About Me

Hello, my name is Jennifer (or Jen for short).  

 

I am the business owner and operator of Fleetingtime Photography, which was created and opened in 2013. My business is my baby, and everything that happens within the business, from first contact, marketing, finances, photo-taking, and editing is all done by me. I wear many hats in my business, but every aspect is lovingly completed by me.  Each client becomes part of my extended family and is treated with love, respect, and care during every aspect of the photography process. 

 

Photography has been in my blood since childhood, but nine years ago I decided to study photography and started my life as a professional photographer, after spending a few decades in the corporate world.  Although many photographers have influenced my work along the way, I have created my style which I consider to be more natural with minimal editing to remove blemishes.

 

I grew up in the Republic of South Africa, but have been very fortunate to visit and live in different countries which has all added to my personal growth as well as allowed me to make friends in different corners of the globe.  I currently live in a relatively small town in China with my wonderful husband.

 

I am also passionate about personal development, so I am continually learning new skills that all add to my life experience and knowledge.  Since I love yoga, I became a certified yoga teacher in 2017 and thus spend most evenings giving yoga classes.  A few years ago, I received the calling for teaching and fell in love with the teaching profession.  So, I decided that I wanted to better myself by completing my Masters of Art in International Education in 2022. 

 

Nowadays, I spend my time as a professional photographer, and teacher which brings me immense satisfaction and joy.  In my spare time, I love to knit my photography props, embroider small projects, read, travel, or take long walks with my husband.  I also love Christmas and coffee.

 

If you have any questions, please let me know, as I would love to hear from you.

“We had the pleasure to have Jen make our pregnancy pictures as well as our new born pictures. She did such an amazing job and we can not recommend her enough. She was very flexible and generous with her time. When the time came for our new born pictures she spent so much quality time making sure the baby was full, warm and just comfortable, she even let us include my mum on the pictures, which wasn't part of the plan, but she graciously allowed us to. Jen is professional and passionate about her photography, and it shows on every single shot she takes. We will treasure those pictures forever, so thank you Jen for that you shall never be forgotten."
