I adore horses more than anything in this world. My dog is one of my best friends. I've fallen in love with Arizona, my favorite place in the whole world. I'm Dutch and relocated to Tucson, Arizona in 2018 thanks to being granted the "Artist Visa" based on my photography skills, where I'm now getting settled with my American better half and our 4 legged kiddos. I love traveling and learning more about other cultures. I believe in heritage, in creating timeless and love-filled heirlooms, in quality over quantity, in tangible prints & handmade albums and in creating beautiful legacies. Light and nature inspire me greatly.
Being around horses and riding is my favorite thing in the world. I'm a horse girl through and through. They are so incredibly special to me and capturing the love between a horse and their human, is so precious to me. The bond you have with your horse, is unlike anything else and I understand how valuable and precious these images are.
I've been a professional photographer since 2006, having photographed 250+ weddings in gorgeous locations all around the world and having my wedding & editorial work published in magazines and on leading wedding blogs around the world. I've won multiple awards with my wedding images, equine portraits and travel images and taught wedding photography workshops to fellow wedding photographers.
I'm extremely passionate about wild Mustangs. Always have been. I've seen them in the wild in Arizona and have had the privilege to ride multiple Mustangs in the past years. My favorite horse in the world is Ocho, a BLM Mustang and my goal is to one day adopt a Mustang myself. It might not change the world, but it will change the world for that Mustang.
I live in jeans and cowboy boots. I love watching movies and tv shows. I still cry every single time I watch The Age of Adaline, P.S. I Love You or The Notebook. I've seen every episode of the Gilmore Girls. Multiple times actually :-)
I use way too many :-) and ! in emails, so be warned ;-) Beautiful golden soft light during photo shoots makes my heart sing and it might make me squeal during the shoot, just so you know ;)
I'd be incredibly honoured to work with you on creating timeless heirlooms of you and your best friend!
