Hiring a birth photographer has become more and more popular in recent years. I have even seen photo contests for the best birth photography. These types of photographs are still subject to some controversy, but I find them to be beautiful. Although I didn’t have a birth photographer for my first child, I was lucky enough to have one for my second. There were so many beautiful moments that are now documented forever. Read down below to see my birth photos and why you should consider a birth photographer.
This week has been tough for my husband and me. Three years ago exactly we were told something truly horrible. It’s the stuff of any parents nightmares. We were excitedly expecting our second child. Our daughter was ecstatic to be a big sister. But tragically our dreams were crushed at my six-month OB appointment. Our little boy who was just three months away from being born had unexpectedly passed away. We were devastated. But that’s not how the story ends. Luckily we were blessed with our rainbow baby. I am sharing my pregnancy after loss story to bring hope to others in the same, or similar, situation.
Last year was a rollercoaster of emotions for me. I was expecting our rainbow baby, which was stressful. I wasn’t sure if I would ever have another baby after this. So we thought that the baby shower would help us get excited for the arrival of our child. And we were right it did. We had so much fun, and we were shown so much love by so many! I found all my inspiration for this baby shower on Pinterest. So this is basically a Pinterest #win! (I’m not creative so I thought it would turn into a Pinterest fail!)
Pregnancy can be a very exciting and nerve-wracking time. You’re trying to get everything ready for Baby’s arrival. Trying to eat right, and hoping you’re not going to puke afterward. But sometimes we need to remember to document the changes we are going through. Pregnancy is beautiful, and your body is doing some pretty amazing things. You should take the time to photograph these changes in a gorgeous milk bath photo shoot.
