Women, Fabulous Over 40


Astrid came into my studio in Driebergen for a photoshoot on the Fabulous Over 40 Campaign. She had a shoot done when she was 23 with a hat and wanted to recreate similar images as a comparison in time. We had lots of fun playing around!

If your friends/family had to describe you in 3-4 words, what would they say?

Creative, compassionate, busy bee

What would you say is your best emotional quality?


What is your occupation and how do you like to spend your free time?

I'm an IT implementation consultant
Free time: writing, DIY, caring for animals, dancing, spending time in nature, etc. etc.

What is your favourite poem, quote or saying?

"Don't do to others what you don't want others to do to you."
I believe the world would be a happier place if everyone tried to live by this motto.

What advice would you give your 20-year old self looking back?

When people treat you badly, it says nothing about you, but a lot about them.
Also, don't spend your life worrying about what other people think (I'm still working on that one).

What are your thoughts on aging?

I still feel like a 25-year-old, sometimes it's weird that my mirror doesn't reflect that.

Do you still have a dream or big goal that you would love to accomplish?

I'm still not sure what I want to be when I grow up!
