Photographer Kathy Rosario of K Ro Photography has always been interested in capturing stunning photos of pregnancy, childbirth, and babies. So when her friend and fellow photographer decided to have a water birth at home, Kathy volunteered to capture every wonderful moment of the ᴍᴏᴍᴇɴᴛᴏᴜs event.
According to Kathy, when a woman gives birth at home, it creates a different atmosphere filled with ᴘᴜʀᴇ ʙʟɪss and ᴛʀᴀɴǫᴜɪʟɪᴛʏ. She has been used to capturing moments of childbirth, but there is something about a home birth that makes the moment ᴇxᴛʀᴀ special.
“I have photographed quite a few births already, but nothing quiet compared to the sᴇʀᴇɴɪᴛʏ of a home water birth!”
Although water births aren’t sᴜɪᴛᴀʙʟᴇ for everyone, Kathy’s friend was a great candidate since she was young and healthy.
