I love telling stories
My name is Lida, and I'm a South African lifestyle photographer based in Rome, Italy.
I love nothing more than being invited into people's lives, be it for an hour or a whole day, to capture some special moments that will become precious memories.
I found my calling by combining several of my passions: exploring, observing, asking questions, learning new things, and most of all, discovering the beauty in every day instances.
My passion was kindled and nurtured by my parents, and grew as I studied magazine journalism, and production design at film school. It also kept on evolving as I immersed myself in the creative world of the film & tv industry.
All along the way, even when my work as a film producer took me far away from my personal passions, I made sure to keep my camera close.
Then, when my husband and I moved to Rome in 2016, I decided it was time to turn my passion into a full-time business. Which I did! Now, three years later, after a few stops and starts, here I am! A South African ragazza in Italy capturing all the magical moments through my photography.
