Why Choose Birth Photography?
You might be wondering if birth photography is right for you. Maybe you’ve never heard of it, but you’re intrigued. Maybe you love looking at other people’s birth images, but you aren’t sure if you want another person in your birth space - let alone taking pictures. Maybe you are all for documenting this momentous life event, but your partner isn’t totally on board with hiring a birth photographer. If any of these apply to you, or you have other questions about how it all works - What if I go into labor in the middle of the night? When do you come to my place of birth? What if things don’t go according to my birth plan? - I’m here to answer your questions. Here’s a link to my FAQ. And, of course, feel free to contact me to set up a consult where I can answer all of your questions and ease any concerns.
A beautiful story of a birth that didn't unfold as planned...
Hi! I'm Dana. As a birth photographer and filmmaker in St. Louis, MO, it is such an honor to have the opportunity to capture some of the most important moments in a family’s story. I love being there to document your biggest transformational moments - like welcoming a whole new person into your lives when your baby is born - as well as all the beautiful ordinary moments in between. I have loved photography since I was a little kid carrying around an old 110 film pocket camera. But it was the birth of my own daughters that led me to pursue birth photography. Having experienced the empowerment of giving birth, I have developed an incredible appreciation for the unfolding of each individual birth story and love nothing more than documenting the strength and support that gets your baby into your arms.
