Sure, your partner could take pictures on their cell phone...
OR you could leave that up to me. Allow yourself and your entire birth team to be engrossed in the moment while I capture it.
You don't get the raw emotion of it all with a selfie. And trust me, you DO want those emotional shots. You want to be able to look back and remember every little detail of this day.
"Kaylin was SO amazing. Not only is she an extremely gentle and caring person but she managed to capture this experience while hardly even making herself known in the room. I love these photos and I’m so glad I’ll have them forever to remember."
Whenever you see a pregnant person, what is the first word that comes to your mind?
Mine is GODDESS. If you don't think GODDESS when you look in the mirror, then you need a maternity portrait session.
"If a woman doesn't look like a goddess during birth, then someone isn't treating her right. "
-Ina May Gaskin
I told you I was weird, friend.
But if you're into weird stuff too and you believe in honoring the BEAUTIFUL organ that facilitated LIFE between you and your baby...
then this is for YOU.
"I never would have thought that a picture of my placenta would make me so emotional. But it was so beautiful and so beautifully done. It just made my heart expand to think that was (his) life before life outside of the womb.
Literally the whole birthing and pregnancy experience was way more beautiful than I imagined. Hard as fuck, but definitely beautiful and worth it."
