I'm Claudia! Family photographer Amsterdam, German, grew up in Dresden, lived in Berlin, followed the dance training, I have two children and I am very interested in psychology.
I like pleasant crowds. You get that quickly when you grow up with 1 sister and 2 brothers in a small house. As a child, I did not always have a stable family situation. My father became very mentally ill in the young years. As a result, my mother was largely responsible for the care and maintenance of her children. That was not an easy time for our family. That is why I never expected that I would ever live in the Netherlands, be married to the sweetest man and have two super sweet children together. And especially with my husband, I can do the work that we love and that gives us energy.
People mention that I am honest, always smile, friendly and make contact with children quickly and easily. I prefer to take photos that capture the small and big moments of a family in a real and casual way. The time with our family, children and loved ones is the most valuable thing there is. And unconditional love is the greatest good we can give our children.
From experience, I know that living with small children is like a fast train. We love the moments together with our children, but often we lack the time and energy to capture these moments for later. But photos are indispensable. Because with photos we can later look back on the hectic and also so beautiful period in our lives. We can see how their children have grown and what we have all experienced. And not only that, these photos will last for generations later. With this, even our (great) grandchildren can see where their roots are.
My greatest passions are people and their lives. That's why I like to read Humans stories in New York, Amsterdam ... I can really enjoy that. When I am not working, I often spend time with my children, I read books about (trauma) psychology, I listen to podcasts about science and marketing and I am cycling, home-fitness or at a dance class.
