Hi there! My name is Minette de Beer, the owner of Marmalade Photography. Thank you for taking the time to browse my site whilst searching for someone to photograph your precious new born, baby or family.
I received my diploma in photography at the National College of Photography. When I completed my theory there, I did not realise what an exciting adventure was lying ahead of me. I did not in my wildest dreams think that my passion would soon become a business.
I absolutely love what I do, and that is putting it mildly! I adore babies and small children – this I realised after I had my first born son, Joshua. I was determined to capture each tiny part of him: from his fuzzy hair down to his little toes. This is where my love for capturing everything that is special about these little miracles began.
From there I have just grown and gained experience as a photographer. I am passionate about my photography and each baby inspire me in a different way. Babies are gifts which are blessed with their own individual personality. It is such a challenge and a blessing for me to capture these specials moments for their loving and excited parents. As a photographer I can only freeze a small moment in time, but this creates a precious memory that parents can treasure forever.
I look forward to meeting you and your precious little baby! My aim is to take beautiful pictures which captures memories that you can treasure for the rest of your life, and one day share with these beautiful babies when they are teenagers or maybe parents themselves.
