Congratulations on your pregnancy! If you’re thinking about having your birth story documented, I would love to be the one to capture this incredible experience for you.
It is a very personal decision to hire a birth photographer but I truly believe there is so much value in doing so for these reasons ::
// To have a once-in-a-lifetime experience documented forever. Your child is only born once.
// So you and your birth partner can be completely present during your birth experience while letting someone else focus on capturing your unique story.
// To have candid, raw and emotional moments you didn’t know existed, captured for you to see afterwards.
// To have images to show your child later on. How amazing would it be to be able to show them the memories from the day they were born?
// Because birth should be celebrated … because it’s amazing and empowering.
You are a huge part of your child’s birth story and having a birth photographer there to capture the experience means you will actually be in the photos! Birth photography also proves how capable, brave and strong women are. It is so incredibly empowering to look back and see yourself in labour and see how truly amazing your body is.
