Birth Becomes Her - Ten Beautiful Umbilical Cord Images

One of Birth Becomes Her's goals is to create a community where birth photographers can grow and celebrate their work with each other and a larger audience. We loved sharing eleven beautiful waterbirth images this week, and we can't wait to share these ten incredible umbilical cord images with you today. The cord can be as unique as the baby it serves...and what a vital role it plays during the nine months we carry our babies inside of us. You can visit each birth photographer's website by clicking on the image below - we encourage you to explore their sites, follow their work, and be continually inspired by the beauty of birth. 

And if you're a birth photographer or a birth artist, we'd love for you to join us on facebook! We have a growing group of artists who are in the work of celebrating birth. 

If you'd like to learn more about birth photography or simplify your birth photography workflow, we'd invite you to explore the following Birth Becomes Her tools: 

Birth Photography Toolkit: You can learn as you go by trial and error over many months and years, or you can take the shortcut of the comprehensive Birth Becomes Her Photography Toolkit. Monet and Jenn sat down and compiled this guide based on their experiences at over 100 births in all types of settings. Topics covered include Birth 101, Birth Etiquette, On Call Life, Camera Settings, Social Media and What to Pack in your Birth Bag. This resource is the only one of its kind in Birth Photography education.

Lightroom Presets : Birth often takes place in non ideal lighting conditions. These presets were developed by Monet and Jenn to use in their own editing workflow to solve the lighting challenges they commonly faced. When applied upon import into LR these presets can save you hours of editing time and give you the results you want from your photos.
