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...

From a client perspective Winter isn't traditionally considered to be the best time for a shoot, but from where I'm sitting it's by far the optimal season of the year.  

I truly relish shooting in the cooler months, as there's something really yummy about how the sun's radiance adds a gentle drama and tone to any theme and setting.   

Melissa and Matt, and let me not forget their beautiful dog, Bella, booked their engagement shoot in the chilly month of July and although Bella was more interested in scurrying around, than in posing for photographs, I was thrilled with the mellow lighting and the wonderful images of our two legged models.

So looking forward to your wedding in September!

I love it when my clients come up with unique and creative ideas for their photos! 

I take no credit for the "African" maternity theme, thank you "M" for the inspiration and permission for me to post these.

A random ramble this afternoon:


I am busy updating my website at the moment and spent the entire morning going through all the weddings I've shot; blindly searching for "Award Winning Wedding Photographs" that could be used for my new portfolio section.


In my quest I can across this image from Kath and Craig's intimate ceremony. Well to be perfectly honest, I am not sure whether it would actually win any awards, but again that's very much beside the point, as that isn't my primary objective at all. In my view it has nothing whatsoever to do with any accolades or compliment, not by a long shot.


To me, it's everything about handing over moments especially and precisely like this.

Nothing more and nothing less.

Not only is it so very rewarding to be able to photograph family portraits,  it's also incredibly uplifting to capture such precious moments as everlasting memories. 

I loved photographing Luka.    So full of energy, who made me:   Earn.    Each.    And.    Every.   Image ;-).  

I think I managed to catch the essence of his happy little, actually re-edit, rather tall soul.

Is that tongue of concentration not the cutest thing?

Nothing like the bush to recharge the soul and make one realise how magnificent nature actually is. 

Hubby and I were fortunate enough to get some R&R at Elephant Rock Private Safari Lodge.
