This is 'The Birth Story of Marla', my first time photographing the birth of a baby. It was a late night event in the family home with sisters watching and helping. I held off using flash for most of the photos so as to not disturb the mood.
When photographing labor I try to use ambient light as much as possible, I also don't alter the images and I show the series as they happened.
If you are interested in having a birth documented, to see more Birth Stories please e-mail me for password protected galleries.
