I have a range of makeup and photographic services to suit your needs.
As a makeup artist since 2004, I realized just how much woman tend to put themselves down and how hard we are on ourselves. On how we look and how we are perceived by everyone around us.
It has become my passion to show woman, how beautiful they are, without having to use “polyfilla” or to pile on the makeup. Yes, it is true; Beauty does come from the inside, but what also rings true, is: Look Good, Feel Better. When you feel that you look good, you also tend to portray more confidence in everything you do.
If you take and measure and weigh the amount of makeup applied to the face…..it is an unbelievably small amount of product that can make a woman’s eyes sparkle and put that little spring in her step when she knows, she looks amazing.

TRAINING AND SKILLS
Training in Makeup Artistry, Hair Styling and Special Effects at Professional Makeup’s School – Beyond Artistry in Bellville, Cape Town in 2004.
Mostly I work in the Bridal and Photographic industries and have done makeup for hundreds of brides over the years.
I also stay up to date with new product launches and techniques and update my style of makeup and the techniques I use accordingly.
After I graduated school, I finished a diploma in Graphic Design (2000-2002) where I fell in love with photography but never really went into the photographic business.
The more I worked in the Bridal industry and with the photographers, it ignited the passion again.
That’s when I did an online photography course and realized that Practice is the only thing that makes perfect. I had the facts and I just had to shoot as much as I can.
There are so many genres of photography and so many subjects to choose from, but I fell in love with Newborns, Babies, Families, Pregnancy and my newest passion Glamour Photography.
What is a Glamour Photo to me? Well, I think it is different to a lot of people, but for me, it’s a beautiful photo, showing off who YOU are. Showing your smile, the twinkle in your eye, your curves, basically, just showing everyone YOUR beauty, where you are in life, NOW.
Whether you are Young – Sweet 16; Graduating School or University, Turning 21, You and your Closest Friends, Getting a bit older, Getting married and coming into yourself, Having a baby and being a Mom and the little bit of tummy that comes with that sometimes. Everything is a part of life, and I want to capture that for every woman. Every part of your life is an achievement. Even when you start moving towards 50 or 60 or even 80, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! I want to show woman that. Even if you don’t think so yourself, I want to make you a believer, in yourself, not in what Photoshop can do for your! But in how Amazing You are at all stages of your life.
How wonderful wouldn’t it be, to have a beautiful, Generational photo, of a Grandmother, Her Daughters and Grand-daughters. The Cycle of Life.
In my Photography, I want to give you that special moment caught on “film”. Something that is so precious, should be captured.
With all the photo packages, there are also an option to have your makeup and hairstyling done in my studio.
But with the Glamour shoot, it is all included, to make sure, we enhance your unique features.
The Glamour shoot is a Pamper day for you and if you choose, your partners in crime for the shoot. Invite your friends or your sister, or your Mom and Gran and daughters and come and have fun.
