Birth Photography
Talk about a once in a lifetime experience!
Every decision in your life brings you to this place, this day, this time...
Add some baby dust, luck, magic, nine months' time...
all those moments come together...
And then there's this gorgeous baby that's all yours forever and always!

I can go on and on about how much I LOVE birth photography,
but you don't need to hear it from me.

Hear it from her.
A mother I was fortunate enough to work with
who can tell you in her own words
why YOU will love birth photography as much as I do.

1. What made you first consider birth photography?
We initially were looking for maternity pictures to be taken to document our last pregnancy. When I found the information on birth photography, I was very excited and nervous. I was not sure what to expect and what exactly birth photography was.

2. Did you have any hesitation about including a photographer at such an intimate moment in your life?
I NEVER had any hesitation about you being there. It is such an intimate moment in our lives, and for it to be captured from your perspective is amazing!

3. What finally made you decide this was a good idea for you to partake in?
I really wanted to have pictures to document the entire process. I wanted so badly to have photos so that I could look back and relive every single detail possible! When I saw your first birth photography, slideshow, I was in tears and knew that I made the right decision! I could not wait for you to be there for our big day!

4. What was the best part of the birth photography experience?
During the labor/birthing process, there is so much going on. It's so difficult to focus on everything happening around you. During it all, I so desperately wanted to know if we were having a boy or girl that everything else faded into the background. With the birth photography, I was able to see the special moments that you captured...the photos have such emotion and take me back into the moment! I am so very grateful to you, Chelse, for all these photos that our family will cherish for a lifetime!!

5. How did your spouse, family, and friends respond to the photos?
My family and friends were truly AMAZED by the birth photos! When the slideshow was viewed, there was not a dry eye in the house. It was such a beautiful experience, and the way it was captured was truly amazing! The family that could not be present at the hospital still felt as if they were there during the entire birthing process just by looking at the photos.

6. What will you tell your child, when she is old enough to understand, about these photos?
When she gets older, I cannot wait to show her the photos of her first appearance entering the world! It is powerful to see her first breath, her tiny, little features, and the miracle of life that goes with it. I wish I had documented all my girls this way!

7. Which is your favorite photo from your session and why?
This is a tough question! I LOVE all of them so much. If I had to choose just one, it would be the one of us with Karleigh just minutes after birth. It captures that magical family moment of new life and the love that we have for her and each other.
