THE BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER | ESSEX - Anne Thomas

THE BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER ESSEX

CAPTURING STRENGTH AND FIRST BREATHS

The art of birth photography is a growing movement across the globe, and more recently, in the United Kingdom.

In birth, there are many moments that only happen once, and in that moment a thousand memories are created.  These occasions are there to look back on, filled with emotion that leaves a place on our hearts.

Photography, throughout time, has played an integral part in capturing moments that we create in our families, and until recently, documenting birth has been excluded from the list.  Yet, of all the moments in life, this is one you can guarantee is a one time only event.


What is birth photography?

It's capturing your birth story through a documentary style of photography - no special lighting, nothing rehearsed - just capturing those moments of strength, beauty and first breaths.

"I can't fault Anne at all.  She was wonderful, discreet and professional.  My photos are amazing and captured all the emotion between my husband and I.  So pleased I booked Anne, it is lovely to have so many photos to choose from.  I'd strongly recommend Anne to capture all the special moments of labour and birth."

The Birth Collection

The Birth Collection has been designed to capture your baby's first year - from birth through to 12 months.  You can choose one session, or multiple sessions - and when you choose birth photography, then a Fresh 48 or Breastfeeding Skin to Skin is complementary, no extra shoot fee involved.
