In her photographs, Carlene Foerester captures the special moments of all stages of childbirth.
Charlene Foerester, a photographer, considers childbirth to be the most significant and unique event. She describes it, among other things, as a powerful, sometimes wild experience that requires courage and has moments of vulnerability – an experience that is unique and different for every woman.
In recent years, she has specialized in maternity photography and been recognized for her efforts. The International Association of Professional Maternity Photographers deemed one of her photos to be among the best maternity photos of 2021 in 2018. This image depicts the moment a baby is born normally. The majesty of nature in a single click.
The photographer recently created an Instagram account where she occasionally posts some of her photographs. Her total number of posts does not exceed 80, but each one is unique and shocking.
The photographs on display at Charlene Foerster Fotografie capture the special moments of all stages of childbirth, including the anticipation, the moment of birth, and the initial embrace. Some are black and white, others are colored, and some are far away while others are nearby.
In the gallery that follows, we have included only those that particularly stood out to us, though they are all certainly worth a look.
