To make use of a birth photographer is not an easy decision to make, or at least it wasn’t for my husband and me. To choose to share such a personal experience with a stranger was a big step for us. I know at that moment you really couldn’t care less who is there and by then more people would have viewed your private parts than the Grand Canyon in silly season. Still, this person will be just as much a part of your journey as your birth partner.
With my daughter, my mother was present at the birth and acted as our photographer. She snapped away to capture all the special moments (which we so quickly forget). She even captured that first cry that fills the room the moment the little ones make their way into this world. With my second one my mother looked after my first born and could not be present for the birth, so after careful consideration (and knowing how much we value the photos of Líla) we decided to go the route of a birth photographer.
After months (and I really mean months) of looking for the perfect photographer to be present in our birthing room we came upon Sherra-Lyn Breebaart photography via a referral. I immediately fell in love with her portfolio. She has an amazing ability to capture a story with the moments.
In the end, we could not have been happier with our decision to make use of a birth photographer. With our birth story turning out not quite as planned we would never have thought of taking a single picture but Sherra-Lyn captured the entire journey. We are now able to look back on our son’s birth with fond memories and not just the panic of the moment. Honestly, I cannot recommend her enough.
Most of the time we did not even know she was there and when we did know it was only because she was so supportive and encouraging. After this I consider her a friend, an amazingly talented photographer and an essential part of Chrido’s birth.
