Dads can do many wonderful things and until recently it was Dad’s job to snap the first few photos of mom and long awaited baby. However there is one HUGE problem with this, Dad is not present in the photos. Without you, Dad, this tiny human would not be here. You are an integral part of this child’s birth. You are mom’s most important support person. You should be free to support your wife and enjoy your baby. Let me help you document this amazing, miraculous time in your life, so you can be fully present for your family.
READ WHAT OTHER MOMS AND DADS THOUGHT OF THEIR EXPERIENCE:
There is so much that happens that the laboring mother forgets or doesn't notice. Birth photography allowed me to see so much I missed. I saw how awesome and involved my husband was. I felt the pictures showed a different side of him....so nurturing. The pictures helped bring to light the intimacy of our relationship. ~Robin
“Being able to give my wife all the love and attention she needed, by not having to have a camera and watch the experience through a lens was one of the greatest gifts Maggie provided.” ~ Ryan
"I thoroughly enjoyed having Maggie at our birth because it gave me more time to focus on my wife's needs and also provided me with peace of mind that our experience would be captured. With Maggie there, I was able to enjoy the process and remain in-the-moment with my wife and new baby!" ~Dustin
BENEFITS OF BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHY
“Having a birth photographer allowed me to focus on my partner's needs and allowed me to be present in the moment without having to be behind a camera "capturing" our memories. I was also able to update our family knowing I wouldn't miss a single moment!” ~Nick
“I watched the slideshow again tonight and cried my face off. It is amazing how when things seem challenging with feedings, lack of sleep, or that our families are hundreds of miles away, I can go back to this video and it reminds me of all the love and support I felt when I brought her into this world and allows me to look around current day to say "it's okay, we are doing pretty great" ~Erica
”I was having a really hard time the past 4 weeks processing the birth and was really sad and upset that I didn't do a good job and give David the birth I had hoped. The photos relieved all of that. I honestly didn't remember 75% of what you captured. I loved seeing my other kids' faces and the faces of my doula and husband. I feel so blessed to have been surrounded by you all.” ~Ashley.
