I became a birth photographer after the birth of our 4th child (in 2012). We just barely made it to the hospital and when they finally said I could push, he practically flew out! The whole ordeal was a mere 3 1/2 hours and would have been shorter if my water had broke! My mom was at home watching our other three children and my husband was woozy from all the adrenaline.
No one was there to take pictures! That’s when I knew that I wanted to make sure fellow mamas wouldn’t be sad to have these memories missed.
If you’d like to read more about that and how Birth Photography can aid in postpartum healing I encourage you to read the blog post Birth Photography and Postpartum Recovery
I feel so incredibly privileged to document your baby’s Birth Story. During labor you need to be focusing on breathing down your baby, not worrying about the moments going on around you.
There is a story that is going on around you
The expression on your moms face when you’re breathing through each contraction. Your birth support team who is helping you relax and whispering soothing, encouraging words to you. The strength and relief that comes during push time. The concern, the encouragement, the relief and the tears of joy! That moment you set your eyes on your baby for the first time! The look of awe and respect your husband holds on his face that says “Wow, my wife is amazing!”
“Oh we are all in tears!!! Thanks so much for perfectly capturing one of the most important days of our lives.” -TB
