Birth Becomes Her has shared their top ten birth images they’ve encountered this year, and we’re head over heels for the composition, the connection and the love!
Birth Photographers Monet Nicole and Jennifer Mason founded Birth Becomes Her in 2013. Birth Becomes Her offers resources for birth photographers around the world, as they know how important these lifetime moments can be.
This year, Birth Becomes Her assembled a panel of judges to blindly grade submitted images. They judged on a strict rubric created specifically for birth photography, and ranked the images as Top Ten, Top 10%, Top 25% or Top 40%.
They had hundreds and hundreds of submissions, and the best part about the top images is that they weren’t necessarily anything special–they were just real and gorgeous moments that were captured to speak volumes and volumes. They were ranked on lighting, composition, storytelling, focus, editing, sense of scene, overall artistic impression and respect for the vulnerability of birth.
The Top 10 images are going to be permanently included on their Curated Artist’s Collection page. This is a gallery that showcases the best beautiful birth photography images in the world. Birth Becomes Her had so many incredible submissions, they made the additional Top % categories so they could be shown as well.
And now, for the images!
Congratulations to all the winners, and thank you for such beautiful pictures!
