“Photography for me started 8 years ago when my youngest was a year old. I loved telling stories with photographs of my three children and documenting their lives through my lens. I soon realised that this was my passion and by looking through the lens I would fall in love with my subjects. I’m self taught and took myself to various workshops around the country, not only to learn but to meet other photographers and learn from them. I fell in love with wedding photography as in only a few hours you get challenged in all sorts of scenarios, you have to deal with every situation with calm and confidence and sometimes you are the only form of guidance to the bride and her bridal party. For my own personal photography I love landscapes and animals, especially horses and black & white photography. I grew up on a Karoo farm and the older I get the more alluring I find these landscapes. I feel very fortunate to be able to take my kids to the farm on holidays and let them just be and learn the simple things in life.
