Birth PhotograPhy

I AM SO PLEASED YOU ARE CONSIDERING HIRING A BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER - AS A MUM MYSELF I CAN UNDERSTAND WHY YOU WANT TO CAPTURE BEAUTIFUL, HEART BUSTING PHOTOGRAPHS OF YOUR BIRTH STORY, ITS THE LEAST PHOTOGRAPHED LIFE EVENT, BUT WITHOUT A DOUBT, IT IS THE MOST INCREDIBLE.
ITS MORE THAN JUST A RECORD OF YOUR NEWBORNS ARRIVAL, ITS FULL OF EMOTIONS, CONNECTIONS AND SUCH AN INCREDIBLE JOURNEY FOR ALL INVOLVED.
Its the story that you go on to tell for years, to friends, family and your baby, they aren't babies for long. However, for many parents a selfie taken on a phone after baby is born is the only photographs they have of their birth story - and yet weddings have hundreds upon hundreds of professional photographs!

WHY HIRE A BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER?

"We hired a birth photographer after realising that we had no images of any part of our previous children’s birth stories. You really only think about taking a photo once your baby is in your arms...missing out on capturing the intensely emotional and physically exhausting journey that you’ve just been on together. I also wanted our children to see Liam’s part in it all, as it’s easy to forget about dad’s role in birth..even though it’s pretty hands on during a homebirth!

We feel so lucky to have found Seona to photograph labour and birth. Her calm and gentle presence makes for the type of person you want around during labour. We’d advise anyone considering hiring a birth photographer to get in touch with Seona!" Jennifer

HOW DOES HIRING A BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER WORK?

As your birth photographer I will be on call 24 hours a day for 4 weeks around your due date, ready and waiting for your call!

I come along to your birth ( at home or in hospital) during active labour, stay for as long as it takes for baby to arrive and stay for up to an hour after wards. I am fully aware of how it feels to be in labour and experiencing a C section, I have three children of my own and have experienced both birth types. My style of shooting is unobtrusive, I don't use flash and I stay in the background as I document your birth story.

Before any of that happens, its great to chat on the phone and get to know each other a little better, then if you'd like to arrange a meeting we can do that at your home if you are planning a home birth or a local coffee shop. Not at any of those chats or meetings are you obliged to hire me as your photographer. These are so you can meet me in person and have an informal chat about birth photography to gather the information you need to make an informed decision. Also for me to find out more you, baby and your about your birth plan.

If you do choose to hire me, I will have all of the information I need when the time comes, I wont be asking you any questions during labour. I will know about your pregnancy, your birth plan,your family members, siblings even your dogs name! I will know if there are any aspects of the birth you preferred that I didn't photograph, I will know your wishes with regards to uncertainty such as if a home birth turn into a hospital birth etc.

I book just 1 birth session for each month.

I don't share any photographs with out permission.

absolutely no sales chat, just the information you need to help you make a decision
