Thank you for coming to my little corner of the internet, I hope you like what you have seen so far!
My name is Janine Pretorius. I am a born and bred Free Stater but now call the hustle and bustle of Johannesburg my home. I am a mother, wife, beauty queen, and of course, a photographer. I am currently Mrs. Africa 2022, and I use every aspect of my photography business to grow, learn and reach out to others around me.
When I am not photographing weddings or families I like to spend my time with my husband and son. I also love doing charity work which takes up most of my time.
My photographic journey started in 2008 when I graduated from high school, and after many years of learning, growing, assisting, and second shooting with other photographers, I photographed my first wedding in 2014 and my first family session in 2012.
I left my full-time teaching career at the end of 2019, I am incredibly lucky to be photographing families and weddings full time, since then.
I also have a studio at my home, where I create adorable cake smash sessions and also mini-sessions for every celebration of the year.
Having the opportunity to photograph a session, is something so special and something so incredible. Not only is each session COMPLETELY unique, but I also love the whirlwind of emotions and the little moments going on in-between everything.
I pride myself in the following:
My work is HONEST, RAW, and EMOTIVE. I don't over-edit my images, I don't create Pinterest sessions that another photographer can copy. Your session will be unique and your own.
I love meeting people and would love to tell your story as honestly as possible.
