Couldn't My Family or Partner Take Some Photos?
Similar to the work of a wedding photographer, a birth photographer understands that there are fleeting moments that are meant to be captured. Relying on friends or family to anticipate these moments does not give them the chance to enjoy the moments while they are happening. Your family or partner will be wrapped up in the intensity of the birth process and photos become an afterthought. A birth photographer has equipment to manage various lighting, anticipates upcoming moments, and is prepared to get the shot, all while your support team is paying attention to you and your new baby. There are only a few times in your life that you will remember forever, and it is the photographers job to capture the process, strength, struggle, and emotion that tells the story of becoming a mother.
