A bit more about Karien - 

While Karien, the company’s Founder, Managing Director & Chief Photographer, started her adult life following a career in law, she found her passion in Photography.

After High School, Karien moved to the States & studied for a BSc Degree in Criminal Justice at the University of South Carolina. She was an Honour student, a member of Student Government and placed on the Dean’s List. Back in South Africa, she received her BA Degree cum laude in Community Safety & Socio-Legal studies, with a specialization in Offender Profiling from UNISA.

But Karien soon discovered her passion for Photography. After earning a Diploma in Photography, she founded Just Frame Me Photography (Pty) Ltd. in 2015 and co-founded Ivory Lotus Photography (Pty) Ltd. in 2020.

Karien's photography has been featured & published in several digital and print magazines, both nationally (in the Mother & Child magazine & various PPMC Magazines) and internationally (in Amateur Photographer, Digital Camera World, Dodho, 121CLICKS, Photography Week and UK’s Express, to name but a few).

Karien has also won numerous local & international awards. 
She received various Top 10 Awards in South Africa’s Admired in Africa Awards in 2018 and 2019, and various Top 30%, Top 20% and Top 10% Awards in the international Shoot & Share photography contest in 2020 and 2021, receiving a phenomenal achievement of placing in the Top 100 of the International Shoot & Share photography contest from over 600k entries with over 85million votes from 118 different countries from around the world. 
 Karien also received various Top percentage awards in the 6th Annual (Top 17%), 7th Annual (Top14%) and 8th Annual (Top 16%) 35Awards, another international photography contest, along with an incredible Top19% Award awarded for Overall Photographer in the Studio Portrait 2021 Category of the 8th Annual 35Awards international photography contest.  

Her work has also been on exhibition in several galleries around the world, from Cape Town (South Africa) to New York (USA), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Athens (Greece), Barcelona (Spain), Belgrade (Serbia), Berlin (Germany), Lisbon (Portugal), Melbourne (Australia), Milano (Italy), Strasbourg (France), Singapore, and Vienna (Austria), to name a few.
In 2022, Karien's photography was exhibited at the Modeka Art in Manila (Phillippines), at the Coningsby Gallery in London (UK), as well as at the Kontrast Galleri in Stockholm (Sweden).

On a more personal note, Karien absolutely LOVES the ocean and is absolutely terrified of frogs. Every. Single. Frog. We kid you not! She has a HUGE sweet tooth & treats herself to her favourite chocolate (a white TV Bar) before every shoot – every time, without fail! 

Karien currently lives in beautiful Bloubergstrand in Cape Town , South Africa, with her husband, their three kids, and their rescue pup, Jack.
