Why photograph your birth?
If you’re like me, you don’t really remember the birth of your first baby. My daughter, Severn, decided to enter the world through a beautiful belly birth (c-section). This meant that her birth happened rather quickly and I didn’t have time to process everything that was happening.
I didn’t see my husband in the lead up to her arrival until he entered the operating room. I was also on a bed that I couldn’t move from so I didn’t really see my husband cut her umbilical cord, or his expression when he first laid eyes on her. It wasn’t until the medications wore off a couple of hours later, that I could be fully present in the moment after my baby was born. I’m so thankful to have photographs of my baby’s birth so that I can reflect and piece together the most incredible moment of my life.
I want to photograph your birth story. I want to document every moment from your labour, your strength, and your super powers; to capturing you and your loved one’s emotions as your special baby enters into the world and takes a first breath. I want to document the amazing bond that happens between mama and babe during Golden Hour. It would be an incredible gift to yourself.
I’m an award-winning professional photographer, with a diploma in Digital Photography and Imaging from Muskoka who is passionate about photographing your birth story. I want to tell the unique journey of your child’s entrance into this world.
