LOS ANGELES FAMILY FILM SESSIONS- NATALIA WALTH FILMS

This little film of mine allows me to express how much I love family sessions.

Family dynamics and connection. The story filled with little voices, snacks, evenings at the park, Saturday evening ice cream with the family. It is all these beautifully mundane moments that make parenthood. It’s these moments that fill our children’s memory cup. How beautiful it is to capture it for them ( and for you) in this way. To remember this spring and summer with joy at the sight of family filled days.

Sun-filled days.

Tiny babies.

Silly dads.

Toddler giggles.

Exploring.

Happy mamas.

California sun.

But most of all, I love…

What is it friends, what do I love the most?

{DON’T CALL YOURSELF A BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER}

 

A few days ago some texts came out about a “birth photographer” shaming a mother about her caesarean. It hasn’t been confirmed if these texts were real and the validity is being questioned but, nevertheless, it has been shaking up the birth world.

I had some clients and family members tag me in social media. They were shocked that anyone would say something like this. I was disgusted. I cannot ever imagine saying that to a potential client. The first c-section I ever photographed was one of those life changing moments for me. I knew caesarean moms were rockstars. But, I didn’t quite imagine the level of sacrifice they endure to birth their babies. I watched as this client of mine unquestionably gave her body to an ob/gyn and the entire medical staff. She trusted that they would bring her baby earth side with skill and respect. She laid on the table as they tied her down and provided pain relief. She let go of any sense of control. She gave it all.

And when her baby was out and she heard her cry. She cried a sigh of relief, then she let the drug take over as they closed her up. I was there watching, capturing as her partner took over and loved on his baby. You can see his worry as he glances back at her on the table. It’s not an easy thing to watch the love of your life cut open on the table for your child.

I cannot imagine the recovery time. I cannot imagine the pain.

So let me just say this. And I only want to say this once in my lifetime…DON’T CALL YOURSELF A BIRTH PHOTOGRAPHER IF YOU HAVE THE IMPERTINENCE TO JUDGE A WOMAN ON HOW SHE BIRTHS HER BABY!

I really hope this “photographer” was not real. My blood boils even thinking about the disgusting things that she wrote. I won’t link to the texts. I just won’t. By now, I am assuming you read it. I truly hope you don’t.

Just to send some love to ALL caesarean mamas. Here are some love stories. I can’t think of a better way to end the month of love.

xo,

Natalia (a birth photographer)

Home Birth with an SCV Midwife- Santa Clarita Birth Photographer

I am so excited to share a beautiful home birth film. In case you missed her birth story, read it HERE and the beautiful images. Or just scroll a bit and I will share her words. She is an incredible and strong mother!

Birth of Rutha-Joy from Natalia Walth on Vimeo.

Birth after a stillborn.

I delivered 3 boys before Rutha Joy, all at the same Hospital, and all with the same Obstetrician

group. When I switched to my midwife at about 30 weeks, my one request to her, was to deliver

Rutha Joy as fast as my body would let me.

I wanted to have a home birth for many reasons. No interventions, no epidural, no OB telling me

what to do, and cutting the umbilical cord to early. Having my sons with me. The biggest reason

I wanted a home birth was, that I did not want to be at the same Hospital, the same room,

and/or have the same doctor as I did with Gideon.

I had an appointment with my Midwife the day before my due date. I asked her to strip my

membranes, and then I went to the chiropractor. Basically get my body ready to deliver my

rainbow baby.

When I made it home, my oldest son was already taking a nap. I was able to get my other son

down for his nap as well. I called my midwife and birth photographer to let them know I was in

labor.

I went to wake my husband with tears in my eyes, to let him know I was in labor. He worked all

night and did not get to sleep, as soon as he got home. Babies never come when it is

convenient, and that was true for my husband every time. He got my birthing tub ready, and I

laid down to wait for my midwife to arrive.

Rutha Joy arrived an hour after my midwife got to my house.

The things I remember about my birth, was having a wonderful moment with my midwife. I was

able let go, and heal. Let go of feeling like a failure for getting epidurals, losing my son at 34

weeks, and getting ready to accepting the intense pain that comes with contractions.

By the time my Doula arrived I was already in the tub, birthing freely. I had a few contractions,

and then I had a contraction, that made me want to jump out of the tub. I heard my midwife say

she is here. Reach down and grab her. In that moment I went from the worse pain, to no pain at

all, and was holding my little princess.

The best part about having a home birth was like always, hearing Daniel say good job momma,

and having my boys minutes later meeting their sister.
