This sweet mama has given me permission to show some photos from her birth, while keeping her identity private. I’m glad I get to show just a few photos. I just love birth stories. They are just so special, and it’s so amazing to be able to participate in such a sacred event. Photographing Birth stories isn’t about the medical side of what happens in birth, it is the emotional side. It’s mom meeting baby for the first time. It’s dad holding baby for the first time. It’s the way he supported you and helped you while you labored. It’s capturing the beginning of a new family. It’s so emotional, and every mom I’ve done a birth story for has never regretted it. It truly is just so special. Plus, Dad gets to put the camera DOWN and be 100% present and there for you and baby, not worried about getting good photos to remember the birth by. I especially like that part.
