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.

Monday Blues

Hmmmmm.... Monday.... it is after 5pm and today has been crazy busy. 4 boys to run after and a fledgling business that I am trying to get off the ground so to speak. Sometimes this stay at home, working mom gig can get down right overwhelming. This day has flown by and I am sitting here trying to figure out what I have achieved, just as a boy asks for the umpteenth time, those dreaded words, "what's for dinner?" Breath.... Monday.... a day to be dreaded, I think the best way to get through a Monday is to see it as the promise of a new week, new adventures, new opportunities. While my Monday has been frustrating, piles of office work and demanding whiny kids, no photography which is actually what I would rather be doing, it is nearly behind me and then it is Tuesday, aaaaah Tuesday, hopefully all this admin will be a thing of the past and creativity and happiness and joy will prevail. And some good not so grumpy kids would be nice too .... too much to ask for?

how I wish I felt right now... carefree

Have a fabulous productive and happy week all.

Love Janet x
