{A Little About Me}

Hi there… My name is Montique. I am from South Africa and moved to Australia in 2008 with my hubby (who I have been blessed to be married to since 2010). We have 2 beautiful girls that have brought us more joy and excitement in our lives than we could ever have imagined.

I believe in capturing moments as they happen. My style is natural and vibrant. I love capturing new memories of fresh, little ones as well as connections relationships in families, special occasions such as weddings and celebrations. I am an on-location photographer and I do some directing and posing, but when it comes to children I like to allow them the freedom to be themselves – to explore, laugh, and to let their personalities shine. I view each photograph I take as a gift – a single, captured moment.

I think getting to know your photographer is just as important as getting to know my clients. I don’t want to just show up and snap a few photos of you and your family and never hear from you again. I want to build a relationship with you and your children, so they trust me and remember me. I want pictures to be fun, silly and not something that is stressful. I want to capture the essence of your child and create memories that you are proud to hang on your walls.

My favourite quote is: “Life is too short to be anything but happy. Love deeply, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything with no regrets and forget the past with the exception of what you have learned and remember that everything happens for a reason”.

Although this is my job and business, it is my passion first and I absolutely love the privilege of traveling alongside people in their journeys. The events are special for sure, but I can honestly say that it is the people that I treasure the most.

If I am photographing your engagement shoot, I hope to be there for your wedding, your first baby, all your other babies after that, your 25th wedding anniversary and everything in between. I have built really special and close relationships with my clients and I consider them friends.

I will sometimes chat your ear off at your sessions so be prepared. I sometimes forget that you have only just met me and do sometimes talk like we have been best friends for a long time. (I apologize ahead of time). So, I can’t wait to meet you, and make new friends.
