Homesession - photosession at home (8)

Lena and Jeff

 

It’s such a privilege to shoot in people’s homes. Even more so with returning clients. I was lucky enough to be invited to the home of Lena and Jeff and their mom Wendy. I’m sharing a few of my favourite images here.

X Tanja Det er altid så koselig å komme hjem til gamle kunder. For en ære å få lov til å dokumentere familier I  hjemmene sine. For tre år siden fotograferte jeg lille Lena som baby. I midlertid er Lena blitt storesøster till Jeff. En liten fin gutt som smilte fra øre til øre hele tiden.Deler gjerne noen bilder fra en trivelig formiddag hjemme med Lena og Jeff og mammaen deres Wendy.

On milestones and motherhood

This was going to be about my youngest child Lisa.But it’s not…really. I have to admit that – rather selfishly – it’s about me. About myself as a mother and my feelings of powerlessness with the passing of time. I sit here and realise that yet again time has slipped through my fingers.

There is an ambivalence to seeing  our kids grow up.  As a mother I want them to be happy, do well and grow into mindful, confident and compassionate adults.  But with each birthday I can’t help but feel a sense of sadness creeping up on me.  Why is there no pause or rewind button on these kids???

Lisa is our youngest. Our little surprise who makes our lives very eventful. She went from baby to toddler at warp speed. My baby who was wide awake and looked me straight in the eye from day one. This one was going places and wasn’t wasting any time. Clever little thing! It feels as if she came into this world only yesterday, yet today is her last day in preschool.

So here we are… all preschooled out. Ready for a new chapter. We officially have three schoolkids now. Wow… there I said it.

You go girl, go and spread your beautiful wings. Be your best self and follow your kind heart, my little starchild!

I love you.

Mommy.

Here she is on her first day at preschool on the left, and with her diploma at her graduation.

Ik zou een stukje schrijven over mijn jongste dochtertje Lisa, maar eigenlijk gaat het gewoon over mezelf. Over moederschap en tijd… hoe de tijd vliegt en onze kindjes niet te stoppen zijn. Hierbij foto’s van de diplomauitreiking van de derde kleuterklas. Op naar een nieuw hoofdstuk!

Baby Jeff

First part of a sibling homesession I did. A few years ago I photographed big sister Lena when she was 8 months old.  I was excited to photograph her baby brother this time!

Sharing a few shots of baby brother Jeff now. More from this session later. De foto’s van de kleine baby Jeff die 10 maanden oud is. Wat een heerlijk en blij ventje was het toch!

XOXO Tanja

Pippa, Suze and Damon

I can’t tell you how thrilled I was to photograph my dear friend Damon and his family! I had the pleasure of spending a day with him and his wife Suze, their one-year old girl Pippa and teckel Beer.

Love you guys to bits!

PS Starting with a few unseen shots that I got of Pippa when she was still a baby…

XOXO

Laura

It was without at doubt the coldest month of March in ages. Winter had put nature on hold and it looked and felt like full winter. But the clock was ticking and communion shoots were up on the agenda.

In order to finish the sessions in time, I decided to make our home double as a natural light studio. Our home is spacious and light. And I knew it would make the perfect backdrop.

And so it was that I photographed Laura in her light communion dress right here in this house. Communiefotografie voor het communiekaartje van communiekant Laura
