WHY COMMISSION A BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER?

Having a professional birth photographer photograph your birth story is really advantageous and here’s why:

Storytelling

Birth photography is about storytelling. The story of a birth told through images. Each birth story is unique and special in its own way and a professional birth photographer’s goal is to document YOUR exclusive story in a way that enhances your memories of your baby’s birth.

Don’t Miss a Thing

There is a lot happening during labour and birth and most labouring Moms are inwardly focused during this time. She has a big job to do. The photographs from the birth help the birthing Mom to see the details, the support offered as well as even her own strength and courage. She will most likely not be aware of her surroundings at the time.

Support

When having a baby, you choose a birth partner to be present with you and for you. Having a professional birth photographer there allows your partner to do just that, and not be distracted by taking photos.

Technical Expertise

Births typically take place in an environment with low light. Your professional birth photographer will have the equipment and experience to take beautiful photos in this tricky lighting situation.

Experience

Experience really counts when there are moments that you don’t want to be missed. Your birth photographer will have a good idea of how events during a birth are likely to unfold. This means that they are more ready to get those ‘once in a lifetime’ photographs that are so special.

Beauty

Let’s be honest, birth is a visceral event. A birth photographer works hard to make sure that your photos are a tasteful reflection of the birth with as much modesty as you require.

Healing

A difficult birth can be very traumatic. Seeing what happened from a different and perhaps more objective viewpoint has been very helpful in assisting with healing and acceptance after a traumatic birth experiences.

Time Saving

After giving birth your primary focus is your little one. There is a lot going on – life as you knew it has changed and is busier than ever. It’s a huge benefit having someone else put together your beautiful birth story so that you have a succinct and easy to access memory for you to revisit again and again. With a box of tissues most likely.

WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID

“A lot of people have commented on some of the photos I’ve shared, saying they wish they had have gotten a birth photographer for their births. I’m glad we don’t have this “regret” as we have beautiful images that tell a wonderful story of the nerves, excitement, elation and relief on my daughter’s birth day.”

Tanya Kovarsky

What People say

“Having our birth photographer present to capture the arrival of our beautiful baby boy was such a privilege. It felt very important to me to have a photo of the moment that we welcomed our precious stranger into the world. She captured this beautifully and having a picture that I can look at and that instantly transports me back to the incredible feeling of wonder and joy of that moment is something that I treasure greatly.”

Belinda Hurwitz

What People say

“Our proudest moment yet, so beautifully and modestly portrayed, for us to visit again and again (and again). Our birth photographer was so discreet in the delivery room, and picked up on every emotion felt. Besides every one of our brand new baby, my favourite pictures are those where she captured my husband’s emotions. A relaxed composure at first, then he looked a bit stressed (with wild hair) as the delivery got more intense, and then the utter relief once our little boy was born. I am so grateful that she was there to freeze that perfect moment in time for us.”
