Sam and her hubby are amazing!

We did a shoot over Christmas with family from overseas. Sam went the extra mile to make my toddler niece comfortable in front of the camera and her hubby even ventured into the dam waters to get that perfect shot.

They got the photos to us in record time. We now have treasured memories to last a lifetime.

Thanks again!

Quick Version….

Sam is a true creative who studied visual arts and painting under Pieter Millard and fell in love with photography as a teen aged girl.

She love photographing stuff and people, especially people on the beach. Her fun outgoing personality makes her a joy to work with.

Her use of light and angles deliver Product and Real Estate images that sells.

Life is an adventure and I often choose to go left when most people turn right. As an artist my canvas is always full and I get to decide what to leave out.

I love people, and meeting new friends is a pleasure. We all have a story to tell some are at the beginning of the journey, while others are nearing the end.

I fell in love with photography as a teenage girl while studying visual arts; since then it’s been my passion and desire to capture true emotions, the raw essence and soul of those special moments that we treasure.

At age 18 I embarked on a mission to document Africa; a journey that took me almost 4 years. In this gallery of life I have seen light fade from every view, passionate lovers, lonely men, new mothers and senior citizens longing to be young again.

Through my lens I hope to reveal those true moments, passionately, and capture the moments as I see it. To preserve your memory is my honour so that you can relive them all over again.
