I’m more than a girl with a camera. Firstly, I’m a #ConfidenceCrusader. Encouraging a more positive self perception among the feminine collective – one woman at a time, one photo shoot at a time.
Secondly, I’m a #GirlBoss connecting, collaborating with, contributing to & championing other Girl Bosses. #GirlPower
Lastly, I’m a multi-passionate photopreneur. A positive-energy go-getter with pursuits in Whimsical Fine Art Photography, Online Courses, speaking & creative endeavors that light me up and pique my curiosity.
I create to entertain, inspire, transform & empower.
My super power is making my clients feel at ease.
Confidence is EVERYTHING
We all have bouts of low confidence at some point. I’m no different.
Everything I do, for others and for myself, is a lesson in self-love, self-acceptance & self-respect – to get us all to a place where, IN SPITE of our imperfections, we are confident.
It’s a journey.
“And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”Marianne Williamson
On The Personal Side …
I pursue happiness. By choice.
I’m a bunny-hugger who dotes on her cantankerous canine, Beijing.
I’m an over-ripe teenager with a vivid imagination and a naughty laugh. I view life as an ongoing learning journey, consciously choosing to think happy thoughts & consume books of the personal development persuasion.
I’ll die an optimist. I’m easily distrac…oh look – clouds! When I’m in my own space, I’m slightly loud and extrovert. But put me in the middle of a crowd on my own & I’ll quietly observe & analyze.
I choose to follow my bliss and hope to encourage others to do the same.
I have two main personalities – the productive one and the creative one. It’s a never ending battle.
Speaking of different personalities…

About the Studio
My Natural Light Studio
It’s like shooting in your bedroom! My studio is pocket of calm and prettiness, situated in Observatory, a quirky & colourful suburb of Cape Town.
I share the studio with Rose, a dress designer under the label, Molteno Creations.
Working predominantly with natural light and being surrounded by girliness makes the environment a delight and distinctive from traditional photographic studios. You’ll be welcomed by a feeling of calm and the light airiness instantly soothes you into a state of serenity and relaxation.
It’s the kind of space that I look forward to walking into everyday!

From the moment my daughter and I walked into Abigail’s office we felt welcome. We were greeted with warm smiles and a wonderful lady helped do our hair and make up . we had lots of laughs and spent a fantastic mom and daughter morning together. Abigail made us feel like supermodels. Right from the way we needed to pose to the dressing up. As for the final photographs, they were amazing, thank you Abigail for the wonderful experience, I can’t wait to book our next shoot. It will definitely be with you. ~ Lindy
What a treat to be photographed by you – I haven’t had so much fun in a long time! I really felt pampered and looked after, not only during the hair and make up session, but especially by you during the shoot. It was non-threatening, confidence-boosting, funny and totally enjoyable. You really do have an amazing skill in getting the best out of us ordinary folk and making us look and feel like super-models. Thank you Abigail for everything that you put into your work. Your enthusiasm for life is contagious and we see ourselves catching it through your lens. What a blessing. ~ Robyn Young
Thank you, thank you, thank you for the gift of my makeover shoot! As a new mom to 5 month old twins, just getting out of my pj’s everyday is a major feat. So having my hair and make-up done was such a treat. And then your professionalism and guidance during the shoot made me feel like a supermodel. I knew exactly what you wanted from me and you made me feel totally at ease. And the end result … Wow! Thank you for making me feel beautiful and giving me my confidence back. And for inspiring me to get out of my pj’s and make a small effort everyday. Cos that’s sometimes all it takes. ~ Josie van Zyl
