Birth Photography is a form of photography people are starting to get more knowledge about and has become one of my highly passionate types of photography.
I always get a second look when people hear that I do Birth Photography. “Wait, you’re actually in there during…” Haha Yes, I am. And it’s the most INCREDIBLE experience you could ever imagine! I have one son and with him I wasn’t able to experience a natural birth. I went all the way to 10 centimeters (medicated) and ended up having an emergency c-section. All I remember was being so scared. I had no idea what was going on behind the curtain and at that time I didn’t care to either. Oh! How things have changed! My experience in labor is primarily the reason I do birth photography. The most life changing event in your life will fade from your memory quicker than you will ever imagine. All I remember was the fear rushing through my body the moment the doctor told me we needed to prepare for an emergency c-section. I have no clue who my nurses were, what my room looked like, what my family’s reactions were… I didn’t even know who was there besides my family! As a birth photographer and a mother who understands the importance of this day, I am fully aware of capturing the moments that you will cherish for eternity. You will forever be able to go back and relive the moments your life changed for the better.
