Photography for me is everything. I fell into this career by a fortunate accident. Retrenched and tired of having my life in someone else’s hands. Statistics will tell that only 13% of people worldwide will find the job that they love, I am in that 13%. Photography is my passion. It is what drives me. I believe beyond all doubts that this is my purpose. I strive every day to become better and to push the boundaries. Photography has allowed me to be a part of something bigger, I get to witness milestones and personal events with people who entrust me to capture their memories and allow me to tell their story my way. I believe every photo shoot is a love story, it does not have to be a couples shoot to be that. A baby shoot is because the parent loves that child, a boudoir shoot is reestablishing the love for oneself, even a birthday party is a love story of family and friends sharing their love for that person. No matter what the occasion for a photo shoot, there is a love story behind it. Personally, I am 49 years old, a mother of 4 and a grandmother of 2. I have always been behind the lens capturing their memories and milestones, my children are my love story.

Newborns are so tiny and so perfect. I love to hold a newborn, to smell their newness, their soft velvety skin, how perfectly curly they are, and always in awe at how quickly they grow and change. I am a mum of four rambunctious boys aged 2 through 13. I am also a wife to my love of nearly half my lifetime. I love Jesus. And am so grateful for this beautiful life I have, and the beautiful newborns I regularly get to hold. I am also a mother of a daughter who now resides in Heaven- and so I am all too aware of how fleeting and more importantly, how precious time is. Holding a baby, and getting to capture those beautiful early days with parents, is such a beautiful gift- both for the families I photograph, and for me. Getting to hold their new babies; and feel I have a part in their story, is such a beautiful thing. I live in and work in the beautiful coastal town of Ballito, KZN, South Africa, servicing Ballito, Durban and beyond. My absolute passion of the last 8 years is newborn photography, though I am also a lover of family and child photography; and the craziness of capturing life on the go.
