Baptism Photography in Apeldoorn: Nicky’s Day

Christenings are such wonderful events to photograph and I was happy to hear from Mariesa who wanted me to document her little son’s baptism in the beautiful Our Lady church in Apeldoorn.

We started our event reportage in the morning photographing baby Nicky at home with all the family that gathered there on his special day. It was a pleasant summer day, and the garden behind the house was large enough for any group portraits. I love all the photos of the charming little guy Nicky with his parents, grandparents and godparents, and everybody else: they show the love in the family and the fun of being together.

Just look at the little Nicky with that happy smile! It was also very special to capture Nicky together with his elder brother Alain. Alain is very caring about his baby brother and likes to play with him. He was very excited about Nicky’s day. I really love their portraits together: so pure and timeless, capturing the boys as they are now and showing their character and their special band. I am also very happy with the portraits of Alain together with his daddy and gorgeous mother.

Bethany’s Big Day: The First Communion Reportage in Apeldoorn

Today I want to share some photos from a lovely reportage in Apeldoorn.

I first met Bethany when she was four years old, and now she had a big day: her first communion.

We started the reportage with Bethany getting ready for the ceremony at home: the moments most girls of any age enjoy so much. Bethany is such a pretty and radiant little lady: it won’t surprise you she looked like a princess in her amazing dress.

Family photo shoot in Ridderkerk

One of my biggest pleasures as a family photographer is to see my clients back, observe the children grow and meet the new family members. I was excited to hear from Eva and Gerben, a lovely family from Rotterdam, that they were expecting a second baby and then to plan a photo session with their two little boys!

Family photography in Soesterduinen

Aline was looking for a special birthday present for her husband. She thought a professional family photo session is a very personal, unique gift that means both fun time and a lasting memory in the form of wall art afterwards. I could not agree more and was happy to set up the details of the surprise photo session with Aline. The children, Tom and Erin were also involved in the plan. They shared their ideas with the mother and kept them secret from the father!

A Special Birthday Present: Reportage in Capelle aan den IJssel and Kop van Zuid

Astrid wanted to give her husband Niels a special present for his birthday. Something very personal, unique and lasting on behalf of herself and their son Fabian. What, then, could be more personal than several custom-made portraits? Astrid thought even bigger than this: Niels should receive not just a couple of prints, but a whole gift album with a fun photo story to surprise him! Of course, surprise also means it had to be kept secret…
