Some of my Favorite Birth Images

Posted on Nov 29, 2017 by in Birth and Fresh Baby, Fresh Baby | 7 comments

I love birth photography a ridiculous amount. It’s hard for me to even put into words! Throughout the past 4 years, I’ve witnessed both joy and heartbreak through this career of mine, and I’m so thankful for every family that chooses to allow me into such a special, personal experience. Birth photography for me is beautiful – those first few seconds after a new babe is placed on their mama’s chest takes my breath away. I get to capture pure emotion, whether it’s a mama breaking down in transition, or a dad overwhelmed as he spies his fresh babe for the first time. It’s vernix-y kisses, and 3am phone calls. Childcare juggling and frantic runs into the hospital while getting my camera out in the hallway. Sometimes, it’s missed babies born in the trauma unit or in cars on the highway. It’s the best thing ever.

  1. Love how you capture the moments that mom and dad are likely too tired to remember afterwards.

  2. Everything! It’s simply beautiful. Moments that we can now look back on for the rest of our lives.

  3. I love birth photography. It is such a special moment that you will never get to do over. It’s nice to have it captured to look back on.

  4. I love everything about it! Capturing how real it is and all the pure emotions in that moment. After seeing pictures like yours, I wish I had had you there when mine were born

  5. It’s so beautiful, even in a cold sterile hospital room. It’s nice to look back on a crazy day.

  6. When my first daughter was born, I wasn’t sure i would want images taken. I thought it would just be too weird. When i had Amber capture my second daughter’s arrival, i was almost more sad because i DIDN’T have photos from the first. I will never have those memories back and with the epidural and benedryl(reaction to the epi) I did not retain many memories unfortunately. I always urfe my doula clients to try for a photographer. Worst case they stay on a disc somewhere and you dont look at them.
