“Words fail to express my gratitude for the amazing photo shoots you did for us. You made my maternity shoot, baby shower as well as our little one’s new born shoot such an amazing experience! You can pride yourself on your professionalism and sensitivity, as well as the fact that you managed to capture exactly what we wanted! Memories for life.” – Lene & Gerhard Brand, Parents

“For me the essence of a birth photographer is someone passionate about capturing the moments of birth in all its raw beauty. Someone who understands not to disturb the process of labour and to honour what a truly life-changing event birth is. Having worked alongside Alda at a birth, I can say that she is all of that and a phenomenal photographer. She is able to capture the beauty of a woman at her most vulneralble and yet at her most powerful with both sensitivy and skill.” – Lana Petersen, Doula

From Industry Professionals: 

“Beautiful photographic style, effortlessly capturing the raw beauty in special moments,” – Candice ReyneckeEat Play Love

“Alda’s work captures and creates an instant intimate connection with the viewer. It’s the same sensation of wonder and amazement I had as a child paging through illustrated books where every page had a sense of mystery that had to be explored. Her work is the most original thing I’ve seen since Anne Geddes and her images open the doors to a world of imagination.” Thomas Walden, Professional Photographer
