About Tilanie …

I am a portrait and lifestyle photographer in Durban, South Africa.  I took up photography in 2011 because of my love for being creative, doing scrapbooking (and always looking for stunning photographs to use) and seeing the incredible images my husband (long-time photographer) creates.

I truly love all genres of photography and have expanded my repertoire over the years as new opportunities arise and as I am growing as a photographer and as a person.

I photograph families, children, pets, events, and parties and also do a lot of corporate photography, including headshots, events, branding and lifestyle images.

My true enjoyment comes when I organize themed shoots, whether it is Cake Smash sessions, Splatter Paint, Fishing, or a Lemonade Stand … oh too many to mention. It gives me an opportunity to be really creative and clients just love it!

I love dogs! So for the last 3 years, I’ve been photographing adorable little puppies and some adult dogs for Puppy SOS, helping them to make the little fur-kids look all pretty for their potential new parents. And in the process, I get a regular dose of cuddles and sloppy kisses. So yes, pets are more than welcome at any session.

My family is my greatest passion and I love taking photos of my gorgeous daughter, but it is becoming trickier now that she decides if she wants me to or not… but when it happens the result is normally awesome and a lot of fun!
