Josefien

Little girls grow up so fast. It had been awhile since I last saw Josefien but she still has that twinkle in her eye.

I’m sharing a few shots from her communion shoot.  Ik deel hierbij een paar beelden van de communie fotografie van Josefien op de Heide in Kalmthout.

Baby Junior – a newborn session in Utrecht

I love this session so much! I had the pleasure of photographing new parents Rina and Bram a while back… And it warms my heart! You may remember the parents from when they were waiting for baby. I was blessed enough to capture their newborn baby boy a coulple of weeks after the maternity shoot.

Baby Bram Junior was eager to meet his mom and dad. Thus he was welcomed into this world early.

Here are some of my favorite shots of Rina, Bram and their baby Junior.

Much love,

T Een newborn sessie in het hart van Utrecht. Baby Bram was amper twee weken oud toen ik hem mocht fotograferen tijdens een homestory bij mama Rina Mae en papa Bram thuis.

At home with baby Vic

Baby Vic had just turned one. He is his mommy and daddy’s little bundle of joy.

I was so happy to be invited into their home for a session with their little prince. I’m sharing a few of my favorites from the session I did at home with baby Vic!

xo Een wonderlijke homestory met baby Vic die net een jaar oud was geworden. Hij kroop rond en trok zich recht aan alles wat hij vond. Heerlijk om zo bij de mensen thuis te mogen fotograferen en deze bijzondere momenten vast te leggen.

Themed Loveshoot by Tanja de Maesschalk www.tanjademaesschalk.com (5)

Moving in together – a loveshoot

Sometimes you find your soulmate when you’re not looking. Things happen – and they happen for a reason.

Seeing Ka and her man Wouter together makes my heart sing! He completes her. I couldn’t be happier to see them moving in together in their new house.

We got together for our annual shoot and decided we would theme it around the move.

Here’s to a new chapter for Ka and Wouter and the happily ever after – with the ever faithful golden retriever Bailey :-)

Love and kisses Deze sessie was zo leuk! Mijn vriendin Kristina en haar vriend Wouter Goossen hebben samen een huis gekocht. De nakende verhuizing werd meteen het thema voor hun kerstshoot. Wat hebben we gelachen en genoten! Ook hun trouwe golden retriever Bailey was erbij!

Merry Christmas

It’s cliché to say that time flies but it’s true. Time seems to move faster as we grow up into adulthood. A week feels like an eternity for our children as they count down till Christmas.  Seems like it was yesterday that I sat down to write my last Christmas post.

This past year has been wonderful. Everything is easier somehow. Hard to put my finger on it. We’re getting things done both privately and professionally.  Pieces of our lives are slowly falling into place and it feels good.

We’re slowing down and taking time to enjoy.

Take a step back and apprecitate what you have.

Have a wonderful Christmas. Hug your loved ones.

Love,

T

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
