Each year, the Birth Photography Competition unveils some of the most beautiful birth images we’ve ever seen and this year is no exception. We’re excited to share some of their favourites with Babyology readers.
The competition is the brainchild of the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers (IAPBP).
The call went out to well over 1,200 photographers in 42 countries and the cream of the crop scooped the award pool.
“Our Association has grown by leaps and bounds and our members continually produce excellent, emotive, invaluable birth photographs for the families that hire them,” association founder Lyndsay Stradtner said.
They most certainly do, Lyndsay!
These shots are compelling and beautiful. Women, babies and families captured in life-changing, intimate moments.
