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...

Frankfurt, the city dubbed "Mainhattan" after the skyscrapers dominating the skyline and the river Main flowing through its centre. 

48 hours between my arrival and departure back to Johannesburg, gave me just enough time to get some snapshots of this beautiful 2,000-year-old German city.

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.

It has been a busy year, not that you can tell by the lack of blog post, as Andrea bows her head in shame. Hopefully I will get some posts up in the new year.

It is now time for me to step away from my computer, recharge my batteries and spend some quality time with my family.

Back on the 12th January 2015.

September 20, 2013 // Personal / Travel

Following an unexpected (and tiresome) pit-stop in Bangkok, the remainder of our 13 000km journey felt like an episode from The Amazing Race; involving a continuous chase for our onward connections to reach our final destination. 

Koh Samui airport has to be one of the most mind-blowing airports that I've even been to.   It's essentially an open-aired glorified thatched shed, without a sterile terminal building in sight.

As a first-time visitor to Thailand, I had no expectations at all, so as events slowly unravelled, they were surpassed in leaps and bounds.  Our opulent lodgings were located on a hill, adjacent to an uncrowded beach called Choeng Mon, in the Bay of Siam - a small but magnificent cove with sugar-white sand.  The rippling turquoise water scattered with small fishing boats was the type of scene you'd half imagine as one of those Microsoft screensaver options. 

Our days were spent with the kids skimming stones into the calm sea, or making half-hearted attempts at catching fish in the rock pools, sipping cocktails at the rustic beach huts (the adults, not the midgets), tasting the local Thai cuisine and the most strenuous task was slapping on some sunblock.
 
In a nutshell, our Thailand retreat was JUST PERFECT! 

For those that prefer a quieter Thailand beach holiday, sans the vibrant nightlife scene, Koh Samui is definitely your spot.
