You guys, I wish I could share every single photo I took for this book. Yes my friends my dream came true: doing all photography for a cookbook! All on film obviously. I am super honored I got asked by SNOR and Holy Kauw for this book all about Lemonades. We had so much fun creating this -on the darkest, shortest days of the year in January mind you!
Don't you just love how easy it is to order some food and get it delivered right to you at any place, any time? Or just get some take away, take your bike to the river and have a romantic dinner for two without all the kitchen stuff? It's just so easy! Well I sure do now and then (not too often or I'll get lazy)! And my guilty pleasure is pizza. That being said, it was so much fun to do this shoot for SUGO pizza together with stylist-friend Anne van Midden. Friends, organic pizza, italian beer, a city like Rotterdam and some killer tiramisu to top it off (seriously I have been dreaming about that tiramusi for days after shooting this!). What more do you need? Double fun to have used my own garden in some shots hihi! styling: Anne van Midden/Inspire Styling
In the middle of 2017 I went to Portugal together with Sofie van den Enk to document her experiences in a beautiful small retreat for another piece in Yoga Magazine. We had so much fun sharing a room, walking to the beach and just doing nothing at all. And of course Sofie did amazing yoga sessions every day. What a blessing to call this work right? The newest issue of Yoga Magazine is now in stores, be sure to check it out and read the story about how Sofie find ways to fight her depression and how she experienced being on this corner of Europe for a whole week. Some of favorite outtakes below:
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?
