“I must admit that initially I was a little daunted by the idea of having a photographer present at the birth of my second child. I worried about lots of things a woman might, such as “What will I wear? I don’t want to be indecent when a camera is present!” (like that’s an option in labour! Lol!) “Will I look crazy in photos of me having contractions?!” “How will I cope, and will I scare the photographer out of the room in transition?!!” (Ladies who have had a baby, you might know what I mean!!). However, in meeting with Bree, so many of these fears and worries subsided over a few chats and giggles, as I expressed them to her and she took me through how it would all work.
Bree showed an amazing level of professionalism, passion and respect for our birth journey, making us feel at complete ease.
When we were presented with Jemimah’s Birth Story, my husband and I were really taken back…it was amazing-precious beyond words, and I thought to myself “I am so glad I didn’t let my worries stop me from this amazing opportunity, and that now, we have such a precious record of the morning we met our darling little girl.” – Adaline
“Adam and I can’t thank you enough for capturing the beautiful moments we shared in welcoming our gorgeous baby boy into the world.
Having you there felt so natural. The experience and the photographs were even more amazing than we anticipated. You were so professional and you captured moments that we would not have even thought of. Having you with us enabled Adam to focus on being there for me through the labour process and to simply enjoy the precious moments with our brand new son rather than reaching for the camera as soon as he was born. Bree, the photo’s you took are beautiful and natural and they make my heart melt each time I look at them. Thank you so much for making our precious memories ever lasting.”
“I just want to say again what a wonderful job you did recording the birth of Tania’s baby. As Tania’s midwife, I was impressed by how unobtrusive and professional your presence at the birth was – we were barely even aware of you during the birth – and yet the photos were amazing and captured the moment beautifully! Your photos tell the story of this wonderful birth imaginatively, sensitively and (importantly for when sharing photos) discreetly!
Wishing you all the best.”
“We weren’t initially sure what to expect having a photographer as part of our birth, but Breanna was very friendly and unobtrusive and we felt 100% comfortable having her there.
When we looked back over the photos it was amazing to relive some of the emotions Breanna had captured of our journey. We are so thankful that we had decided to have our birth photographed, as we had already started to forget some of the emotion. Now we are able to relive and share the memories with family and friends, memories we will and can always treasure.” Leigh & Suzy.
