Hi, I’m Jessica Otto, a certified, full time photographer, based in Centurion, Gauteng. With a passion for people and attention to detail, I have been driven to follow this path. I especially love working with children. My work tracks the journey and tells the story of love, from couple shoots, to engagements, weddings, newborn shoots, milestone shoots and family photography. I would describe my work as classic, soft and natural, with a touch of romance.
My love for photography stemmed from noticing the little things and finding myself lost in a moment, looking at this moment in time and thinking that this would make such a beautiful memory to have forever. On your wall, or in a photo-album, my images are timeless and organic. I love capturing those raw and special moments between loved ones, the beauty of a child, the warmth of a family, the affection of a couple...
Other than being a photographer, I spend my time being a proud mom to my two girls, who inspire me to learn new things every day, see the world through the eyes of a child and grow as they do.
I have a special place in my heart for animals and I’m passionate about travel. I am what people call a sensitive soul, very compassionate and caring. While to some this could be seen as a weakness it has enabled me to see and absorb people's feelings through the lens of my camera.
