Introducing myself to people always makes me feel like I'm in group therapy...
So this is me... Hi, I’m Lee *awkward grin*
My photographic spark was lit by award-winning photo-journalist/lecturer, Zubeida Vallie and flamed bright during a life-changing interview with award-wining lifestyle and commercial photographer, Gerda Genis, while studying at the Cape Town University of Technology.
After a whirlwind decade experimenting with life, love and business all over South Africa, I re-branded and headed for the international waters of cruise line life for the next decade.
Taking a leaf from the books of each country I visited, person I met and friend I made, I left ship-life a far richer soul than when I arrived. Whatever the next decade holds, I'm excited to share it with you and yours behind and in front of the camera 🧡📸
Belle Lumière Foto Supports:
I am working on "Pictures In The Park" photographing families who have adopted rescues and seniors.
I am not only advocating for #adoptdontshop, but also hopefully sparking the realization that many people do "family portraits" without their most beloved members. Our pets are such an unconditionally consistent cornerstone in our lives but we rarely have memories documented with them.
I donate $60 per month to this nonprofit. Especially during the current pandemic situation, they don't just request financial aid, but also anything in the line of pamper packs and products. For more on what they do, visit
For each donation you send, you will earn one Bellbassador reward point.
Once you have received ten points, your next portrait session fee will be waived, essentially giving you a $350 credit toward your purchase.
