It’s about tangible memories
And that is exactly why my approach may be a bit different from ‘what everyone else is doing’.
I don’t want to be the photographer who provides you with 200 digital images just for social media’s short-lived hype. My images get printed, on clean paper, and get a place in your life. Forever.
I don’t want my images to be ephemeral.
Because I put a lot of time into it. It is an investment, also in time, both for me and for you. I want to portray you as you really are, including your imperfections.
I go for pure, sincere, authentic, fun, quiet but at the same time enthusiastic, and reserve more than enough time in my calendar so we never have to rush.
Your toddler suddenly having a tantrum? No problem. Your baby who suddenly has cramps and is only happy if you rock him gently up and down all the time? I just stay, and make sure to capture those moments of ‘no, no photos when he’s crying’ too. You, who might take half an hour to just find inner peace in the presence of a photographer? Fine, I am a good listener and curious by nature!
I want what we do to be memorable. I won’t go for the quick click-click-click, because you can’t direct our little kids. You don’t have to, because I am convinced that the photos are so much more beautiful when the little ones are comfortable. That they don’t have to be bribed at every turn with “you’ll get a candy if you smile once at that lady”. I am just Leentje, and dare I say that those little ones often like me, with my crazy faces and tickling talents. I’m not going to ask them to pull out their prettiest baby teeth toothpaste smile, because those spontaneous in between moments, are secretly the cutest!
So, no stress. If you make sure to have a coffee (preferably with steamed milk if possible) ready, everything will be fine! (For outdoor sessions, I bring my own thermos, no worries!)
“They grow up so fast, ma’am!”
How it works
I myself have 5 albums from my childhood. I am eternally grateful to my mom for that. The digital world we live in so quickly doesn’t go for “quality” and “tangible” anymore. But watch me, I’m going back to where it all started.
With every reportage you first pay a shoot fee of €290, which covers my time and all professional preparations. Your questions will be answered with the utmost care.
Afterwards, I get to work, make a selection of the most beautiful images (often more than 100) and provide you with an online gallery. The first thing you will see is a photo slideshow with a best of of the wide variety of images.
That’s when you will be able to choose from 3 different collections. Each collection includes a number of high-resolution downloads as well as a print credit for in my online photo store.
Only the best products on the most beautiful papers were selected for you. The collections start at €590.
Photos are so much more valuable when you actually have them in your hands.
