A little about me.
I love yoga and liquorice
My happy place is under the sea
I scream when I see leeches and tear up when I see true happiness
I’m originally from the Netherlands and developed an interest in photography from the age of 16. As a result of spending many hours experimenting in the dark room before digital was available, I developed a keen eye for photography.
In 1999 I travelled around the world for a year, developing way too many rolls of film along the way (these days are gone now). I arrived in Sydney in December 1999 and met the love of my life, husband and father of my 2 beautiful boys.
Fast forwarding many years: I live in The Illawarra South of Sydney and am a proud mother of two boys. I worked as an Early Childhood teacher for many years and established my photography business in 2011. Since then I have worked with amazing, creative people and have established my true love for photography.
I love working with adults and children and always walk away from a photo shoot feeling energised. I realise that photography is a passion I cannot deny myself off. When I am at a photo shoot and the adrenaline is running through my body and feel thrilled with excitement when I see that perfect shot developing through my camera.
I take a lot of pride in my work and seek to improve my photography skills by remaining openminded, always try to find creativity within, but mostly simply enjoy the shoot.
Due to my background working with children I am aware of the importance of keeping your children safe. I have a Working with Children Check number and am happy to send you a copy if preferred. Finally if you do not wish for your photos to be used on my website kindly contact me to discuss.
