I didn’t get a chance to meet this family before labour started but I was quickly welcomed into their birth space. When I came into the room labour was progressing and baby number three was on the way. His big sister stole the show with her bubbly personality which got her into a bit of trouble as you will see. His big brother was the most involved kid I have ever watched at a birth. He even played with the placenta for a long time after. I wonder what personality this new little one will have he has two strong acts to follow! The last few contractions before the epidural kicks in. Fully dialated ready to start pushing. As you can see someone is ready to catch! “The baby splashed me!” She was a little bit mad at her new baby for splashing her on his way out.
Mentoring with Apple Blossom Families Mentorship begins with a free 30-minute information session to see if my one-on- one mentoring will be a benefit to your birth photography business. If we decide we are a good fit, we will have 4 one-on-one sessions where I share with you the secrets to my successful photography business. Included in these sessions include information on shooting births, editing, portfolio review, promotion, equipment, contracts, and workflow. You also have 6 months of access to me, to ask me any questions about birth photography. I don’t hold anything back! I have mentored both new photographers and experienced photographers, both who gained knowledge from the mentoring sessions.

Vancouver’s Experienced Birth Photographer Birth is such a special moment in life to document, why not do it with Vancouver’s most experienced birth photographer. Morag Hastings has been photographing births in Vancouver for the last 6 years documenting over 250 births. She is respected in the photography industry and by birth professionals in the city. Why get birth photographs? The day your baby is born happens so slowly but also so quickly, often the days’ moments become a blurry memory. If you choose to have me document your birth, you will have beautiful images of your child’s birth-day, the day you became parents, the moment your life changed forever. The best part is, your partner and support team will be free of being behind the camera. They will get to enjoy your birth in real time, rather than through a lens. If you have friends and family who are not in the city, images of your new baby will be posted online within twenty-four hours of your baby’s birth. These images will melt the hearts of friends and family. They will be crisp and beautiful. Having someone who is experienced in childbirth, who knows about mixed lighting and what […]
Vancouver Birth Doula I work as a both a birth doula and birth photographer in clients homes and in hospitals in Vancouver, BC. I specialise in home births and have a birth pool as part of my client’s packages to help ease the discomfort of childbirth. Before your birth, I have two educational prenatal visits in your home where we talk about what to expect during your birth, in Vancouver, with your care provider. I help you formulate a birth plan that reflects your wishes and how you want to be treated during your birth. I am on call day and night ready for when you need assistance. I stay with you and your partner during all phases of your birth until you are comfy and ready to go to sleep with your new little baby.

Having the clear crisp images after your birth to remember the day your baby was born is something you will cherish forever. Not only […]
