Photographer Captures Her Friend’s Beautiful Waterbirth
Having a photographer at the birth of a child is not unheard of these days. Birth photos are a beautiful memento of one of the most extraordinary experiences in a mother’s life. A Florida-based family photographer Kathy Rosario has captured the emotional moment her close friend gave birth to her third child, a baby girl, during an at-home water birth.
Photographer Kathy Rosario of K Ro Photography has always been interested in capturing stunning photos of pregnancy, childbirth and babies. According to Kathy, when a woman gives birth at home, it creates a different atmosphere filled with pure bliss and tranquility. She has been used to capturing moments of child birth, but there is something about home birth that makes the moment extra special.
There’s something compelling about birth. Despite the pain and raw edge, birth and the story of birth has drawn people in for as long as we remember. Not really a surprise then that images of birth and of newborn babies, awake our curiousity and evoke a sense of calm joy, even though the photos that might be confronting.
