Few things in life compare to witnessing a child being born. If I could photograph only one thing for the rest of my life, it would be births. I wish birth photography was a ‘thing’ when my son was born and wish so much we would have had his entrance to the world documented. Instead, I get to see lots of other tiny humans make their entrance to this world.
If you’ve been considering having the birth of your child photographed, do it! There are so many little moments throughout the delivery of your baby that I make sure to capture: the moment you hold your son or daughter the first time, the up close photos of tiny little fingers and toes…all those moments that you want to remember forever.
This sweet little nugget of goodness was born last year and I’ve known his mamma since first grade. By the way, how cool is it that I get to be in the delivery room with one of my oldest friends while her son is being born? Answer: pretty darn cool! We arrived at The Birthplace at Dupont Hospital bright and early. Allison knew ahead of time she would be having a C-Section. For those of you wondering, yes, I can be in the operating room during the delivery with the permission of the doctor and each one has their preference. If you know for sure you’ll be having a C-section and it’s important for you to have the birth photographed, I encourage you to talk with you doctor as soon as possible. Most often during the delivery, the main restriction in photographing is we can’t take pictures of the physical cutting of the skin, once the cutting is done, and the baby is being brought out of the uterus, I can click away!
