I am a South African wedding & lifestyle location photographer living in the Winelands of the Western Cape.
I tend to see life as a series of pictures, beautiful heartfelt moments at every turn and I love to capture them, because blink and that magical fleeting moment passes, perhaps replaced by a new one or sometimes, simply gone. Life moves so fast, we experience so much – we change, our lives take all sorts of turns, we do things, see places, meet people, we make commitments – anticipated occasions come and then slip by all too quickly, friends and family often end up far away, we grow, our kids grow and during all this incredible activity called life, there’s just so much to be grateful for, so much to treasure….
I’m fuelled by the moments and memories which I capture in my images – be they mine, or yours.
I’m someone who loves life, loves the mind-blowing detail even in the little things around me and I’m constantly in awe of all that I see.
I’m passionate about my world, my people, my places and am truly grateful every day for them.
I’m Albie’s right half and he’s more often than not my very solid Left (brain that is!), I’m mom to Alex (our gorgeous feisty gregarious wee man) & Dusky (our precious staffie) – I’m a sister, an aunt, a friend and an in-law to a fabulous family.
Life IS good!
I have always had a passion for documentary, people and travel; this from the very first National Geographic projection we were shown in Class 1 @ St Patricks and further kindled through Art at a very young age and which slowly and surely evolved into photography.
I started with the dream of exploring the world which lead to Tourism. timing in SA wasnt what we’d hoped for to pursue that dream in SA at the time so I travelled. After my returns and a stint in Durban I moved to the Cape in 2008 to study DTP, I then joined what became a very beloved magazine industry for many years – picture edited local glossies and eventually worked on international procurement – all the while being constantly inspired by countless creatives and photographers along the way. Later I reversed roles to a leading local picture agency representing many of the best international photographers out there and busied myself supplying both Media and advertising with cutting edge work but eventually my own creative desires could no longer be ignored and now I can say I’m revelling in following my own creative dreams.
I love what I do and am inspired daily by the simplistic beauty around me in this very real world and am blessed to have the desire, ability and god given talent to photograph it and I look forward to capturing chapters of your story for you!
