Three ladies, one white wall

These three ladies asked me to take their portrait during my stay in Moerbisch am See, Austria and "Designtage der Scrapqueens" back in September, and also asking me to make them 10 years younger:) For the record I didn't have to "do" anything to make them look young and fresh, they did that all by themselves:)


Scenes from a photo workshop

My favorite pictures from my photo workshop today! We had fun didn't we:):)

Margrethes day in the "sun"...

And finally I managed to find time to upload pictures from this photoshoot with Margrethe and her new family that I had during our visit to Norway last August. We had big plans for this shoot, letting the kids run around in their big and beautiful garden, family pictures in the grass while enjoying the sun and the idyllic surroundings. Right! Alas! On this day, and this day only, the weather gods decided to have fun with us and opened up the sky so we could get all wet and cold, forcing us to get creative, rearrange their living room and up the ISO on my camera. Taking the light conditions and the restricted space into consideration, I have to say these pics turned out pretty nice and I really love how relaxed and natural this family acted in front of my scary lens. The little one was also pretty relaxed until we started to undress her for naked pictures. She didn't really agree to those:)

A hidden gem..

I found this hidden gem while going through my photos this morning. I have so many photos to go through and expect to find many more, but for now I wanted to show little DD on the Hilversumse hei (moorland), way back when it was still warm and nice (this was actually in May). Have a great day!!! Greetings from sunny Holland!

A fun family..

De Wijnlijst - wine and food, the best combination

I've mentioned it before; some time ago I was assigned to take pictures for South-Africas next Nigella Lawson, Madri Victor Gerber, and now her web-site, De Wijnlijst, is finally online and ready for viewing. It was one of the best photoshoots I have ever had, mainly because I got to eat my subjects after photographing them:) And I think you can see for yourself how good it was. Madri is starting her own business, offering wine testing- and high wine parties in Amsterdam and the surrounding areas, and I can vouch for both wine and food, it is absolutely divine!! I'm already looking forward to taking pictures for Madris planned cook book:)

Sofias first communion pictures

This is lovely Sofia and her family on her first communion. Sofia looked and felt like a princess in her beautiful white dress, and cherished the chance to be a model for the day. I especially love the pictures of her and her little funny face brother:)

Finally an update....

I know I haven't been around lately and I am sorry for all of you that drop by and don't find anything new. It's hard to find enough time at the moment, for all the things I want to do, and I have had to prioritize. Sadly blogging hasn't been on top of the list:( But photographing has been. So I have loads and loads of pictures to go through and I also have a new project going that I will tell you about later. Fun stuff. And I have a photography workshop planned in Austria in September, so I will tell you all about it later as well.

But for now, I can show you some cool pictures of these lovely siblings. We had a fun shoot just around the corner from where I live, and it resulted in me getting newly cut grass all over me:) Well, it was all worth it to get these shots.....
