The life changing moment you hear that first cry, the look of wonder in your eyes as you finally meet this little soul that has been growing inside of you for months… These are moments that only happen once, and that you never want to forget.
While plenty of new dads snap pictures of their baby moments after birth, having your birth experience professionally documented allows you to relax and your birth team to be your support. Hiring a professional birth photographer lets them live each moment with you instead of behind a camera, and ensures that everything is carefully and professionally documented so that it can be relived later.
