So you want to know a little about the face behind the big camera?

Well this is me…

My name is Yolande (although most of the kids call me lady) and I have been a passionate photographer for over 10 years. I’m considered very loud and have been told my voice has a high pitched annoyance to it which, when you see me in action works PERFECT for my job.

I am very blessed to have a very supportive and loving family – especially my mother! She will cook anything and everything for me, clean for me when I’m sick and is always on call 24/7 when ever I need her.

When I am not in my studio I am with my two gorgeous kiddies, Louis & Edith. My two cheeky bubbas keep me on my toes!! Louie is obsessed with dinosaurs and every day teaches me something new as he is always learning and soaking up as much information as he can about the world. My little Edie is far from the princess I imagined, she is strong and determined and eager to have what she wants when she wants it. As you can imagine, the fights are endless – hahaha

I am extremely caring and patient, (except with computers)  I love to be loud and act silly and probably enjoy playing with toys more than kids do. I love watching movies, especially 90’s and Disney!! I am a person who LOVES routine and ‘clean’ should be my middle name as I am fanatical about it. (thanks Mum)

Having my studio filled with cheeky children, baby giggles and newborn smiles makes me love my job. Capturing all these special moments is what makes my job  amazing and knowing that every family will look back at these moments and remember them forever is what inspires me.

Before starting my own business I was managing two studio’s for local and international companies. I learnt that to be successful, it’s all about the relationships you build with your clients and the experience they have. I am touched that I get to see so many children and families grow and honoured that I get to be a part of capturing these moments as they go by way too fast.

So now you know a little about me and why I love being a photographer. I would love to hear from you and what special moment I can help capture for you and your family.
