About Us

The arrival of a new baby is one of the most memorable moments in a couple’s life! It’s not only the birth of a baby, it’s also the birth of a family. Having a professional birth photographer capture your birth ensures that the day is recorded for both you and your new child to look back on and treasure for many years to come.

Birth Photography is a form of family documentary photography that beautifully tells the story of a couple’s journey into parenthood and their first moments together as a new family. In the same way that a wedding photographer captures a couple’s wedding day, from the preparations, to the big moment (the vows) and their first hours as a newly married couple, a birth photographer captures a couple’s birth day, from the preparation (labour), to the big moment (birth) and your first moments as a new family.

There is a lot of misconception around what birth photographers actually photograph and “Why would you want photos of THAT?” is a commonly asked question. However, a professional birth photographer beautifully documents the journey in such a way that the resulting images not only become treasured memories but leaves the parents feeling wonderful about their baby’s birth day, and the mother–her birth experience.

Elements of the day that a birth photographer captures include the details and emotions that you experience throughout your birth journey, from the birth environment (hospital, birth center or home), your labour journey, birth support and baby’s arrival through to all your ‘firsts’ (first look, cuddle, kiss, feed, cry), your new baby’s features, weights and measurements.

Not having a professional birth photographer take your photographs….will be your only regret.

Make sure you always choose an Accredited Professional Photographer.
