What is Birth Photography?

Birth photography documents the birth of your baby as it unfolds. No posed photos. No interruptions of your birth. No flash. Just you focusing on bringing your baby into this world with the love and support of whomever you've invited to be there. And your birth photographer in the background, making sure that all of the emotions - trials and tribulations - are captured for you to cherish in the years to come.

What does Birth Photography look like?

Your birth will be presented in a photo-journalistic style from active labor through the moment that you meet your newborn, and for an hour or two beyond as baby is weighed and measured and meets his or her family. Birth photography captures the little details that would otherwise become a blur as you direct your focus on delivery. Some of these details include hand-holding, back massage, a birth assistant waiting respectfully out of the way, a nervous birth partner, excited first-time-grandparent-to-be, the look on your face and your partner's face as you first see, hold, and inhale your new babe.

Note: Whether you are comfortable with photos of the actual moment of birth is a personal decision that will always be respected. Intimate photos will never be posted online, except at your request.
