"Why would anyone want to document their BIRTH???" I can't tell you how many times I have been asked this question- followed by "Why would YOU want to document someone's birth???"
I find a birth to be it's own kind of love story. A wedding is flowers, smiles, and cake. Birth (many times) is at night, everyone is tired, labor is long and painful; sometimes the process of bringing a little person into the world is not as easy as we had planned. But at the end, there is something almost tangible...those first few moments of a baby's life. The baby's cry, dad's tears, mom's amazement that the baby is finally here, love between mom and dad that is so strong, I sometimes feel like I'm intruding. :)
THIS is why I photograph birth.
