│Community│

{noun}

1a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.

2a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.

 

Did you know that birth photography is growing in popularity here Manitoba? We have an amazing community of photographers in this province who believe that birth is beautiful and worth celebrating, and who are dedicated to documenting and preserving your birthday stories. In my entire (near decade long) career behind the lens, I have never encountered a community of photographers quite like that of birth photographers. It is the most accepting and supportive group of professionals that I have ever been a part of.

I am super proud to work along side the beautiful and talented women I am about to introduce you to. I am honoured to call them my friends. Our community is very important since we often work in tandem either backing each other up, offering advice, sharing knowledge or just offering moral support to one another. Birth is an intense and specialized field of photography and I'm so happy to have connected with them.

With the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers annual image competition rolling out (you can view all the competition entries HERE), I am reminded that even though we are all our own independent businesses and we each have our own styles as individuals, we need each other. We continually support, lift up, and encourage one another to grow in our art, to spread awareness that birth is beautiful and show the world that women are strong... and it's a glorious thing to be part of! I hope that you will all take a moment and show them some love! Check out their amazing work & follow them! You will be glad you did!

Birth Photography in Manitoba is growing and this blog post is helping spread awareness! Birth of a child IS the most important day of your life. There is no do-over or second chance. I have heard so many saying they wish they had know about birth photography or they are sad they did not have their journey captured.I have not heard that anyone has regretted having their birth documented. If you are curious at all about birth photography, check out these wonderful birth photographers and then meet some of them - ask questions and learn more!
