Small town girl with a big city life.
Here I am, Nkima… just a girl from a small town called Hazyview in South Africa. I can still hear the Sabie River crushing through the rocks close to my bedroom window… What a divine sound that brings you back to life. We can get so caught up in all day things that we sometimes forget were we came from. At a young age I would sit on our little beach with my Barbies (yes a girly girl) and dream of a life far away and missing someone I don’t know. Ha! That describes me to this day.
At the age of 13 we moved to the UK and what a change that was! Coming from a farm to live in a far away place called London just seemed unbelievable. My life truly changed in so many ways. Goodbyes, challenges, scared and just starting a brand new life and I was ready for the unknown. By the time I was 20, London became my home and my playground, I developed a real passion for detail and photographing everything I see as beautiful. That included my friends! A few years on I knew my photography needed to be explored… I always struggled with the decision on making it a full career but after a very special someone pushed me in the right direction It just bloomed from there on. I am happy to say that from this day I am a full time photographer, living the life that I feel that I’m destined for. Blessed is an understatement. My husband played a big part in all of this and I’ll be forever grateful. He took all of these arty pictures of me in Central London and captured the real essence of my blog post today.
Just a girl with a passion. Making the most of this crazy life.
Let’s dream beyond infinity..
