There is nothing better than watching the photographs from a session. To see the result up close on my laptop. It is like receiving a gift, a special present that I get to see first. This family session felt like a nice treat.

We have been so lucky again with the weather and little Lisa has been such a joy so sweet. She knows two words which are car and cow so every car, bicycle, plane was car and every animal was cow. She pointed at every moving thing in sight. Here my selection of this nice afternoon we spend in the Amsterdamse Bos.

Home Improvement: If you can't stand the heat...

Here an update on our home improvement project. We can cook again. Yes it was quite an undertaking but yes we can cook. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong when they installed the kitchen, but yes we can cook. A lot of things need to be delivered but yes we can cook.

So I am a happy lady. As soon as the floor has been installed we can finally put the furniture back, I can not wait. Then still a lot of things have to be done but being able to seat on my couch again is priceless.

Details, details the groom

Category: Photography | Wedding

Only a couple of years ago all the attention in wedding photography was on the bride. The big reveal from the stairs had to be one of the shots in the wedding album. This trend in bridal photography has changed dramatically as now the whole preparation is a big part of wedding photography and the wedding album. It is the beginning of the story and I think should be captured whether the photographer is there for a couple of hours or for the whole day.

Usually the groom would literally be in the picture when he would come to get his bride to take her to the courthouse or church. Now again a shift is visible, as the preparation of the groom is becoming more important. What to photograph? The shoes, the suit, adjusting the tye, tying a shoe lace or adjusting the cufflinks. As a fan of details I like this shift in wedding photography because it brings more balance in an album but it also gives the bride insight in how he her husband to be, is preparing for this big day. A moment they experience separate from one another but now can actually share.

Family Preview: Denny, Dewi & Lisa

She just turned 1 year and can almost walk this little girl is simply adorable and yesterday I had the privilege to do a family shoot with little Lisa and her mom Dewi and pap Denny. We went to the Amsterdamse Bos which is not far from their house and had a walk around. We even saw Scottish Oxen that walk about freely in the forrest. As Dewi and Denny hardly have photographs of them together we took some time to shoot a mini engagement session.

I love how they turned out. Here the first preview.

When I was shooting Sandra this weekend I was asked to photograph Jacqueline (the farmers wive) with her horse. I was very willing to oblige because she had been so very hospitable to us all day. So we got the big guy out and persuaded him with a juicy apple to look nice in the shots. At first he did not want to stay within the frame of my camera but when Jacqueline looked at him nicely he became the perfect horse and I could capture them together. And they look pretty perfect!

So after I was done Jacqueline asked me if I could shoot one more image but this time of her and her son. Off course! So we went back to the hay stack and well one shot turned into a mini sessie.

A very big thanks to Jacqueline, her husband Jan and their son Niels for having us on Saturday and allowing us to shoot around the farm and enabling me to get all those great shots.
