Gold Coast birth photography and videography

Birth is by far one of the most incredible, transformative and powerful things a woman and a family can experience. Nothing compares to growing, birthing and nurturing a new baby and bringing them home for the very first time.

Documenting this stage, this new beginning of life is such a powerful thing and something I absolutely love doing!

As a mama myself to three beautiful children, I totally understand that birth is a very sacred and intimate space. I work in a very unobtrusive and respectful way to capture your most sacred and special moments and this also allows your partner to be fully present with you during the whole experience. I offer both photography and videography options to document your birth.

These are the stories that make us, don’t let them escape.

Meeting the family

A family newborn session





In my packages I will arrive to you when you're around 5-7cm dilated. If you would like me to come earlier or to capture your labor at home prior to heading to the hospital, this is the perfect add-on to a photo or film package.

Pre book a family shoot for the months following your birth and receive a complimentary framed print valued at $300.

This is the perfect add-on if you would like those first moments captured that your family or other children meet your new baby for the first time. I will stay until your family arrive or return the following day when the visit takes place.

Complimentary framed print valued at $350

$300 same day // $500 day after

Gold Coast Family Photographer Bec Zacher

"Bec documented the pregnancy and birth of our baby Luna, and this isn't the kind of recommendation you're expecting.

You see, clicking the buttons on the camera correctly, taking photos in focus, and delivering beautifully-coloured photos is the kind of thing you'd expect from any photographer - but Bec was not only a beautiful, friendly, and helpful presence (especially in the birth suite) but she captured some of the most powerful moments from Luna's birth.

Because she was there I could be in the moment and stay off my phone while Britt gave birth. There's no price I can put on that, thank you Bec." ~ Josh Withers

"We reached out to Bec a few weeks before our baby’s due date. We wanted a videographer to film our first borns birth. Initially we were booked into the birthing centre at GCUH but a few days before our due date we changed our mind & wanted a home birth. Bec was very adaptive to our change and was absolutely amazing on the day. Throughout our home birth we felt she respected our space and helped to create a calm & serene setting. We are absolutely over the moon with how the photos and especially the video turned out.
She is such a talented , creative soul who knew what we wanted for our birth & helped us create that. Thanks so much Bec - we are so grateful for you for capturing the most special day of our lives!!!" ~ Fatima and Croyden


Birth session location

Your birth session can be in your home or at a Gold Coast / Northern NSW Hospital.  I work primarily on the Gold Coast in regards to births so that I can stay near your birthing location.

When do you attend the birth?

As a general guide, I attend when you have reached approximately 6-7cm in dilation and then I stay until your little one arrives and a few hours afterwards. If you would like your labour documented as well, you can add this on to your package.

What do you document at the birth?

This is completely up to you and what you feel comfortable with! We will chat through this and go over everything before the birth so you feel totally supported and I know what your birth wishes are. I have had three children of my own and been present at a number of births so I am very aware of how sacred the birthing space is and will always treat you with total respect and support you however I can.

Image and film delivery

Image only session galleries will be delivered within 2 – 3 weeks of your birth. Film and photo sessions will be delivered within 4 weeks of your birth.  Your images and film will be delivered via a private online gallery.

Session deposit and payment

A session deposit is due to secure your birth date. The remaining balance is due two weeks prior to your birth date. I offer payment plans also to help break up the cost of the session.

What happens if I miss the birth?

Due to the nature of the birth date/time being very unpredictable, if the actual birth is missed, I will attend asap to document post-birth or there is the option of transferring the session to a newborn or family session in the month following the birth.

Book your birth now

If you would like to book in, please get in touch now!

I only take on one birthing session per month so numbers are very limited. It's best to book in your birth well in advance so that I can block out availability around your birth date.
