How a Photo Session Works
I believe in artistic approach and attention to detail and want every aspect of your experience with me to be personal and perfect: from our initial consultation and the photo session itself to the tangible artworks for you and your family.
I am a portrait and children's photographer based in Rotterdam and I work on location throughout the Netherlands and also abroad.
Read my clients' stories on their experience with my portrait sessions and with children photography.
I offer full service and a range of top-quality products for discerning clients. Here is what you can expect when you book a photo session with me:
You choose a professional photographer for their vision and style. As an award winning portrait and fine art photographer I use my artistic intuition to create images that are timeless.
My photographic style had been described as natural and lively, classic and elegant, nostalgic and magical.
I don't impose the same style on everybody but seek an approach reflecting your own personality best.
The Luxury of Individual Approach
To make your portraits truly personal and your photo session a relaxed and pleasant experience I offer you all my time and attention.
When planning your photo session we will define what is it, you are looking for. The day of the photo session is entirely yours: I won't book anybody before or after you but focus on your session. There is plenty of time and freedom so that you can relax and be yourself. My guidance is unobtrusive and when the posing we use is organic.
During a personal ordering session I can assist you with choosing the right products, formats and materials.
Comfort and Fun
Our photo session takes place on location of your choice or in the comfort of your home. A combination of both within one session is also possible.
Spontaneous and beautiful expressions in the midst of your trusted environment or at some inspiring place. Genuine memories of fun and special experience.
Here you can read more about the advantages of a professional photo session at home and on location.
Natural Light and Natural Feel
I am a big fan of natural light and prefer to use it whenever possible.
It has a special beauty and purity to it and allows to convey the true atmosphere of the moment.
Plenty of Time: the Indispensable Luxury
Our portrait session usually lasts 1 to 2 hours. Enough time for you to come at ease and to have fun, and maybe even try out more outfits and locations!
Photo session is a creative process on both sides.
We talk about your wishes in advance and you are welcome to bring in those dreams and creative ideas that you have. We will also improvise and experiment. Our photo session is about being yourself and exploring yourself.
Timeless Custom Photography
I preselect the best images and give them the attention they deserve. Not only regular editing (such as color correction and basic retouching), but also artistic enhancement.
Think of classic or nostalgic Black & White reportages, of colorful joie de vivre stories, or even of entering the realm of dreams and magic!
We want exquisite results, so there is no “factory” approach to post-processing. I don't rely on pre-made filters, actions or presets for quick and trendy effects but enhance each image individually.
I also want to keep your portraits timeless and avoid digital over-manipulation.
Enjoy your Portraits Soon
I know how exciting it is for you to wait for your photos! And I want the emotion to be still fresh in my senses during the processing. So I schedule a limited amount of sessions per month and give each one my full attention. Your images are normally ready for viewing already within 2 weeks after the session.
Deluxe photo products
One 20x30 cm art print and some digital images in low resolution are already included in your session arrangement. Naturally, there are more prints, individually designed albums and custom collections to order!
During the ordering session I will show you samples of various products so that you can feel them in your hands and try against your walls. I can also make digital simulations for you to preview how particular photos will look like on your own walls in different sizes or frames, and how they would work together in various combinations.
I work with the best quality producers (including those with exclusive technology and hand-made products) and personally control all products before delivering them to you.
Last but not least…
Yes, this is true – I offer a full satisfaction guarantee!
In case you are not totally happy with your photos, I will offer you a free re-shoot or a full refund of your session fee without any discussion.
Your photo session is free from any risk or worries. Which makes it even more fun!
