When were you last photographed together as a family? The busy days merge into years and the beautiful chaos of family life becomes a blur. Take some time out to realise the beauty that is right now and to create images that will be priceless for your children in years to come.
Shoots are done in my studio in Leidsche Rijn in Utrecht. Portraits in studio are classic and timeless and are all about faces and connections between people without worrying about the weather or any distractions from outside.
Before your shoot, we'll meet or chat on the phone to go through some images and gather ideas on how you would like to be photographed and if you would like anything specific for your shoot. Is there a place in your home where a large frame would look amazing? Would you like to look through an album of your photos in 20 years time? Is there a specific photo you would love to create? We'll also go over wardrobe and how to prepare for your session.
What to wear/bring
Generally, plainer, simpler clothes without crazy patterns and stripes and logos work best. For outdoor shoots, lighter tones look better - greys, blues, yellows, corals, dusty pinks, ivories, denims and whites.
For studio shoots a mix of light and dark can work very well. Blacks, greys, reds or anything you feel great in.
Don't be afraid to mix in a little pop of colour or some pattern/accessories that can tie colour tones together.
I offer in-person photo reveal and ordering appointments two to three weeks after your photo session.
I do this for a few reasons - firstly for your convenience. I have a system for helping clients decide between images, showing similar images side by side for easy selection, and assisting people with getting great variety for albums and the perfect wall art pieces. Because I will show a lot of beautiful images, it can be overwhelming to choose on your own and I don't want my customer service to stop at the photo shoot. The in-person photo reveal is my favourite part of the whole process. I l absolutely love seeing my client's reactions to their images!
If it's not practical for you to come back to my studio, we can meet online on Zoom where you can choose your favourite images.
I offer high quality fine art prints, framed wall collections and fine art albums to display your photos. I understand the need for digital images and an equivalent-sized digital image is included with every print purchased so you can make your own reprints.
Have a look here through some of the products that I offer.
Every image presented to you will be fully retouched to make you look your best. No need to worry about that pimple that pops up the morning, your two year old with a scratch on the face or a snotty baby.
Session fees begin at €350 and include professional hair and make-up for mom. For further details on pricing, please look here.
