In the middle of a rainy night I was called to drive to Atlanta to document an adoption birth. It was the birthmother who wanted photos that she could gift to the adoptive mother. The room was dark, quiet and the energy and gratitude was so present that it felt like we were moving and talking slower than usual.Read More

First birth photography for Regard de Zebre. Exciting and nervous at this time but I knew it would have been the best moment of my carrier. Home birth that I waited for long hours, nights and days.

ON the most beautiful earth."Read More
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?

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
