Hello to husband recently got a job in Milwaukee and we will be moving in the next 10 days. I am currently 29 weeks pregnant and having a homebirth and am looking for a photographer (preferably a women) who would want to take birth photos at the birth. I have contacted several from a google search but none so far are willing to do a birth shoot. I was hoping someone here might know of someone in the area who would be willing to shot the birth? Thanks in advance.

I know of a photographer in Kenosha who recently did her first birth shoot, and her work was stunning. I don't know her personally-- I saw her work on an online photographer's forum that I belong to. PM me if you'd like her blog address.

My friend (and photographer) is located in Twin Lakes, WI and does beautiful work. She might be able to work something out with you if you contact her! She's super friendly and so supportive of natural births and loooves taking photos of babies.

It doesn't hurt to ask even if it is a drive

Have you made it to Milwaukee yet? "Welcome"

You should check out our Milwaukee Attachment Parenting group on Yahoo. This would be a great question to ask on there. I'm sure some one can help you out.

Where in Milwaukee are you living? I'm in Bay View and would love to chat if you need a new Milwaukee friend (and fellow homebirther ...if that is a word)

Interested in green living and money saving ideas?
