I’m a photographer based in Pretoria, South Africa, but I consider myself to be a citizen of the world. I love to travel, explore, make friends, taste new food and experience different cultures.
I have two cats, Riley and Luna, who I love and probably spend too much of my time with. I’m a culture vulture who enjoys all forms of performing arts. My friends and I often find ourselves around a campfire with a guitar floating about, singing songs that echo our high school nostalgia. My happy-place is definitely when I’m out on an adventure, exploring a new place, camera in hand and capturing the people around me, going about their daily routines.
I’m super passionate about body-positivity. Women should love their bodies and be kind to themselves. This is why I love boudoir photography so much. I’ve seen so many ladies feel good, strong and gorgeous after their boudoir session. I absolutely love being part of the journey. A lot of people assume that boudoir is about sexualising women. That’s definitely NOT what my brand is about. My goal is for women to leave my sessions feeling empowered, beautiful and downright magical.
Stories fascinate me! I love to read them, write them, hear them and seeing them unfold. Those who know me will admit that I can spend hours telling stories. This is why I love capturing weddings- I get to tell the unique and precious stories of the amazing couples I meet. My approach to shooting weddings is to document your special day. This means that your photos will consist of real and honest moments. I keep the posing to a minimum and like to keep things as natural as possible. When my couples look back at their wedding photos one day I don’t want them to look at their images and remember how staged and uncomfortable their special day was. I want them to recall unforgettably happy moments and to see joy in every single image.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, feel free to contact me here and I’ll send you a brochure of what my various packages entail. You are also more than welcome to request a free, no-strings-attached consultation if you would like to grab a drink and get to know me better.
I can’t wait to hear from you!
