almost 15 years ago I gave birth to my first child, joshua.
of that life changing experience these images above are all i have,
i have even less for my following 4 births;
there is so much more that took place between that first and last image,
so much more.
i wish i had the full story,
but i’m the photo taker in my family
so this is it.
most of you know just how much i love photography,
and telling a story in pictures.
i have been thinking about the times in our lives that are incredibly life changing,
and i have noticed that this time, the time when we give birth often goes fully undocumented,
the story of birth is the one i feel i want to tell the most.
from beginning to beginning if you like, and [everything] in between.
it is not that all the other stories that make up our life have less importance,
they are often the ones that lead up to the story of birth after all,
but i feel drawn to documenting births in a sensitive and real way.
i wonder if there is somebody you know that you think would like to have the birth of their child[ren] documented?
i would like to offer a complimentary birth session to you or someone close to you,
all you need to do is email me email@example.com or leave me a comment
and let me know why you think this person would love to have their story told.
submissions close on the 30th of april and the only restriction is that the person must be a melbourne resident.
i really look forward to hearing from you,
