Transportation

One of the things I love most, while traveling with public transportation, is empty stations when nighttime is rushing in. That perfect time, right after busy hours, when people are where they need to be. It’s just you, great music and all the time in the world. This week, I went to a sushi restaurant with one of my oldest friends. After a great meal, with great company, I found myself at an empty bus … Continue readingTransportation

Black and White

This is Poekie the Panda. A couple of years ago I got Poekie from my boyfriend. In that time I was suffering from heavy night terrors and because we didn’t live together yet, Poekie was a gift to help me get through the night. One of the nightmares, a recurring one I had for years and years, was about a stairway in my childhood home. It was a dream about something that happened to me … Continue readingBlack and White

Just Breathe..

Just Breathe… It’s a mantra I use quite often.When things go too fast around me, when I’m feeling that panic coming up and taking over and when I do something new that scares me. It’s the line I use to calm myself when ever I need it. I wanted to show how that moment feels, the moment just before I allow myself to “Just Breathe”.The moment you feel like you’re from outside looking in, while … Continue readingJust Breathe..

(Not so) Macro

So this week I was super busy with a new job and saying goodbye to my old life.I closed the eventful week with my birthday on sunday and celebrated it at the beach with my boyfriend. I was looking for a great subject for this week’s theme, Macro, and decided to get up close and personal with this little jellyfish, I named it “Fristi”, that was sunbathing near the sea. I didn’t have a macro … Continue reading(Not so) Macro

Door

Opening new doors to new beginnings… Recently, I got big news on new opportunities and I feel like a heavy weight came of my shoulders, which I was carrying for many years. I wanted to incorporate it into this week’s theme, “Door”, as I feel like many doors are opening for me right now. It symbolizes coming from a dark place and, if you’re willing to work hard enough for it, a chance to open … Continue readingDoor

Music

When I think about “Music” and how important that is in my life, I also think of my brother-in-law, Tom, who is a brilliant musician, amazing person and an awesome dad and partner. Tom made all the important events with my family so special: He turned a whole restaurant into a concert during Christmas dinner and parties into improv jamming. He played at family weddings, birthdays, live with his bands and he made the difficult … Continue readingMusic

Wide Angle

This week I went to Rotterdam, a city in The Netherlands, with my dear aunt Marianne.Every once in a while, we go for a photowalk or make a trip together, since we both love photography and travelling. We always have a great time and I really enjoy those days a lot! Rotterdam is such a lovely, photogenic city and I ended up with lots of great pictures, which resulted in having a hard time choosing … Continue readingWide Angle

Curious

“Children are not only innocent and curious but also optimistic and joyful and essentially happy. They are, in short, everything adults wish they could be.” This week I was lucky to get a visit from this beautiful little girl, Marwa-May. At almost 4 weeks old, I was super impressed to see how calm she was. Those big eyes, so innocent and observing, were following me the whole time we were shooting. It made me think … Continue readingCurious

Red

There is a shade of red for every woman.” For this shoot, I immediately thought of my gorgeous friend Eunise, a feisty, charming woman, to be my model for the color Red. There was no doubt in my mind that she could pull off representing my meaning of “Red” and she surely delivered! There is strength in “Red”, a popping color that can embody all kinds of strong feelings like power, passion, love, sexuality, danger, … Continue readingRed

A Perfect, Little Moment

For me, this week flew by in a blink of an eye. I’ve had lots of appointments, new opportunities and even accomplished some big (life) goals! In all the chaos, I’ve only had a few peaceful moments where I could just sit down and enjoy the stillness around me. This was one of those moments. A moment where the platform at the train station was completely abandoned, empty and silent, just before some new trains … Continue readingA Perfect, Little Moment
