pregnancy & birth photography

I offer pregnancy photography, birth photography and a special doula PHOTO package. The photographs can be a special gift to commemorate the unique event of pregnancy and birth.

Pregnancy Photography

A prenatal photography session with me is a birth preparatory exercise: You rehearse how to be relaxed in your own body while others are looking at you. You create your own birth space where you feel comfortable and safe. Pregnancy photography can take place in your own home, but I also offer pregnancy photography at my studio in Valby.

A pregnancy photo session can strengthen the attachment to your baby. Or as one of my clients has stated: “It was nice and relaxing, almost like having had a massage”.

With pregnancy photography, I want to pay tribute to ALL kinds of female bodies. There is no ‘baby bump’ that is nicer than others. This is very very important to know and keep in mind.

I recommend pregnancy photography about 4-6 weeks before the due date, but it can certainly also be in pregnancy week 38,39,40 as a loving and calm birth-preparatory activity such as pregnancy photography may seem birth-maturing.

Send love to your own body and your baby through pregnancy photography.

Birth Photography

It is becoming more and more popular to have a birth photographer to document the child’s arrival into the world.

If photographs are important to you, but at the same time you feel that the presence of a professional photographer at your birth would be intimidating, it is a good idea to contact a specially trained birth photographer.

With a birth photographer, both parents can be fully present during the birth – as well as in the pictures afterwards.

A birth photographer is a woman who has given birth herself and has experience and knowledge about birth situations, photographic situations and image processing.

A birth photographer always prepares and coordinates expectations with the pregnant woman/couple before the birth.

A birth photographer works discreetly, without getting in the way of professional staff, without violating personal boundaries. Situational awareness is the most important skill of a birth photographer.

A birth photographer brings her own professional, silent, discreet equipment.

Photographs from the birth can be used to review the birth process afterwards.
