I provide outdoorsy families who hate awkward poses, with documentary birth photography in Nelson, Tasman and Marlborough.
I can document the birth at home or hospital, at any time of the day or night. Couples generally give me a ring when they call their lead maternity carer or support person.
Hate awkward poses?
Do you feel uncomfortable having your photo taken? Don't want to be told what to do, smile and look at the camera? Your older kids even more so? Me too!
I love capturing mum's radiance; how her partner looks at her with such love; and siblings excitement at having a baby in the house soon.
Documentary family photography
I am a documentary family photographer. This means capturing what naturally occurs in front of the camera, without direction, staging or posing. I keep an eye out for meaningful moments, beautiful light and striking compositions.
99% of the birth will be captured in a documentary manner. I will gently create a formal family portrait if you would like also.
