Unposed Family Photoshoot Capturing Real Life Moments

Unscripted & unposed family photography that captures the true essence of your family life.

Amsterdam Family Photographer capturing real life

Capturing an unposed visual diary of your family life is really important. I am a father of two small girls myself and I know how fast they grow up. Every single day it seems like something has changed and in the rush of daily life you can sometimes forget to cherish the small but intimate moments.

Let me capture an unposed day in your family life and make sure these treasures are saved forever. You don’t need to dress up or be something you’re not. Just be you and let the kids do whatever it is they normally do.

Let’s go out to the beach to run in some dunes, stay in the house and drink hot coco or do both. Play with them, joke around together, build castles in the forest or jump on the bed. Read them books, make a drawing or dress up like whatever.

It’s all worth capturing because that’s life and it’s all that matters.

When I first started out in 2011 I shot a lot more per year, but I feel the need to connect with my couples to create something amazing together.

I’m pretty good at getting people out of that awkward zone and capture those natural responses. It’s all about asking the right questions, enjoying the moment and not putting on too much pressure.

For the biggest part of the day I will shoot documentary style. Capturing real moments that happen in front of me and tell the story of your wedding day. You just have to make sure to enjoy everything and get in the moment, let me do the rest.

Relaxed, happy humans enjoying life to the fullest.

If you care more about candid, honest photos, than perfectly staged portraits with every hair in place, then I’d love to shoot you.

If you don’t want your wedding to feel like a big production, and just want a chill photographer who might be barefoot at your reception, then we’ll be great together.

If you trust me to do my thing, we’ll definitely be able to create some cool things together.
