So much fun photographing Nicole Buch and her home for Wendy Magazine! I love taking portraits of people who are full of life and full of stories about their life, Nicole told me so much about her home and herself. And those curls ahhh! Hair & make-up by Marjolijn Muis. Thanks guys! For more photos check the latest Wendy Magazine :)
On a warm summer afternoon Floor welcomed me in her beautiful green vegetable garden. As I was just making my first steps into growing my own vegetables (since we moved and I now finally had a garden!) this was so much fun to learn from Floor and photograph her. I think there should be classes in school teaching our children how to grow and harvest vegetables because even though a vegetable garden like this is a lot of work and can be very hard there are some vegetables that are fairly easy to grow. Did you know that during World War II you had so had 'Victory Gardens' where people grew their own food to provide for themselves, their family and to not use all the food that was supposed to go to the troops? It's a very interesting read. Anyway, back to Floor and her garden! Follow her Dutch blog Floor's Moestuin if you are looking for any tips & tricks for your vegetable garden.
I am so glad this talented lady mailed me to do a portrait session for her new website. Thyrza sings, writes, acts and does voice-overs, she is truly a busy bee and such an uplifting spirit to be around. Looking for some portraits of yourself? Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org for all the info & get the magic started! Bewaren
Oh I went to the top of a mountain in Italy and came back with a suitcase full of photos alright. It was a pleasure to work for Yoga Magazine and meet and shoot Jessica Durlacher. This retreat sure is a magical place. See some of my personal favorites below. Yoga Magazine #3 is now available in (Dutch) stores!
I usually don't blog tons of photos in one post because I am a big believer of 'image fatique' and I rarely get to the bottom of a blogpost from someone else when it has so many photos BUT hear me out this time! Let me take you to Athens, to the streets filled with orange trees and the beautiful wooden doors. The soft light all the different places to sit and enjoy a beer. I shot this beautiful city for Time to Momo (Dutch travel guide) with a list of addresses in one hand and my trusty camera in the other. I was happy to have Mario with me too to enjoy this city together, we both never went to Athens before. At the end of these 3 days we discussed our favorite thing from the trip and we both answered: Areopagus. A huge rock that you can climb and from where you have a beautiful view over the city (as you can see in the photo above). Next time we bring a bottle & some food up there! For Dutchies, you can read all of the must sees & tips along with my photos here.
Some of the portraits I took for Avenue Lifestyle who is now owned by not only Holly Marder but also Hedda Pier. I am so excited for these ladies to merge into 1 rock solid business. Taking (business) portraits is a field of photography I enjoy very much. This location Spaces in The Hague is a dream! Check out the full story here. In need of (new) portraits for your business? I would love to think along and create something beautiful for you, contact me to get started!
