I was born in South Africa and grew up in London, England. My passion for photography started many years ago during frequent trips to Cape Town. At that time a friend of mine introduced me to photography, loaned me a camera and from that instant I just “knew” that this is what I wanted to do. I ended up keeping the camera, marrying my friend and twenty eight years later here I am a professional Northern Virginia photographer celebrating over 16 years in business and having photographed nearly 400 weddings!
Apart from photography I love meeting and interacting with people (and pets). Everyone has a story. I find that making that personal connection and forming a relationship with my clients is key to producing beautiful images and memories.
I currently reside in Leesburg, Virginia with my husband, two dogs and a cat. We are located near a park on the Potomac river which provides a wonderful backdrop and setting for portraits.
