"Beauty photographed on a soul level" serves as Laetitia's mission statement and creative drive. Her style is classic yet elegant, employing various lighting techniques to achieve the desired outcome. She takes great pride in capturing the true essence of her subjects, ensuring that each client enjoys a seamless and enjoyable experience from start to finish.
Laetitia's journey into photography took an unexpected turn after completing her studies in Pharmacy at North-West University. While pursuing her PhD in Pharmaceutics, she welcomed motherhood into her life and decided to become a stay-at-home mom.
During this time, her passion for photography evolved from a hobby into a soul-enriching pursuit.
After finishing her degree and with the birth of her second child, Laetitia pursued professional photography training with Danie Bester in Centurion. Little did she know that this hobby would eventually grow into a fulfilling career that brought joy to her heart. Settling in the enchanting city of Cape Town with her family, Laetitia now cherishes her role as a busy mom of four and a photographer doing what she loves.
Turning 40 in 2021, Laetitia referred to it as her "40 years of grace" despite facing some challenges. Her gratitude for her journey through life is palpable, and she finds solace in singing praises of the goodness of God with every breath she takes.
With her studio based in Somerset West, Laetitia creates captivating portraits using a combination of lighting setups and backdrops. A dedicated Canon enthusiast, she has been using the Canon 5DIII for the past decade. Her studio is equipped with top-notch Godox and Jinbei lighting strobes, along with Canon speedlights.
Laetitia relies on Camerastuff as her go-to store for camera and lighting equipment, ensuring she has the tools needed to produce stunning imagery that touches the souls of her clients.
