About me

Why photography? Well, after eleven years as a reflexologist and massage therapist, I decided that having an approachable and friendly attitude towards clients and my skill at making them feel relaxed, cherished and in capable hands, could also be put to use capturing the unique personalities of my photography subjects.

My Tambeau Fabric, design collection images, have been featured in House and Leisure, Garden & Home, SA Decor, Joburg’s Darling and Home d-zine but my real passion is getting human and animal subjects to open up in front of the camera to result in natural, heart warming images that show connection, personality and emotion.

“A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people.”
— Annie Leibovitz

My goal, each time I lift my camera to my face and look through the lens, is to find the light within my subject, to reveal their beautiful one-of-a-kind personality through my images to create an emotive and compelling piece of personalised art.  Art that has soul.

People often ask me why it is that I love photographing pets. It’s simple really, I’m animal mad and have been enamoured with furry and feathered creatures ever since I was able to reach out with chubby baby hands, grasp two handfuls of canine fur and plant a drooling kiss on a patient head.

Animals are with us for such a short time, yet leave an indelible mark on our hearts and long after they have passed from this world it is comforting to have an image of their adorable face and unique personality .

Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”
