As my regular blog readers would be aware of, I absolutely adore newborn babies! They are special little miracles that melt my heart. For quite some time i have been very interested in photographing a labour and birth. It is such a sensitive thing to suggest to people so i have yet to go down that path.
When a fellow photographer friend of mine Lana Bell (from Little Posers Photography in Brisbane) recently photographed another photographers birth.. the result was breathtaking.
There is a misconception that birth photography is invasive. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Birth photography is about capturing the small details that you forget in the throws of labour- from a quiet corner of the room. Those moments of first meeting your miracle that can never be repeated. The women that i have come across in my research into birth photography, have all said that their photos are some of their most precious possessions.
When i saw the following slideshow of the birth that Lana photographed.. it epitomized what birth photography is all about. Its about capturing the moments and emotion in the room.
I am currently offering a special deal. The first birth photography booking i receive will be complimentary! You will also receive your digital negatives to keep forever. The only condition to this offer, it that you sign a model release giving me permission to use the photos on my website (only discreet photos will be used for your privacy)
Please spread the word to expecting mothers in Darwin!!
