Having been blessed with 8 pregnancies, 7 births, and 8 babies (figure that one out!) I think it’s natural that childbirth would hold a special place in my heart.
My last baby was born unexpectedly at 35 weeks. I had planned to have a friend at the hospital taking pictures of our new baby as she was born. Pictures of Dad holding his new baby for the first time… Photos of all the kids with their newest sibling… Even some of myself- holding the baby instead of the camera!
Instead, we were rushed in for a surprise c-section. The kids weren’t there. My friend wasn’t there. I didn’t even have my camera with me. All we ended up with were some pictures on my husband’s cell phone.
I know that in my situation, there probably wasn’t much that could have been done- as it was all so unexpected, and happened so quickly.
I know I am not the only one with this experience.
Would you love to have photographs that capture the birth experience as it happens?
The precious little once-in-a-lifetime details…
Those first few magical moments between mom and baby…
How about the bond between Mom and Dad…
Whether it be in the hospital, or in your home- I would love to document those moments for you.
Here is a slideshow that a group of photographers put out sharing their images from Birth Sessions.
If you book a Birth Session during the month of January, I will be offering them at the same rate as a normal session – $150
This is a HUGE savings!
So if you are pregnant and looking to have your birth captured in a way that is unique to your family- call me!
Maybe you know someone who is pregnant and you could pass along this link!
I’m looking forward to a year full of new experiences, new people, and new work!
