Welcome to Birth Becomes Her: a place to share and celebrate the beauty of birth. Our purpose is two fold:
1. To Show the World that Birth Photography is Beautiful, Powerful, and Life-Changing
2. To Support Birth Photographers in the Demanding and Exciting Field of Birth Photography
Here at Birth Becomes Her, we share beautiful birth stories and images each week. These blog stories feature a wide variety of birth locations and birth choices because we believe there is POWER in seeing how other people give birth around the world. We believe there is BEAUTY in vaginal births, cesarean births, medicated births, unmedicated births. We're also thrilled to be the first blog to pay birth photographers for their submissions. We believe that birth photographers deserve to be compensated for the incredible work that they share.
We also support new and established birth photographers through a variety of tools and resources. Jennifer Mason and Monet Nicole created the Birth Photography Toolkit, which equips new birth photographers with knowledge about birth, photography, and business. The Birth Becomes Her team also created the first collection of lightroom presets designed SPECIFICALLY for birth. The Birth Becomes Her Presets are being used by some of the world's most talented birth photographers. And lastly, the Birth Becomes Her team hosts workshops for birth photographers from around the world. These workshops are designed to be intimate and informative. Monet and Jenn hope that each participant walks away feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and inspired.
Each month we share five of our favorite images from birth photographers around the world. We believe birth is beautiful in all it's various forms and we never censor for nudity. Although many social media platforms prohibit these images, we strive for Birth Becomes Her to become a safe space where these images can be viewed and shared. The world is better for seeing powerful images of the female body.
