Forest and Dunes: Wassenaar Children Photography

Nelleke is a mother of five beautiful children – Charlotte, Christiaan, Diederick, Olivia and Floris. She wanted to portray each of them and the family together in a natural and memorable way capturing each kid’s personality, the purity of their age, and the genuine emotions of the moment. Nelleke thought about some beautiful forest or dunes as an ideal location for this photo session, and we have chosen the surroundings of Wassenaar that offer a combination of both. It was a poetic and picturesque place, and the children could run around and play freely.

The kids and their parents, Nelleke and Dick, were just awesome and I have great time photographing them. Our session was freestyle and fun and delivered a whole reportage full of precious moments and natural expressions. I’d love to share some of these photos with you.

Nelleke is great in home design. I was impressed by the interior style she created for the family’s house in The Hague: elegant and classic and warm and cozy at the same time. Nelleke was looking for unique and personal wall art decoration with family photos. She developed a beautiful composition of classic frames and I am happy that my blog post provided some inspiration here. We also made use of a special simulation app to check out in advance how some photos will work out together in various combinations. Now this wall photo collection has become a wonderful focal point in the living room, a symbol of love and warmth in the family. We have also designed smaller portrait groups for other rooms and then, there is also a large album. It tells a story about a day in a life of the family: a story of childhood, brothers and sisters, children and parents, and lots of love. I am honored I was allowed to help preserve these wonderful memories forever.

Thank you, dear Nelleke, Dick, Charlotte, Christiaan, Diederick, Olivia and Floris!
