Casting Call For Birth Photography
I love doing maternity photography and newborns. They are so much fun and I get to share a little of the joy of capturing the sweetness of their bundle of joy. So I have been thinking I would love to do birth photography. What a special time for a couple, the nervousness and excitement of bring a child into the world. So many emotions during this stage of life.
What is Birth Photography?
When a mother and father are ready to have a child they get ready and pack up and head to the hospital. Once there it can be a whirl wind of events, and I would love to capture them along the way.
Why would I want Birth Photography?
As a mother of 4, I can remember most of those days I spent in the hospital having my own children, but having a hard copy would have been a fantastic memento, because there is parts of those days that I just don’t recall, and once my child was born I had to rely on dad to capture those first gimps of baby. They where not all that great as my husband is not a photographer.
Why are you doing it for FREE?
I have never done birth photography and need to portfolio build. So in order to do this I offer services for free time to time. Also because I have 4 of my own children and a husband who works shift work. I might not be able to attend the birth, if it happened to fall on a week my husband is working or also I have prior commitments to other clients being weddings or events, that I might not be able to reschedule.
What’s in it for me ?
You would get a $150 free 4×6 album, so you will be able to share it with friends, family and eventually your child. Plus my services for Free and if you have a long labour that could be 24 hours. I would also supply you with a copy of low resolution images that are watermarked for web-sharing.
