Professional Birth Photography

AIPP Accredited Professional Birth Photographer, Alyson Lewis

Capture your baby's only birth day

Birth photography is a very special way to document and capture this special time for your growing family. It frees up Dad, Grandma or the friend who is there for moral support and allows the birthing team to be there to fully assist Mum while the photographer acts like a fly on the wall capturing your newest soulmate is welcomed earthside. It is more of a photojournalistic approach to photography and never has to mean explicit crowning shots. The photos are essential to have and treasure and reflect upon when the days come and go and the memories fade. A baby is only born once. You only get one chance at capturing those moments; the first breath, the first cry, the first gaze at mum, the first reaction from siblings, the first bath, the very first kiss. You deserve to celebrate this time and make this a truly and remarkably wonderful experience you shall NEVER forget… and if you do forget, don’t worry, you got it captured!

None of my clients have ever regretted having a birth photographer present, and in fact, they believe the birth of their child is more important than their wedding day.

My birth photography regret

One of my biggest regrets is not having a birth photographer present during the birth of my two children. They were moments in my life I will never get back, and like a wedding day, the birth of your child is high emotion on all levels, and the process of the birth is beautiful to me, and I’m always in awe of how amazing our bodies are.

I always make sure I capture photos of my children's birthdays and birthday parties, but I missed the boat on celebrating their original birth day and their very first birthday party.

It’s this personal regret and passion for the birthing process that makes me so committed to offering this service to women.

I’m an AIPP Accredited Professional Photographer and a PPAQ Certified Professional Photographer. I’m also a member of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers.

 

 

How to book a birth photography session

I encourage and invite all prospective birth clients to interview me before they make their decision to book, because I firmly believe that you need to be comfortable and 'click' with your birth photographer. I know for myself, I wouldn't have wanted someone documenting my journey that I wasn't comfortable with, or had never met before.

Aly photographed the birth of my daughter, and she is utterly amazing. She is so helpful before and after the birth! She captured moments that i will treasure for life and she captured them beautifully! Her pictures showed the emotion everyone was feeling! I still cry now looking at them!
She does everything she can to make sure she gets the images you desire. Barely even knew she was in the room!

My Husband and I are very reserved, shy, private people and my Husband thought I was mad to want a birth-ographer there present for the birth of our daughter. This was our second baby and I hadn't done much to record the pregnancy and wanted to do something special as we aren't planning any more babies. What better way to record the pregnancy than by having photos to help remember the moment you meet that special little person.

Aly was so thoughtful and professional that during the labour I had no idea she was even there.

The passion that Aly has for her work is evident and her drive to give others what she didn't have herself for the birth of her children results in amazing photography that captured the moment perfectly.

We had a very natural birth and that meant that meant there was no light except for that coming from a crystal lamp by the bed and the torch light used by the midwives during the delivery. She is well equipped for dealing with next to no light.

Then there was the editing that Aly did to produce a slide show that I felt comfortable sharing with family and select friends. For you see I was completely unclothed - yes I know I said I was reserved, shy and private but having a baby can lower ones inhibitions.

Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that I would fully recommend Aly to any expectant Mum and that I have no regrets in having a birth-ographer and I am so glad that we did it!!!

Thanks again Aly

Thank you so much Aly. Your skill, consideration, warmth, and love was obvious to Veronika and I throughout. It's been a pleasure sharing this life chaning / making experience with you. I know little Oliver will also treasure these most special moments that you captured so beautifully. The best of our lives. Thank you so so much. xxx
