what is birth photography?

Most people are immediately taken aback at the mention of birth photography, but it is not what you think or see on TV. We are not medical photographers. We are 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. Please know that you will have total control over the pictures that are taken and we honor any and all photo requests that are made.

Even though we have had totally different birth experiences, we both have beautiful photos from our births that we will cherish forever. Having been through labor, we understand that the mother’s primary focus is not always on all of the different aspects that are coming together to form her birth experience – more often than not, her mind is focused on one thing only: get this baby out! Having a birth photographer there to document everything allows the mother to relive the experience through the photographs and often times have a totally different perspective on what happened that day.
