This is a question I get all the time. Like ALL the time. When I tell people what my photography passion and focus is, they ask why on earth would people want photos of that?? Just to set the record straight, "that" is how we all came into this world. It's where our stories begin. And it is a pretty spectacular story.
Birth photography is telling the story of your baby's birth day, with beautiful images. The story that surrounds the day you become a parent, or parent again. It's not just images of your baby emerging into this world. It's about all the love and support that surrounds a labouring woman. It's about the birth of a family. It's about siblings meeting for the first time and capturing details that may be forgotten soon after. There is so much more to a birth story than crowning images (although I think those are great too, I get that they're not for everyone!)
As a mother of 2, I can tell you with the utmost certainty that the memories of your journey into parenthood will fade quickly. The only reason I feel as though I remember the births of my sons is because I can see and hold the images from that day any time I want to. I can look back and see how much my husband, mother and midwives supported me. I can see when my babies took their first breaths. The first time I touched them. The first time they saw me. By inviting me into your birth space, I can do this for you too... I can promise you won't regret it.
I am currently offering promotional pricing on all storytelling sessions, including birth stories. If you would like to chat about capturing your journey into parenthood, I would love to hear from you! You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Birth spaces are very important to me, and I like potential clients to meet with me in person. You need to know that I am a good fit for you. You need to be comfortable having me in your birthing space. I would love to take you for tea/coffee!
Cheers friends! Happy Friday :)
