New Vincent Pallotti Labour Ward proudly displays Love Alda Birth Photography

The very first hospital birth that I photographed was at Vincent Pallotti Hospital, Life Healthcare in Pinelands, Cape Town. I have photographed many beautiful birth stories (both natural and c-section) there since and two of my own three children were born there.  It is therefore a huge honor for me to have some of my birth photography permanently and prominently featured in the newly renovated Magnolia Ward!

Love-Alda-at-VP-1All of the photo’s feature birth stories that actually unfolded at Vincent Pallotti Hospital under the care of its wonderful maternal care staff, gynaecologists and private midwives & doulas.  The newly renovated ward recently opened its doors again to much excitement after a long interim stay in the Acacia Ward downstairs.

Love-Alda-at-VP-2I want to thank the parents featured in these birth stories for the privilege of being part of their birth experience and also for allowing me to share some of their precious memories with other mommies and daddies!

Love Alda Framed Birth Photo Boxes can be ordered as part of all Love Alda Birth Packages.  For bookings contact me at [email protected]

Love Alda Birth Photography is also featured in doctors’ rooms across the Western Cape.  The one below is from Dr. Jacky Searle’s rooms.

Love Alda | Master Birth Photographer | Cape Town

Birth photography is slowly capturing the imagination of South African parents.  As a mother of three & a master birth photographer in Cape Town, my goal is to provide you with breathtaking maternity, birth & newborn imagery to kindle & share memories of a life-changing time that goes by too quickly.

I am a Co-Founder & the Chair Person of the South African Birth Photographers Association, which means I specialise in on-call birth photogpraphy & that I work towards the highest standards & level of integrity.

Although based in Cape Town, I am available for destination births throughout South Africa.

With a heart for the birth environment & a deep respect for the privacy of my clients, I capture those precious first moments at home or at the hospital in a discreet & caring manner. I am also available for maternity, newborn & family sessions.

My Natural & C-Section Birth Packages include:

  • a birth plan
  • a mini nursery shoot
  • on call service
  • recording of labour / moment leading up to birth, the actual birth, as well as first bonding moments via photography & some videography
  • a birth announcement package (custom-designed same-day MMS birth announcement, as well as 20 printed birth announcement postcards)

Due to the on-call nature of birth photography I only take on a limited amount of clients a month, so early booking is recommended.
