Published 1 year ago

The birth of a child is a miracle that cannot be easily forgotten by those who witness it. However, documenting this miracle through pictures makes it memorable forever.

The site of birth is not all rainbows and roses – it’s a messy, chaotic, anxious, painful, hopeful, and joyous blend of experiences. The International Association of Professional Birth Photographers organize an annual competition for photographers who make these raw experiences come alive through their photography. Check out this year’s winners in the gallery below. And if you want to see the winners of previous years, hop on to this article here.
