Megan Hancock


Megan is a Durban photographer who specialises in creative, non-traditional and contemporary portraiture of maternity, newborns, babies and children.

She is passionate about creating images that will tug at your heart and bring a smile to your face each and every time you see them.

Capturing the very essence of a newborn or a child’s genuine expression and natural beauty is not only extraordinarily difficult, but it requires a bit of patience and creativity.


Megan began her successful photography business 10 years ago, following an 8 year career in Neuro-Physiotherapy. This has allowed her to use her extensive knowledge of the human body in facilitating specific movement and development patterns in a newborn when positioning them as well as transitioning them from one pose to the next. This has helped ensure the utmost safety during a newborn session, making a baby comfortable at all times and putting the parents minds at ease that their baby is in safe hands.

Megan has won multiple awards including Best Newborn Photographer for 2018 in the Admired in Africa awards as well as 2nd place winner overall for Photographer of the year. She has won several awards in The Guild of Photographers based in the UK as well as Digital or Not – Fine Art Photography, a social media page for international photographers. She has also had numerous images chosen to feature on the front cover of Child Magazine.

Megan has received training from some of the top international newborn photographers as well as attended newborn photography workshops and has received online training in a wide variety of photography topics.
