natural & artistic

A Family investment in preserving your family’s legacy through portraits and photo books is one that you will never regret but will cherish for many generations to come.

Some examples of the journeys I document:

• the miracle of life growing inside you
• the perfect new bundle of joy
• the energetic cute toddler
• precious family photos

My designer photo books have clean, elegant and classic lines – perfect for sharing with friends and family while you relive those special moments.

I was so blessed and fortunate to have been awarded the opportunity to work with Aniki who is a creative, patient, loving and passionate photographer. She took photographs of my newborn baby and made the whole process a walk in the park. She created a wonderful and memorable experience that I will always treasure in my heart. The pictures turned out absolutely beautiful and they were high quality too!!! Because of her work I have memories of my little one that will last a lifetime.

Sun Sparrows Nursery School Principal, Mrs Veldsman: “Aniki – die fotos spreek boekdele! Dit is so mooi, vang die kinders in hul onskuld en vrolikheid so mooi vas. Mens kan nie anders as om jou warm hart raak te sien nie!”

Mrs Veldsman

I’ve never in my life taken such beautiful photos as they’re very expensive to take. Mam Aniki opened her house to us and took her time to take the most beautiful photos ever. When Zakhele sent me the photos my dad couldn’t believe it was me. My make-up was lit, and my date wasn’t prepared for what he saw when he came to pick me up at home that evening. I walked that red carpet at the matric dance like I own the world. Thank you, a million times, to both mam Aniki and mam Lora for making my matric dance the best experience of my life. I’ve heard of God’s love but this time I saw it with my eyes as it touched my face to make me look pretty and as it flashed to capture my beauty in photos.


Chapters by Ani walked the extra mile with the school photos. The props used for the pictures were creative and had a personal touch. The photographer treated each student as a special individual and is passionate about photography. Chapters by Ani’s administration and communication during the photo process were very professional.

The personalized experience made us feel like part of the family, attention to detail was paramount and brought every aspect of our dream day to fruition. 

Chapters by Ani het ons troue wonderbaarlik, van begin tot einde, met elke aspek uniek uitgebeeld.  Die fotos het so mooi deel gevorm van die dag saam met familie en vriende, presies soos ons dit wou gehad het.  Dit was gemaklik met baie sorg en liefde. Ek sal Aniki enige tyd en met vreugde aanbeveel.
