Sonja Walker was first bitten by the photography bug when she was about ten years old and she had the opportunity to use somebody's camera on a school outing. Photography soon became a form of escapism from a rather tough childhood and Sonja soon became known as the girl with the camera. Sonja found the whole concept of capturing moments, especially those moments that involved family, intriguing because other than one faded photo she had of herself as a baby, there was none of her childhood.
Today, Sonja lists one of the happiest days of her life as being the day she purchased her first camera, a second-hand Canon 550D. After that, there was no stopping her and she still marvels at the fact that she has been blessed to be involved in an industry that has become her passion.
Tomorrow isn't promised to anyone, so it's up to you to document your today. Sonja Walker will customize a unique package to suit your individual needs. Captured Photography offers value-added services such as advice on beauty stylists and function venues. Sonja is available to help you with anything you may need (photography or not) to ensure your photo-shoot is a happy and memorable experience. Photography shoots include but are not limited to:
Photographer, Sonja Walker, is very sensitive to the needs of pregnant women. Being a mom of three lively kiddiewinkles, Sonja understands first-hand that pregnant women and moms need breaks and she never rushes the session. Sonja only books one client for the day and the one-on-one attention soothes her lovely models and brings out the best in them. The feeling of not being rushed radiates from all of Sonja’s photos. Whether you chose to have specific moments of your pregnancy and birth captured or you decide on a full package that includes the whole wonderful journey of pregnancy, birth and motherhood, First Breath Captured Photography will be by your side every step of the way.
