Ik denk altijd dat een geboorteverhaal het beste kan worden verteld door de ouders zelf. Als geboortefotograaf leg ik het hele verhaal vast en vertel ik het middels de foto’s. Maar ik ben natuurlijk erg nieuwsgierig naar de ervaring van de ouders. Hoe is het om voor de eerste keer mama en papa worden? Om na 9 maanden je baby in je armen sluiten? Hoe kijk je terug op de geboorte van je kindje? En uiteraard, hoe is het om mij erbij te hebben en om de hele geboorte terug te kunnen zien op de foto’s? En wanneer ik dan deze ervaring lees, weet ik weer zeker dat geboortefotografie het mooiste wat er is!
Birth of our first child, first time being family, becoming parents, these are the happiest moments of our lives. Having a birth photographer was a must for us to capture the birth of our son, not only for us but also for him a great memory in the future. We wanted to work with Dora as we really appreciated her experience in this field, her talent to capture emotions during labor: the support given by father-to-be, the love to each other, first moments in life of our little treasure as well as her great personality. She is so friendly, calm, from the first appointment I felt close to her. You can see immediately how she adores her job being a birth photographer and waiting for a call in 4 weeks time frame is not easy, this is a lifestyle and you can only do if you love your job. On the 26th June when we called her and informed we are going to the hospital, she was there waiting for us already. During labor she worked so professionally, she was quiet, invisible in the room yet I personally got strength from her smile and her presence. Not only this special, miraculous moment she photographed but also she stayed after birth and could capture memories when grand parents and uncles visiting our baby first time and sharing our happiness. The slideshow she made is in one word beautiful, we love to show it to all our friends and share these amazing moments with them. From Dora’s camera we were able to see all that happened and we really loved how she photographed everything. We are super happy for the support she gave, for her professionalism and the job she did, all beautiful pictures she created. These will be with us and after us with our son forever. This is why it worth to work with Dora, to make all these unforgettable moments last forever.Beril & Erik
