Birth | A behind the scenes look at birth photography | Gauteng Birth Photographer

“Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart
And do not rely on your own insight or understanding.
In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognise Him,
And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].”
Proverbs 3:5-6

Getting to finally show you this “Behind the scenes” of shooting an actual birth has been nothing less than trust and faith. I am super excited to give you a little glimpse into a world that I love so much it sometimes hurt. It’s a world that are still a little bit foreign to some people, but I truly hope that with this different angle, the critics will be able to soak up the inspiring and wonderful thing that is Birth Photography.

I’ve been honoured to work with some of the best in the industry on this project and I would like to thank Heather from Midwives Exclusive for allowing me to shoot this video at her facilities, Natalie from  Creationography for documenting me in front of the lens for a change, Tania from Tania van Twisk for putting the video together so beautifully and then not to forget my brave and fabulous mom Sunica for allowing me to document the birth of her baby.

“Birth is supposed to be a private event a special intimate feeling. I assured him that Sam is super professional, a beautiful curtain taking pictures.” One moment we were two and the next moment a baby cried and we turned into tree. No not magic but a miracle.

There was no hesitation or fear, just sheer determination. And then Alba’s head came out. A few more big pushes, and shoulders and body followed. Alba’s face was looking up at us from under the water, and everything stood still. I was in a complete daze and just heard Karen say, “Take your baby, take your baby”. I lifted Alba out of the water and onto my chest.
