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...

As much as I love and cherish the daily dose of constant mayhem my boys churn out; be it through giggling, loud laughter, chattering, whining and fisticuffs, I also really value MY time - those rare occasions in the course of the evening, when I'm alone and all is quiet and calm.  My time.


It's during this time that I can actually sit in front of my PC, in total peace, going through moments, editing images and getting lost in thought.


Here is one I stumbled on, from last nights editing session.

Our little forest has been fenced off. We now have to resort to leopard crawling under the pallisade fence to sneak into our enchanted forest.

Yes, technically, trespassing. Terrible, I know!  But it is always worth it in the end. An adventure for the boys and sweet images for me!






I almost forgot, Monday is a public holiday in South Africa, so no email or phone from my side ;-).

Another fleeting second captured, which I once again failed to see during my selection for the Blog. It's funny how, when going about the editing process, I eventually get to see all those small moments that do not always immediately catch my eye for the Blog. I seem to be in too much of a hurry when scanning through about 4,000 thumbnail images; missing small, magical instants like this.


I suppose your wedding day is very much like this: so fast, so exciting, so filled with nerves and emotion, it's all over in the blink of an eye. Given the helter-skelter of any marriage day, I reckon you would also tend to miss some of the seemingly lesser significant moments.

I really love how you capture your kids, it's very inspiring and makes me want to shoot my kids all the time (hmmm, that sounded wierd). I've few good ones I took recently, will send them to you a little later.

Keep up the good work.
