Birth Photography in London
Birth photography in london and the surrounding areas
Although birth is only one day in the life of a woman, it has an imprint on her for the rest of her life.
From the little details, to the big moments. Remember it all with Birth Photography.
Your Birth Story, a captured emotion, a memory otherwise forgotten, a feeling of love, connection and empowerment.
Much like your wedding day, your birth is a once in a lifetime moment. There are no second takes, no redo's.
The beauty of birth photography is that you get to relive one of the most amazing moments of your life & even share your childs birth story with them when they are older. It also helps you to piece together those blury fragments & tiny details you didnt register in the moment.
It can also be utilised as an amazing visual therapeutic healing and empowering tool during post partum. Looking back through your beauutiful birth photo’s will get your Oxytocin flowing and aid in supporting you in your transition to motherhood and bonding with your baby.
“When we birth, we don’t just birth our babies. We birth ourselves, we birth our families and we reshape our lives.” - Dr Sarah Wickham
What about my modesty? If its your modesty your feeling concerned about let me tell you this…
Birth photography is in no way all about the crowning shot, some clients dont want those images at all. I am able to get creative with angles, crops & post editing to protect your modesty. Birth photography is all about emotion. Its about capturing your strength, your focus, your peace, your power, how your partner gazes at you with adoration & admiration, the look on your faces when you meet your baby & all those fresh newborn moments.
We begin with a no obligation informal meeting in person before confirming a booking.
This gives families the opportunity to explore the idea, ask any questions they may have & make clear any requirements they may have. It also gives us both an opportunity to get a feel for each other & see if we are the right fit.
With the way i work its important to establish a connection, a friendship of some sort in advance of the birth. I want my families to feel comfortable with me & therefore comfortable with having me in their birth space. Getting to know you is important to me, because your comfort is important to me & ultimately i will care about the outcome of your birth. Im drawn to this work because i have an inherent belief & trust in birth & our ability as women to birth our babies. I will be an active part of your birth team & included with my photography services will be emotional & practical support to you both where needed.
Please contact me with any questions or to arrange a complimentry in person consultation,
where we can get to know each other over coffee and cake!
I can’t wait to hear from you, let s make some magic!
