First Birthday photo session in Apeldoorn

Last August I photographed Nicky’s baptism party, and now the little guy is turning one year old. Saying goodbye to one’s baby time is a special moment to celebrate and to capture for the future.

Nicky’s mother didn’t want a typical staged cake smash photo shoot but a more natural and spontaneous photo session outdoors. Our location was the forest next to Apenheul in Apeldoorn. A wonderful place for walking, picnicking and some adventure.

A Cosy November Day: Rotterdam Family Photography

As promised, here comes the second part of the reportage with Monique and her family in Rotterdam a few weeks ago.

At the beginning of our photoshoot the kids played at home, and then we went for a walk to the Heemraadspark. We had just enough time to enjoy the autumn colors and some sunshine before it got really grey and started to rain.

A Cozy Day in November: Rotterdam Family Photography

Today I want to share with you a family photoshoot I had in Rotterdam at the beginning of November. It was so much fun and the photos have such a nostalgic touch to them.

Monique and Sjan wanted a natural relaxed and freestyle photo session to capture their little daughters Sophie and Elise as they are now. Because Elise is still a baby and because it can be cold and rainy outside at this time of the year, we decided to start the photoshoot indoors and also to go out if the weather allows.

Photoshoot at the Beach: Family Photography in Wassenaar

Today I want to share some photos from an amazing family photo session at the beach. I have a weakness for family traditions and really like the idea of annual family reportages and Xmas pictures. They are more common with my expat clients, and I wish more Dutch families would discover this tradition. Regular photo sessions are awesome in showing the children change and grow.

Zanya and her beautiful family are expats living in Rotterdam, and over the past couple of years we have already explored some local parks together. Now, as their youngest daughter is getting older, Zanya had thought of a different and slightly further location, like a beach. So this time we held our photo session at the beach and forest of Wassenaar.

Sasha’s Birthday: Family Photo Session and a Children’s Party Reportage at Plaswijckpark in Rotterdam

Today I want to share with your some photos from a family and children’s party photo session in Rotterdam last summer.

Nadia and Sergey are a beautiful expat couple from Russia currently working and living in the Netherlands. With their little daughter Sasha turning three years old and a new baby on the way, they wanted to mark that moment in their lives with a natural style family photo shoot and to make Sasha’s birthday party all the more memorable with a reportage of the children’s feast.

A Morning in a Park: Rotterdam Family Photography

As a family photographer I capture precious moments of life for my clients: it is both a privilege for me, and a source of fun. And I love to see my dear clients back to document yet another episode of their story for them!

Last year I photographed this beautiful expat family in Rotterdam, and when I heard that Tuğçe wanted a new photo session I was very excited. I knew it must be a lot of fun again. This time we had chosen as our location another wonderful park in Rotterdam: Arboretum Trompenburg. This park has not many wide laws that are great for larger families. Instead it offers a plenty of routes to explore for couples and families with one or two children.

A “Girls’ Day”: Rotterdam Family Photographer

One of the things I enjoy as a family photographer working on location is that each photo shoot is very different and tells its own story. Today’s reportage is about a fun “girls’ morning” together, and I hope you will like it as much as I do.

A few years ago I photographed Petra and her two little daughters in Rotterdam. In the meantime the girls had grown quite a bit and got a baby sister! It was a good moment to update the family portraits. Petra wanted to photograph the sisters in a natural way as they play and have fun together. With a young baby it is a good choice to hold the photo session at one’s home. So we did, and the warm weather allowed us to spend some time in the garden as well.
