Birth photography is such an intimate decision, and there is no right or wrong answer to the the choice you make regarding whether or not you choose to have a photographer in the delivery room! I can tell you from experience, having a photographer there to document the birth of my youngest was the best decision I ever made for myself. Nurses are busy, husbands are busy, and lets face it, you are busy! Everyone in the room is too busy to take pictures, pictures of your spouses reaction to the arrival of your child, pictures of the first moments that you greet your child! These images, while super intimate, are also PRICELESS! The moments of labor and delivery are fleeting. They are quickly forgotten moments. I treasure the images I have of those first moments with my littlest. I wish I had them for my older children.
