Anyone ever had this done before?? A girl I went to high school with (we KIT on facebook) is a photographer and she does birth photography. I've been really thinking about getting it done, but wanted experiences from people who have done it. She gets to the hospital when you are 5cm and stays through the entire birth. I know its not very glamourous giving birth, but I saw some photos that she did and she made it look so beautiful. She obviously does not take any gross pics, but the pics she took of the newborns first moments of life are so precious! She put together a slideshow of the pictures with music and I just think its awesome to have that as a keepsake. I would love to document my first natural birth. My only issue is that I think it would be weird to have someone in there other than medical personnel during such an intimate moment just snapping pics. Your thoughts?
My last birth, my sister took pics (not very flattering), but this time DH and I will be the only one's present during birth so we don't have anyone to take pictures of Sophia's first moments. I know we will be so caught up in the moment that we will forget. Do nurse's take pics for you when you have nobody else?
I just keep going back and forth on this. Hoping you ladies can either talk me into it or talk some sense into me. LOL!
