Hello, my name is Claudia De Nobrega, and I live in the beautiful city of Cape Town,
South Africa.. I am so excited that I don’t even know where to begin...
There is so much to tell you and so much to show you...
My Faith... I am nothing without my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
He is my passion and I want to give all the glory to our Lord and honour Him in everything I do.
"...In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths..." (Proverbs 3:6)
My Husband... Ricardo or "Ricky" as he is generally known... is my angel,
he is my business partner, he is my support-system, he is my encourager,
my motivator, my biggest critic,
my loving & kind best friend, he makes me laugh!
Apart from being really handsome,
Ricky is also a very talented photographer and
graphic / web designer! Ricky’s photographs will also be featured on this website!
Our different strengths and skills combined make us a great team!
Ricky motivated me to press forward and he shows me everyday that hardwork,
committment, self-discipline & passion are key to a successful business.
My husband knows my heart & my dreams! Have I mentioned he makes me laugh!
His Love for me keeps my head above water because he believes in me!
I thank God everyday for blessing me with such an amazing husband!
My Family...I thank my parents for the person I am today. Through their guidance,
constant support, discipline, advice and love, I found my way in the world.
The most valuable lesson I learnt through their own life example
was to always put God & family first in your life.
Plus I love being Portuguese!
My grandmother "Avó"... has been a big inspiration in my life growing up,
she taught me to love with all my heart, to help others, to forgive others,
to show kindness to everyone. She taught me the importance of prayer.
My Creative Inspirations... Life, Photography, Design, Art, Décor, Fashion, Vintage,
Books, Travelling, Beautiful Places, Sunsets, Trees, Flowers, Clouds, Ocean,
Ribbons & Colours, Theatre, Inspiring People, Pretty Pictures and All Things Lovely!
My Career... I love what I do! To document a special time in a person’s life is truly
a blessing for me. Growing up I always wanted to change the world for the better,
play my part to make our world a better place... I often wondered if this desire,
came from my imagination or if it was something deeper... something from God.
At this very moment, I still have that desire to change the world... but now I know
that it goes very deep and God is slowly unfolding His plan for my life.
I have realised that my photography does change lives, because I capture love!
The love between a newly engaged couple, the miracle of a newborn baby,
the heartwarming smile of a young girl twirling around in her matric dance dress.
My job is completely rewarding & I love the fact that my photos make people happy!
My Photography Style...I would say fun, natural, fresh, elegant, romantic & happy!
My Voice... this might sound strange... but I have recently found my voice!
I used to be afraid to put pen to paper, I felt unworthy, fearful and insecure...
But God has placed a very strong desire in my heart to use my voice!
Whether it be through writing, speaking, teaching,
or by allowing my voice to speak
through my photography.
This is a new adventure for me! I am so excited!
I am on the journey of life. God is directing and instructing my path. (Psalm 32 vs 8)
There is so much still to learn and so much still to explore! But I am ready.
