childbirth photography

cinematic live childbirth



docubirth is a sophisticated, emotional documentation of your childbirth, brought to you by Los Angeles-based photographer James Carroll.

Welcome and thank you for visiting my site.  I’m guessing you are here because you have searched for birth photographer, pregnancy photographer or cinematic childbirth video. Hopefully you have enjoyed the journey of pregnancy and now want to secure the precious moments of delivery on film. Each birth has it’s own story. There is so much emotion on this day. What I want to do is capture your story in a sophisticated style using both still and motion photography. At the end, creating a cinematic edited film set to music that your family will treasure forever and that can be shared with friends and family. My ultimate goal is to work closely with you to make sure your vision is captured on this very special day.  I am sure you have several questions.
