Cape Town Birth Photographer »

I’ve had the privilege of being featured in the recent issue of Your Pregnancy South Africa Magazine! I’m delighted that they are sharing more real women’s birth stories that represent the many different ways women choose to birth. All photos and the story contributed with permission of the mother. Its a great keepsake to show her daughter one day.

My clients have told me they needed their husband holding their hand and involved, not fumbling with a camera.

The experience of welcoming a child into the world is not just important for the mother, but the father as well. Bonding happens in those first few moments for him too. Often a dad is so overwhelmed with emotion or shock or awe that he forgets to even take out the camera (that was my husband!).

Most mothers prefer that if she’s being attended to post delivery or there’s been an Caesarean, the father stays with the baby. She often misses all these little moments.

I discreetly, quietly, barely speaking a word pay attention to capture his reactions and experiences too. No asking for a pose (unless he wants to) or getting in the way of your private moments. Let him focus on you and the baby. This only happens once in his life. I’ll get the photos.

Baby A is just 6 days new. Her brother 6 years old. I joined this family for a relaxed lifestyle newborn shoot in their home. Mom specifically wanted photos with her two kids so we involved the whole family. Originally this was supposed to be a first-day session, but it was delayed a few days due to her hospital stay so we made it a newborn session. She’s a beauty and welcomed into a lovely family. Here are some images from their session:

All of these babies are just a few hours old.

Most mothers will tell you that even the next day their baby already looks different. Give it a week, and you might already forget what they looked like the first time you saw them. There’s no way to ever get back what they looked like brand new.

Imagine sharing a photo like this by email to family far away or posting it on social networking sites along with your announcement? What if instead of a blurry camera phone shot, this is the first image people see of your baby?

My first-day-of-life and birth packages all include SAME DAY delivery via email of 2-3 high resolution photos perfect for introducing your baby. I’ll get these shots with minimal posing or even touching of your little one. Often they are just held in their father’s arms.

  • Such beautiful memories you’ve given this family!ReplyCancel

  • I have to say, while looking thorguh hundreds of blogs daily, the theme of this blog is different (for all the proper reasons). If you do not mind me asking, what’s the name of this theme or would it be a especially designed affair? It’s significantly better compared to the themes I use for some of my blogs.ReplyCancel

      Hello Balu,
      Thanks for stopping by. You know I have forgotten the name of this theme but I know I got it through prophoto. They have since discontinued it as they only sell so many of a theme to not flood the market. -MReplyCancel
