The moment you welcome your little one to the world is one of the most life changing moments you will ever live. There is nothing more beautiful than welcoming a baby to the world!
Capturing such a pivotal moment in your life gives you the opportunity to relive it, to share it with the ones you love who are unable to attend, it allows you to see the moments you may not have seen or noticed as you were busy bringing your baby earth-side. Having such moments documented gives you a chance to see how your partner reacted, the way your baby looked at you whilst discovering the face that goes with the beating heart it heard for close to 9 months, they way you all bonded...so many details that just fly by in the moment! I love the details, the glances, the beauty of each instant. I am here to give you the gift of remembering the most incredible event no matter how or where you decide to bring your baby to the world...
Unfortunately, most of it is a blur for most Mothers - the moment is so intense whether it is a "natural" or C-section. Having beautiful images can capture the moments you wish to remember or even discover the moments you missed as you were focused on getting Bébé safely into your arms.
how it works
If you wish to get your birth captured, contact me so we can meet for tea + a chat. You can give me some insight on the type of Birth you are envisioning, ask me all the questions you want or express any concerns. This is a moment for you to get to know me, and me you. Please also contact your Obstetrician to make sure she/he will allow a Birth Photographer in the room. Then if you decide that I am the best fit for you we will sign a contract and from the moment you are at 38 weeks onwards I will be On Call 24/7! Once you are in labor (or even think you are!) we will be in contact so I can head out to you on time! There are many logistic questions you may have - some may be covered in my FAQ.
What about C-sections?
Capturing a belly birth can be just as beautiful and powerful as any other! The ladies at Birth Becomes Her have a blog post that sums it up better than no other: www.birthbecomesher.com
CHOOSING THE RIGHT PERSON
The moment your Bébé comes to the world is the most intimate moment. You need to feel comfortable with each and every person who comes to the room. You choose your Doctor, the Midwife, the Doula in some cases. The Birth photographer must also be "chosen". It is very important you meet with me before committing as you do want to make sure I make you comfortable (I will! :)
