Beautiful birth story photography by Natalie Carstens

Natalie Carstens | The Birth PhotographerHello!  I’m a documentary family photographer with a love of capturing personal stories of pregnancy, childbirth, and the precious early weeks at home with a newborn baby.

I’m based in The Hague, The Netherlands, and travel within the Randstad area (Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht).

My specialty is birth story photography. To welcome a baby into the world is magical, it’s all-consuming, and powerful. The ability to reflect and remember your experience through storytelling images and video is immensely special. I invite you to view the featured birth stories that my clients have kindly allowed me to share; see the beauty and power of birth through my eyes.

I look forward to working with you!

"Thank you so much for sending us the slideshow. You were right about having tissues handy ; ) We love it so much and have watched it so many times since yesterday! We melted the moment we saw the first clip you inserted in between pictures, what a nice surprise! We shared the video with our families, which was a surprise for them, and they all were very moved and are grateful to have the moments captured. How wonderful and fortunate that you were there with us."

“Natalie has such a gift. She brought a kind, soft, loving presence. Every picture she takes has a meaning, and the slideshow became a work of art. We feel blessed to have had Natalie with us on that special day.”
