That's me. You don't like yourself in front of the camera so much? Let me help you relax and feel comfortable and love seeing yourself in the photo with your family.

And if you don't like your photos?

I pay you the session fee back!

What is your style and approach?

I love for you to get a balanced mix of some posed and mostly relaxed and authentic photographs.


It is important to me to get to know your family before your session, so I can create a loose session plan which suits all your personalities and vibes. I will create opportunities for fun and playful interactions, cuddly moments and beautiful connections between all of you.


I direct and guide you guys but also observe and document, ultimately, being able to show you who you are, not only how you look like.

But I do not feel comfortable being in the photo!

Mama, I got you. Me too. For our family photo session, I needed half a bottle of bubbles to feel relaxed. Whatever works for you. I am here to guide you and tell you how to move or pose in order for you to look relaxed and yet beautiful. The chin, the arms, ... I know. Trust me.


PS: Your children love you in the photos - no matter what - they see your heart, your love and soul. But I'll do my best to make you see the same.

How do we book with you?

Payment. After we've decided that we are a good team, you'll sign your contract and pay the retainer (session fee) of $150 to secure your session date and time.


Rescheduling. We would like your children to feel at their best. If your child is not feeling right or sick, please get in touch and we will arrange for one other day. I appreciate you keeping a sick child to yourself. Vice versa I would reschedule if I am sick in order to not pass anything on to your family.

How can we prepare for our photo session?

After you filled out or in your questionnaire, I will create a session plan tailored to your family. This evolves around favourite family activities or daily routines and locations meaningful to you.


Your home does not need to be tidy and meticulous everywhere, but I may push away bits and pieces, which would otherwise only distract in the photo. I do not do Photoshop.


Please wear whatever you and your family feel comfortable in. Clothes should rather compliment than match. However, for some formal portraits, clothes with big logos would be distracting.

How long does a session take?

That depends on you and your family. You might be worried that children act up and hubby doesn't like being in photos either. We can make it short and sweet or take our time. I would allow up to 1.5 hours in order to get a nice variety of relaxed, fun and posed photographs. But it can be as quick as 20 minutes.

When and how many photographs will we get?

When you book a session with me, I am 100% yours and dedicate my time and creativity fully to you, your session and your photos. I'll get them curated and ready for you within two days.


You can expect around 70 photographs, which will be ready for you to view in your private online gallery. Your gallery will be open for 30 days and gives you the opportunity to go through and decide what you would like to do with your photos. If you need help and inspiration, I am there for you.
