The International Association of Professional Birth Photographers announced today the winners of its annual "Image of the Year Competition." According to the IAPBP website, a panel of judges selected the winners based a point system that measures "technicality, emotionality, and composition." From water births to C-sections, all the contest entries show that despite the different birth plans parents follow, the moment a child comes into the world is beautiful, emotional and indescribable.
