Certificate in Newborn Photography Qualification


Elrinda Engelbrecht


Belly Angels Photography was started in 2019. The founder and owner is Elrinda Engelbrecht, a trained and qualified Photographer. She is also a qualified Newborn Photographer (certified through The Academy of Newborn Photography) and a registered Birth Photographer with The South African Birth Photographers Association since March 2019.

Elrinda is serious about the safety and well-being of her tiny newborn clients, that’s why she studied through The Academy of Newborn Photography which is based in Australia. She is the first South African who graduated from The Academy of Newborn Photography.

She is also certified in Newborn Photography Safety through AANPS (American Association of Newborn Photography Safety).

Belly Angels Photography got its name after Elrinda became an aunt to a beautiful newborn baby in 2018. Her nephew is the reason why she is changing her focus to Newborn and Birth. He gave her a new perspective on human-life and the beauty thereof. She sees newborn babies as precious angels from a mother’s loving belly.

Her Newborn Photography focuses to present parents with an extraordinary experience in design, photography and storytelling, where the safety of their newborn babies come first in her studio.

The other component of Belly Angels Photography is ‘Birth Photography’. This component focuses to document each moment before, during and after Birth whether in hospitals or maternity clinics. 

Belly Angels Photography is based in Johannesburg, South Africa.
