BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY

What is Birth Photography?

Most people are immediately taken aback at the mention of birth photography, but it is not what you think, nor is it what you see on tv. I am not a medical photographer… I am not there to invade your privacy or to make you feel uncomfortable, but rather to document all of the moments and interactions that make up the incredible experience of giving birth and meeting your little one for the first time. Please know that, if you decide to hire me to photograph your birth, you will have total control over the pictures that are taken and I will try my hardest to honour any requests that are made - keeping in mind that birthing is all natural and I will not ask you to change positions or to pose for me at all.

I have birthed three amazing little boys, and I can tell you with absolute assurance, that each birth was completely different from the other. I had births ranging from ‘rainbows and sunshine’ to ‘its the end of the world as we know it’ haha! Having been through labour, I understand that your main focus is not always on all of the different aspects that are coming together to form your birth experience - more often that not, your mind will be focused on one thing and one thing only; get this baby out! Having a birth photographer there to document everything allows your partner to be 100% present in your birthing experience. Allowing me to photograph your birth will enable you to relive the experience through the photograph’s as often as you’d like, taking it all in from a different perspective.

Not into birth photography, but still wanting photo’s at the hospital?

The ‘Bonding with Baby’ Session is for new families who want the first precious moments of their babies life captured without having the entire labour and delivery documented. Even though I am super passionate about Birth Photography and highly recommend it to all families, I understand that it isn’t for everyone and that’s okay too. Whatever your reason for opting out of birth photography, I still want to offer you the chance to get high quality images during this special time of bonding with your baby.

The Bonding Sessions are held within the first 48 hours of your birth – during daylight hours – at the hospital, birth centre, or at home. It is similar in style to birth photography – unposed and natural. My goal is to capture you and your baby totally soaking in the first precious moments (meeting siblings or other family members, first bath, breastfeeding, skin on skin, etc.) while emotions are still high and everything is brand new.
