REBEKAH COLLINS PHOTOGRAPHER
capturing the realness, the radiant and the rawness of life
Northern Ireland-based, Family Lifestyle Photographer & Videographer
Specialising in Birth Stories, Family & Motherhood Sessions
Birth Photography is nearly unheard off in Northern Ireland, but with a growing demand, I now specialise in birth photography. People have the misconception that it's having your 'bits' photographed, in close up, or even when baby comes out along with blood and whatnot. IT'S TOTALLY NOT THAT! Birth Photography is more than about the birth. It's about the journey of being in labour; having the support of your partner/husband/midwife/doula/mum/friend (or all of the above); having your kids around you so that they are part of your birth story; birthing your baby and the joy on everyone's face captured; and those few hours after baby is born, and all the bonding and love given by you. THAT. Is birth photography.
Lifestyle Family photography is so much more than asking everyone to stand together and smile. It's about capturing the smiles and laughs of you and your little ones, as you snuggle into them, giving them a little tickle. It's about documenting your growing family, not only as each birthday passes, but as more little ones are added to your family. It's about grabbing those unforgettable, most cherishing, raw and real moments of family life.
Motherhood sessions are just that! I come to your home, documenting life with your new baby and how your growing family are adjusting. We can be as free as birds and document life as it happens, or we can be a little creative and head outdoors - let's go to your favourite location, have some newborn photographs taken as well as family and breast/bottle-feeding time. This session is to celebrate motherhood and to celebrate your 'promotion' as mum for the first or fourth time.
