about Charlene


Charlene van wijk

Let me introduce myself…

My name is Charlene van Wijk and I am a Pietermaritzburg based photographer with a massive passion for Newborn and Child Photography.


I am a mom to a busy little 3-year-old and an Aunty to a vibrant 7-year-old. I have always loved taking photos but having these two munchkins has intensified my love for child photography. I love nothing more than capturing every special moment I can!

I love natural light and therefore use only natural light for my photography. I specialise in Maternity, Newborn and Children photography but do occasionally do family photography.

I want to help you to capture your special moments… I want to create beautiful art with you, the kind of art that you will want to hang on your walls for all your friend and family to see. 

I love to chat and would like you to feel totally comfortable and trust me to capture your special moments.

Being so passionate about photography and my love to be with people has helped my grow my business from strength to strength.


I would love to meet you and capture the moments that are important to you!

Please stay a little longer and have a look at my work.
