Cape Town Birth Photographer »

Cesarean Section at Panorama Mediclinic {Lily} | Cape Town C-Section Photographer

When Charné contacted me regarding her birth she said she absolutely loved my work and this time around wanted a professional birth photographer. Theirs is a beautiful blended family and this is the first baby born to both parents together. Like many of my clients, there’s more to the story than you first think. They have been through sorrow and loss, so Lily for them is a precious gift. Make sure to watch the video in HD and don’t miss the part when dad gets skin to skin time with Lily.

I shot that portion through the nursery window as I wasn’t allowed in at the time, but I made it work and was sure to capture such incredible bonding moments between father and daughter that Charné would have otherwise missed as she was in recovery at the time. I know especially for moms that are for what ever reason separated from their babies even for 20 minutes, they long to know what they missed. As much as possible, I follow baby for this very reason to capture those irreplaceable first moments. Lily will always look back and see clearly she was beloved from the day she was born.

If you missed it, be sure to see Charné’s maternity session and as always, everything is shared with family permission. My kind thank yous to the kind staff at Panorama Mediclinic and her doctor, Dr. Rosselli.

  • […] I met Charné and her husband at Blouberg beach for their mini-maternity session. The wind was howling, so we drove up the coast a few minutes and tried this beach. Lo and behold it was worse. It was an almost painful sandstorm, the worst I have ever shot in, which is saying alot. The sand was so thick in the air, this actually looks much more like a desert shoot than a beach one. Charné was a champ despite the freezing and horrible conditions yet was unsure if we were getting anything worthwhile. I, on the otherhand, knew exactly what I was seeing in my camera and was loving the look the wind was creating. They were pretty surprised with the finished images. This session pushed my gear to the max, I actually took it in to be serviced the following week just to be sure the sand hadn’t damaged it. Thankfully, Nikon here are top notch in their thoroughness and I was good to keep shooting. Tough conditions are sometimes worth it for beautiful images. And more than anything, I really enjoy working with a couple that 1) love eachother because that kind of magic can’t be photoshopped in and 2) that trust me as their photographer. This couple are now new parents and we captured their daughter’s birth story. […]ReplyCancel
