Although we could not be there | Cape Town Grandfather shares appreciation for Birth Photography

This letter from Cape Town Grandfather, Joep Joubert, to his first grandchild was so heartwarming to receive.  His gratitude for being able to share in those first moments, even though he could not be there himself meant so much.  This is why I do this.  What an incredible gift to fathers, mothers, grandparents, but ultimately the child who will one day see how much he or she was loved from those very first moments.

Expecting Twins [Leandri & Christiaan] | Cape Town Maternal Photographer

It’s more or less a year ago that I did this maternity shoot for Leandri & Christiaan.  I also had the privilege to capture the birth / first moments of their beautiful twins in January this year and shortly after that did a newborn shoot of the two princesses.

The light at the beach that day was breathtaking, but the love and friendship between this couple is what made me love their images so much that I felt like re-blogging them today, more or less a year later.

I’ve said this before but I think these images proves my thinking on this:  I do not create beauty I simply capture it as it flutters by my lens. People make their own magic.  Read more about Love Alda Maternity session here.
