Behind the lens – Natalie Gornall

Hello!  I am Natalie, a self taught Photographer and a qualified Doula.  Doula work is definitely at my heart.  There is no greater achievement than assisting a Mom through birth.   There is so much fear around birth, and there really need not be!   Birthing women are incredibly powerful.  CSection Moms deserve a medal, there is just no easy way out!  I aim to show you your absolute strength and power during birth.  Through guided support and beautiful imagery, you’ll treasure your birthing moments.

My past self

I graduated from the University of Witwatersrand in 2009, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Physiology and Zoology and an Honours degree in Pharmacology.  Thereafter, I pursued a career in Pharmaceuticals.  After a family move to Cape Town in 2011,  I pursued my passion in art and photography.  In 2012 I fell pregnant and birthed my first daughter and thereafter found myself fascinated by Birth.   Today, I specialise in photographing both natural and caesarean births in Johannesburg and Pretoria.
