I met Del and Rob for their candid family photography session about two weeks before Nia arrived. They had wanted some images of their family of four, just before they became a family of five. Naturally, I asked whether they were interested in birth photography. They felt it would be something their family would value.
Birth photography is particularly special. It’s the first time you meet the tiny human you created. The first time you see and smell and hear and hold this person you already know so intimately. The only time they will be this tiny—from this second they begin literally blossoming before you. There is nothing more beautiful, more natural or more meaningful. This is the start of their life story.
If you’re thinking about whether to invest in birth photography, I hope these images can help convince you. This is a gift to your child. The moment their life begins as their own, independent selves. Where they can look back and see what their parent(s) felt in the moments of their arrival, when their entire world changed forever. When I was younger I would sit for hours with the photos my dad took just after I was born. It was fascinating to see what I looked like. To see the excitement on my dad’s face. The little bit of worry on my mom’s face. Curiosity on my brother’s face. But I thought there was something missing. I wanted to know what the experience was like!
Let’s talk about what your birth photography experience may feel like.
We will meet over tea or coffee and talk about your baby’s arrival. We will also go over what you hope the experience will be like. I’d like to meet everyone on your birth team. I don’t want to be a stranger on the day your little one enters the world. You can email me via my website contact page.
