Creativity has been in our family for generations. My great-grandfather was an art painter by profession. My grandfather and my father were good hobbyists and photographers.
At home we had a dark room, the development process was exciting. For as long as I can remember, I have owned a camera. When I had children of my own they became my beloved models.
After quite a busy working life, I intensified my photography passion. I always want to improve my skills by attending courses, reading about photography and experimenting. Eventually I came into contact with model photography and I knew that this is what I wanted to do.
It makes me so happy to work with a team, to connect to people, to find new friendships and share feelings and emotions.
My work improved enormously the last few years. I received many awards from Facebook groups and have had several images published.
My studio, being an old stable, is based in The Betuwe near Culemborg, The Netherlands. It gives me a lot of opportunities to work and express myself. It can be transformed in a living room as well as a water pool. The backdrops are mostly home-made. I love to create a painterly effect in my photographs to tell the story. My inspiration comes from paintings, stories or a special object. Beforehand there is a lot of thinking involved to come to a certain creation.
My husband is my great support in my work. He assists during the photo shoots and keeps a close eye on the personal welfare of everyone. As traveling is a part of our lifestyle as well, we have many opportunities to shoot. My camera is always in my bag resulting in beautiful memories of our trips.
