Make no mistake, there is STILL so much to capture during cesarean deliveries, and it is still just as much work.
Being allowed into the operating room to document a birth is every birth photographer's hope, and while it is possible sometimes, even if it does not happen, there is STILL so much to capture during the day, and it is still just as much work, if not more! A birth photographer acts as the family's eyes and ears on delivery day, specially a mother's, documenting everything happening in and around the operation room, building up the story and pulling in the pieces that may be forgotten as time passes along.
Despite having a delivery date booked in advance, birth is unpredictable, and these delivery dates often change, so operating on that booked date is not always guaranteed. Regardless of when your delivery date shifts to, your birth photographer is on call for you during the weeks leading up to your delivery.
