One of my first birth client’s Anthony, changed his mind wholeheartedly and now every time I see him, it’s like we’re fast friends because I was there in one of the most pivotal moments in his life.
“When Sammi first suggested that we have a birth photographer, at first I was incredulous.” says Anthony. “The idea of letting a stranger into such a private and important moment seemed unnecessary, and it also felt a little hurtful. I saw the role of the Dad during birth, or at least one of the roles, as capturing those first moments. Once I saw how much I had to focus entirely on Sammi and the process and how distracting it would have been to worry about things like photographs, I knew we’d made the right decision. Of course the idea that I could have done anywhere near as good a job as Kel is laughable too, but that was how I felt initially.”
