About Me

Hi, I am Janet. I am a mom of 4 boys.  Matthew is 16, Nathan 14, Hayden 12 and Kyle, my baby, is 3.

I remember being in grade 2 (a VERY long time ago) and all I wanted for my birthday was a camera.  I got a Kodak Instamatic wind on camera and man did I take pictures!  Not many were developed, in fact, I still have some of those funny little film cartridges in my draw.  In high school I saved up and bought a 35mm Fuji camera... also a point and shoot... but it was such a prized possession.  I studied teaching which was a passion of mine, I went on to qualify as an Infant Massage Instructor and BabyGym Instructor after my 3rd son was born. This led to me purchasing Mothers & Miracles, a mom and baby workshop, which I ran successfully in the Upper Highway area for a few years. So I am no stranger to working with babies from tiny too tots! Fast forward 25 years and finally I am able to turn my passion for photography and babies into a career that I love.

I am a natural light photographer. I offer both lifestyle photography (which I love), as well as styled portrait photography (which I love!). I have a lovely bright studio space in Kloof, KZN where I love to capture babies, tots and families.  If you would prefer your images to be taken at your home or at a location I do that too!

I look forward to documenting your journey.  Please feel free to browse and if it appeals to you, lets chat.

It really feels like this city has a life of it's own, a soul. I was born in Pretoria but grew up in KZN, for primary school I was in Pinetown outside Durban and then my high school years were spent in Scottburgh, a holiday town on the south coast that every Joburger knows! It was a wonderful province to grow up in. I started my married life and had my first 3 boys in Hillcrest. Oh how I loved Hillcrest! I still feel like it is one of the prettiest places in SA. 5 years ago we relocated to Gauteng. I thought I might die. I missed KZN so much.

I remember looking for a home and waiting outside an estate agent for my husband and the tears rolling down my cheeks. I kept saying to myself, this place is so ugly. It was a very difficult adjustment BUT I had 3 small boys and I had to make a choice to put on my big girl panties and get on with it.

Slowly this place grew on me. At first it was small things... at least it was still South Africa I would tell myself. They call Port Elizabeth the friendly city but Jozi is the friendliest city by far. A melting pot of cultures and backgrounds. I love how Joburg people will say "I live just down the road"... really? And after half an hour of driving you are not there yet! What's up with that? The energy in this place is unreal. The sea air in Durban certainly makes us much more laid back. The term "I will do it just now" has l a real South African meaning in KZN. But in Joburg man, people hustle. Things happen at lightning pace. It's exhilarating. i am excited to go on this photography journey here. I will always miss the beauty of KZN. I follow a few photographers from around Durban on social media and I can't lie and say I don't envy some of the stunning places they get to use as locations for shoots. However I am sure that they envy the pace and vibrancy of Gauteng. The let's just get it done attitude. Thank you Jozi for helping me realise a dream.

Love Janet x
