See Yourself Confident.
Every woman has an obligation not only to herself but to the women in her life to show up in this world as her most confident self. This journey 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. This world needs more feminine input, influence and impact, and confidence is the key to helping women show up in a more significant way.
I’m the go-to girl for Women’s Confidence.
By helping women recognize and cultivate their confidence through my Personal Brand Photography and videography, my online membership site Cafinnate Academy YouTube Channel & online platforms, I hope if nothing else, that a single confident women standing tall offers proof and permission for a wave of women to begin their own confidence crusade.
Confidence is EVERYTHING
This journey of elevating women’s confidence is the culmination of years of observing how women show up in this world – how they choose to exist and express themselves throughout the phases of their lives. I was an insecure impressionable young girl who was always looking for the ‘rule book’ – the 101 of being a confident woman. When my photography career path brought me to an intersection where my observation of women became the most acute it had ever been, I realised the purpose of all those years of feeling ‘less-than’, of knowing that there must be a way to tap into that inherent confidence. So began a personal journey paralleled by a professional one, woven together with the thread of discovering true feminine confidence.
My hope is that each one of us – us the feminine collective – gives ourselves permission to discover and express our most confident self.

This has been a week of major pivots for all of us. As South Africa and the rest of the world goes into full lockdown, those of us who's livelihood is dependent upon us being able to interact in person with our clients and customers find ourselves in a position where...
We currently exist in interesting times and more than ever connection, community, creativity and confidence are required if we're going to make the most of a pretty shit situation. Not only are our businesses and physical well-being at risk, but our mental...
It's like the entire world's population has been dropped in as extra's into some large scale movie production. That's what it feels like to me. Surreal. And if I allow it to, my anxiety will feed on the surrealism with gluttonous delight. Are you the same? So that's...
Abigail is a true professional not just for the quality of her pictures which are outstanding, but also for her attention to detail, her presence and her incredible ability to make you feel at ease and beautiful at the same time. I had the greatest fun during the shoot and love my pictures, which is a first for me! They really stand out on websites, my social profiles and my signature and I constantly receive compliments. I highly recommend that every business professional engages Abby to have their portraits done.
Thank you so much for my profile shots. You made it so easy and fun. I had no idea what to expect but your gentle prompting and encouragement made me feel very comfortable. I really enjoyed it. My photo shoot with you had a profound effect on me in so many ways and has been a turning point in my life. I notice that what you are really giving your clients is confidence and an inner beauty. Thank you for that. You have captured a moment in time that will stay with me forever and propel me into the future with a positive spirit.
I absolutely loved working with Abigail! The session unfolded with ease and joy. Abigail’s calm demeanor and confidence added to the relaxed atmosphere. I was most impressed with the end result as it was a spot-on presentation of the pre-brief and a beautiful and refreshing reflection of who I believe I am. It takes a true artist with a keen eye and deep insight to extricate the essence of their object. So here’s to you, Abigail! You are professional, brilliant and a lovely person to work with. Time spent in your company and in front of your camera lens leaves one with a long-lasting feeling of connection to all that is well, all that is beautiful and all that is balance and harmony.

Being photographed by Abigail K was an incredible experience. Her gentle prompts for posing in certain ways and constant encouragement went a long way. She also has an amazing eye for bringing out your natural beauty in the way she uses lighting and the angles she works with when taking photos.
