My main focus is that you have timeless photos that you will cherish for years to come.
I'm very easy going and you can expect lots of laughs together.
Honesty and authenticity are very important to me and I strive to make sure that your photographs actually capture the essence of who you are from every special moment to each fine detail.
I'm Barbara, a South African born and bred natural light photographer based in the Middle East, more specifically, Bahrain.
I am privileged to be able to capture your most important memories and want you to feel assured that your images are in good hands.
I have a Fine Art and Design background with a BTech in Textile Design & Technology (cum laude) from TUT. I've completed a Diploma in Photography (TPI) and also obtained certificates from various courses done at Vega (National College of Photography) in Pretoria.
On a personal level, I'm a mom to Luke, a very busy little five year old explorer, and Isla who is eighteen months old, both who I just love to bits! I've been married since 2009 to a very supportive husband who always puts up with all my craziness.
When I'm not at my desk editing, or out photographing, I like to spend time with family; redecorate my home or work in my garden (although I definitely don't have green thumbs! Between you and me, I've managed to even kill a cactus!).
I am a huge coffee snob; an avid fan of horror movies, and anything based on Marvel Comics.
I started photographing weddings part-time in 2010 and at the end of 2012, I decided to give up my full-time job as a graphic designer to follow my dream and become a full time photographer.
I can't get enough of witnessing and documenting so many special memories
“Oh goodness Barbara, I am speechless.... I could never have imagined such beautiful images, that capture the essence of who we are, and an aesthetic that we both love.”
