Portraits

Natural and fun portraits capturing you in the best possible light.

...natural portraits capturing you in the best possible light...

I love portraits – portraits are how photography started for me. The very first photos I ever took were all portraits of my friends. I could spend hours taking their picture on an old digital camera. 

Even though I often work with couples and families nowaday, my love for portrait photography is still going strong. 

My portrait style

If you’re after perfect, smooth and posed studio-type photographs, then I might not be the right photographer for you. I love natural lifestyle photography, in documentary style with a slight vintage (film) vibe. Is this the style you’re after? Then we might be a match – yay!

Where?

One thing that is really important for my portrait sessions is the location: I want you to feel 100% comfortable and relaxed, and this is easiest achieved if we pick a location that you know and love. This can be a walk through your city, through the dunes or along the beach, or in your own garden or living room. 

When?

To create the kind of dreamy and soft vibe you can see in my photos, I recommend meeting on a sunny or slightly cloudy day, around an hour before sunset. This ‘golden hour’, as it’s called, creates the most beautiful natural light you can wish for in photography, with soft shadows and contrasts. If you’re more of a morning person also the first hour after sunrise is a great choice. Also cloudy days can be great for portraits, though. The clouds act like a massive softbox, filtering the sunlight.
