Throughout my 7 year career as a birth photographer in NYC, I’ve been honored to have documented nearly 200 births. Birth photography is unlike any other form of documentary photojournalism because it’s documenting the first moments of life of a baby, capturing the moment a family is born. The images can be raw, they can be tough, but even in the toughest of moments, there is an immense amount of strength and beauty. And love. When it comes down to it, that’s the common theme of my birth images — they are all about love.
