Hi, and welcome to my website.


Agape- often translated as unconditional love which ties in with the love I have for my family, God and the art of photography. I believe wholeheartedly that this is my gift from God.

South African born, my life journey led me to extraordinary places one of which is now my home, New Zealand. Here my husband and I decided to settle and start our family. I have a beautiful daughter and two very active twin boys.

The love of photography has been a part of me since I can remember! My grandfathers old Imperial Reflex camera was my first "toy" my inspiration.

Through the years I have grown and come to learn there is more to photography than what meets the eye.... It has always given me so much as a person.. it is truly a journey paved with the most wonderful experiences. Through my lens I have seen love, I have seen 10 perfect little toes and the most perfect little smiles, I have seen families reunite, making lasting memories. This is not my career, this is my life and my gift back to everyone who I photograph.
