Childbirth is an amazing process. But unless you’ve witnessed or experienced it, you might not realize just how powerful the moment can be. Birth photographs exist to illustrate the process and demonstrate the fact that there is no single best way for a woman to give birth.
Birth photography is a highly specialized field and the choice to have the experience documented is an intensely personal decision. It involves the birth process, environment, the parents and those in attendance.
Birth photography captures the magic of creating a new life, the tears of delight, and the joy of family. Photographers that specialize in the subject utilize their work to depict the birthing process.
