I’m passionate about people. Passionate about beautiful photos. And most of all passionate about making memories with people that will reflect their special bond on a photo.
My road didn’t start with photography but it was one of those things that happened with me along the way and once it became part of me it defined me in so many ways.
I started my journey in life in a small Free State town called Petrusburg. My passion after school was nature and I always want to know how things work so I studied B.Sc Biological Sciences. But life had other plans for me. I ended up in the Drakensberg teaching kids about nature and a few years later became a full-time Biology teacher. And this is where my path crossed with photography. The school had their own photography club for the kids and I got involved there. When I held my first second hand camera in my hand and took my first roll of film I knew I found my destiny!
It would be many years though before I felt I was good enough to take my photography passion to the level of a full time business. And that is exactly what I did the past 10 years. I’ve completed a course with distinction with the Photography Institute and kept on learning with online classes. We lived in Dundee, KwaZulu-Natal where I’ve established my business as the one to go to when you needed professional service and high quality photos. Living in a small town meant I got to work in lots of different areas of photography. From pregnancy to newborn to family to school photos and businesses photos. But the one I really enjoyed was my wedding photography.
Our family, my husband and two daughters did a leap of faith earlier this year when an opportunity open up for my husband in Moorreesburg in the beautiful Swartland in the Western Cape.
It is with great excitement that I’m looking forward to this new chapter in our lives. The most beautiful venues and scenery is surrounding me and I can’t wait for wedding couples to trust me with their most precious memories.
Photography is so much more than just beautiful photos. For me it’s the privilege of walking some steps with other people. To become part of their stories and leaving memories to cherish forever. I can not wait to become part of your story!
