Aletta, The 40 Over 40 Women’s Portrait Campaign

Aletta,  (on the verge of) 40

Aletta (nickname Letta) is going to be 40 in October this year! That’s a huge milestone!  Although the campaign is for women 40 and above, Aletta was invited by her sister Marinda to be in the shoot.

And it’s been absolutely amazing to celebrate all 3 sisters and see how they connected in my studio. I love all their striking tattoos and posed them to showcase their amazing body art.

I have been described by my friends and family as…

Giving, Tons of humor, strong

My best quality is…


I am most proud of…

Competing in the World Master Weightlifting competition in Barcelona. 2018 I represented South Africa and won Bronze in my weight division.

My favourite quotes…

“But first coffee!”

What advice would I give my 20-year-old self…

Enjoy the small moments more. Take all the time you need.

We all experience many lifetimes in this one life. What do you find are the most poignant changes up until now?

Never thought I would have an opportunity to go to Spain and be on an international stage lifting weights with fellow lifters from all over the world.

Those moments I wish I can freeze and capture every emotion.

Thoughts on aging…

We are all in it, time just becomes shorter with the people you love.



It was so special to have Aletta and her sisters, Marinda and Carina in my studio together. As life goes by, it’s important to find the time for deep connections, and of course, capturing moments like these.  To see Aletta’s sister, Marinda’s shoot too, click HERE.
