Welcome

Welcome to our New LIFE Studio website.  Previously called Fine Art Studio.  We are a photographic studio situated in Sonstraal Heights, Durbanville.

We celebrate NEW LIFE by capturing NEWBORN, BABY, MATERNITY & FAMILY images. The studio is designed and planned around the comfort and useability of the photographer and the client. There are a separate baby feeding room, dressing room, small bathroom and kitchenette with a large studio space to create beautiful images.

New LIFE Studio is a company where you as a mother can find a photographer to capture those very special newborn images and also some other great companies that will offer you great services or products to make life a little easier and better for you and your child. 


Rumé | 9 days old

 Although Charl was suppose to do this shoot, he suddenly developed the very nasty tummy bug that was going around! Luckily this is where it comes in very handy that husband and wife work together and that we do the same job! So Bea said it was fine if I, Tiana, just do the shoot for them.

This is such a lovely family and I just loved Rumé's chubby cheeks and her dad's very special tatoo - Rumé's first heartbeat!!

I hope you enjoy the photos with me!

Sexy Maternity shoot

 What a hot mommy and daddy to-be! It was my first time doing a shoot like this Calvin Klein inspired look. But I just loved every second of it and am in love with the outcome! I hope you enjoy the photos with me!

Newborn shoot | Malan (13 days old)


 Dit is altyd lekker om vorige troue kliente weer te sien.  Lekker om te sien dat dit goed gaan, maar verseker NOG beter om hul te sien met hul nuwe babatjie :-)  Dit was so lekker gewees om Annalize en Deon weer te sien. Hulle het die mooiste seuntjie, Malan.  Ek is so opgewonde saam met hulle en weet sommer dat hulle die beste ouers ooit gaan wees.

Newborn - Marné (4 days old)

I just loved photographing this little princess! She was a dream model! May she bring her parents so much laughter and happiness and may God protect her and bless her where ever she goes.

Maternity Lifestyle shoot in studio

It was so nice to do this fun maternity shoot for Madreez & Herman. I cannot wait to meet their little price some time very soon!

Baby shoot | André (7 months)


It was so great to see Andre and Lezanne again with their little boy.  Always fantastic to see that my old clients are happy and blessed.  They came to the studio for a few family photos and some photos of little Andre.  He is really such a cute and happy baby boy.  
We managed to get some awesome photos of this little man.  Lezanne also made the booking for the shoot at exactly the right age, just when baby Andre could sit by himself. 

Coming soon ... Anthonij

Preparing for a second child is a very exciting time. Simon (3) is really looking forward to meet his baby brother, Anthonij.  It was so great to have Theo, Liezl and Simon in the studio for a few family photos and a few maternity photos.  Looking forward to photograph little Anthonij in a few weeks.
