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...

I will be shooting these two, my last wedding of 2014, on Monday. It has been a busy year!

Still a few weddings that need to be posted up here, but in the meantime to break the silence on this blog, a single image from a recent 1 year old shoot. Isn't he gorgeous.

This is a bit of a tongue-tied post, as I didn't really know what to relay or how to choose my favourite photos.  Even so, I wanted to share some of the extraordinary moments I was lucky enough to bear witness to at this remarkable ceremony.
 
I knew Nicola's mother through work and, at the time way back in September 2013, when she mentioned that she had to book me for her daughter's nuptials, I was somewhat taken aback - more than ever, given the likelihood that her daughter may not take to my style of photography .  This kind of trust is unbelievably humbling, if not pretty terrifying!   When I finally had the chance to personally meet Nicola in February, I knew right off that we would get along fabulously.  
 
The setting for Nicola's and Sean's wedding day was Shepstone Gardens, with its irredeemably magnificent surroundings. 

It was a beautiful, crisp spring day, which was full of sheer delight and laughter - definitely one of my personal favourites.  Thank you so much to both of you for allowing me to capture this very special day.

Dear Andrea, I honestly could not believe for 1 minute that you felt "worried" about taking on the commitment of being wedding photography at my beautiful daughter's wedding. *big smile*. I had admired your work ever since I got my first peak on your blog and knew, without a shadow of doubt, that you would be photographer at the first wedding that came along... and the next and the next. Don't forget, I have 2 more girls, pocket willing, otherwise they just might have to elope.... Once again, a HUUUGE thank you for the absolutely beautiful images that captured our special celebration.

Feeding my unwavering wanderlust, one adventure at a time, I decided that a winter weekend in the unspoilt fishing village of Paternoster would be the idyllic weekend away.  And nothing could've quite prepared us for this perfect, picturesque hamlet - even the blustery gales off the southern Atlantic did little to dampen our spirits.

Paternoster represented a whole weekend without the distractions of urban life (or the boys), surrounded by it's white-washed cottages with blue shutters and thatched roofs - not to mention our own quaint pied-a-terre.  The sheer tranquility of it all certainly resonated with us, and Paternoster is most definitely a town that stole my heart.
