As the concept of birth photography becomes more and more popular, it sparks a lot of questions. The most common question we get is: “Why should I hire a birth photographer?”
During the birth process, everything is so chaotic (and painful) that you miss many of the little moments that occur that day. Birth photographers are there to help you remember your experience, and to help you look back and enjoy seeing this special day unfold. The memories created on that day are cherished stories you cannot just tell your child, but show your child. How great is it to have photographs to accompany your memories? We want to capture all of the emotion and love that you have for your child. They will look back on these photos and have no doubt that they are loved.
A lot of people think that birth photographers are not needed. They think the father can just take photos throughout the birthing process. He could do this, of course, but think about it a little bit. Do you want him snapping away, or do you want him focused on helping you breathe and holding your hand, cutting the cord, etc.? Not to mention, if he’s taking pictures, he’s missing out on the experience. Plus, he’d be missing from the photographs.
When we are hired to take your photos, we will capture the two of you together in this process. We will get the emotion between the two of you and all the little moments and details in an artistic manner. You don’t have to worry about a thing – we’ve got you covered. Take a look at our portfolio to get a better idea of what we capture and why you’ll want pictures like this of your own.

At times I forgot my photographer was there; which was perfect. She didn’t over power the birth nor distract us from it. The pics turned out amazing and captured memories I wouldn’t have been able to see for myself . As a mommy laying on the theatre table I missed out on a lot, but the pics allow me to be a part of those memories
I would recommend Tracy Lopes Photography as she is professional, friendly and makes one feel welcome. The pictures are of great quality and natural, not too much editing and adjustments.
