The Birth Experience

This month has seemingly revolved around all things birth related! I have feverishly been working on several birth photography related projects for my own business but more on that later. Right now I want to mention something really exciting happening for birth photographers everywhere. You may have noticed that it is a growing trend for parents to hire a photographer to capture their birth experience. This is no surprise to me, the birth of a child is one of life’s most significant events and it is worth documenting. More and more photographers are stepping up to the challenge that this exciting  style of documentary photography presents.  Not a week goes by that I don’t get questions about what lens I use or what one should  know before photographing a birth. So I am honored to be a charter member of The Birth Experience – Lyndsay Stradtner’s guide and mentoring program for birth photographers.

Lyndsay Stradtner is one of the most accomplished birth photographers in the industry. Her birth photographs capture the energy and emotion surrounding the growth of families – in short she is no less than amazing.

Not only has Lyndsay laid out all the details in her written guide but she has also created a forum for birth photographers to connect and share their images and ideas. In addition The Birth Experience will also provide a Member Directory to aid expecting parents in finding a birth photographer in their area. So, if you are an expectant parent looking for a birth photographer this part is for you. Likewise, if you are a birth photographer or  interested in becoming one please check out The Birth Experience! I look forward to seeing you there.
