get to know me
I absolutely love photographing important seasons of life like saying ‘I do’ and motherhood. And I discovered – even more so when becoming a mom – that when the years go by, photos become more important. They can take you back to that day, that feeling. It’s a true passion to provide that memory for you!
Since I can remember, photos have always been in our home growing up. As a little girl I used to arrange all our printed photos into albums in my room. That tells me that photography always had my heart. After studying Graphic Design and having worked at several fashion magazines, I felt like being a wedding photographer was my purpose.
I love romantic things like flowers, hand dyed ribbons and reading vows to each other. Landscapes that look like an oil painting, with beautiful willow trees hanging over the water. Sceneries where you can feel the history, like you’re back in The Renaissance or living in a Jane Austin book. That’s why I always get so inspired when I travel to England, France or Italy. And all of this with a fashionable and modern twist.

My son is literally my everything!! Even more so because it took us two years of conceiving and one miscarriage to get to him. My heart melts when his dad let's him laugh and giggle.
I can’t help it but it’s true. Pink is my favorite color and I’m not ashamed of it ;-)
I absolutely love to travel, enjoy different cultures and see the beautiful nature a country has to offer. My perfect holiday is when I get to interact with locals. Besides Dutch and Frisian (the language from my province) I speak English, Spanish, some Portuguese and a little Italian.
I can't even describe how important these photos of my son are when he was 6 weeks old! Having family photos taken is just as big of a deal as your wedding day. A once in a lifetime moment. Don’t forget to invest in these special moments.
I loveee to wear high heels! It brightens up every outfit and makes me feel confident. I have to say that I don't wear them as often anymore now that I'm running behind a toddler, but stil...
I photograph both film and digital, but film really has my heart. The colors are amazing and I love the process! I sent my film off to my lab in Spain to get the rolls developed.
I think calligraphy is an amazing craft and it's just so beautiful and delicate. In this digital age I like old processes like film and this one. Doesn't it look romantic? Amazing work by Naomi from Pen to Paper.

what I do in my business
I’ve always cared for nature and the environment. A subject that has gotten more important to me when becoming a mother. I try to make better decisions regarding my ecological footprint in my personal life, but also in my business. I love the fact that there are more brands on the market with that same vision, but still maintaining a fashionable esthetic.
