Photographers for birth?
Oftentimes I see women asking why other women would choose to have a photographer at their birth and in their birth space. Questions/comments commonly asked include:
“Isn’t it too many people?”
“Why would you want photos of that?”
“That would be way too expensive!”
“I wouldn’t share them anyway, so why would I want them?”
While I initially thought the same things, my experience has been that having the right photographer in your birth team (as in photographer credits here) can actually make a world of difference! For me, my photographer wasn’t even noticed unless I was in need of her support, and then she was there.
I wanted photos to have a memento of the birth of my child, just as I would for any other massive transition in my life! As for expense, it was so worth it, but only you can decide whether that is the case for you. Though I would ask, if you’re willing to spend money documenting your wedding, why not the moments you first meet and hold your baby? While you may not share some of the images, there are almost certainly some that you’ll want to share far and wide.
