Natasha, The 50 Over 50 Women’s Portrait Campain


Natasha, 51

Where are you from, and where do you currently live?

From South Africa, and currently living along along the Atlantic Seaboard.


If your friends were to describe you, what would they say?

Kind, creative, and strong.


What is your favourite quote or saying?

“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger”


Que sera, sera which means ‘whatever will be, will be’


What would you say you are most proud of?

Starting my own business in my 20s and growing it over the last three decades. Then starting a family in my 40s.


What advice would you give your younger self?

Take the time to enjoy your youth…literally, slow down and smell the roses….don’t be in such a rush to grow up!

Have the confidence and self-belief to follow your dreams!


What is a goal or dream you still wish to accomplish?

I have always loved cooking, food and travel and my dream is to segue into those areas in addition to my current work as an interior designer & project manager.

Perhaps in a few decades, you will find me hosting a cooking school or a boutique hotel with gourmet food experiences in Italy!


What are your thoughts on ageing?

The quote by the architect Frank Lloyd Wright sums up my thoughts:

“The longer I live, the more beautiful life becomes.”

I appreciate my health, family, business, and relationships more and more, every day.

I am also aware that those days are finite, which lends an intensity to the appreciation of each new day.


What did you enjoy most about The 50 Over 50 Women’s Portrait Campaign? And how did the experience leave you feeling?

The whole day was so uplifting emotionally and great fun.

I left the shoot feeling confident and positive.

Natasha and I had a few chats before her portrait session, so on the day of her session, it felt like I was meeting up with a friend.

I love how her strength and playful came out in her portraits.

I schedule calls with all my clients, some over the phone and some on ZOOM, as I know how anxious one can feel before being photographed.

I find this helps to build a relationship so that on the day, there are less nerves and more laughs.
