Gentle Birth

The birth of your baby is one of the most extraordinary and life-changing events that you will ever experience. The journey of the woman into motherhood. So pure, so raw, so primal. Such a unique event deserves to be captured on images for you to hold onto and never let go.
Send an email to and I will happily tell you all about the details.

This session includes:
- introducing chat
- on call from 38 weeks
- images of the birth and the first few hours
- digital editing to process your images (colour/ black and white)
- high resolution images supplied in an online gallery for you to download, share or print
- lots of affinity

Through my photography, I am committed to contribute to a gentle, conscious and physiological pregnancy, birth and maternity period for mother and child. I do this by sharing informative, inspiring, raw and honest images. It is my great wish for all babies to have a gentle and save entrance into this world. And that women feel empowered by carrying that medicine and confident in birthing new life.
You may choose to give birth at home (perhaps in a birth pool) or have the baby born through caesarean section due to medical circumstances. All types of births, in any circumstance, can be gentle.
The smallest choices make a big difference. Think about which hands are the first to touch and hold your child, which voices will the baby hear first, how long will your child remain attached to the placenta via umbilical cord, and so on.
Birth is a ritual, that's why you can choose the place, the space, the people around you, the music, the smells, every detail counts if it's important to you.
