Melbourne Birth Photographer | Melbourne B I R T H stories by blackcherry photography

I have 3 babies and at all 3 births I had Donna by my side. Not only is she an amazing photographer and captured all my births beautifully but she is also a calming presence, who helped empower me to trust myself and my body to do what it needed to do. I loved and appreciated Donna’s hands on support through my whole experience, rubbing my back, holding my hand, getting me water, reminding me to breathe my baby out, telling me how amazing I was doing. Her support to not only me but to my husband as well was truely amazing, making sure he had everything he needed, allowing him to take a break, ensure he was supported just as much as me, as it’s his journey as well!
Thank you to Donna for being there for me and allowing me to have you as my rock and being a big part in my birth experiences!

This amazing women is a god send. I’m in the middle of writing my birth story and sharing the amazing experience I had with Donna. After birthing Reuben and having Donna present at his birth, I will forever always hold her images high & proud. That very person behind the lens is everything I needed & more. Her presence, her supportive empowering and calming nature. That Donna voice, the best ‘birthday working mid contraction hand holder’
Donna has bottled up all the incredible emotions and feelings from my birth and given me a lifetime supply of the good stuff.
Now a life long friend I never knew I needed
We love you Donna!

Donna photographed my 3rd and final birth, and 2nd homebirth, with what was an incredibly fast birth, Donna was able to get amazing pictures without getting in my space, or the space of the midwives. Her service is both professional and personal from the first meeting through to delivery of the final photos. Without a doubt if I was ever to have another birth I would have Donna there again, as I won’t be, I’ll just be using her photography services in other ways!!

I have tears in my eyes every time I look at the moments that Donna captured for us. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I booked my birth photography, but what we got was more than just photos. Donna is the most supportive compassionate and caring person I have had the privilege to meet. The experience of having our first child would not have been the same without her, my labour was not an easy one but she helped me through the whole experience. Even the emergency c-section was captured and she was there in recovery to capture our first moments as a family, with a beautiful shining smile on her face even after 25 hours.

Donna is so wonderful! When expecting our first little baby, she was there for us throughout the pregnancy and birth. Not only does she have the patience of an angel (13 hours worth of waiting for baby to make an entrance!) She managed to capture the experience perfectly, showing all of the love and emotions involved. She was exactly who we needed there with us, providing physical and emotional support to both myself and my husband, and even taking over as my support person so hubby could have a rest. One year later Donna captured beautiful family photos for us, and even managed to get stunning and smiling pics of our one year old on a day he was grumpy!
Time goes so quickly, and thanks to Donna I am able to look back and remember the most important moments in my life

I am so incredibly happy with not only how the photos turned out but with the experience as a whole. She was prompt to reply to emails, professional during the shoots and managed to put my husband at ease while getting his photos taken! I cannot wait to book her again in the future for some updated family photos.

Donna is such an amazing photographer and made me feel so beautiful when I was feeling most self conscious. I now happily have the photographs through my house and am reminded of that day and wonderful experience every time I walk past. Thank you for making the experience everything I’d ever wished for! See you for baby #2! xoxox

When we first met you early in our pregnancy, we did not know what it would mean to have anther person sharing such an intimate experience. Now looking back, we don’t know how we could have down it without you.
As each & every one of our plans flew out the window, you were there to support us and no words could ever express our gratitude to you.
The photos you have taken are more beautiful than we ever expected, and will be treasured for the rest of our lives.
