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!

"Finally at home with sleeping Olivia who's still just perfect in every way. Thanks Natalie for being with us for that long overnight that resulted in such a beautiful ending. Can't wait to see more pictures!"

“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.”
