Something I hear often from new parents: “I barely remember my birth!” The foggy memory of a woman’s birthing time occurs because of the birth hormones flowing through her veins. High levels of oxytocin and beta endorphins provide pain relieving, time distorting and calming effects, but also make it hard to recall the details of the day. This is where birth photography comes in! Documenting your birth through timeless photography is such a powerful way to memorialize this life changing event so you can take those memories (and jog a few others) for years to come. New parents tell me that they look through their birth pictures over and over again, savoring every detail, with tears streaming down their faces.
Depending on the length of the birth I usually end up with 50 – 100 pictures to document every detail of the day. Each photo is edited, cropped and customized. Because birth can be messy I provide every picture in both color and black and white. In an effort to really capture your day, births are shot in a photo journalistic style. I would love to be part of your birth team as a doula, photographer, or both!
