Sessions don't have time limits, it's important to get the right photos This is much easier without a time pressure. 15 images usually lasts about 45 minutes. But There isn't a rule, I stay until the job is done properly.

While we recognise labour is a very intimate experience and having a photographer present may not be for everyone, we offer this highly professional and compassionate service for those wanting to capture their miracle of new life. Before getting into photography Matt actually has 10 years experience working as a carer, he is very respectful, keeps out the midwifes way and offers an additional supportive calming presence. Matt aims to retain your modesty and dignity at all times in the images he creates. The main focus is not the labour itself, it’s about capturing the new parents emotions before and after, not necessarily during.

“We had Matt come and photograph the birth of our third child and literally the only regret we have is that we didn’t do this for the other two kids. We were a bit apprehensive at first having a relative stranger in the delivery suite with us… In the end we forgot he was there… he is so discrete and respectful… He caught all the love and emotions we went through as a family and we have pictures we didn’t even know he took at the time. We are so glad that we met Matt and decided to go for it with him… Massive thank you again… you are officially a trained surrogate dad/ birth partner now!”

– Duncan Family 2017

It’s a real privilege to witness the sheer joy which immediately follows and your newborn’s first breaths in this strange new world. No matter how many photographs you take of your children throughout their life, there will be that one newborn picture you keep going back to, a precious memory captured that will spark joy and pride whenever you look at it.
