Having the birth of your child captured by a photographer is not on the top of everyone’s mind when it comes to planning the birth. However there are increasing numbers of Australian families seeking a photographic record of the experience.
By calling in a professional, it means you can be guaranteed the important moments are not missed, and that they are also captured with discretion and professionalism. Photographers who work in this market need to be on-call and available as soon as Mum goes into labour, and to be sensitive to the needs of the family and medical staff. Be sure to advise your hospital well in advance of your intentions to have a birth photographer, and remember, it’s about the birth, not the photographer.
