The Winners of the 2018 Birth Photography Contest Show How Amazing Mother’s Are


When we previously featured the finalists and winners in the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers for 2016 (see here) and 2017 (see here), it created quite a stir.  A lot of you thought the images were beautiful, while a lot of you thought it was just too much.

If you were in the latter camp, you should probably stop reading now. That’s because the Birth Becomes Her community – a group of women passionate about the beauty of birth and the skill of birth photographers field – have just announced their 2018 photo contest celebrating “real images of birth, breastfeeding, and motherhood.”

Here are all the winners and finalists, as well as some of our absolute favorites.
