I am a very emotional and intuitive person, I am a photographer because everything I feel can be captured in my pictures. There is a canvas that I can artistically fill with love and the greatest passion. In my work, feelings should be so clearly visible that they can also touch strangers.
Birth is about so much more than just the moment the child first sees the light of day. It is a journey of transformation, the journey from woman to mother.
There are many reasons why I chose the birth photography route.
On the one hand, we can give birth; we live in a society that always wants to be better and faster, we are exposed to evaluations every day, often from. ourselves, while we forget what we are capable of.
I want to show women how strong, sensitive, vulnerable, yet powerful and, above all, how beautiful they are. Especially during childbirth, a woman is divine, so powerful and graceful at the same time.
They should see how wonderful they are, feel proud when they see themselves in their pictures. On the other hand, every woman has the right to experience a self-determined birth, which is, unfortunately, not always the case.
I would like to give birth mothers an insight into self-determined births, encourage them, and take away their fear with my work. It’s not just memories; I believe that through our work, we as Birth photographers can play a major role in changing how people look at birth and thus also support future mothers and births in giving birth in a self-determined and autonomous manner.
