The day your baby is born, your life changes. Forever. This day is just as important as your wedding day! And you likely invested in a professional photographer to capture those special moments. My clients have described the day they gave birth as “Life-changing,” “The hardest thing I have ever done, and of which I am the proudest,” “One of the most important days in our lives. It bonded my husband and I in a new way.”

 

No iPhone image can do justice this special day for your family; this is a day to be documented for you by a professional.

 

I often hear, “We’re really interested in birth photography… but we might just have a friend take photos to save money.” Or, “My husband doesn’t get why he can’t just snap a few shots between the birth…”

 

With permission, my clients have allowed me to share a few of the photos that were taken by family/friends at the same births that I attended as their professional Birth Photographer and/or Doula. Thank you to each family for trusting me to be a part of your birth, and for allowing me to share these images in the hope of illustrating the value of hiring a professional birth photographer. If you haven’t already done so, please read my post on Five Reasons to Hire a Birth Photographer: “A birth photographer is trained and experienced in how to capture the best-possible images for you; from choosing the right angles, to the lighting, to capturing all the small details, as well as all the time it takes to edit and compile your birth story, a professional birth photographer is equipped with the necessary tools it takes to beautifully capture your birth.”

 

I am truly passionate about my job; I invest my heart and soul into my photography. I am beyond honored each time a family entrusts me to capture their birth story.

One of my favorite images to capture postpartum is the first embrace between dad and baby. The last thing a mother wants to do right after giving birth is making sure that moment is documented; often, by herself! I anticipate this important moment, and I intentionally capture it from multiple angles.

Families often like to have their birth space low-lit, which means potentially difficult lighting situations. This is why I have invested in equipment that is made especially for low-light situations.  Camera flashes are not recommended around newborns due to potential eyesight damage, but I use a professional flash, which allows me to “bounce” my light source without causing distraction to a laboring mother, and without any risk to a baby’s eyes. Even in dimly lit situations, I am experienced and prepared to capture your birth story without disturbing the peace of you birth space.

After baby is born, parents are often eager to share with the world the news of their new arrival. The easiest way to do this is by snapping a quick phone image, and uploading it to Facebook. With this in mind, each of my birth packages include a few edited digital files within 24 hours to use as your official birth announcement.

One of my birth co-workers nicknamed me “The Birth Photographer Ninja!” Having photographed several births, I am always thinking “ten steps ahead” about where I need to (unobtrusively) place myself in order to capture all the important details and special moments that you want to remember. I take the time to document all the important details from creative angles. Spokane Birth Photographer, Why Hire a birth photographer, Esther Edith Photographer and Doula Spokane, Coeur d

Entrusting a professional birth photographer to capture your birth story allows your husband to be fully present, and support you 100% throughout your birth.

It’s truly amazing to me how quickly babies change within only a few hours from birth. That’s why I offer First Hours sessions to create a visual memory for families who want to capture their earliest hours with their newborn. This means that I arrive at your birth place within 48 hours, to document all those fresh, baby details, and elated moments with your brand new baby.

Garrett and Cari invited me to capture their first hours with their baby, Eric. (I also did a newborn session with them over this weekend, and it was so interesting to see how his face, hands, and feet, have already developed over merely two weeks!)  Enjoy these highlights from their First Hours session at Spokane Valley Hospital, and please connect with me if you are interested in inviting me to capture your growing family.

Newborn Lifestyle Photography Somerville Massachusetts, by Esther Edith Photographer and Doula

 

You might recognize this lovely couple from their recent Maternity Session; it was pure joy to also capture their early days with their adorable little son.  What I love about the newborn lifestlye sessions that I offer is that they are designed to be as stress-free and relaxed as possible, and they usually take place in your home, so that you can have all the time you need to nurse, change, soothe, and bond with your babe. I aim to capture all the little details that are easy to forget in the blur of early-parenthood! These sessions are typically 3 hours; the time slips by so quickly, and I come home with a collection of beautiful, authentic images that capture the rawness of your early relationship with your new baby. Enjoy a few highlights from Brandon and Alexandria’s lifestyle newborn session in Somerville, MA, and please reach out to me if you are interested in inviting me to capture your story.

{Please note that I now serve Spokane, WA and Coeur d’Alene, ID}
