Probably the most profound portrait, I have ever created!
Oh my goodness!
Just look what we did yesterday here. GASP!!

Good morning my lovelies 🙂
I often get asked how long I have been doing what I do, as a photographer, I have been in business for 13 years (my lucky number).
I started doing image transformations (images attached) in 2010, completely fell in love with this concept immediately! I saw the value of what I could offer when my first client Chantal (below), burst into tears, when she saw her images for the first time, because she couldn’t believe how gorgeous she actually is.
Unfortunately, just as I got started, I spent 7 months in hospital after my strokes, trying to regain some movement and independence. I lost everything during this time and had to rebuild myself – mostly my mental and emotional health. I took a 3 year sabbatical to pull myself towards myself.
During this time, I invented my business model and studied, studied, how to adapt my new body for what I love most (photographing women) and how to get my business on the go again.
And here I am, doing what I love, wiser and with more love for showing beautiful back to the ladies I am honoured to photograph, thriving in my own little world (despite my challenges).
So, yes, I’ve been doing this for a long time and yes I am the best at what I do 😉
sorry for the long post, felt like chatting today.
Have a beautiful day
Welcome to my photography classes now being offered, I’m super excited to help you grow!
I believe in sharing knowledge, and helping fellow photographers create a sustainable business model, by teaching how I got here myself.
You will learn tips and shortcuts to creating a successful portraiture business, or photography business in general, using my knowledge and experience.
I have over 13 years’ experience in photography, over 20 years experience in business and have successfully made money in most genres, from weddings, maternity, couples, now portraiture and I want to show you how.
My online programme, will address and help in many areas of your business, which I know are a struggle for photographers. It is an interactive platform consisting of mainly online videos, where I will answer your questions, invite speakers, address things like pricing, client communication, branding, marketing, editing etc.
Once you have successfully registered, with which ever monthly option suites you, you will be invited to join my Chats and Tips Facebook page – where all the action takes place.
Details below, otherwise I am available to answer any questions you might have in the meantime. I am so excited about this, you should be too!
Let’s get you thriving….
It’s the last day of 2018 and it’s pouring with rain here, I love it. May it wash away all negativity, fear and doubts, sorrow and tears.
I hope 2019 will be magical, I have a feeling it will be. May the new year bring much love, happiness, joy and smiles. May I continue to grow, spread light and inspire, may my craft tell stories and get better and better.
I always get excited about a new year, although I generally get to bed like at 8 pm lol. Tonight will be no different.
I end this year in heartfelt gratitude to all my ladies who loved my work (and me) and supported my dream, without you my business would not be here. I had a very successful year and I plan to do even better in 2019 :-), my life is blessed and abundant and I truly am in love with every aspect of it.
It’s the last day for my boudoir special today, the link with details are below…
I am doing things differently in 2019 with the goal of tripling my turnover (sounds scary right? But I’m ready – my products, service and pricing have been set in stone – my strategies are in place, and my heart and soul are in the right place – 2019, I am ready for you, I hope you are ready for me!)
May your new year be filled with magic!!!
Oh my goodness, meet Mirja, we did her personal branding session yesterday. Magical Mirja is 69.5 years young!!!
I have not retouched her image here, besides my basic viewing edit. Amazing!
This was a very special session for me, I love, love, love what I do.
Mirja arrived full of smiles and hugs (and I’m a hugger) and told me she feels like she is visiting an old friend. My studio is my home too, although it’s more studio than home, so I guess it would feel comfortable and homey?
I honour our time together and your dynamic, loving, happy presence here. Thank you for supporting my dream and sharing your beauty with me.
I can’t wait to see you again
SIXTY NINE AND A HALF AND EXTRA SASSY!!! I am blown away.
Thank you to my beautiful Merichen for stunning, natural makeup and for all the love you spread here in studio!!
PS, we are doing my studio signature 9 up frame and a portrait album, because existing in photographs is creating legacies and it’s gorgeous
Have a beautiful, happy day
