Empowering and transformational...birth is a life changing event.  Shepler Birth-8464Shepler Birth-8464

Birth photography captures all the moments you might not even know happened, let alone remember when it’s all over - the way your partner held your hand and smiled in awe of you or the expression you made when you held your baby for the first time. A birth photographer will make sure that all of these moments are captured so that you don’t have to worry about it and neither do your support people. You will all be free to enjoy the moment fully.

 

Birth photography shows:

  • the strength and determination parents express when they bring their baby into the world.

  • the family dog never leaving your side although you may be oblivious to their presence. 

  • the dignified way your partner is able to balance supporting you and older children.

  • the look of awe in your child’s eyes as they welcome their new sibling into the family. 

  • your body performing like a trained athlete to complete the marathon of childbirth and the unimaginable expression of joy as you hold our baby in your arms for the first time.

What is birth photography?

 

Birth photography captures the event of your baby’s birth just as you likely hired a photographer to capture your wedding day. The birth of your baby is monumental and there will be so many moments, emotions, actions and breakthroughs that you may not be able to comprehend or remember because there is so much happening at once just like a wedding day... except that there will probably be less guests attending!  Shepler Birth-8922Shepler Birth-8922

 

The goal of birth photography is to capture the joy, determination, wonder, admiration, strength and miracle of the birth day. We will tell the story of your baby’s journey into the world in a way that words and memory alone cannot.

 

A typical photographic birth story starts during active labor and includes everything you want it to up until about two hours following the birth. We will photograph every moment that you are comfortable with and stay at your side after the birth to capture the first hours as a family.
