Water Birth by DFW Birth Photographer

I asked Lynsey Stone of DFW Photographer if I could publish one of her birth sessions on IMB. Lynsey is able to capture the beauty and emotional moments of a birth despite the numerous difficulties that photographing a birth presents (more or less being ready at a moment’s notice, being completely unobtrusive, and capturing the intense moments surrounding the birth).

I love looking at these photographs of this water birth taken in December of 2009 because it tells such a warm story surrounding a new life. The photograph of dad kissing mom while she seems to take a breath of air is amazing. And oh – this little one decided to show up into this world about 10 minutes after Lynsey got there – have to be on your toes!

Any others photograph births? Would love to hear your comments about birth photography!

From DFW Birth Photographer: This was a home water birth in December ’09.  This family had hired midwife, Donnellyn Dominguez (http://www.allaboutbabies.net) to attend their birth and when she arrived at their home didn’t realize how fast this birth was going to take place.  I luckily made it in time, but only just barely!  The baby was born about 10 minutes after I got there!

Tips from DFW Birth Photographer: I think my biggest tip for someone shooting a birth would be to stay quiet and out of the way!  No one wants to be tripping over the birth photographer when they are trying to provide emotional, physical or medical support to a laboring mom or baby!  :-)
