    Default Birth Photography... Opinions?

    I'm curious to hear opinions on professional birth photography. Is it something you have had done, considered, or even heard of before? I'm wondering how well known it is here in Australia.

    As a photographer I know about birth photography and personally love it, but as a mother I was always unsure if I would want someone there to photograph my babies birth... So with a bub due in a few months it's time to make the decision if I want this one photographed!! So undecided!!

    I wish I had my DS' birth photographed. I think with the right photographer, it's amazing. A few friends have done it, their photos are beautiful.

    I got birth photos / videos done and combined into a movie. Love love love it.

    I am so grateful that for my last & perfect water birth I was able to record it forever.

    Do it! Find someone that you love and trust and watch some on you tube.

    Because If you dont like the pictures, you don't have to look at them but you cannot go back ever again!

    I'm not a fan of it. I'm a photographer as well and honestly I'd rather just take one of my cameras in and get df to take a couple lol.

    my sis is a photographer so she will be coming in and doing some pics. I missed out on seeing Dd until she was already all dressed and stuff in scn but i want to see this babe as fresh as possible. Dont want pics of him coming out though....just the very first moments.


    prob wouldnt have paid a stranger though....she can still double as a support person
