The birth of a child is a moment unique in the life of a couple. Both parents are usually divided between emotions and euphoria, during this short moment that will forever mark their memory. Generally, the dad or someone around him immortalizes the moment by taking pictures of the mother with her child in her arms. But our artist of the day decided to do things differently ...
Native New York, Megan Mattiuzzo is a photographer who wanted to immortalize herself the birth of her child. She then took the initiative to take a picture of her own delivery and the first moments of his son's life to make the moment even more unique. If the idea may shock some people, who may be left wondering how a photographer can exercise his profession (and his passion) while she is giving birth, Megan Mattiuzzo wanted to express his point of view and his desire to capture the birth of his son from this very singular angle:
I am a wedding photographer and I am used to capturing unique moments that take place once in a lifetime. So when I found out I was pregnant, I knew I wanted to capture my son's first breath, when I first saw his face. I was surprised by the doctor's reaction because many people told me that I was crazy to think that I could take a picture while screaming in pain.
Anyway, the D-day, Megan Mattiuzzo was ready to immortalize the event. She prepared her Nikon 5D and set it to the desired shooting settings before giving birth. Professional to the end, the photographer explains that she asked the nurse to turn off the lights in the room and place the spotlight on top of the bed to get a better picture. Then, when it was time for the push, she explained that her camera was resting on her belly to allow him to shoot quickly. An initiative unusual and respondent on the part of this photographer accustomed to capture the emotions ... who also wanted to be at the forefront of his delivery.
