I'm Robyn Davie,

I'm a big-city Jozi gal who absolutely LOVES running this business - spanning across two cities!

We aim to stand out from the crowd, with our focus on bold, bright and fresh photography, all delivered to you by a top-notch team.

This brand has come a long way since launching in early 2013. Since then we've grown from a one-woman show to an award-winning fourteen-member team, and have documented thousands of photo shoots.

WE ARE FUN, ORGANISED & EFFICIENT

All of our sessions are designed to be easy-going, stress-free and a lot of fun.

We have a quick and simple booking-in system run via email by our lovely office manager Grace, and from initial enquiry to end delivery of product we aim to make each step of the way as seamless as possible.

WE ARE NATURAL LIGHT PHOTOGRAPHERS

This means we use minimal gear, don't shoot in studios, and that our sessions are quick and fun, without the need to constantly adjust lighting and flashes.

01

WE DON'T USE PROPS/SUPPLY WARDROBE

Our focus is on documenting real life - so that newborn baby should look like a baby, not a pumpkin, wrapped up in your arms and not in a scratchy tutu. We cut out the frills, and encourage you to dress in comfy, casual complementary colours and clothes.

03

CITIES

We currently have photographers in Johannesburg and Cape Town -and are more than happy to travel to other locations worldwide.

05

LOCATIONS
We have a couple of fave Joburg outdoor locations for shoots, or can photograph an at-home session at your family home. Chat to Grace for more info.
