Do you know what birth photography is? Until a friend of mine began a birth photography business during the last year, I had no idea! Now, I know that I didn't give birth, but even if I had, I'm not sure I'd have been aware of this option. And to be honest, if she weren't my friend and I hadn't take the time to view her work, I'm not sure that the idea would have appealed to me. Because I talked about the controversy surrounding the question: Should cameras be allowed in the delivery room? earlier today, I thought I'd take a minute to discuss the option of having a birth photographer -- assuming your hospital or birthing center allows one, of course. (And if you're birthing at home, you don't have to worry!) I've been in the delivery room for the births of three babies. While the experience truly is miraculous, I'm not sure it's something I would have wanted an excessive amount of photos of after the fact if I were the delivering mommy. I felt that way for a long time until I saw my friend's work. I have one word: Wow!

Birth photography truly is amazing. Nicki of Nicole Noelle Photography changed my mind about having a birth photographed by a professional and she didn't even know it. Since viewing truly talented work on {Fresh} Birth Photography, I've asked friends who were expecting whether they were considering hiring a birth photographer, and I've even suggested it.

What about you? Did you have a birth photographer capture the hours before and the minutes following your child's entrance into the world? If you're expecting, will you consider a birth photographer?
