Why Birth Photography?
I remember the first time I laid eyes on my baby, well at least I thought I did. Then my husband retold that story at a dinner with friends and included a whole lot of detail. Detail that I seemed to have forgotten.
You see our bodies are these amazing things. They work, open and transform to bring a life into the world. They do this by breaking us down in a process that often involves some pain, fear and a lot of endurance, power and perseverance. We are broken down to be rebuilt in a new way. To be rebuilt as the perfect mother to a tiny human that will rely on us for years to come. You see we are designed to forget, to forget the breaking down. As days go by the memories fade often to make way for new memories, ones that involve you and your little one. But in these faded memories are some of the most precious moments of your life, moments where world truly changed forever.
This is what drives me to birth photography, the desire to capture these life changing hours, minutes and seconds. Because once its gone, its gone forever.
So don't let them fade, keep them safe.
Capture this time and SHOW the pictures to your sons and daughters.
Snuggle up in bed and show them the story of the day they were born, picture by picture. Tell them how you felt, what you were scared of, what excited you, what got you through and how you managed that one last big push that ultimately resulted in them.
