Your story waiting to be told
Why is your everyday family life interesting enough to be photographed? Because your real life is the most important thing you have. And your family is your biggest treasure. They are the reason you get out of bed, go to work and make sure you keep on pushing yourself to make life better every single day. So let's honor that part of your life by photographing it in a beautiful, genuine and artful way!
Why does it matter?
Kids love to see themselves in photos. It makes them feel seen and appreciated. So it’s great to photograph them on special moments like birthdays or at activities, but I promise you that when they're older they’ll treasure photos of their daily life so much more. Photos in which they can see dad chasing them around the house or mom steeling a kiss from them while she’s busy breastfeeding the baby. Not to mention photos of that wild game they play in the garden.
I want you to think about yourself. When was the last time you were on a photo laughing and relaxing with your partner? When was the last time your whole family was in the frame without dad or mom missing because they were taking the picture? Most importantly, do you have any evidence of how hard you are parenting every single day? Probably not. So let me help you with that, in the most joyful way possible
As long as I remember I wanted an unposed family photo session since my son Rojus was born. But back then documentary family photography didn't exist. So years later Nienke made my dream come true. She is so kind and friendly and the kids were in love with her. We felt at ease having her around us all day long. And we love the photos even more than expected! She showed us our true selves and captured important family moments during our daily routines that we ourselves didn't notice anymore. Thank you, Nienke!
Nienke works very professional and blended in with our family so well that after a while we didn’t even notice that she was photographing anymore. Which has produced the most beautiful unposed photos of who we really are as a family. Nienke’s photography style is unique. She has such a good eye for detail that some photos really moved us. This session was a beautiful gift to ourselves about ourselves. Thanks to Nienke.
As a documentary family photographer I capture the essence of your family. You don’t have to pose, the only thing you have to do is let me into your life for a moment and be yourself. I’ll take care of the rest.
As a documentary photographer I'm in love with photographing people in an authentic way. I can take your portrait the same way. Even though you have to pose for a moment, I assure you can still be yourself. This way the portraits taken during our session together will have an authentic feel to them and show who you really are. If you want your (family's) portrait taken during our session: let me know!
