'Way too fast' is a phrase I use all of the time. The weekend went by way too fast, the holidays went by way too fast and the years go by way too fast. I see my kids growing up so quickly and wish it would slow down. With photography I want to capture life just as it is right now as I already know how much I'm going to miss it.

I am a family photographer based near Haarlem and Amsterdam in the Netherlands, mostly I have focused on capturing my kids as they grow up but have also offered documentary family sessions at weekends.

Unfortunately I am no longer able to take on any client work at the moment. I will keep my website going and hopefully will be back sometime in the future. In the meantime I will be saving my weekends for my kids.

If you are looking for documentary family photographers, there are so many talented people out there and I would be more than happy to recommend some for you, just send me an email.

A huge thank you to all the lovely people I have photographed over the years, who have invited me into their homes and their lives. It has been a pleasure and an honour.
