Behind the Lens

ABOUT me

I'm a hopeless romantic who finds great joy in creating and capturing connection and beauty wherever I go.

As a little girl, who grew up in the eastern part of Holland (Zwolle), I was always stealing the family camera. What touches me the most are the stories that come to life again as soon as a picture is shown. When I was sleeping over at my grandparents’ I was nosy and found a box with photographs. I showed them to my grandfather and the look on his face was priceless, he got a twinkle in his eyes and a smile so big. He told me how he and my grandma met 60 years ago and all his memories came back to life.

I personally experienced the value of photography in 2012 when my dear grandmother passed away. Pictures bring back memories, but what if all pictures get lost? Due to a mistake of the computer-man we lost everything. No single picture left. So whenever a family member shows me old pictures of her it makes me so emotional and brings back every memory I have with her. I’m so grateful that that picture was taken and stored for all those years. This makes making the photograph just as important as printing them. In an album or on a wall to always cherish the precious moments of life.

I hope we ever have a chance to meet and I feel truly honered to capturing your most special moments.

Love,

about me

My favorite place to go is the beach, but lately a walk through a park, hearing the birds sing, smelling the wood and totally being in the moment calms my mind.

We got Nala as a baby from 15 weeks old. She was the sweetest little kitten and so beautiful. However, as she got older her needs for being outside (due to her breed) were so strong that we had to give her away. She's now at a large home where she can play outside 24/7. She will always have a huge place in our hearts.

We loved visiting Paris, Cappadocia, Rome and Prague. Our bucket list includes: Africa, Finland, Thailand and a road trip in an old Volkswagen through France.

Travel

I love the cosiness at home with friends and family when the candles are lit, a nice blush rose, enough food on the table (like tapas snacks) and everybody is fully relaxed. That's what makes me really happy.

I'm not a fast reader. It can take me months to end a book, but having a good book helps. I recently read "De Zeven Zussen" (The Seven Sisters) and I'm currently reading "Je Bent Zoals Je Denkt" (You Are What You Think).

In 2016 we met and have never been apart since. In 2018 we bought our home in Heerhugowaard. We're completely different, but (cliche but true) he's my best friend, the person I trust the most and the one who's always in my team, even when we're not on the same page.
