This is a collection of some of my favourite documentary photographs created during labour, natural / caesarean birth, the first moments of parenthood and newborn life. 

While birth photography is not for everybody it does serve as a record of one of the biggest moments in life. There are different approaches to birth and thus, also to the documentation of it. I see these moments as sacred and am as discreet, respectful and invisible as possible during the process.

I take care to discuss with parents what they want and how they would like the experience captured as well as what my role will be in the birthing space.
