Grab the tissues. We will just leave this here for you to get all teary eyed over. Cluck, cluck!

The International Association of Professional Birth Photographers is proud to announce the winners of the 2019 Image of the Year Competition.

Winners were chosen on a point system and judged on technicality, emotionality and composition.

Please note: While birth is beautiful, it is also messy and real. You should expect nudity when viewing the entries. Be sure to scroll down to view all of the gorgeous entries from this year.
