Mike Larson Tuscany Style Workshop

I met California-based international wedding photographer Mike Larson almost by accident in the spring of 2010 in Antwerp. Little did I know that Mike’s talk at Calumet would have such an influence on me as a photographer.  Later in the year I got an email from his office about small group consulting sessions througout Europe in November of 2010.  I wanted to know more and put together a group quickly. That session changed a zillion things for my business.

Then. came. Italy.

I was already booked for a destination wedding in Italy around the same time. So it made sense to head out there early and do the workshop. I posted about the workshop on Facebook.  Three fellow photographers, wanted to join me on my roadtrip to Tuscany. That trip in itself was epic!   Thank you Natalie, Patricia and Vinita for being my travelling companions. Vini thanks for keeping me awake for 20 hours just by interviewing me and asking me a zillion questions. I loved it!

Mike specializes in vineyard and estate weddings. This particular workshop is for photographers who want to specialize their business. Mike is hosting another one in Italy next week. Also he will be doing a workshop in The Netherlands in November. Be fast if you want to grab a spot, as day 1 is already sold out!

Below are a few of my shots taken during the 2-day workshop.

The gorgeous styling and stationery is by Vanessa from Alchemy Fine Events & Invitations. Her work blows me away.  I love her eye and style!

Waiting for Baby

The lovely Sofie and Ben are waiting for baby… Their little miracle is due in a few weeks time.

We met just before sunset in the Kalmthoutse Heide a few weeks ago for a shoot.  I loved this shoot so much! Both Ben and Sofie were a total delight to work with!  Their baby is blessed to have such loving parents.

The sad thing is that a bushfire hit this beautiul nature reserve while I was in Italy. De zwangerschapsfotografie met Sofie en Ben aan de Heide in Kalmthout.

Two Sisters

Our neighbours have two sweet granddaughters. And I got to shoot them last week. These girls were very shy to begin with, but they soon warmed up to my lens – and me.

Enjoy the images!

 

 

Loveshoot in the dunes

The weather was so beautiful that day.  Awesome luck… but it also meant a beached packed with people.

So I opted to shoot Claire and Koen in the dunes instead of the beach… Claire and Koen adopted twin boys in January. These two gorgeous babies joined mom and dad for their shoot!

Dear Claire and Koen, I can’t wait to shoot your wedding next month!

See you soon, T

 

 

A smile on my face

When Sandra booked me I was totally happy! Her son Yves is in my son’s class and is doing his first communion. For this occasion, they wanted some images of him and his little sister Manon.  Since I know these kids, they were very relaxed in front of the camera. No shying away here… The kids played and did their thing, while I got to capture the moments.  I ‘m so happy with all the awesome spots we have around here – these were taken a short drive from where we live.

A big thanks to Sandra for being amazing about meeting so late in the evening on a school night!  You guys are a true joy to photograph! Not only are you a stunning family, you were fun and great to be with!

Much love, T

 

 

 

A royal wedding!

A girl can dream, right? Well let them dream I say!  So they stayed home this afternoon to witness the wedding of the century with me.

They even dressed for the occasion… tiara’s and all! I’m sharing some images of our princesses, their wedding procession around the fireplace and practicing royal poses!

Life is a fairytale if you want it to be!

Many congrats to the royal couple!
