“To me, birth photography is a gift. It is a gift you give to yourself, your child and your posterity. It is absolutely priceless. There are just no words and no amount of money that can compensate for it. There is no other way to preserve those special memories forever, than to have a capable professional birth photographer there to capture it for you” –Rachael Steele {New Life Photojournalist}
