Claire Saye Birth Photography

I am an Essex based birth photographer covering London, Suffolk and Essex. I offer a documentary style of photography showing the story of your labour, birth and postnatal moments at one of the most incredible times of your life.

Discreet and un-posed, I capture the pure magic and raw emotion of childbirth.

It is extremely important for me to be unobtrusive and hold the sanctity of the birthing space foremost in my work. My intention is that you can be totally present in the moment, while fully confident that I will do justice to your incredible and unique story. What an amazing thing to know that your child will one day be able to see the joy on their mother’s face the moment they were born. My wish is for you to relive your journey through my photographs, this time seeing things you may have missed like, a partner’s supportive touch, a sibling’s reaction when they meet their new brother or sister, the love in mum’s eyes as she sees her baby for the first time.

How it works

On call from your 38th week until your baby arrives, 24 hours a day, I am ready to go as soon as your story begins.

Whether you are having a home birth or hospital delivery, I’ll be there to capture your story.

Full coverage of your birth journey begins once you are in active labour right up until 2 hours after your baby is safely delivered.

As a mum of two, I know how incredible and sacred this time can be. I will capture these cherished moments with sensitivity and trust.

My birth documentary service starts with a consultation during your pregnancy. We will discuss your birth plans and what you’d like to get from me. We can discuss the images you would like me to capture, and those you don’t. I will endeavour to accommodate your requirements. 

As you will be sharing one of the most important days of your life with me, we need to know we are compatible and relaxed in each others company.
