If you were able to capture the exact moment your baby took its first breath, and be able to look back on it for years to come, would you take up the opportunity, or would you let it slip by?
A lot of people in Australia have an assumption that Birthing Shoots are messy, disgusting and inappropriate, but it is in fact the complete opposite, it is beautiful. Birth is a completely natural thing so why not treasure those moments where you were doing the exact thing that Women are designed to do... give birth.
Birth Photography is not about taking pictures of blood and gore, the role of a Birth Photographer is to capture all the moments that you never want to forget, in a photo-journalistic style that you will be able to look back on in years to come. Having a Photographer present at your birth allows your partner to completely support you as you go through your birthing journey, and will capture the pure joy and excitement on BOTH of your faces, not just yours.
Birth Photography is very discrete and you will hardly even know the photographer is present. First Breath Photography has experience with Birth Photography, and knows exactly what you want captured and how to stay out of the way whilst capturing all these memories for you.
Imagine being able to look back on the simple little things like seeing the exact time on the clock as your baby entered the world, the look on your face when you first set eyes on the little bundle of joy that you will spend forever protecting, you or your partner's first cuddle, the cutting of the cord or simply the way your partner adored and supported you even though you were cranky, upset or in pain. These are just a couple of examples of the little things that you will have a lasting memory of after a Birthing Shoot. View More...

Catherine & Mike H,
Kelly McEwen Photography photographed the birth of our first child. What an experience! It's not something I would have considered, but after meeting Kelly, I knew I'd be comfortable with it - and it was one of the best decisions we've ever made! You didn't even know she was there, apart from feeling confident that nothing important would be missed. My husband and I were free to be completely focused on our precious baby without needing to remember to take photos.The shots Kelly got were priceless - especially the way she edited them and put them together in a slideshow - I cried every time I showed it to someone, and everyone who's seen it changed their tune from "eww - you had a birthing shoot?" to "oh - so THAT'S what it's like - not the messy part, just the first precious minutes of your baby's life! Wow - I can see why you'd want this!" We will definitely be asking Kelly to be capture the first precious moments in the lives of our future children.
