become three... when a family is born.
Maybe you don't want the full birth photographed and maybe you want more. Choose your perfect story and enjoy your greatest love story forever!
