I’m a former corporate manager who could never shake the love of adventure out of her heart. The routine was replaced with the excitement of life behind the lens, and now, I channel my love for adventure by managing a business I love in an industry I adore.
I became a family and birth photographer because I love watching love, life and connection come alive right before my eyes. I became a birth photographer, specifically, because I couldn’t find anyone to help me document my labor story.
Birth is one of the most life changing moments in a family’s life.
A mother will give birth to her specific child on a certain day, at a certain time, and just like pages of a calendar, this day will come and go, only to be relived again through the memories that were made on the day. I didn’t want to forget and, now, I don’t want anyone to have to forget. So I dove right into the world of photography and never looked back.
The birth of my own child in 2015 ignited a deep interest in the world of birth and birth photography.
It happened almost immediately. I have always loved photography, however, I got into birth photography, specifically, because when it was time to have my baby, I couldn’t find anyone who covered that sort of life event.
I knew in my heart that I would be missing out on documenting a true gem of a life-changing moment, and it made me terribly sad. While my mom did bring along her camera, and while she was able to take all of ten pictures before finally succumbing to her supportive role throughout my labor, ultimately, I never got any professional photos.
Until this day, these ten pictures happen to be some of my most treasured photos. They will always hold a very special place in my heart, and I often look at them very fondly because they truly represent the day my life has forever changed. It sounds cliche but it’s really true. I didn’t want anyone who felt the way I felt about wanting to document the birth of their babies to continue feeling this way, and so I ventured into this world.
Lana Photographs was born, and I have never looked back.
