Why Hire a Birth Photographer?

Because this is the greatest story you will ever tell.


Because it only lasts for  a moment. One moment that stretches on for the space of a breath that will change your life forever. Birth is one of life's most powerful, empowering, emotional, pivotal experiences. (Trust me, I've done it four times!) So much happens around you while all your energy is focused on pushing. It swirls around you like a whirlwind. And then, they are here. And you hold them for the first time. It's the GREATEST moment of all.

From the minute of their birth, your baby’s looks will change.  So you only get one chance. There are no do-overs, there is no going back. THIS is the moment, the moment you will relive over and over again in your memory, always with amazement and an overwhelming nostalgia.


You take photos of every other great life event: Weddings, Graduations, Vacations, even meals. So why not your birth? It’s definitely a moment worth treasuring. Think of it like a wedding, except without the cake. (Just kidding, you should definitely buy cake. After all, your child only gets one real BIRTH day, and you’ve earned it.)


When you hire a professional birth photographer, you can let your partner be free to support you. You give yourself the chance to look back and see how strong you were. You see the looks on everyone’s faces; looks that only lasted a second, while you pushed with your eyes closed and noticed nothing. You can see the relief on your face when you hold your baby that first time. Without a photo, those moments are lost.

Your Birth Photography Experience


Birth is an unpredictable and unique experience. I know, I’ve been through four myself. I have also photographed others. As your birth photographer I will be on call 24/7 for you. I understand labour is a very vulnerable and also powerful time for you as a woman. During your labour, I will be discreet and unobtrusive, a non-judgmental part of your birth. I will capture each moment as it happens and each detail, without use of flash, without interference - except perhaps to give any assistance or encouragement you desire. Your photos will be modest and tasteful. You can feel safe, knowing that nothing revealing will be used publicly by myself.
