Birth Photography by Keidi Lin | UNISON PHOTO
As glorious as a wedding, birthing is one of the most important and life-changing experiences of our lives. That special day will be filled with so many different moments and emotions from the gentle touch of your partner, the reassuring support from your doula, the humour, the laughter, the tears, the intensity, the quiet and intimate presence, the joy of having your children around anticipating the arrival of their newborn sibling, daddy catching the baby at birth, cutting the umbilical cord and that very precious time of first skin to skin contact. Lots of things are happening, and everything is moving at an unpredictable pace. You want to photograph your birth journey but the last thing you want are shaky and blurry images or having to miss a shot. Let Birth Photographer Keidi Lin of UNISON PHOTO capture it all for you on this beautiful day.
“What I like about photographs is that they capture a moment that’s gone forever, impossible to reproduce.” – Karl Lagerfeld
If your birth partners are trying to capture images, they aren’t able to focus completely on you—or worse yet, they miss the important moments because they got caught up in the incredible emotion of it all. Having a professional photographer at your birth means you can be assured of the quality of the images, not having to worry about having the right equipment and dealing with a low light environment. All the important people at your birth will be included in the photos so that you can remember the experience just as it happened. It helps to take the pressure off your birth partners so they are able to focus on taking care of you so that you can have the birth experience you desire. As your birth unfolds, Keidi will be weaving your birth story, detailing glimpses of both the delicate moments as well as the big ones.
There is no other person who is able to capture all my precious memories as Keidi did. From my first pregnancy to my third one and with each baby birthed and growing.She had not only captured these beautiful precious moments but also chartered her own personal growth along with the growth of our family. One will never go wrong having her as a birth photographer, she is never intrusive and her presence was assuring and comforting even during the most intense moments. Keidi’s work is, as far as I am concerned, ‘the classics of birth photography’ and she is the CS Lewis of birth photography and a woman ahead of her time. A deeply passionate individual who truly cares for birthing mothers and their babies. I would consider having a fourth birth just so I can relive those moments again.Her work has been and will always be a blessing to me and my family and it is a testimony to people who are living to pursue their dreams and that dreams do come true. I will always look at the pictures of my children and their births with such gratitude and fondness in my heart. Thank you Keidi. – Diana Chen Robinson
We had a beautiful set of photos taken by Keidi while I birthed my 3rd baby at home. The shots are simply breathtaking *pun intended*! I relive each moment of the birth through the photos and can only wish I had known her before. Thanks Keidi! – Mythili Pandi
Thank you so much UNISON PHOTO for the gorgeous photos! Keidi Lin is a dream to work with, so relaxed and patient and fun, we just knew that from all the hundreds of photos taken, there would be many, many winners. And there were – for both of our photoshoots, birth and freshborn/family. Although we didn’t have a homebirth and the freedom to have photos taken during the birth as per hospital rules, Keidi managed to capture some amazing moments in the delivery room, like my daughter being born in the caul right after I gave birth standing up and lifting her onto me. It was a fun photoshoot, felt more like a party than a birth! And at home four days later, Keidi took her time to get some beautiful newborn, breastfeeding and daddy-newborn bonding photos, and even some with my very energetic toddler so we could really have some lovely family memories. Excellent job team! xoxo– Sarka Kocicka
Keidi’s love for births shines through in every image she captures. Her attention to detail, and how she sees emotion is amazing. It’s not easy to be there when a mom is in labor, and she makes it look beautiful (as it should be). What a gift she gives these moms as she photographs their newest little additions! – Megan Dougherty
Thank Keidi for capturing the most beautiful photos on my birthing day! Love em! – Alicia Tan
Keidi captured wonderful photographs of my home birth 🙂 worth every penny! – Aized Noor
Awesome birth photographer!!!!! Keidi has a gift of capturing the most beautiful moments.. – Ginny Phang
I’m glad I chose Keidi to take the photos during my birth as the pictures she took came out simply gorgeous. Also the fact that she is a trained doula was a bonus. 🙂 Absolutely no regrets and I would get her to be my birth photographer again if the chance arises. 😀 HIGHLY recommended. – Valerie Chen
Keidi is fantastic! She helped photograph the birth of our third child and captured the moments perfectly! She was there, yet not there. Very calm and unobtrusive. I love her style of photos. Her play on exposure and colour desaturation is just fantastic! It captures the rawness of the moment with a dreamy edge. – Weng Chan
Keidi is awesome! The photos that she took of the birth of our first son are astonishing, we keep going back to look at them and continue to notice more and more each time. During the birth Keidi was very supportive and not intrusive at all. We spent much of the time in dim lit rooms for comfort and feared that this would have a negative impact on the photos! Not a chance!! Keidi was able to weave her magic and we love the results, you would never know! We plan on blowing up and decorating babies room with Keidi’s photos, and have already created a slide show to share with our family and friends! Our heart melts every-time. We love Keidi and would highly recommend her work – 5 stars are not enough! – Beth Lee
Deciding to have a home birth for our 3rd child and hiring Keidi as our birth photographer were among the best decisions we have made. We absolutely love the photographs and it is such a blessing to be able to relive the precious memories over and over again. We only wish we had known Keidi for our first 2 births. – Lie Ying & Ricky
I want to say thank you, thank you, thank you! We had the funnest time doing our bump pictures with Keidi. Not only did she sussed out a fantastic and secluded spot in Hort Park, but also was able to capture every bit of emotions and love that my husband and I have for one another.
If in the future I was to have a second baby, I would definitely engage Keidi again for either bump or birth pictures! – Vanessa & Colin
