Hey there, I’m Stephanie de Jager.
I’m an Entrepreneur, Photographer, Social Media Influencer, Digital Content Creator, Business Strategist and Motivational Speaker.
I am currently based in Cape Town, South Africa, but willing to travel all over the world for commissions.
I have a BAccounting Honours degree from the University of Stellenbosch. During my second last year of studies, in 2013, I founded the business. My husband and part-time business partner, Shaun de Jager, has a BSc Computer Science Honnours degree from the University of Stellenbosch and is currently working full time at Amazon Web Services.
We have been together since 2009 and are happily married since December 2014. We are a young, vibrant, active and ambitious couple with a great love for coffee, wildlife, the outdoors, fun adventures together, last minute trips, Apple products, fashion, fine dining, boutique wine, craft beers, decent whiskeys and photography of course.
"We're all wired differently and we should make life choices that make us thrive. The pursuit of money, won't make you happy. If you follow your heart and passions, success and most likely money will follow. If not, at least your enjoying life and not living for each pay check."

After 4 years of studies and completing more than half of my CA articles, I made the decision to start focusing full time on my growing photography business. It was tough, because I was brought up to finish what I've started and to never give up. I didn't give up, but I realized that I need to start focusing on my long term goals. I am a creative and knew I would never practice as a CA and that I wanted to run my own creative business. I made the decision to start focusing and building on my long term goals, rather than pursuing a title. I knew the time spent building my business would bear more fruit than getting a title I was not going to use. This decision opened me up for a lot of criticism as most people disapproved of it and thought I was crazy, but I am proving them wrong.
I hope I can inspire you to pursue your passions and follow your dreams.
