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...

It was by pure accident that we discovered this section of empty rooftop with its modern architecture, and it wasn't too long before we were also detected by a security guard. 

Anyhow, we managed to sneak in a couple of crackers before we were escorted off site ;-).

A pair of fun-loving personalities, not afraid to be themselves and I'm so excited to shoot their wedding in November!

As the season gradually winds down, as the cooler weather comes in, I am finally fitting in more time to get some work slotted in on my blog.

One of the perks of my job is that I get to know most of the parks and scenic spots in and around Johannesburg, plus I can tell you wholeheartedly that the city offers a great variety of options when it comes to venues to shoot. 

Natasha and MJ chose to have a "country" engagement session.  The weather gods had given us a cloudy day, but they were kind enough to bless us with some fantastic rays of sunlight beaming through the trees.

Here's a quick once-over from their session, whilst I catch up with my mammoth blog backlog - and if you are waiting for your peek ... hang tight, it is definitely on it's way ;-).

It is not everyday that you get asked "Where do you want the plane?".

The one thing that I love about Africa is the weather never disappoints.  
It was  a dapper day filled with puffy clouds, a gorgeous couple,  vintage props, a couple of laughs and a whole lot of adorable images!

Thank you David and Eloise I had a great time photographing you Vintage Plane inspired shoot.

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!
