The Beautiful Birth Story Of Lydia | Washington DC Birth Photographer | Baby Number 1

Washington DC Birth Photographer

Usually when I tell people I am a Washington DC birth photographer it goes something like this…”Birth photography, you mean, actually being IN THE ROOM, for…that?!” I chuckle a bit and explain to them it’s not THAT shot, the one everyone sees in their mind when they hear the term “birth photographer”.

Being a Washington DC birth photographer means I get to share a families story of one of the most monumental days of their lives. With social media as relevant as it is in our lives, people capture and document everything. Their Starbucks order of choice, to-do lists, new shoes, I could go on and on. It is also standard practice to hire a professional photographer to capture your wedding, when your baby turns one, engagement pictures, Christmas card pictures etc, so why not capture the story of your child’s birth day, a dad meeting his brand new daughter, or the first family photo?

The Birth Story Of Lydia

These images of Lydia’s birth encompass so many of the reasons why I love my job, and why I think birth photography is so important. While I usually let the images speak for themselves, I have to tell you how humbling it was to witness this birth and how blessed I feel to share these images with you. Hannah labored completely naturally with the support of her husband, Jake, her doula, midwife, and a midwifery student. Everyone had a certain calm about them, which we all agreed was the Lord’s presence in the room. Each birth is different form the last and will be different from the ones in the future, which gives me something to appreciate about all them.

A Note About Washington DC Birth Photography

While this Washington DC birth photography session was capture many years ago, I am currently taking on a limited number of birth photography session each year. Hiring me as your Washington DC Birth Photographer means that I will be on call to capture your birth story for two weeks prior to your estimated due date and for two weeks following your estimated due date. Ensuring I have room in my schedule to accommodate both birth photography clients and be a Washington DC Newborn photographer means that I must limit the number of sessions I take at any given time. Please feel to contact me here for further information, as I would love to hear from you!
