Birth Photography...Where It Started to Where It Is Now

September 18, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Birth Photography...one of my passions. I fell in love 3 years ago as I photographed my own baby boy shortly after birth. The full story is here, for anyone interested (long and wordy, think hormonal post partum woman), but ever since then I've known this is what I've wanted to do. It has taken time to learn how to balance life, family, and 2 part time jobs. I've spent 3 years becoming more educated, studying, and photographing births as well as being a nurse on the 4th floor at ECM (women's health, post partum) for 5 years, and 6 total years in business behind the camera. I've also become a member of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers. The IAPBP is and continues to be a great resource for education, community, and ideas.  My equipment has vastly improved from these moments right here as well. I'm so proud of what I was able to get here but improved equipment has helped the images even more. I bring 3 professional Canon cameras (d-series, and ds-series) with top of the line Canon L-lenses. I shoot 2 cameras, use the 3rd as a backup. I am so comfortable now photographing in the delivery room. Point...after lots of prayer, starting at the beginning of October, I will no long function as a nurse at ECM but will be completely focusing on photography. The goal is focusing on birth photography however I will still continue to photograph my usual portraits (lifestyle) that I've offered for years and sell local landscape images at Reclaimed Spirit in downtown Florence. I am so excited to be offering this service full time. Honestly, even though I love these images I captured of my own birth, I wish I would have had a photographer in the room to get the special moments of the actual birth and moments with my husband and I. I have no real regrets though. Soooooo here's a tribute to where it all began, feel free to browse the blog, facebook, and my website for images of where it is now...and I can't wait to see what all the future holds. Thank you, as always, to those who allow me into the delivery room to capture the beautiful miracle of life :) :) :)
