Rocca Calascio & Santa Maria della Pietà

While looking for photo shoot locations in Italy for a styled shoot I came across this gem: Santa Maria della Pietà, an octagonal church on a bare mountain ridge in Abruzzo, Italy. Eventually we decided on another location, but I couldn’t pass up the...

Pascalle + Lennart | Wedding in Bergen aan Zee

Pascalle and Lennart were the first couple to book me as their wedding photographer since I took my business full-time last year. Without knowing, the two of them marked an important change in my life. They will forever have a special place in my heart for that...

Katarina + Nona | Mommy & me session

Every now and then I also do family photography. My favourite kind of shoots are mothers with their little ones. Mothers are often the ones that rarely get to be in the family photos because they are the ones making the photos the whole time. Also, I just love...

Miret + Viyasa | Engagement shoot in Utrecht

Miret and Vyasa totally rocked this engagement session. This whole shoot there were three cameras pointed their way. My photography bff Ilka van Wieren and I teamed up to do a posing mentoring session with Nadia, a beginning photographer eager to learn. Slightly...

Coco + Lex | 1920s vintage wedding

Gold rimmed tableware, the aged wood of antique furniture, shoes straight from a fairytale, heavy gemstone jewelry and flowers as if they were painted by the Dutch Masters. The inspiration for this styled vintage wedding was taken from the soul of old things. Things...

Nimue + Pieter | Loveshoot at home

On a rainy morning in mid-February I got to document the love between these two fabulous people. Nimue and Pieter live in a beautiful 1950s home in the heart of Flanders - which they have restored to far beyond its original glory, I might add. They share their...

Ilka | Portrait session in Utrecht

A few weeks ago I met Ilka, who is a very talented photographer herself and fast becoming a good friend. We visited the Oude Hortus (the old botanical gardens) - botanical gardens are always a favourite of mine - and snapped some wonderful whimsical portraits of each...

Pien + Marie

As much as I love epic landscapes, in the end it is the love, emotion and connection captured that makes an image memorable. I love catching those everyday details in my work, turning your attention back to something that tends to get overlooked in the rush and chaos...

Yaiza + Glenn

It was one of those grey sky autumn days, when the air holds so much water that it continuously sprinkles tiny drops on your face and hair. I told them that most of my love shoot clients are a bit nervous at first, but that after ten minutes there is no trace of that...

Katrien + Tanguy

He burst into tears no more than three minutes into the ceremony, reaching for a handkerchief while three of his closest friends continued their musical intervention. A little later he would hand the same handkerchief to his bride, to catch her tears as she read her...
