The world is filled with beautiful people, moments and places. It’s up to us really, how much we appreciate them and want to keep them close in our hearts and memories. I fell in love with my camera for exactly this reason: it is a wonderful tool to keep so many happy feelings and occasions alive through the years, generations and, well, LIFE. It is not the only way, but it is a great one!
I find it absolutely astounding that a camera can capture emotions so well. Photographs can make us smile and laugh (or even cry: hopefully the happy tears!) many years later. Even though I look at photography as an art and always strive to be able to capture the beautiful side of life in its most authentic and original way, I have to admit that I do love candid photography too. There is something so real and honest about unposed pictures that often they can give any piece of art a run for its money. I am here to help you enjoy and capture your happy experience and record it in a polished professional way to be remembered for many years to come.
And just a few words about myself. I have travelled the world quite a bit with my family and for business. In fact, traveling is my second acquired passion in life, which goes hand in hand with the first (photography). I lived in Europe (The Netherlands) for a long time and my husband proposed to me in Paris (in an untraditional way UNDER the Eiffel Tower as opposed to ON it, as it happened to be closed that day). That is why Paris will always have a special warm place in my heart. I have two fun but rather mischievous daughters: a teenager and a toddler. A large age gap, however, does not stop them from being on one team for good or bad.
I currently live in the Chicago area and do personal and lifestyle photography mainly in the City and its Northern and North West suburbs. If you live further from Chicagoland, however, don’t let that hold you back. I like seeing places. So if you heard about me or saw something on these pages which made you curious if I am the right person to take pictures of you and your loved ones please reach out to me on my Contacts page. I will be thrilled to hear from you and chat about your ideas, expectations and plans. I am confident we can make it work!
