Real people. Real life.

Photostories told.

Hi! I’m Kirrily, an environmental portrait & editorial photographer. I seek out people in their natural habitat and capture what makes them them. I would love to capture what makes you you… too.




Let’s make your story visual.

Put yourself front and centre of your business. Shooting with me means finding what makes you feel comfortable. My shoots are relaxed and fun, quite often involve coffee and lots of finding out what makes you tick.

People. Places. Projects.

I’m eternally fascinated by the world, both at home and abroad. Inspiration for my editorial shoots usually stem from a need to understand what is really going on in the world. And to document it.

As a photographer, it is important to keep learning and growing. I usually have one or more personal projects on the go to ensure that not only my skills, but passion too, continues to grow.

Behind the shoot.

People are at the heart of what I do. Everyone has their own fascinating story to tell.  I don’t just take their photo – I capture real images that truly tell their stories.

Kirrily has a great eye for colour and composition. She took the most beautiful shots for my business website, styling me and my garden to really bring out my personality. We had such a fun and relaxing afternoon!

As someone that utterly hates having their photo taken, Kirrily has an incredible ability to put you at ease. She captures natural, colourful and personable images which are both effortless and professional.

Clint Botha, Business DirectorPhysiolistic
Kirrily made our family photo shoot really easy. She observed, let us be ourselves, made our children giggle and snapped many special moments before we even realised. She captured natural and beautiful photographs that really show of our girls personalities and just make us smile.

The ElielsModels
Kirrily has the rare quality of being both highly creative, and unfailingly precise. She took care of every aspect of photography for our business, from handling fashion shoots with children and adults, to meticulously creating product photography for our online shop. She has a fantastic eye, and is able to work with your vision for your brand to get the look and feel for photography you need. I can’t recommend her highly enough.
Louise Van HaarstFounder, The Numbers

My style of photography is very literary, in the acceptance of detail and everydayness. What you’re wearing is okay and who you are is okay and you don’t have to be cosmeticised.
