Pure Happiness: A Family Reportage in Zeeland

Today I want to share with you some images from a photo session at the sea.

Marloes and Jerry live in Rotterdam with their two children, Chloé and Lucas, and are expecting a third child soon.

A photo session was a gift from Marloes’ mother Anneke: she knew it was the right gift and the perfect time for a special photo reportage for her daughter and her family.

Marloes, Jerry and the kids are active and athletic and all wanted a natural outdoor setting for their reportage. There are many great outdoor locations for a photo session, but their choice was easy as they had a special location in mind: not only beautiful and inspiring but also meaningful for their family. It was an amazing beach at Valkenisse on Walcheren in the sunny province of Zeeland.

This is a place where Marloes spent a lot of time as a child at her parents’ beach house – and so do her own children now. A most picturesque place, where you can breathe the sea and let the feeling of happiness and freedom fill you. And we were blessed with the weather too!

When you look at the photos it seems that the family almost had the beach “for themselves”. The secret of owning the beach was to get up early!
