Helen - Belfast Birth Photography

Hi, I am Helen.
I'm a photographer based near Belfast whose purpose is to serve mothers as their family grows, through Birth, Newborn and Motherhood photography.
I want everyone to see how beautiful, powerful and important birth photography is.
For women to feel empowered, to see their child's birth story, documented artfully and taking in all the details that may be missed in the rush of hormones and adrenaline.
For women to look forward to a positive birthing experience.
To have natural, documentary style photographs of their newborns in the first few days of life to treasure how their child looked when they newly born.
To feel proud if they are able to successfully breastfeed and see how beautiful it is.  
To have the focus turned to you and celebrate Motherhood. Many mums have a camera roll full of beautiful photos that they’ve taken of their partner, or family with their little one, but barely have any of themselves. I’m here to capture the photos you deserve.
