I always say a portrait session is the best gift a woman could give herself. Every one to two years I also invest in another photographer and book a portrait session for myself and every now and then I take an afternoon off to take self-portraits. Sometimes because I'm in a right mood and sometimes to process certain feelings or events.

 

Often we wait for an occasion such as a relationship or a pregnancy to book a photoshoot. Especially in Dutch culture we're not used to claiming the spotlight for a minute and celebrating ourselves. But pictures are one of the few things that are something truly timeless and a joy for the rest of your life. If you think about who you were just 5 years ago, I want to bet many things have changed. That's why I think a portrait session is so powerful: it's a celebration of who you are at that particular moment in time and it's amazing to be able to remember that for the rest of your life.

Whenever you're ready, feel free to contact me! During an intake we can discuss how we can create the most beautiful setting to capture you being the best version of yourself.
