In the beginning, I almost only did posing work, also with children and yes even newborns. Had a posing bag (as it is called so nicely), countless hair bands, hats, and background cloths and so on. But something never clicked. I couldn't put my finger on it in the beginning.

For me, the beautiful moments during a session were always the moments that parents had with their children when they were waiting. The hugs, chatting together. That was what I wanted to record, I wanted this. Just like I always did and still do with my own children. I only focus on documentary family photography (or day in the life reports): family, pregnancy, birth and newborn. Spontaneous, casual and pure photography that captures your life as it is. My wedding photography also has these words as a theme. Showing how the day really went; the emotions and the moments.

What else can I tell you about me? I love cookbooks, I have a lot of them, I mainly bought some because of the photos in it. And one more thing about me...I love quotes! Those who follow me on my facebook page or my Instagram know this. I mainly use quotes to emphasize a photo or a series of photos. They can really give strength to a photo.
