Dear Friend,

Thank you so much for visiting my website. I am so happy you are here and would love the opportunity to get to know you a little better! In the meantime, I will share a little bit of my journey.

I am a German-born and South African-raised professional photographer living and working for Blank Canvas in Grand Cayman in the beautiful Cayman Islands. I’m also a soccer mom, a CrossFit addict, an animal lover and an egg connoisseur.

My passion for photography emerged early in childhood. My dad, an enthusiastic hobby photographer, inspired me to pick up the camera at the age of 6. I fondly remember early morning wake-up calls, and together on my dad’s motorbike, we’d explore beautiful destinations and capture the scenery. During high school, I took formal photography classes. Despite my teacher’s advice to pursue a career in photography, I decided against it out of a fear of losing my passion for the hobby.

After 15 years as a Marketing Executive, a move around the globe and now a mother of two, I’ve finally made my life-long passion for photography my full-time career.

One of my favourite things about photography is capturing candid moments that show people's personalities and connection - those little, intimate moments and subtle interactions that tell a person's story so much better than words ever could. I am grateful that I get to do what I love every day and I believe that my passion and commitment shows in my work. I would love the opportunity to create wonderful memories for you and your family here in Grand Cayman!

One thing you will see in my pictures in that I love the people I photograph! Some of them are my friends, but most I have never met before, yet through my photographs I feel like I become a little part of their lives."

Why Hire Me?
I truly enjoy working with people and can easily adapt to any situation, creating a fun and relaxed atmosphere for everyone.

Bonus: As a mom of 2 crazy boys I have become a “pro” at  working with babies & kids and getting them to cooperate even when their parents are ready to give up.

My clients describe me as kind, patient, courteous, and most of all fun to work with. But don't take my word for it - instead read some of the love notes from my clients here.
