About Me

I am a mother of three boys (three boys, being punished for my sins!) and have been a fan of photography for years. I started shooting weddings seriously about five years ago. With the arrival of my twins, I decided to reduce my working hours in order to spend more time at home with my boys. Using photography to make up for the loss of income was a natural progression.

This is where you will be able to catch regular excerpts of what I am up to...

We are one week into September.  How did that happen? 


Well, August was insane.  Amongst everything else, it also happened to be the month we had to enrol Oliver into school. (Yep, big school next year). 


Finding a decent government school in our area proved to be a rather time-consuming and nerve-wracking exercise!  Fingers crossed, however, we will finally get him into our school of choice.


I found a spare few minutes, (that statement in itself is incredible), so I thought I would share:


This image of Julian was rewarded 3rd place in the Portraits category of the African Photographic Awards, announced two weeks ago.  I have been oblivious to this, as I was unable to attend the awards evening. So, a little happy dance in celebration of the belated news.

Absolutely stunning Andrea.
I know this nominated last year in the Photographer of Year 2009 in the UK as well.
You are worth every gram of talent that you snap through your lens.
God Bless and well done. My money is on a Gold next year!

Last week I was especially fortunate to host a second workshop with Dror and, on that note, I’d like to extend my many thanks to all 25 participants and our Rockstar, who attended Re.Invent II at Forum Homini.


To be totally honest, I was yet again a nervous wreck, but, after the first few questions my nerves seemed to settle.


Here’s my shot from the day, but, from what I’ve seen coming in for critique, the participants’ images blow mine to smithereens.

Fourteen maties arrived. They scavenged the food, found the treasure, broke the piƱata and sailed away. Aaaargh!

Captain Oliver thoroughly enjoyed his pirate party on Saturday.

The grass is still brown, but I found a few spring blossoms in my garden this morning, that with the sweet smell of Jasmine, made my heart flutter.

Summer (and colour) is on it's way.

It's been a whirlpool couple of weeks around here. Too many things going on; playing catch-up and, quite simply, just not enough time.


I am in need of simplicity, rest and revitalisation. . . a short break from my daily obligations.


The studio will be closed from the 7th August - 12th August 2010.

(All emails and phonecalls will be answered on my return)
