Childhood is a magical time that flows so quickly – and one can only experience it once… Myra has a precious two-year old son Toon: a handsome, energetic and sweet little guy. Myra makes photos and albums to preserve his unique childhood moments in photos and albums. Now there came a moment when she wanted to have a professional photo session to capture Toon as he is now – and also of them together – in a series of natural and artistic portraits. I am always excited to photograph a mother and a child together. Capturing this special band with its deep feelings is truly rewarding.
Our choice of location was quite natural: Myra and Toon often walk in a park close to their home in Rotterdam. Places anchored in a child’s daily experience will add more nostalgic value to the photos as the time passes. The park also has a playground and a lot of open space to run – perfect for an active little boy with a football!
Greyish Dutch winter may not seem the perfect season for a photo shoot. I don’t agree. Nature, trees, flowers don’t wear their colourful dresses but this has some advantages. Their quiet understated beauty helps focus on the essence of the feelings in the reportage. And when it’s cold outside, all warmth comes from within…
Toon and Myra where great to photograph, and here are some photos from our photo session.
