I'm so excited that you have found my birth photography blog. This is a new and exciting venture for me and I am looking forward to working with you!
Birth photography is a once in a lifetime experience that is valued as much as wedding photography. You only have one opportunity to document the journey leading up to your child's birth, this is it.
I have two sons, both born quickly, naturally and prematurely. With my first son, I don't have any photographs documenting his journey into the world, and because he was whisked away to the NICU so quickly, I don't have any photographs from his first moments of life. This is something I have regretted deeply. When I found out I was pregnant again, hiring a birth photographer was one of the first things I did. I realized how important it was to me to have those intimate moments documented both for sharing with family and friends, as well as looking back on and processing exactly what happened.
When my second child was also born early, it was really difficult for me to accept. Having his birth documented made it much easier. I was able to look back on the images and really know that even though I was emotionally strained, I was still strong for him. The photographs from my second child's birth are one of my most treasured possessions and I guarantee you will feel the same way about your birth photographs.
I would love to meet you and chat about what you're looking for in a birth photographer as well talk about how I fit into your birth team. Please feel free to contact me today for more information. I am so excited to work with you during this amazing time!
