When I started in birth photography 8 years ago, every time I posted a photo, I thought - Will this offend someone? Will people unlike my page if I post this? Is this photo “too much?”
If even 1 person thought it was inappropriate, I let it affect my business, my marketing and my confidence. These fears & insecurities swirled in my head and slowed me down, until I realized… “If I have a passion & drive for birth photography - it’s for a REASON. It’s because I’m made to be a birth photographer.” And the same thing is true for you my friend! Your passion isn’t there on accident, and that passion is not something everyone feels!
Then, I started sharing photos that lit me up. Photos of babies being born. Moms in the throws of labor. Families meeting those babies in the hospital room and at home. Sometimes photos of placentas 🤭
And you know what? I got unlikes and unfollows. But I also got a LOT of new people liking my page, following along and hiring me!
So, I’m here to encourage you!
I pushed through those fears, and now have, photographed well over 100 births, a photography studio in my town, 3 team members and retired my husband with my birth photography business.
Which is why in this episode, I’m going to share with you my top 5 tips for new birth photographers (things I wish I knew back then).
