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.

What an exciting week!

I started studying! I have signed up for a online professional photography course. It is going to be tough, I have no doubt! But I feel like if I want to be the best photographer I can be I need to make sure that I have all the grounding. So the first module hasn't been too difficult... very technical. Lots of understanding all the various pieces of equipment and how they work. A lot of the stuff is not things I think I will ever use in my type of photography but I think it is really important to know them. So that has been fun.

Also this week I got a new computer monitor to make editing images more accurate. What a difference! I can see colours and every little pixel more clearly. While it is not the top of the range monitor I am very happy with the results so far. So hopefully lots of nicely pics coming my way.

And then the most exciting thing that happened this week is I got a new camera body! A beautiful Nikon d750 full frame camera with all its bells and whistles. My little d3300 has served me well but I am so excited to get to know all the functions on the new body which is far more capable. I am just dying to get out there and experiment with it BUT I have been so busy with admin and yesterday was miserable rot weather... but today is Friday and the weekend so picture taking here I come!

I will be doing a shoot in the Jacaranda's this weekend. There is a street down the road from me that has the most beautiful display of Jacaranda trees and I cannot wait to see how it looks as a backdrop. So watch this space I will upload soon soon....

Have a fabulous weekend all xxx
