Side of the Road Birth by Breanna Gravener in Victoria, Australia
The very first birth story that I was really fascinated by this Breanna Gravener's Apple Orchard car birth. She captured such an amazing experience, in such a beautiful way! After obsessing over this incredible birth, I spent a lot of time checking out her website and I loved the way she showcases her birth work. She captures details, big and small and her work shows that you CAN combine portraiture photography and birth photography in a unique way. Even if your clients don't deliver during golden hour, on a gorgeous fall day, in front of an apple orchard - it can still be thoughtful and beautiful. The angles she chooses to capture this story are thoughtful and creative; the colors are beautiful and the story is amazing.

Name: Breanna Gravener
This birth happened in the car, beside an apple orchid en route to the hospital. It was golden hour in the morning with melting dew on the grass.
Father and older sibling were in the car also and all were overjoyed and calm on the quick and safe arrival.

Leave it to a photographer's baby to be on time and born with the sunrise! This was the second birth for Madison, fellow photographer and mama to two now, a boy and a brand new baby girl. Her son, not yet two, was also present for the entire birth experience.
Jennifer and I created the online course because we were hearing from so many new and beginning birth photographers that wanted better education options. Birth photography is one of the most incredible and growing fields out there...and yet we seriously lacked any type of formal education. Birth Becomes Her aims to fill that gap!
Along with our public FB page, Birth Becomes Her has a private FB group, where birth photographers from around the world share and learn together. We're consistently floored by the images these photographers post. Birth is BEAUTIFUL and ripe with artistic possibility.
"I had finally bought the last of my home birth supplies and felt ready to have my baby nine days before my estimated due date. My husband went out with my daughter and after I took a much needed nap, I had a sudden burst of energy. I happily cleaned the house to my heart's content without interruption. I joked when my husband came home that Jasper now had my permission to be born. Ironically, just a few hours later while we were laying in bed, I began having some slight bleeding and cramps followed by contractions that were irregular, but gradually getting stronger.
