Capturing the start of their new life.
I am so glad you are interested in having this precious event photographed!
Birth is one of my biggest passions. I have had 4 births myself, ranging from a hospital birth with an epidural and an OB, to an unmedicated water birth at home with a midwife. I believe that ALL birth is beautiful and will respect and support any educated birth choice that a woman makes for herself and her baby. I also have training and experience as a doula and have a deep understanding of the birth process.
Through my own birth experiences, I have learned that birth is a life-changing, woman-changing event. And that through it, a woman will learn more about herself, and her capacity to love, than any other event in her life. It is my goal to capture that experience in photographs.
It is a great honor and privilege to be invited to a birth, and I do not take it lightly. I am there to blend into the background and document the process, but I am very happy to offer any support and encouragement that I can. I promise to be discreet, to respect you and your partner, and to deliver tasteful and beautiful photographs that you will cherish.

“I have nothing but the highest praise for Erin! Not only are the pictures she took incredible, beautiful and so filled with emotion but her support during labor was worth just as much. Erin was an extra set of hands, a calm voice, and a wealth of knowledge and suggestions. I thoroughly enjoyed having her as part of my birth team and still cry every time I watch our slideshow. I could not have been more blessed by her!”
“My family and I have hired Erin Hull Photography twice now to take shots of our first daughter as a newborn a few years ago and most recently the home birth of our second lovely daughter. Erin is amazing. Not only is she extremely talented but she really cares about the families she photographs. I was a bit nervous about newborn pictures, wondering how it would go, etc. but she definitely put me at ease and showed much patience, grace, and love throughout the session. She’s wonderful.”
“We are so happy we decided to do birth photography for the birth of our son. Erin was able to capture to pure beauty of our delivery. It warms my heart to know we can look back at the photos to remind us of the precious moments when time stood still when we welcomed our son into our lives.”
“There is no person more meant to photograph births more than Erin Hull. Erin captured the emotions of our day so beautifully, and so tastefully. I feel every bit of the anxiety, warmth, relief, and completeness (looking through her photos) that I did on that day. Erin immediately became part of the sacred birthing space while I gently labored. Her presence is known but undetected, and she blends in with the energies, making you feel at peace. Erin’s doula heart guides her work. Erin is a gift, and we are very fortunate to have been able to have her at our son’s birth to capture the most perfect, precious moments that made us parents to our second…moments that were love in the purest form.”
“Erin didn’t just provide us with beautiful birth photography but was so graceful in the process. I remember thinking “Oh no, that went so quick I know she couldn’t have captured it.’ Only to find out that she was perfectly positioned to get even the smallest details. She focused on what was important to me and delivered her amazing work quickly after the birth. I highly recommend Erin Hull Photography for one of the most precious moments in life, birth.”
“Erin is great, kind, efficient, and discreet. Her eye for composition and getting the shot without seeming to be there was uncanny….she did wonders with [my granddaughter’s] birth!”
“Erin did an incredible job photographing my sons birth!!! I only wish I could have had her photograph my other two births!! She did a wonderful job capturing the feelings within the moment of birth and seeing my son for the first time. She was very discrete and sensitive to the space for family and doctors. I didn’t even notice her taking pictures. If you are thinking of considering Erin for your birth photographer…DO IT!!!! She is fantastic and you won’t be disappointed.”
“Choosing to work with Erin as my birth photographer was one of the best decisions I made. Erin is warm and inviting, plus has a love for what she does that makes working with her a wonderful experience. The first time I met her, I knew she would do an amazing job with capturing my daughter’s birth – memories I would see in photo form forever. And as I thought, she did an over-and-above job. On the day my daughter was born, Erin was with me and my family for almost 7 hours. She was able to envelope the whole event – even coming into the operating room with me. I will cherish the moments she made stand still now and forever.”
“Erin was a blessing to me and my family. She has a kind heart and is very passionate about what she does. If and when we decide to add to our family, we will be calling Erin once again! She captured moments in our lives that we will never forget, and for that I am so very thankful.”
“I am BEYOND thankful that I had Erin at the birth of our daughter to capture the event. She exceeded my expectations a hundred times over and the images are something I will cherish forever. Erin is passionate about what she does and amazingly gifted. I know some people are on the fence about having a photographer there for their birth but all I can say is – GO FOR IT! ”
