To be asked to photograph a mother giving birth is such an amazing honour and privilege. The intensity of emotion, drama, love and magic had me on a high for days. I watched Bel show incredible strength and calmness in equal measure as she delivered William in a water birth. He is now a gorgeous, curly haired little boy running around with his big brother, but capturing him entering the world is still so vivid an experience for me to reflect on.
I just came across this article from a competition for birth photography. So well worth a look as there are some striking images from talented photographers. Click here to view …. Competition entries
