As the big Birthday gets closer and closer (and seriously closer), I’ve found myself drawn to birth photography. Images capturing the anticipation of Baby’s arrival, the emotions of the mom and dad to be, the first few moments with the brand new little baby. I’ve found myself crying over birth photos from people I don’t know.
Birth is very intimate. It’s a time like nothing else in your life. A day when you are bringing new life to this world. A day when your heart is just going to explode with love. And a day that might be one of the hardest, most difficult ones in your life. Very intimate.
But as human beings, we love to capture magical moments. Have them to share. So in comes birth photography. We are planning on having our labor & delivery captured, but I know not everyone wants that. What are your thoughts on birth photography?
