My name is Anina and I am a portrait photographer based in Pretoria.
I studied photography in 2000 (wow, that seems extremely long ago!) , after that I traveled to many parts of the world – doing photography amongst other things, assisted a fantastic wedding photographer and worked at a photographic studio full time. In 2008 I started my own photography business. Since then I got married and had two most adorable little girls! The last few years have been intense, but I am thankful for the God given opportunity to learn & grow both personally and in my business!
I have loved photos for a very long time. The emotions they evoke. The memories they keep alive. The beauty of life that are often captured by them. Having a family of my own though, has just made all of these things much more valuable. Seeing how quickly my own children and those of my family & friends grow up highlights how fast it all goes.
That brings me to the reason why I am a portrait photographer! My hearts desire is to take captivating, beautiful & real photos of you and the ones you love. I want you to display your photos as art on your walls. For everyone to enjoy & cherish. Both today & in decades from now!
If you are looking for timeless and natural photos captured during a relaxed and enjoyable photo shoot – you have come to the right place! I love shooting couples, singles, families, newborns, maternity and even busy toddlers!
Just a little note from my heart – I have noticed as with many things in life – family photos are often something that you want to do…but don’t end up doing for years…because of many reasons – finances, feeling a bit over weight maybe, too busy, the list goes on. Please – take the time to make an appointment even if it is in 6 months from now. I promise you will be so extremely glad you did!
I hope to hear from you soon! 🙂
