Birth Photographer?

Did you hire a photographer for your birth or know someone who did? How was it? Was it awkward? Or did you just have a family member take pictures?

Dh and I are ttc baby #3. I've been looking at birth pictures online and was upset that I don't really have any from my first 2 - mom and dh and grandma were coaching and it went so fast that they didn't get pictures. I thought about a birth photographer, but I don't know how I would feel about it. Or how dh would feel.

Anyone have anything they can share?

I had a friend at my second birth to take pics.  i love them.  My SO's mom took pics during my third delivery.  I wish i had pics from my first birth.

No. DH took pictures after the kids were born. I didn't want pictures of my labor or delivery.

My brothers wife took pictures, she is no pro and my god that girl got EVERYTHING!! I look back at those pictures and they aren't too pretty lol, very graphic and a part of me I don't want to see again lol. I do have one picture that I love, it was of my son as soon as he was out, bloody and everything but he was literally perfect. I didn't have anyone taking pictures at that angel with my first two so it was new, and awkward

I had a dula and she room pictures so I have some of him as soon as he came out all gross lol me cutting the cord and that's about it because they had to take him right away. So I'm glad I have them and it wasn't awkward at all, I didn't even realize it!

I have birth pics from both of my kids births. My husband took them with baby #1 and I took them with baby #2. Yes, I took my own pics while I was pushing out my son. They are up close and personal, ALL up in the vag area! lol :)

Anyways, I'm very glad that I have those pics, but I couldn't imagine hiring a stranger to do it. mI would prefer a close family member or even a close friend.
