It was a privilege and honour to record a birth, sometimes as a silent photographic witness, on the edge of a sacred space, sometimes helping and holding the birthing mother. I love how she reached out during contractions in the birthing pool, as though beckoning new life towards her. Life is all about love. What greater reminder of love and life than the birth of a precious baby?

Here is a small gallery of images, while the more intimate and identifying images remain private. I would welcome hearing from you if you would like your birth photographed, and would be able to share a greater portfolio with you.
