I have been a Birth Photographer at 4 water births! There is another on the books! Right around the corner. I decided to take light into my own hands this time. I am packing my gear bag with an underwater flashlight, specifically for water births. Illuminating the water is a benefit to the Birth Story. If you followed the Birth Photographers. com image awards, there are many water births featured and some have lit pools. These images are gorgeous, and dramatic, ( as birth can be).
