I'm happy to see that you've made it to this page. Maybe you were simply intrigued, or maybe you know exactly what you're here for. Anyway, I'm happy to introduce you to my favorite kind of photography; documenting something so pure and raw, in all its beauty.
Birth photography often elicits bewildered reactions when people first hear about it. But not me, I understood its significance instantly. Bringing a child into this world is an awe-inspiring experience, and I can empathize with how, as a woman, you may not fully grasp it on a conscious level in the moment itself.
Birth photography is about celebrating the power of your feminine body, it's about awareness and love, it's about seeing a life-changing moment from a different perspective afterwards. It's being able to forever revisit the emotions and the atmosphere, and cherishing the magic of this miraculous event during quieter times. It's about being fully present in the moment, both you and your partner. If your partner is responsible for taking photos during your labor, they can't truly experience the whole moment either. It's about fully doing it together.
Everything happens the way you want it. I'll be there when and where you want it. Typically, during birth photography, I capture the entire process surrounding the birth of your baby—from contractions and labor to the birth itself and the first hours of your newborn. However, it can be customized to your preferences. Whether it's in a hospital, at home, or any location of your choosing. You decide what can and cannot be documented. You can request not to photograph certain parts of the medical procedure or specific individuals. An experienced birth photographer knows how to navigate the situation, provide assistance if needed, and avoid disrupting the medical staff.
The practical side
If you're interested, we start with an introductory get-together, which is completely non-committal. Giving birth is such an intimate moment in your life, and ultimately, you want people around you whom you feel completely comfortable with. You'll share your vision with me, and we'll discuss what you do or do not want. After our conversation, you take your time to decide, and if you feel confident in choosing me, we move on to the practical aspects. I'll schedule the due date and will be available 24/7 starting from week 37.
The starting price for birth photography is €950, and the total price will be determined based on your expectations.
