Voting is open for the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers 2012 Image of the Year Competition

Jan 30, 2013

Every year, the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers (IAPBP) recognises excellence in birth photography.

More than 150 birth photographers from around the world have submitted incredible images of birth; real moments, real emotions, raw and powerful.

I’m so grateful to my clients for allowing me to submit an image – the one I chose is below, it was taken just moments after baby Zephyrin was placed on his mother’s chest. To me, those eyes tell so much.

An amazing panel of judges will choose a 1st place, 2nd place, 3rd place and an Honorable Mention winner. But YOU can vote too! Voting is open for the People’s Choice Award, so be sure to stop by and cast your vote. I would love it if your favourite image happened to be mine (it’s #48) :)

Voting closes on Friday 1 February at 23:59 CST (for us in The Netherlands, that’s Saturday 2 February at 06:59 CET).

Thank you so much to everyone who has voted so far!

With love,
~Natalie

Nature inspires me constantly and I’m often pausing to take it all in or to capture what I see in a photo. I usually only have my phone camera with me on my morning walks so this round of Impressions is a blend of DSLR and iPhone photos. I love witnessing the seasons...

We're still regularly geocaching! We go out with a walking route in mind and a cluster of caches to look for along the way. It's nice to escape the busy beach area and find quiet places in nature. In early April we invited friends to join us and we walked round...
