Oh how I love birth photography! I’m still very new to this genre but it has stolen my heart and I so look forward to doing more and more in this new year!
I just adore this mama. Karaina is herself a doula and very in tune with the birthing process. This was her second babe and she very much wanted to capture the experience visually. I think most moms – myself included! often don’t think about or don’t know that birth photography is a ‘thing’! We are so nervous about the whole birth thing that we assume the last thing we will want is someone clicking away in the background distracting us or even worse, getting some raunchy and traumatizing images…
But I assure you – that is not what birth photography is about. This is about capturing the emotion. And that’s why I love it so much. There aren’t a whole lot of moments more powerful than being present for the arrival of a new little one. Moms are amazing. Babies are amazing – and the process of bringing new babies into the world, well… the images speak for themselves.
A huge congrats to this beautiful and amazing family, and for their willingness to let me share their images!
