First of all, let me just say, I do NOT endorse not hiring a professional birth photographer! As you read this, keep in mind that I desperately wanted to have my friend and fellow photographer Jill with me during my fourth birth. I was heartbroken that she wasn’t allowed to be there!
I gave birth to our fourth baby in the midst of the Covid-10 pandemic. It was around Christmas time and the restrictions were still in full force. Michael was able to be with me in the hospital and in the delivery room but no one else was permitted to be with us.
As a photographer, the thought of not documenting the birth of one of our children and knowing that all of the others had been documented was incredibly sad to me! So, we created a plan!!
Together, with the help of Tyler Herrinton and our new R6 Mirrorless Canon Camera, we were able to capture and document baby Rhett’s birth and I’m so incredibly thankful!!! What a gift!!

Overall, I wish we could have had a photographer there but I am THRILLED with the results of our make-shift setup. I never thought I would have to brainstorm a way to document my own birth but like we all experienced, anything was possible in 2020!!
Enjoy this video and if you’re considering documenting your own birth, I hope you’ll find these tips and tricks to be insightful and helpful!
