Hi!  I'm Lynsey Stone, the original DFW birth photographer.  I photograph births in the home, hospital or birth center environment all over the DFW metroplex.  I have been doing this for over 8 years resulting in around 300 births attended!  I have been married for 14 years and have 4 children - Riley, 16; Paityn, 12; Naiya, 9 and Eden who is 5.  My family includes several animal lovers, so we also have a gaggle of pets running around and through our house, including cats, dogs, chickens, guinea fowl and domesticated fancy rats!  

Please feel free to browse through the past several years of my work by scrolling, scrolling, scrolling.  If there is something specific you are looking for you can click on the category tab. All of the births I photograph are categorized by their location, as well as by type - cesarean, waterbirth, unassisted...   You can find my MUCH older work on my old blog (the link is in the menu bar!) and if you have questions about how I work or how to book me with please check out the FAQ page.

*Sometimes I have a hard time keeping everything updated here, so if you would like, you can also find me on Facebook at Lynsey Stone Photography - https://www.facebook.com/LynseyStonePhotography  Please become a fan, I love hearing from everyone!* 

 

If you want to see the older posts…

Since I am starting fresh with a fantastic new blog-site I thought I would show a sample of what is on the old blog!  Please don’t forget to check it out if you are thinking of having me photograph your birth ~ there are hundreds of beautiful images over there…

I will keep this post at the top of the page for awhile, so if you are looking for the latest birth shots, you may have to scroll down. :-)

Over the past 10 years I have been asked about everything from herbal baths to birth pools so I thought I would put together a list of some of the products you may have seen and wondered about.  I added a few of my favorite books also, including one for children that I bought for my own family when I was expecting my third child.  I will add to this list as I find appropriate links.

 

Pretty Pushers 100% Cotton Disposable Labor & Delivery Gown

The Pretty Pushers gown is an easy, inexpensive alternative to the standard hospital gown. And the best aspects of these delivery gowns are the openings in all the right places. Many modern labors involve epidurals, monitors, and other IV cords. Women are left disappointed by the traditional labor gowns which allow for none of the above! The Pretty Pushers gown was designed with a halter neck and low-cut back for epidural access. Additionally, there is an opening (with tie closure) at the front of the gown for both the fetal monitor and the mother’s monitor, if needed. Pretty Pushers utilizes as much recycled and recyclable material as possible in their packaging and shipping components. Of course as the company grows, so will their use of modern technology and ideas to lessen even more their impact on the environment. This company holds a strong social commitment, too…All products are 100% Made in America.

Bintiva Peanut Ball, Including a Free Foot Pump, for Labor, Birthing, Physical Therapy, Fitness, and Exercise

This peanut ball is crafted from professional grade materials, and is similar to a standard stability ball. The difference being, that, peanut balls only move back and forth in one direction, versus the stability ball that is multidirectional. This provides more stability and control, and makes it ideal for therapy and rehabilitation use with children or seniors. The unique shape is also favored by midwives, and doulas, for use as a birthing ball.

Frances {Fort Worth Birth Photography}

Sneak peek from Fridays birth!  Sweet baby girl was born almost immediately after mom & dad (and the doula & I) arrived at the Fort Worth Birth Center!  Thank goodness we all left when we did!  This would have been an easy delivery to miss because there just wasn’t much to it!  Rupture of membranes, contractions and baby all within about 1.5 hours!

Elizabeth Love {Fort Worth Birth Photography}

I have a long history of almost missing this mamas births!  With her 1st VBAC I hadn’t even made it out of Granbury when I received word that she was already pushing – and I had left my house after she had had only 1 contraction!  I made it with time to spare thanks to a longer pushing stage. With her 2nd VBAC I again left my house after only 1 contraction and walked in minutes before the birth.  This time I thought I was golden.  The family had moved quite a bit closer to me so I truly thought I would arrive in plenty of time and have an opportunity to take a few more labor pictures than I had been able to before.  I was so wrong.  I received a phone call on the morning of July 30 after 1 contraction, but unlike the previous births, this time she wasn’t sure that “this was really it.”  I went ahead and started driving just to be on the safe side.  Only minutes later the text came through that I had been dreading. “Hurry.”  When I arrived and walked into the bedroom you could already see a bit of little girls head.  Only 3 minutes later, she was born.  Labor had gotten faster, when I didn’t even think it was possible.  20 minutes, followed by the 30 minutes of pushing that saved me.

Kannon {Haslet Birth Photography}

This was the 1st in a string of very quick births towards the middle/end of Summer.  Unfortunately, with this one I was called to come during late afternoon and was caught in rush hour traffic while driving to north Ft Worth.  This speedy delivery was a surprise to everyone – baby was born soon after the midwife and doula arrived, but sadly, before the birth assistant and I made it.  I walked in to a nursing baby and a very proud papa!

Sutton {Argyle Birth Photography}

This mama had a L-O-N-G first labor, so everyone was shocked when she arrived at All About Babies Birth Center this time and was already 9 cm!  Baby Sutton had such a peaceful waterbirth in my favorite room there (birth suite B!)
