Christchurch Birth Photographer
Capturing the amazing journey that is new life
Life’s Most Precious Miracle, Captured.
Our bodies are amazing. The fact that we grow, nourish and birth babies is absolutely incredible, and no matter how many births I photograph, it always amazes me, and makes me proud to be a mum. The birth of your baby is one of the most life changing days of your life. Imagine being able to document your strength, power and unconditional love as your travel through the journey of labour, each moment and emotion captured so we can hold onto these precious fleeting moments forever.
“Birth is an opportunity to transcend. To rise above what we are accustomed to, reach deeper inside ourselves than we are familiar with, and to see not only what we are truly made of, but the strength we can access in and through birth.” – Marcie Macari
However you plan to have your birth, whether it’s at home, in the hospital, or even an unexpected variation of what you anticipated, I’ll be there with you to support and capture your experience in both photo and video form. It isn’t just about the moment of birth itself, it’s about the journey, reactions and emotions of welcoming your child into this world. Those first miraculous moments when you meet your precious baby for the first time. Photographing your birth experience as it unfolds, in an unobtrusive and discrete photojournalistic style, blending in so you’ll hardly know I’m there. I love being an extra hand for help or support where I can too. It’s a once in a lifetime experience, and no birth is ever the same. Whether this is your first baby, or you already have given birth before, you are a new mother every time.
Where am I allowed to capture your birth? Thankfully I can photograph births in Christchurch Women’s Hospital and other surrounding birthing units such as St George’s, Rolleston Maternity, and Rangiora Maternity, and also available to capture home births at your own home.
I'm so excited to be able to offer both Photography and Videography for births. On Call Birth Photography and Highlight Film Packages start at $1400, with packages available to include maternity and newborn session. Payment Plans are also available.
I do limit myself to 1-2 births a month at the moment, so please get in touch for my full pricing and information brochure, so you don't miss out on having this amazing journey captured!
