starting something new: birth stories

baby m

Birth photography is something I've been interested in for some time and a friend has invited me to photograph the birth of her second child next month! In the meantime, I am preparing. Getting inspired by photographers whose work I truly admire. (Warning: The following links will bring you to tears!) Click HERE to view a slideshow by Josh Solar (his first experience with birth photography) and HERE for a second slideshow by the same photographer. Pinkle Toes Photography is my all-time favorite, click HERE to view Michele's beautiful work.

What an honor and a beautiful gift you are giving these families! I can connect u with a website to post your contact info on if u r interested undoing homebirths. They are soooo different from hospital births in so many ways. I am so bummed that Gman was 3 weeks early and I hadn't finished our conversation abou you photographing his birth. I am thrilled though that I had friends taking so many pics! I am sure u are going to be awesome!!!!
