Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it. Everyone is beautiful, but find it hard to see it.
I am a creative portrait and lifestyle photographer who mainly focuses on natural light. I am a mum to an amazing 5 year old daughter and I’ve been photographing my daughter for literally her whole life. She’s a character that exudes confidence, my muse and she’s one of my favourite people to shoot. (No bias). She inspired me to take up photography and I’ve never looked back. Taking photos of my own child REALLY pushed me to be creative. I aim to create a relaxed and comfortable, yet fun environment, so that I can deliver a beautiful collection of images that represents each and every client of mine (especially women)!
I like to be creative with my photography, yet produce timeless images that one will love forever! One thing I’m very fond of is Black and White images. I absolutely love the subtlety of tones that black and white images can have. The creative process with these images is so artistic to say the least hence most images I take are in ‘Monotone’.
I take pictures because the process constantly reminds me to celebrate life and beauty, and the One who created it. I love evoking emotion from people who view my work, and I love capturing the emotion of my subjects through my lens. It’s truly that simple.
One thing about me, I’m a firm believer in complimenting people. If I like something, why not say it out loud to bring some form of joy and a smile to someone else’s face and help them recognize their own beauty. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and I think its a beautiful way to tell a story. You can find the beauty in something that others may or may not see. Photography allows me to show and tell someone how beautiful they are without using words. Not only am I telling them with my camera, but I’m helping them to recognize themselves how incredible they are.
It’s an amazingly rewarding feeling to be able to help show someone how fearfully and wonderfully they were made by a perfect Creator. And if I can do that, what more can I ask for!? I’m merely doing my job. I love what I do and I do what I love. Capturing the moment, the emotion, the action, the client, the memory, the beauty and the purpose of life. I can safely say that I am invested in creating amazing memories and making it an incredible experience.
What do I love shooting the most? Children, women, families, expectant mothers, babies, artists, entrepreneurs and best of all, CRAZY-IN-LOVE couples! I love love! (The meaning of my name is love so ‘Go figure’).. More than 6 years have passed by from first shoots on a smart phone to this day. Many things have changed during this time, but my passion has lived on. Passion for progress and joy of great work and positive feedback.
Before every shoot, I insist to my clients that we not be strangers, as I want to hangout and get to know them so that I can create images that truly compliment them. I know having pictures taken is kind of intimidating (Trust me, I don’t like it either) but I do my best to make it fun. Honestly I’m pretty weird and loud-ish (my laugh says it all), and it definitely comes out when I’m shooting so trust me, it’ll be a good time.
I am continually inspired by the people I photograph and by life’s journeys. I love being part of their story. Photography allows me to go to a place within myself. Its more like therapy for me – my greatest passion and my deepest joy. I cannot imagine my life without my camera. I mean, what is life without art?
