Liesbeth, Max and Ella

I met Liesbeth through Annelies when we photographed part of her maternity session at Liesbeth’s house. I was over the moon happy when she called me for a session with her two kids.

It was just so wonderful to see Ella warm up to my lens. I’m so blessed with the most amazing clients!

Liesbeth and Annelies are fellow mompreneurs who run Studio ToutPetit together. Be sure to check out their blog dedicated to European baby and kids’ style. Ik had het geluk gecontacteerd te worden door Liesbeth voor een sessie bij haar thuis. Haar huis is een droom om in te fotograferen, met veel licht, design meubelen en heerlijke grote ruimtes. Geniet mee van de sessie bij Liesbeth, Max en Ella.

Thank you Liesbeth, for having me as your photographer.

XO, T

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

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.

Emma’s communion

My friend Els and I go way back… we were once in the same class. She found love early and soon had two beautiful girls.  I had the privilege of shooting her girl Giulia two years ago, and now it was her Emma’s turn.

Emma always hated to have her picture taken… until that day.

Els, thank you for having me as your photographer… maybe one day you will let me photograph you together with your fabulous girls!

Much love, De communieshoot van Emma voor haar plechtige communie.

When did you turn 6?

This is a hard one to write. Why, I’m not sure.

Emma is our second child.  I cannot explain how wonderful it was to know that we were having a girl after an amazing little boy.  Emma came into our lives and made everything pink!

Emma Louise is such an amazing little girl. She’s our little thinker. The girl who communicates with butterflies and God and comes up with the most amazing storylines for Ken and Barbie’s life.  Being gifted never comes without baggage. And her sensitivity is something we’ve learned to help her with. Being able to talk about her feelings has been a huge outlet for her.

This little girl is growing up so fast – almost too fast. Maybe that’s why it has taken me forever to write this post. I get so emotional when I see time slipping away and my children growing up. Each new year is celebrated, but a part of me just wants to rewind and cuddle my babies just once more.  I wish I could.

I’m sharing a few shots of my Em – who never seizes to amaze me.

xoxo
