Behind the lens

Welcome to my world & my passion. My name is Miranda ~ I’m the girl behind the Canon 5D Mark lll.  A lawyer by profession, it wasn’t until after I had my son in December 2008 that I first used a camera on a setting other than auto.

My Journey

I stumbled upon my passion for photography slightly later on in life, after having already dedicated 13 years to studying and practicing law in South Africa.  Shortly after having my son we moved from SA to Den Haag in the Netherlands where I was unable to practice law due to the different legal systems.

Not wanting to get stuck in a rut in a new country I did a photography course in Amsterdam and after that I was absolutely hooked.  I started doing shoots professionally and loved being able to capture special moments for people to treasure in the years to come.  Everything I see through my lens is so beautiful.  I truly believe this is what I was born to do & feel so blessed to be able to walk into my studio every single day and love doing what I am doing.

In December 2011 we moved to the UK and settled in Weybridge, Surrey and after the birth of my youngest son in October 2013 I started doing Photography again in the UK where I now specialise in Maternity and Newborn Photography.  In 2015 I did my training in the Art of Newborn Photography with Russ Jackson

 

My Inspiration

“do something which you love & you’ll never work a day in your life”..

Every day I walk into my studio I consider how truly blessed I am to have been able to find something to do which makes me so happy and to be able to do it every single day.

As a single mother of 2 young boys, I know how important it is to freeze those special moments.  My biggest inspiration comes from each and every beautiful person I have the opportunity to take photos of.  I want to give you beautiful artwork from our time together which you can display in your home and treasure for many years!

My Studio

I have a purpose fitted studio at my home in Weybridge, Surrey and am able to offer studio as well as natural outdoor sessions.

Sessions consist of a combination of studio and natural light images although I use soft lighting only for newborn sessions.
