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...

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.

On this rather blustery Friday afternoon, I've decided to take you on a journey to Dullstroom, where Amy's and Duncan's upmarket farm-style ceremony was held.   

Not being a fan of humdrum routine, I find that one of the most agreeable and rewarding perks of wedding photography is that your "office" miraculously transforms itself with each event - from farms to barns and from private gardens to a boat no less, which is perfect for the wandering photographer that I've become ;-).

Amy and Duncan pronounced their I-Dos at the Silver Sixpence, in Dullstroom.   By any true measure of par-excellence, the Silver Sixpence is an absolutely striking little venue that I hadn't ever set foot in, let alone had the opportunity to photograph.   '

In spite of the occasional drizzle and nip in the air, it was a glorious and carefree day set in the rural heartland of Mpumalanga, where all their guests could enjoy the outdoor games, take in the picturesque scenery and, on the whole, have a pleasurable and entertaining day. 

Thank you so much, Amy and Duncan, for being so easy-going, for enduring the drizzly, cold weather at the end of our shoot and in particular, for making me smile every time I think of you two and your wedding day.

I was tempted to Photoshop out the raindrops on Duncan' jacket - Yes, Í do realize they"have a very close resemblance to bird "blessings" of good luck ;-) but if I eliminated them I would have erased the memory of the rain that fell just after we finished with the Portrait shoot...a memory I would want to keep.

Nothing captures the essences of feminine beauty quite like Boudoir Photography.  I recently had the privilege of doing a  such a shoot and have permission to share this one image with you. 

Thank you "L" - I just love how the rest of your images came out ;-)

As I shoot more and more weddings, I'm becoming increasingly drawn to the uniqueness of each of them.  You could say that up until a few years ago, most weddings were largely ruled by tradition, so it's refreshing to see couples breaking away from customary wedding norms and embarking on new conventions.

Frances and David had their tranquil ceremony in Knysna, and it was simply to be a celebration of their marriage for friends and family that couldn't make it to Knysna.  A really relaxed tribute that I was honoured to capture.
