After a successful career in the fast-moving consumer goods industry I decided to broaden my horizon and started studying at the Photo Academy in Amsterdam. For me photography is about capturing the right moment and telling a true story. I am big fan of the photojournalistic approach so I don’t interfere and keep an eye out for genuine moments happening in front of my lens. I get excited each and every time I grab my camera. In my work I focus on milestones such as reunifications, births and weddings. It is an honor to be invited into people’s lives to capture authentic and important events. I am a proud member of DuPho, Dutch Photographers, association of professional photographers.


Driven by a focus on creativity, collaboration and expertise I assisted Phtgrphr Jacqueline Dersjant – a fun, talented, international award winning photojournalist – organizing the Fearless Conference in Amsterdam with the world’s top wedding photographers. During my study I also assisted Jacqueline with marketing activities and as a second shooter. I live in Naarden with my husband Matthijs and our son Tibbe. I still cherish the photographs taken on our wedding day by Hans van der Mast in 2007 and fell in love with photography ever since. Hopefully you enjoy looking trough my website and seeing some of the photography I’ve made recently. If you would like to get in touch with me to find out more about what I offer please feel free to send me a message via my contact page. You can also find me on LinkedIn, feel free to add me to your network. Have a great day or evening!
