Nicole Taylor Photography & Birth Photography featured on Good Morning America { Connecticut Birth Photographer }

When GMA contacted me Fathers Day morning, the day after the New York Times Article on birth photography ran  , I was shocked! WOW!  They want to do an  exclusive piece with me on Birth photography !I consulted with my fellow Texas Birth photographers Lynsey of  Lynsey Stone Photography  and  Lyndsay Stradtner of Life In Motion  Photography and founder of the International Association of Professional  Birth Photographers ( which I am proudly a member of ) . They and many others assured me that I could do this and was perfect for it.   GMA contacted ME and well…. it was now my duty  to show them what birth photography REALLY is.

My client Maggie and I sat down with Bianna Golodryga for our interview. My nerves were out of control. I stay behind the camera for a reason. But it went well. I was so proud of Maggie for sharing and  being just as passionate about what I do… as I am.

Then came the day I found out when it was going to air. My nerves started reeling … seeing myself on television , being interviewed ….. the clips leading up to the segment had me even more nervous.Goodness… do I want to sit down with my family and watch this? or avoid it and watch it by myself  ?Then my boys saw a clip with me and got all excited and I knew I had to sit down and watch it with them.  Anticipation killing me….. and then it starts.

“There’s MOMMY!” my boys yell as they  jump up and down and pointing to the screen from excitement ! !

My client , Maggie appears on the screen and starts talking. I feel myself relax.  This is going well………Then they talk about the HIGHEST POSSIBILITY that a birth package could run up to. I need to clarify that THIS is NOT the  base price of what birth photography starts at.( The figure they reference  could include the birth session with a few follow up sessions and products  all rolled into one gigantic package….   ) so please don’t let that scare you off! The cost of birth photography does range  based on  a photographer’s experience and location .

The segment ended and I realized I had been holding my breath. WOW! I thought to myself. I was having a proud moment! That went SO MUCH better then I had been imagining over the past 24 hours.   I have to say I was pretty happy with it ! THANK YOU to EVERYONE that had faith in me for this….

    I liked what I’ve seen on GMA. Now I am interested to shoot baby delivery. If you can tell me the limitations imposed on the photographer in the delivery room, I’d appreciate that. Is it mostly high ISO shoots using the room’s lighting? What about the hospital.
    Thank you for being in the show and opening up another way for photographers to earn extra income.

    Such a great opportunity even if it was a tad jaded in terms of words like “babyrazzi”. What I want to know is how hard was it to photograph he birth with all the other cameras in the room?

    Hi Nicole.

    BEAUTIFUL!! Great job. I think what you’re doing is magnificent. I’m sorry I didn’t have my pregnancies and births photographed.

    Missing you.

    Sweetly,
    Joni
