Feature Session - Elsje

“Everything is within your power, and your power is within you.” ― Janice Trachtman

Elsje and I go way back. When I first started my photography journey after University, Elsje was one of my very first clients. I was thrilled when she booked me again last December for a portrait session - her birthday gift to herself.

She sent through some reference images that reflected what she wanted to portray: "36 and still feeling FAB" was her message to me. Stepping in front of the camera isn't always easy, but it's my goal to make everyone who comes through my door feel completely at ease and trust in the process.

Once again Jeanne-Kay from Rose Serene did an impeccable job with Elsje's make-up.

Here are a few more from our session:

I absolutely love sessions like Elsje's. To see women embrace their strength and beauty and allow me to bring that to life through my lens gives me the greatest joy. There's a story to be told for everyone, which is why I offer a tailored portrait service that is as individual as you are.

Whatever your story, I look forward to telling it.

How do you dream of being photographed? Contact me and let's plan your dream session.
