Johannesburg Portrait Photographer


You deserve to exist in photographs. Your family and friends will want to have photo of you to look back on

Whether you feel ‘photogenic’ or not, I will help you create some magical portraits. I know you are beautiful, even of you sometimes struggle to see it – so come on in and let me show you how I see you.

Be it family portraits, portraits with your friends, or maybe even some beautiful glamour style portraits, I am here to help you create some incredible photographs you and your loved ones will cherish for decades!

Let’s discuss how you want to be photographed!


What should I expect?

Honestly, to look and feel incredible!!


My make up artist and hair stylist will look after and pamper you first. And then, once your hair and make up is done and you are already feeling incredible we move onto your personalised portrait session. We will work our way through the outfits I helped you pick out and through the different looks we would have spoken about during our consultation. I guide you every step of the way on how to pose and what facial expression we want and ensure you are comfortable and enjoying yourself – every step of the way!

You can do this on your own, or you can bring in friends or family to join you. Or you can do all those options – alone, with family and with friends!

A few days after your portrait session you will come back (or we will meet online) and you will see your stunning pictures and make your selections. You only purchase the photos that you absolutely love.

Why do I choose to empower women through photography?

I see it all too often where moms hide behind the camera capturing their kids every milestone, and capturing their partners with their kids. Or when ladies gain a kg or two and suddenly they hide from the camera (I’ve been there). Or when they simply don’t like how they think they look, so they permanently avoid the camera. It’s a horrible feeling not loving yourself. Not loving how you think you look. 

Showing up to have your photograph taken is intimidating, I know that. But that’s why I am here to help you. To guide you every step of the way. And show you what it feels like to stand in front of a camera and slowly fall in love with yourself, and feel more and more empowered with every moment that passes. And then, to get to see a whole collection of photographs of yourself that you absolutely love. 

I see the way it shifts you ladies. And I want to do this for each of you.

So come and be vulnerable with me, and let me help you not just exist in photos. But exist in photos of yourself that you love! 


How Portrait Sessions Work

You are going to feel incredible!


We will meet either in person or on zoom and we will plan out your personalised portrait session. 

I will answer all your questions, help you pick out your outfits, discuss who you might want to join you for the shoot. And I will learn all about how you want to be photographed so that this portrait session turns into an unforgettable experience for you. Soon after your consultation you will also get our client guide and tips so that you know exactly how you can prepare for your session. 


My professional hair stylist and make up artist will join us on the day of your session to help you have the style of camera-ready, custom make-up you want. You get to choose how much or how little make up you want and how glam or natural you want your hair and make up to be.

MUST DO: Plan a fun evening out – because not only are you going to look stunning, but you are going to feel it too! Grab your girlfriends or your partner, and go treat yourself to a night out!


We will spend up to 3 hours together, either in studio or at a location of your choice, photographing you and creating a range of incredible photographs – that you LOVE.

You have absolutely nothing to worry about – I have heard every objection, and I can assure you I have got you covered!


About a week after your photo session you will be invited back to my studio where I will show you your incredible portraits! 

We will go through your photos and choose your favourites – what you buy is totally up to you!

Here you will also have the option to add additional products onto your purchase, such as beautiful wall art, albums or folio boxes.

“Fun and Awesome photographer. Great to work with. Worked out well to have our engagement shoot before so one can see how she operates and what to expect when the big day happens. She goes the extra mile for you”

“There are definitely points in time that need to be marked – my husband and I have been married for 5 years and our fur babies are a big part of that. In comes Tamryn. After my sister handed a package for us to use with Tamryn, we were off and what a memorable experience. From beginning to end – professionalism, personalism and fun was had by all. Genuinely, if you are looking for someone to trust with capturing your marked moments – look no further. ?
