If you enjoy your job, you will never have to work a day in your life again, so I’ve heard. And that is so very true. This is where my journey starts…
Well, if you’re reading this, you probably want to know a bit more about me and my love for photography. I’m a Pretoria based professional Photographer, specialising in Wedding, Children, Newborn, Maternity, Family and Boudoir Photography. Photography enables me to express what I feel inside. It’s capturing that moment in time, that can never be relived, but can be seen again by looking at a picture. It’s my way of communicating and creating art.
Helen Keller once said that the best and most beautiful things in life cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart. To me, photography is an emotion, captured in time that afterwards, can be felt with the heart. Life happens so fast, like a wedding day that’s just a memory, but thought looking at pictures, you can relive that moment of your special day.
Being a mom of two beautiful little girls, I often forget how quickly they grow, and before you know it, they will be all grown up. Children photography is one of the most important things to do in life. You’ll never have them so small again, but with photos, you can relive the memories of your precious children. I just love taking photos of children and babies. Through my lens I aim to capture the beauty and innocence of our most precious gifts, our children.
Professional photography is not just to take a picture…it is creating an image that evokes an emotional response. Wedding photography is a great example of a special day filled with so many emotions and feelings…love, joy, family, beauty and much more. Even if the day goes by so fast, the memories are captured in my photographs and is all you have left to relive your beautiful day over and over again.
What can you expect from AVZ Photography?
My photography is unique to my style and creativity, but I never forget that each client is different with unique needs and wants. I try to accommodate the client, as client satisfaction is my number one priority.
I use different styles in my photography and make use of props appropriate to the specific photography, but I keep it to the minimum. In the editing process, I take great care to apply just the right effect to evoke that perfect emotion. I pride myself on my editing skills to bring out the best in any image through skillful artistic editing.
All my photography is done on-site, but the client can also decide where the photos must be taken. I have a friendly, warm studio and a lovely Boudoir room with natural light, and to top it all, a lovely big garden, which I mainly use for children and family photography.
I am the quintessential perfectionist – which really is to my clients’ advantage! I take pride in ensuring that every image is not only a quality photograph, but a memory captured for eternity and delivered on time!
“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever…it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything”
