Nowadays, it’s pretty popular for women to write out their birth story. It’s a way to capture what happened in words, so you can always remember that special period of time.
But they also say a picture is worth a thousand words, right? Ever thought about hiring a photographer to come document the momentous occasion?
Sharing a few of my most cherished photographs…
After being two weeks late, my labor finally started hard and fast.
Time to Push
After hours of laboring, it was go time.
One of my most favorite pictures. You can see the commotion captured in the picture. The first few moments…
In My Arms
My sweet baby girl. She made me a mother.
This is one of the pictures I will cherish FOREVER! A picture really is worth a thousand words.
A Family of Three
Spending those first precious moments together.
She was a Daddy’s girl from the very start.
Picture of a Picture
She looks just like her last sonogram picture!
Capturing the Moment
Having these pictures are priceless. I think my mind is made up to make sure someone is there to document our second baby girl’s arrival.
I didn’t hire a photographer for my first baby. I did, however, ask my mom to take some pictures throughout our time at the birth center. I had no idea how much those pictures would end up meaning to me. I cherish them!
They really do hold so much more meaning than my written words. The pictures help me remember what I was feeling as we welcomed our first baby into the world.
Looking back over them recently has left me considering hiring a photographer to come document our second birth. I think it would have to be someone who we knew and trusted, but I’m pretty sure I would be really upset if we didn’t.
What a beautiful way to capture the moment.
What do you think of labor photography? Would you hire a photographer?
