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...

two thousand sixteen

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...

Martine + Coen

I met up with Martine and Coen in coffee bar Pushkin in the old centre of Utrecht. Five sips into my tea and I knew that a) their happiness is the kind that is contagious b) I had a fun afternoon filled with laughter ahead of me c) those chestnut...

Marie

Last week I went to Amsterdam to photograph artist Marie de Bruyn in her glass studio at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. Marie creates conceptual glass work/installations, using traditional glass blowing techniques. We talked about the beauty + the mess of being creative...

Elly

It's been a while since I visited ceramic artist Elly van Leeuwen in her studio for a photo session. It was the first time I ever did a creative business photo reportage, so this one will always be special to me. It is very easy to feel quickly at home in Elly's light...
