My Bio

Professional Journey

Welcome, and  I am thrilled you came to visit me today!

I was born and raised in Holland and moved to New York, NY when I was only 17 years old seeking adventure.   Soon after I relocated to San Francisco,  I found my home among some very talented and passionate artists which got me inspired to pursue my own artistic passion.  I quickly found myself behind the lens of a camera. and realized that being a photographer was my passion and I was in awe of how a single image could tell such a moving story about life, living, and humanity itself.  This passion led me to travel the world photographing people, wildlife, nature, and landscapes. 

Today I bring my passion and experiences to my clients.

Let me tell your story by capturing you, your loved ones, and your special events in powerful images that you can revisit for years to come. 

As a photographer, I want to make my clients feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. Do you feel awkward posing and smiling in front of the camera? We all do right?

I offer indoor and outdoor photo sessions for you and your family where you can relax and just be yourself while I create the most amazing portraits you can imagine—all while having fun!

While I prefer doing my photo sessions outdoors, I understand that sometimes the weather and other reasons will interfere with the outdoor experience and we may need to take your photo session indoors. No problem! Your home and your space will be a perfect location as well as my studio space where we can use different backgrounds for extra convenience. Together we will create beautiful, authentic, and fun images that you will love and cherish. 

Furthermore,  I love to travel and visit new places so I am happy to capture real life moments of you, your family, and your friends in everyday life at the convenience of your home, your favorite park, playground, town and other lovely locations you may have in mind. We will collaborate and I will invite you to a private Pinterest board where we can both lists pictures and ideas about your photo shoot. 

I will make you and your loved ones feel relaxed and comfortable as I capture your special moments through my lens. 

Thanks, and I am looking forward to talking with you soon!
