Hey there! I'm Mandy. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you stay a while and look around. I'm so glad you found my little space on the web and look forward to connecting with you.
Born in South Africa and recently relocated to North West Sydney. I fall a little more in love with my new home country everyday! 
I'd call myself an "eternal optimist" ~ see change as an adventure and I'm always excited to meet new people and capture their uniqueness with my lens.

No.1

My family is my everything. Being a mom of 2 very loud, energetic teen boys is a source of constant laughs, interesting conversations... and shouting to do chores.

Give me all the books!!

I am a bookworm at heart and can be found with my nose buried in a book whenever the opportunity presents itself (which is often if i have my way! haha) and I have been known to read a favourite book more than once.

I have a weakness for Willow Tree Angels. I currently have a collection of 24 and counting. I started collecting them once the boys were old enough not to pull them off the tables.

I love being outdoors and exploring our new home. I've never lived this close to the ocean and love exploring all the beaches and coastal walks.

I'm a sucker for a good Chai Latte!

I've never been a huge coffee lover, I can drink all the tea in the world....but if I want something special, there's no quicker way into my heart than with a Grande Chai Latte... pure heaven.

I love travelling and I'm fortunate to have travelled to some of the most beautiful places in the world through this amazing job of mine! From coastal and inland towns in South Africa, to the majestic vistas of Switzerland, Italy and France. I'd pretty much call that a dream job.

The SUGAR TREe PHILOSOPHY

GENUINE. FUN. MEMORABLE

As your photographer, I am passionate about what I do and an essential part of that is to make your photoshoot an enjoyable experience. I believe the end result of your session should be photos that capture YOU … your joy, your laughter, your relationships.
A photoshoot is not just about the photos that come out of it – it’s about the entire experience. Your photos are important, but first and foremost – YOU’RE important! So I strongly believe that having your photos taken should be a happy experience with no stress or discomfort. I aim for fun, relaxed sessions that are full of joy and laughter, especially if kids are involved. This is what I bring to all my sessions, no matter what the occasion.
One thing you’ll learn about me is that I’m all heart. Achieving excellence and meeting your expectations with love and care are part of that. I will give you genuine, classic images that you will be able to share with your family and friends for years to come.
God has blessed me with the opportunity to do what I love as a career, and through that He brings amazing people into my life that I have the honour of capturing with my lens.
