Hi, I am Chantelle Marais, a photographer, wife, and mother of two gorgeous kids. I am based in Melkbosstrand, Cape Town, specializing in studio maternity, newborn, and Mommy & Me photography.
As a little girl my mother always kept a bunch of photo albums filled with pictures from her youth, her siblings, her wedding, and our grandparents. These photos did not just document our lives and memories but something so precious. They served as a visual record of the love our family shared.
Over the years I was always the one with the camera on hand but it wasn’t until my daughter was born that I found my true calling, newborn photography. I now had a need to document each and every little detail of her life.
I have spent the last 8 years perfecting my craft, training, and working with other wonderful photographers.
I look forward to creating and capturing your beautiful memories.
NEWBORN & MATERNITY
I invite you to allow me to help document your beautiful family’s journey; from the first flutters in your growing tummy to the tiniest of fingers and toes to big slobbery giggles. An investment in preserving your family’s legacy through portraits will be one that is never regretted but cherished for many generations to come.
