About Me

Hi I’m Mareli!

I am a mom, a wife and a very passionate birth and lifestyle photographer, based in Cape Town, South Africa.

I am originally from a Kalahari farm near Upington!

My lifestyle photography journey started full-time in 2016 and I fell in love with birth photography after the birth of my eldest daughter.

I am a complete birth junkie and love all things raw, real and true.

My photography style is airy, full of colour and olive greens.
I am also a lover of LIGHT! Pretty natural lighting is always a winner in my books.

I am professionally registered with SABPA and I have worked with different hospitals and healthcare providers to document your baby’s birth in a non- intrusive and photo journalistic way.

When I am not busy attending a birth, you can find me capturing product photography or beautiful lifestyle and “In the Box” photo moments.

I am the first professional in Cape Town, South Africa, to offer “In the Box” photo sessions YEAR ROUND! Each composite image is hand crafted and digitally painted to ensure that each image is unique.

I am honored to capture these precious moments for the sweet families I get to work with.

Because, these are the moments that make life great. Come celebrate life with me! xx
