A passion. That is what it is all about! A passion for memories, for beauty and for art…Nothing gives me more pleasure than capturing a special moment and knowing that it will be treasured forever.  I want to help create memories that are beautiful to look at and can proudly be shown off.

I spend as much time contemplating the way I’d like to edit your images as I do planning the initial shot.   The initial image captures the essence, and editing enhances it.  I’m glad that my background in graphic art can assist me in creating what I envision in my mind.

A bit about my life away from the lens:

I’m married to a great guy who proudly runs his own business. We have a little 1-year-old boy, who is super cute (and one of the most photographed little ones I know! LOL) and two crazy fur kids – who always manages to make us smile. When I’m not creating photographic images, I’m painting, reading about science (yes – I’m a bit of a geek that way) or doing something creative.

Please feel free to drop me a mail and ask me anything you may be pondering or just a comment if you like – I love to get feedback!

Please enjoy browsing the site. :-)

Warm Regards,

Astrid Nel
