Winners of the 2019 Birth Becomes Her Image Contest

With over 1200 images from dozens of countries around the world, the 2019 Birth Becomes Her Image Contest was our biggest yet…and we couldn’t have been more inspired by the births you shared! Here at Birth Becomes Her, we believe there is POWER in seeing and sharing images of birth. We believe that the birth photography industry will only continue to grow as more and more families realize that there is nothing more valuable than preserving memories from the very best days of your life.

Our incredible judging panel spent the last week and a half pouring over each and every image submitted to our contest, and what we heard from so many of them was, “THIS IS SO HARD! They’re are SO many good ones!”

And we couldn’t agree more. With so many incredible births attended by so many incredible birth photographers, we have to acknowledge that this year’s winners come from a sea of many more award-worthy images. We are eagerly working on a variety of ways to share more of these images. Stay tuned in the month to come as we showcase other stories and artists.

But today, we celebrate this year’s INCREDIBLE winners. From all over the globe, representing so many different birth stories…
