My role (as everyone at birth space) is to be at service of the woman labouring, creating and maintaining a calm and safe environment so she can feel secure. Knowing that as a doula, and being fascinated by filming I decided I had to invest in a camera that operates in a silent mode but also film in 4K.
The couples that choose to have both services – photography and film acknowledge how they complement each other. The film allows to retell a story with characteristics that only sound and sequence can offer – the first cry of your newborn baby, how you moved and were supported during labour, but photography allow us to freeze moments and expressions forever. The advantages of having just one person doing both are obvious.
