I’m so excited to be adding birth photography as a service available to my lovely clients.
I’ve photographed two births in the past which fuelled my love of them and reinforced my want to document births for other families. However my own family commitments meant it wasn’t something I could do at the time so up until last week it was still in the back of my mind as a “sometime in the future” BUT a highly motivating workshop with The Birth Femmes came along and kicked me right in the motivation butt. I’ve been wanting to offer birth photography for a long time and things have recently lined up beautifully to allow it to happen and I want to do it right now!
SO I’m Folio Building!
We are looking for pregnant women interested in having their birth documented to help create our folio of images, it’s a chicken or egg thing! We need photos of birthing mums, to show birthing mums what we can do and need birthing mums to get those photos! What a mouth full 😂
If you are pregnant, due in the next few months and will be labouring in the Perth metro area I’d love to hear from you!
I have started a new Instagram account specifically for my birth photography and you are invited to follow along here: @samanthamay.birth.photography and I will be offering a hand full of portfolio building special packages to start with so if you or someone you know would be interested please contact me for more details.
