Carlene Forrester captures in her photographs the special moments of all stages of childbirth. Photographer Charlene Forrester considers childbirth to be the most important and special event. Among other things, she describes it as a strong, sometimes ᴡɪʟᴅ experience that requires courage and has moments of ᴠᴜʟɴᴇʀᴀʙɪʟɪᴛʏ – an experience that is different and special for each woman.
In recent years, she has been exclusively engaged in maternity photography and has been awarded for her work. Last year, one of her photos was named one of the best maternity photos of 2021 by the International Association of Professional Maternity Photographers. This photo captures the moment when a baby is born naturally. The absolute wonder of nature in one click.
The photographer recently created an account on Instagram where she publishes some of the photos she takes from time to time. To date, her posts do not exceed 80, but all of them are special and sʜᴏᴄᴋɪɴɢ one by one. The photos that can be seen at Charlene Foerster Fotografie capture the special moments from all stages of childbirth: the waiting, the moment a baby is born in the first embrace. Some are black and white, some in color, some far, and some come closer.
In the gallery that follows, we have collected some that stood out to us, although they are all definitely worth a look.
