Maternity Photography in The Netherlands (11)

Waiting for baby

I had the privilege of spending an afternoon in Utrecht with Rina Mae and Bram, documenting them as a couple… waiting for their first born son. They are such amazing people and I feel so blessed to be their photographer during these special and life changing times.

These moments are precious… Having your first baby is a lifechanging and rewarding experience.

You only have your first baby once. Cherish every moment.

Take it from a mom who knows. De bolle buiken sessie van Rina Mae en Bram. Zij verwachten in mei een baby en wilden deze bijzondere momenten met z’n tweetjes graag laten vastleggen. Een baby krijgen verandert alles. Het is wonderlijk en mooi.

Fondly,
Tanja

Interviewed by Bruid&Bruidegom Magazine

[wpcol_1third id=”” class=”” style=””]I’m a bit overwhelmed by this.

I was recently interviewed by Bruid&Bruidegom magazine about winning the Bruidsfoto Award. I had never been interviewed before and didn’t think too much about it at the time.

It wasn’t until I received my copy and saw it in print that the reality of it all hit me.

Thank you kind people of Bruid&Bruidegom magazine. I am so honoured.[/wpcol_1third] [wpcol_2third_end id=”” class=”” style=””] [/wpcol_2third_end]

Target Practice

My kids are hardly impressed by my camera… They are my most challenging subjects.

Photographing children takes practice – a lot of practice. And what better way to practice than shooting my own lovelies. So off I went with my girls to this little field at the end of our street.

Here I’m sharing a few shots from my most recent target practice session with Emma and Lisa. They gave me a good run for the money.

Enjoy
xoxo

Beach shoot in Cadzand

What a lovely family Ann and Yves have! Their kids are in the same school as ours and are good friends. I was delighted when they asked me to photograph them. Due to bad weather we had to reschedule… and on the day of the shoot we headed out to the beach in 28degrees C only to arrive in a dense fog at about 15degrees. It was freezing and the sun was nowhere to be found. Although fog is amazing to shoot in, it is cold, and can quickly become too chilly for small children. Thankfully the sun came out after a while. Here are a few shots from an amazing day at the beach in Zeeland in The Netherlands.

Thank you Ann and Yves for having me as your family photographer.

<3 you guys! De wonderlijke shoot met Ann en Yves en hun drie kinderen in Cadzand. We hebben genoten tijdens de ochtenduren aan het bijna lege strand. Het was zo fijn  om een voormiddag met dit fijne gezin door te brengen.

xoxo, T

 

 

 

 

Sarah and Tom – a loveshoot in Antwerp

Last week, I had the pleasure of photographing Sarah and Tom in Antwerp. Again we lucked out on the weather, and what had been a day of rain and dreary weather ended in a gorgeous evening with warm light.
These images are taken at het Eilandje and the MAS museum, one of Antwerp’s most recent landmarks. De loveshoot van Sarah en Tom aan het eilandje in Antwerpen. Tijdens de avond aan de Schelde, met de voeten in het zand aan een strandbar. Heerlijk toeven was het samen met dit verloofde stel.

Winner of the Bruidsfoto Award 2012 – Emotions category, people’s choice award.

Last night, my photograph was awarded with the prestigious Bruidsfoto Award in the Emotions category.

Dance

My girls will dance whenever they get a chance.
Commanding their faithful audience (that’s us!) to watch closely as they twirl around in their little tutus.

So dance… my girls.

Be carefree and enjoy!

Love,

mama.
