Capturing Endless Love: Mothers Immortalize the Beauty of Their Precious Children Through Photography, Spreading Joy Worldwide.

In celebration of Mother’s Day, let’s explore photographs that capture the precious moments mothers strive to share with the world, showcasing their little angels.

Giving birth is a simultaneously painful and wonderful experience. Each moment of the birthing process holds significance and remains etched in our memories. Nowadays, many families choose to have a photographer present during childbirth to fully capture these remarkable moments on film.

Annually, the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers (IAPBP) hosts a photo contest to honor the invaluable work of photographers in capturing the cherished moments of birth. In light of the complex circumstances surrounding the epidemic, the IAPBP made the decision to organize the contest in an online format for the year 2020. Photographers participating in the contest will submit their works in specific categories such as labor, birth, postpartum, and birth details.

The winning photograph in this year’s contest is called “A Moment of Silence” and was captured by photographer Jessica Vink from the Netherlands.
In addition to the regular categories, the International Association of Professional Birth Photographers (IAPBP) introduced a new category this year called “48 hours postpartum.” This category focuses on documenting the early moments of a baby’s life, excluding the labor and delivery process.
Liz Cook, the director of IAPBP, expressed her excitement about the growth of the association and the incredible birth photos that their photographers continuously create. She also extended her gratitude to all the participants, especially the families who generously shared their beautiful and intimate birth moments with the world.
The jury selected the first prize winners in each category based on their exceptional abilities to capture the emotions and essence of the birth process.
