After six long years of struggling to have a baby, we knew we wanted to remember every special moment of that day. I had heard that birth rarely goes the way you think it will and due to complications, I not only needed a c-section, but I was also sedated during the birth that I had so longed to experience naturally.Read More
As birth photography grows globally in popularity, adding your business to an easy, established and credible system whereby, potential clients can find you, is a no-brainer!
Is it worth it?
Absolutely, and here's why...
Number 1: Your Client Will Benefit
This year, despite being in the UK, a client discovered my services via the Birth Becomes Her Map. In her own words, my client gives a brief breakdown of how easy the process was.
“I stumbled upon birth photography online and fell in love with the raw emotion captured. This fuelled me to investigate further for my own up and coming birth. I discovered the birth becomes her Facebook page which then led me to their website.
I followed the easy link to the 'find a photographer' section. A representative offered to contact Jo on my behalf or I could reach out myself. After visiting Jo's website I got in touch.
Shortly after a super relaxing face time call, I booked Jo to photograph my birth. Jo enabled me to relive my birth with breathtaking images and I treasure my album. She was such a positive person and was so supportive of me and my mum”
Lightroom has changed a lot in the past few years and now with the addition of Lightroom CC, and the updates to Lightroom Classic CC, it’s gotten more difficult to figure out how to install presets and what presets can be used where!
This will help you install Birth Becomes Her presets on Lightroom CC, Lightroom Classic CC (2015) 6, 5, 4, and Lightroom Classic CC Version 8. I am on a PC, if you are on a MAC, the screen shots will look slightly different, but I’ve included the text for MAC.
First, if you don't know what Version you are on, you can check by going to the HELP menu item and scrolling down to “ABOUT ADOBE CLASSIC CC” and click it, then a pop up will come up with the VERSION number.Read More

Her mother prepared for Roan with hypnobabies, a doula (myself), affirmations, and the positive atmosphere of the local birth center Baby + Co (Charlotte). She was equipped with knowledge, calm, and an abundance of love and support.Read More
This birth session was so, so inspiring. For some many reasons. But a few being that this beautiful mama welcomed twin baby girls in the comfort of her own home, she found out she was having twins at 37 weeks 3 days and welcomed her babes at 42 weeks and 1 day. She had her spouse and their little girl with them too.Read More
This was a first time mother who delivered her baby that was at one point posterior.
She arrived to the birth center at a 9 and was ready to go.
The word derives from Old English mid, “with” and wif, “woman”, and thus originally mean “with-woman”.
