Just like your wedding day, the day you give birth is a whirlwind and before you know it it’s over and you’re like wait what just happened? The day you get married and the day you have your child/children are the most important days of your entire life, so many beautiful and intimate moments happen and you miss some of it because there’s so much going on.
Between the pain, excitement, family and friends visiting and nurses/doctors coming in and out of your room, the whole birth experience can become very hazy and hard to recall.
By having me in your birthing space, this will allow your husband and any family to provide you with their full support, while I capture the moments. My goal is to tell your birth story through images and to share with you moments you may have not even know happened. I wish to capture not just the expression and emotion on your face, but those surrounding you and all of those tiny details that are so often lost in the moment.
The birth story will allow you to relive the raw, vulnerable and beautiful emotions of the day you became parents. It’s pretty much guaranteed you’ll take thousands of photographs on your phone of your bump and newborn, and this is because you can! In the birth space, you’re a little preoccupied, to say the least, which is why having these images are so important.
“Birthing is the most profound initiation to spirituality a woman can have.”
– Robin Lim
I believe everyone deserves to have the opportunity to have memories captured to relive forever.
