I am a professional photographer with over 20 years experience, and specialize in family portraits and boudoir photography.

I am a published co-author of two international books, and have been published in several books worldwide. I have won several awards for both still images and video documentaries.

By utilizing flattering lighting, creative angles, the correct poses and a little digital magic, I strive to bring out the inner goddess in every woman.

Being a woman photographer gives a sense of security and comfort. I do my best to make my clients feel relaxed, pampered, spoiled and beautiful.

I aim to capture emotion, personality and sensuality, while having lots of fun.

The aim ? Capture lasting visual reminders of a moment in time of this precious life.

I have my own home based studio with ample natural light, soft, muted colors and different backgrounds for variety to create romantic, classy and unique images.

I do not discriminate against religious beliefs or sexual orientation

I have devoted my time to capturing images from many different cultures, in a spectacular collection of fine art photographs both underwater and above, driven by the endless quest for the perfect image.

It is impossible for me to be in the ocean all the time so it was quite natural for me to broaden my perspective to on-land and commercial studio photography.

At home in my Cape Town based studio I concentrate on Commercial photography, portraits and special assignments. I am well known for my patience with children and animals.

Hi Danja
Thanks so much for the pictures – they are really lovely.

Thanks again,

Dear Danja!
It (my photo) looks stunning - I cannot believe that is me!
When do you think you would be able to do a family portrait for me? It would have to be on a weekend! Although with photos like yours - you are probably booked until Christmas! Please will you send copies of the others once they are finished - I have never been so excited to see photos of myself!
Thanks again,


Hi Danja!
Just wanted to say thanks for the canvas print, it looks fantastic!

I must say that I am very impressed by the pics. I wasn’t feeling too great & to me it doesn’t show at all. Hooray for Danja – she’s my new hero !

Please check out Danja’s page on facebook and her website
She is truly amazing, she makes you feel comfortable and at home
Even though Zion wasn’t in his smiley mood, she made the best of the situation and got some awesome shots.
I definitely recommend her.
