A birth story

This is a rather long post. With so many photos. But they told such a wonderful story it was hard to cut them down! I actually cried when putting this post together because these photos document one of the most special experiences in life: the birth of a baby. We photograph so many other special moments such as parties, holidays and weddings it seems only right that we should photograph a birth. I’ve heard that in the UK we’re not allowed professional cameras in hospitals though? Does anybody know if this is true? Because it seems such a shame if so.

I would love professional images, such as these Jessica Kettle has taken, of my little person entering the world and meeting their new family. These pictures are precious…


Thank you to Jessica for letting me share these images. Congratulations to Jayme & Jeremy on your beautiful baby girl. And baby Charlotte… welcome to the world! :)

    And that is exactly why I would LOVE to photograph a birth this year! These images are full of such warmth and love – totally heartfelt, incredibly special and such a beautiful record of a birth. Thank you so much for introducing me to Jessica’s work – what an inspiration!

  3. I completely love these photos! They made me cry at my desk! The expression on the mothers face when she is holding her baby for the first time is completely magical and I can’t look at it without welling up! Stunningly beautiful! xxx

    Beautiful! Moving, exciting, scary, honest and can I say beautiful again. So lovely, even the midwife is giggling with joy – you really feel like you’re in the room with them. Wonderful work.

  5. What a wonderful record of such a fleeting time that would only be remembered in a haze without these pictures. Stunningly emotive – the mother holding her baby for the first time takes my breath away! Great talent x
