I hate tech stuff, posing and fake light. I am all about the fun, the natural and the story. You book a photo session with me to get awesome images, and to experience feeling free and beautiful just as you are.
Staring at the ocean. Taking a deep breath. Wearing easy clothes. Eating good food. Telling a silly joke. Being with my people. Sitting in stillness. Laughing for no reason. Crying for no reason. It's all perfect and I take pictures to celebrate it all.
I live in the south of the Netherlands, near the wild dunes of Zealand and somewhat close to the city of Rotterdam. It's an awesome combination of calming nature and buzzing city vibes. So I know lots of lovely spots for your photo session!
When I was little I always lost myself in my imagination. I somehow think in images. I get this rush feeling when I see something odd, cool or beautiful. Learning photography felt natural and so exiting at the same time. I went to You Tube school and I quickly decided that I am not a tech person. It's just me, my camera and the sun. Connecting with you is far, far more important then fancy tech stuff or a perfectly sharp image. I crafted my skill while shooting everything and anything. My confidence grew and now I capture real images of real life and real people!

No posing! The goal is to capture you as you are. Sure, I will guide you a little bit. I got your back. But if you are looking for a perfect smiling high school portrait shot, we might not be the best fit.
I am not your photographer. I am your friend! We are in this together. I really want to get to know you so we can create images that reflect who you are.
I only shoot with natural light. The sun is everything, whether it is behind a cloud or blasting through a window.
I don't stick to a specific style. I make editing choices that enhances how things felt in the moment. My signature is natural, fresh and with a warm dark undertone.
We go with the flow. Maybe we are wildly inspired at one location spot or not. There is no specific plan besides the date and location. We do what feels good. I am no mystery so you know exactly what is going on in my head.
"It felt awkward and It's not me in the photos" I hear this all the time from women who went cheap on photos. You deserve a photo session that feels good. You deserve photographs that reflect who you are. You are amazing and it's time to celebrate that. I am not the cheapest deal, because I am passionate about capturing photographs that are meaningful, authentic and timeless.
