Lately I’ve thought a lot about the very first birth I ever photographed. I can’t believe it’s been more than two years now. This birth changed so much for me, both in terms of where I am as a photographer, and where I am as a mother. This beautiful event was what made me want to be a birth photographer, and it also gave me the courage to start asking whether I could have a homebirth myself. At the end of last year, we welcomed our beautiful daughter, Claire, who was born at home. And at the beginning of this year (2013), I quit my “day job” and began accepting clients for birth photography. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
And this birth… this birth was the start of it all.
