I remember starting up this business 9 years ago and people would look at me with confusion "you photograph WHAT?" I patiently tried to explain birth photography was about capturing so much more than that 1 photo. Sometimes they would understand and sometimes they wouldn't. Despite their reactions in the early years, my heart called me to push on and keep shooting births because I loved what I did and the mother's who "got it" were sooooo appreciative of the photos I gave them. Even though I love it, it's hard. In fact, it's exhausting work... I wish I could take more holidays. I wish I didn't have to check my phone 50 times a day. I wish I could tell my kids "I'll be there..." but sometimes I won't be and luckily they get it. I have chosen to do what I LOVE. Capturing birth stories and supporting women during labour makes my heart happy. Thank you to True Calling for telling my story.
