thanks for stopping by.
so here is where i tell you a bit about myself...
i am in love with love.
love stories; people who are in love; possible romances and so on.
my favorite quote is this... “I have for the first time found what I can truly love–I have found you. You are my sympathy–my better self–my good angel–I am bound to you with a strong attachment. I think you good, gifted, lovely: a fervent, a solemn passion is conceived in my heart; it leans to you, draws you to my centre and spring of life, wrap my existence about you–and, kindling in pure, powerful flame, fuses you and me in one.”
~ Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
i am a 30-something mom of two, a full-time photographer, artist and dreamer. my passions include travelling, reading, staring into space, and warm embraces.
right brained, left winged, mostly frazzled, i possess an INFP personality and belong to the Hogwarts House of Slytherin. Of course, you needed to know that.
light makes sense to me. that's probably why i followed the path to photography. i love playing with, searching for and bending rules with natural light. always i strive to avoid the cliche, to be creative and original, to capture for my clients their most precious moments in a unique and truthful way and give them images that they can treasure forever.
connection is important to me; it's something i strive towards and believe in. that is what i want to capture, freeze and hold, forever. those moments of connection, where emotion lives. love inspires me as an artist, this is why i love capturing weddings in particular, as well as lifestyle sessions. photography allows me to savour the things i hold precious in this life..moments, memories, love itself, people...the moments in between...a whispered word, a fleeting glance. photographing people holds a special place in my heart, particularly when emotions are high and moments are big.
my style has been described as creative, natural, fine art and dreamy, a combination of photo-journalistic/ documentary style - capturing the day/event as it unfolds in real and truthful images - and editorial - creatively composed images.
i'm available internationally for destination wedding photography and also locally. mostly i work in and around the Western Cape Winelands, including Paarl, Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Rawsonville, and Durbanville. my main focus is Wedding Photography, but, i am also available for portrait photography, family photoshoots, newborn photography and maternity photography.
i'd love to capture something precious to you.
totsiens, hamba kalhe, good bye
