Moments of Birth | A Tribute to South African Parents

“We can differ in colour, race, beliefs, gender, age and culture, but our reaction to a new life is fundamentally the same – one of awe.” – Alda Smith, Love Alda Birth & Maternal Photography

I have often said that birth photography is not just about the moment of birth.  It should tell an entire story of love and connection and provide timeless ties to your baby’s birth.

I truly believe that those first memories & stories of love and connection are the most treasured heirloom we can give our children.

I summarise birth photography as follows:

“Birth photographs should in my opinion not be perfectly posed pictures. Instead it should provide parents, children and family with timeless ties to the emotions, feelings and physical surroundings at the moment a new life force entered their reality – a window to the loving souls of a mother, a father, a brother, a sister or a grandparent at first sight. How they looked. What they wore. It’s about providing families with living, irreplaceable memories of the moments of love, connection and firsts surrounding the birth of a baby.”
