Finding a person you trust to share the most intimate day of your life with is crucial.
Trust. Confidence. Comfort
Are you quiet? Reserved? Or are you extroverted and outgoing? Do you plan on laboring in silence, or with a room full of your closet family and friends? Who you hire matters. Your photographer needs to either be stealthy like a ninja, or able to be personable with your family that really likes to hug and tell jokes. A qualified birth photographer should feel like your closest friend, like part of your family. That is how they get you comfortable in front of the camera, that is how they disarm you and get your natural, raw, and genuine reactions. The more you trust and bond with your photographer the better the experience you will have, and I promise you, the better photos you will get.
