Meet Abi
  • Meet Abi

  • When I realised that becoming a photographer was part of my calling. I literally sold my car to buy my first camera! I threw myself head first, with a leap of faith into something that set my soul on fire.
    I'm a passionate person. A hopeless Romantic and a lover of all things beautiful.
    I couldn't live without my animals, sunshine and the big outdoors!
    I have adventurous spirit and my days will not be done until I have explored every remote corner of this earth.

Why Grace?
  • Why Grace?

  • After rising from a difficult childhood and moving back to South Africa after 9 years in England, I was blessed with the opportunity to finally do something I loved. I realised everything that I now had, after everything I had to overcome was simply by the Grace of God.
    Grace is unmerited favour from God
    This opportunity had not come because I had anything handed to me, it was through sacrifice and faith and Gods Grace. I was blessed.

My Philosophy
  • My Philosophy

  • I want my images to have substances. I want to capture a piece of every persons soul, tell a part of their story and journey.
    I want to give every person I photograph a memory that has impacted their lives in such a way that they walk away feeling better about themselves than they ever have. Because EVERY person deserves to feel valued and important.
    I want my images to mean something to everyone I photograph. Whether it be the romance in their love story, the mircale of their baby or the blessing of their family.
