birth and the first hours
Let’s capture them, the life-changing moments around the arrival of your child.
The hours when the outside world is of hardly any importance. There will be details perceived as through a looking glass and that will forever be imprinted – while others seem to blur in a tunnellike vision: You, working through the waves, inward concentration, hands holding and supporting. The arrival of your child and your faces when you finally see each other for the first time. The bonding and first feeding. The measuring and marveling.
With this work, I feel like I empower women while capturing wonders. In me, you gain an ally for your journey, one whose presence will probably not be noticed during birth, but will be of great importance later on. When you’ll be able to see yourself in your power. When all those fleeting little details are preserved, isn’t that even more special than any wedding photography could ever be?
Of course, our energy needs to be an absolute match. You’ll want to be at ease for a calm and self-determined birth. Which is why we’ll get together and chat, no strings attached.
Photography can also be an incredible tool when sorting and making sense of the whole experience in retrospect.
I always return to the images of my own two births in amazement. My kids marvel at them. And you and your child will most likely too.
