And I do cherish it so!
Yes, I’m a midwife and I get paid real money (well, usually–I’ve been known to accept butter, firewood, eggs, and vegetables–among other things–in lieu of cash from time to time) to help folks give birth at home, but it’s so much more than a job to me! In my mind, in my heart, it’s a chance to better the world, one magical experience at a time.
Besides immortalizing the most profound moments of our lives, birth photography is an amazing way to spread the magic around so folks wanting some for themselves can know there’s really lots and lots of it out there–and I’ve been known to chip in on the cost and/or discount my fees for those with such desires!
