Birth Photography| Jacki G. Photography| Richmond, VA | Family & Newborn Photography

I first met Meg at Panera to discuss my idea of birth photography and newborn photography . We hit it off and she signed the contract right there. We chatted via email a few times and discussed the type of birth photography she envisioned. Meg was scheduled to be induced on the 10th of April. So, being on call was much easier since I knew what day I would be photographing her birth. She was admitted into the hospital around 7 a.m., she was 4 cm. and they broke her water. I figured since it was a induction this would take a while even though this was her second pregnancy. Needless to say she was a rock star and delivered her baby only 3.5 hrs after being admitted into the hospital. I can share a few great images from the birth.

I look forward to photographing little W. next week for his posed newborn photography session.


Meet E. | Birth Photography by Jacki G. Photography| Richmond, VA | Family & Newborn Photography


I fell in love with this sweet, beautiful family the first time we met.  I photographed the birth of their first baby and had the honor of photographing this babies as well.   This was the most lovely experience , working alongside two incredible birth workers Midwife and their doula (Amy). The birth was fast and amazing.  Patricia was a Rock Star!   The family chose not to find out their baby's gender until the birth.  I hope you love reliving the day E. came earth side just as much as i have while piecing their story together.

Birth Photography

I have always had a passion for photography and babies, pregnancy etc.  So i combined my talents and have finally found my passion.  To be present at a miracle and document this miraculous event is an honor.  I have photographed several births and was in aww.  To present the parents with a story of how their family began is really special.  

Why hire a birth photographer?
The photos from your labor and delivery will serve as a beautiful reminder of one of the most important days of your life. Allowing The Birth Photographer to handle this very important task will not only free up Dad or your other support person to be more available to you during your labor and delivery, but it will also ensure that his or her participation is captured on film. Dad won’t have to worry about taking photos, so he’ll be better able to enjoy the moment right along with you. He can be a more active participant. It’s definitely a day worthy of documenting. 

About birth photography
Birth is very unpredictable, and the lighting is never ideal. These are not portraits. Jacki photographs births in a photo journalistic style and prefers to use black and white images for your slideshow. The black and white images better reflect the mood of the event, and they help to tone down the graphic nature of birth.
