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. 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 and documentary photographer and videographer in St. Louis, MO, it is such an honor to have the opportunity to capture real people living their ordinary lives and show them just how beautiful and memorable their simple, everyday moments really are. I love being there to document the biggest transformative moments - welcoming a whole new person into your lives - as well as all the mundane moments in between. I have loved photography since I was a little kid carrying around an old 110 film pocket camera. More recently, I've discovered that filmmaking allows me to document moments in a way that really brings memories to life. The music and movement add so much feeling to images, and I've really fallen in love with the process.
