Why hiring a birth photographer is so important| Love at First SIght Photography & Doula Services

Why hiring a birth photographer is so important

I get asked this question all the time on why would I have someone in my labor room I don't know documenting my child being born?
My answer is always WHY WOULDN'T YOU?!?! The birth of your child is one of the most momentous and emotional occasions in your life. You take photos at your child's birthday every year, why on earth would you not want to document his/her "birth" day.

The first breath, touch, cry, hug, kiss, umbilical cord, placenta that nurtured your child. These are just some of the moments that are lost in the mist of giving birth. The last thing on your significant others or support persons mind is, I better have the camera ready and snap all these first! They want to experience it along with you, not see it through the lens of a camera. 

These first moments fade away pretty quickly after birth. With your hormones, adrenaline and all the excitement, a cloud fogs these moments BUT with a professionally birth photographer present documenting all these first gives you the opportunity to re live all these precious moments over and over again.  

Most don't bat an eye when it comes to maternity or newborn sessions. Why would you not want a professional documenting the raw moments of YOUR baby entering the world and the moments that lead up to the event. 

Birthing is one of the most important journeys in life, and to have that story captured in everlasting portraits beginning to end is something very special and cherishable.


You may regret not hiring a birth photographer but I promise you will never regret hiring one.
