The Uncontainable Joy Radiating from Parents’ Faces When Welcoming Their Newborn Is Simply Irresistible!

Tennessee-based birth photographer Kalyn Noland’s goal is to capture both the magical and trying moments that come with childbirth. And while she loves photographing the tender moments — like when a mom meets her baby for the first time — there’s also something to be said for the less glamorous parts, such as when you have to push. While photographing Cheyenne Munoz, a new mom who recently welcomed her first son and rainbow baby, Kalyn captured one such moment to show that moms-to-be have options during birth.

“Pushing . . . Did you know that you DON’T have to push with your legs in the stirrups?” she captioned the candid birth photo she shared to Instagram on Feb. 11. For Kalyn, ensuring that soon-to-be moms know they have options is paramount, especially given her experience as a parent.

Birth photography is a highly specialized field and the choice to have the experience documented is an intensely personal decision. It involves the birth process, environment, the parents and those in attendance.

Birth photography encompasses the tears of joy, the wonder of bringing a new life into the world and celebrates family. The photographers who specialize in the field use their art to tell the story of birth.

The winners of 2017 contest have been announced. The International Association of Professional Birth Photographers chose the best photos which depict the struggle of mothers in giving birth to their babies. Have a look at these photos to see how life begins and the emotions read on the faces of new parents.
