After delivering my first two daughters, I wished I had documentation of their birth stories. On a very personal level, their births were some of the greatest days of my life and each a story of struggle, love, and triumph. I felt treasured and cared for in the arms of my husband as we worked together to bring our baby daughters in the world, and I wanted to see it.
Birth photography offers you the gift of seeing the story unfold – the tender moments of laboring with your partner, priceless expressions caught at delivery, first interactions as a new family. The birth of your baby, no matter how they enter the world, is one of the most unforgettable experiences a person can have. Home births, hospital births, medicated or not, Cesarean or VBAC – birth is a miracle worth documenting.
I document births because I love it. Since the birth of my first daughter, I’ve gained a passion for birth and am honored to participate as part of the birthing team. I am trained in the Bradley method of childbirth and completed all of the required reading for doula certification. The birthing room is a natural place for me. I will ensure your experience of having a birth photographer is encouraging and helpful as you and your birth team work hard to deliver your baby.
From the mouths of moms:
Having birth pictures taken turned out to be such a blessing. I’m able to relive the precious moments of meeting my son every day. And since it all happens too quickly, I know without those pictures it would only be little memories here and there that I would have with me. – Claudia
I loved having a birth photographer because giving birth was the most memorable and powerful experience in our lives. With a professional photographer, every moment, kiss, breath, and emotion is preserved in each and every photo. She captured moments I wouldn’t ever be able to remember. It makes the whole experience of labor and birth that much more magical. – Ashley
It’s about the moments! Birth is such an honest experience & everything that I said & did as a laboring woman was instinctual & unplanned. These moments cannot be staged. Seeing pictures of my husband holding my hand, massaging my back & then smiling at our new little girl makes me fall in love over & over again. Annie caught the moments & I will forever have the memories of how are family grew that day. – Renee
