Every now and again life makes an unexpected turn. A turn that causes ripple effects in our perfectly planned lives. My unexpected turn came the day I bought my first professional camera. It was only for traveling and blogging purposes, but within months I realised capturing people were my real passion.

I’m  Karoelien, originally from Cape Town South Africa, currently residing in UAE. Photography for me,  is  about  preserving  real,  raw  and  passionate  moments. I have a degree in Jewellery Design and manufacturing, but left my machinery in Cape Town. I decided my camera is a much lighter tool to carry with me and expressing my artistic side.

My second job is being a stay at home mom and spending loads of time with my little boy Luca.  Probable the most photographed baby in Dubai!
