Birth Photography is one of the elements of photography I adore. It’s documentary style brings about an emotion in me I can not describe. Being a part of the birth of a baby brings me to tears every time I am lucky enough to witness it. It brings back so many memories of the birth of my own babies, while at the same time reminding me time and again that life is nothing short of a miracle.
In my birth photography sessions I follow a completely documentary style, where I capture moments exactly as they happen. My birth story packages range from the delivery on it’s own to a full story, which includes capturing moments leading up to the birth, the delivery and one hour after the birth of your baby. The package you select is completely up to you, and can be tailor made to suit your needs.
In order to have me at the birth of your baby, you would need to get permission from your gynae, and we would also need to get permissions from the hospital you will be delivering at. Therefore, it would be advisable to book your session two months before the due date so we are able to get all the permissions necessary for photography at the delivery of your baby.
One of the greatest elements of birth photography is that you and your partner can both be fully present at the birth of your baby, and don’t need to worry about taking photos too. It is also means dad is freed up to fully support his partner in the birth of their baby, and he can be a part of those very first bonding moments.
I look forward to hearing from you.

My photography style is natural and lifestyle oriented. I prefer to take an unobtrusive stance in my photography sessions so as to help you feel as at ease as possible, offering guidance where needed, but allowing you to make the moment your own.
