Originally from The Netherlands, I moved to New York with my family in 1993. I fell in love with the art of creating images and started developing film and printing my photos in the darkroom in college. I've always been very drawn to the visual arts and creativity. I found my passion in portraiture inspired by people, fashion, beauty and music.

Portraits are not only about making a person look and feel their best. The most important thing to me is capturing the essence of a person and the different sides of their personality. It's about unraveling my subjects and making them feel comfortable throughout their experience in my studio. I love connecting with people and bringing out "who they are" and making the shoot relaxed, creative and fun!

My positive and friendly nature reflects my love of the colorful human spirit. I love culture and the message of one love and unity. I continue to find much joy and inspiration through working with a diverse mix of inspiring clients which I've had the pleasure of collaborating with.

I’ve gained a wide range of professional experience while working in the creative industry for 20+ years. It's given me a strong understanding of photography, photo production and studio management.

I would love to work with YOU! Please contact me today to schedule your complimentary consultation where we chat over coffee (or phone/skype) and discuss photoshoot concepts/ideas, styling, pricing and product options. I look forward to hearing from you!
