Storytelling has always been a huge part of my life. My father was a photographer, a storyteller and an adventurer - and through his eyes, I learned to look at the world as a place of endless stories.


A freelance career in photography crept up on me. I didn't plan it - it just happened. I am that mom who is always "stalking" her kids with her camera. And then I became that mom, that friend, who was asked to 'take a few pictures' at this event, that party, on family holidays.


Today I juggle motherhood, my passion for photography and my role as marketer for a non-profit community development organisation (Ranyaka) - and I love it.

My happy space is documentary photography. Storytelling at its best.

I'd love to tell your story :)
