Natalie Gornall

I am a self-taught professional birth photographer based in Johannesburg. I qualified with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree in Pharmacology in 2007, and thereafter pursued a career in the pharmaceutical industry. After a family move to Cape Town, I decided to pursue my passion in photography and art. Births were always a love of mine but it was only when I moved back to Johannesburg in 2014 that I started my Birth Photography journey as well as completed my Birth Doula certification.

I focus primarily on both natural and caesarean Birth Photography however I do also offer Newborn and Family sessions. My aim is to empower birthing women by showing them their absolute strength and power by providing them with beautiful and tasteful birth imagery.


BLM Photography

Bronwyn Mostert

Hi. BLM Photography was born in 2010 and I’ve been photographing newborns, babies and families ever since.

It was a dream of mine to photograph births as we absolutely treasure the photos that we have of our two boys when they were born.

I have worked in the hospital environment photographing newborns in the maternity ward, nursery and NNICU and added the incredible offering of birth photography to my business 2 years ago. Each and every birth has been unique and special and I feel so honoured to be able to document my clients’ birth stories through beautiful photos.

Birth photos are raw….raw with emotion – anticipation, expectation, courage, strength, relief and joy. My documentary and classic style of photography records them all with a special focus on the relationships of all those involved. I love the interaction between mommies and daddies-to-be, their care givers and especially with the little baby once it arrives and they get to know each other.

This is what makes birth photography so special and birth stories told through images so moving.

Hey there I am Lerissa from Lerissa Kemp Photography. I am the proud mother of a beautiful 4 year old daughter. Alyssa and we are based in the Eastrand but I photograph all over sunny South Africa. I started off as a family photographer and photographed my first birth in January 2015 and it’s a moment I will never forget.

I have since photographed all types of births from water to cesarean, surrogate and even sensitive births, it’s a passion I hold dear to my heart and I’m truly blessed to be able to do what I love.


Sweet Honey Photography

I know that photography is what I live to do, my heart tells me so every day. I enjoy the way that love lights up a parents’ eyes as they connect with their baby. I create authentic images that sparkle.

Birth photography is highly specialised, requiring an understanding of hospitals and births, as well as the ability to work with mom and dad in the hospital setting.
I enjoy getting caught up in the excitement of your birth as we plan and prepare for one of the biggest events in your life!
In addition to birth photography I am known for my work with:
• maternity photo shoots and
• newborn photo shoots.
I use only the very best photographic equipment. The parents I work with tell me they absolutely loved their session and cherish their photo’s.
Have a look at my website to see some of my work…. moments what will now last forever!
