Noord Holland family photography in Amsterdam by Charlene van der Gracht

How lucky am I to capture precious moments in a family’s day to day life. I am a real family photographer with a love for sincere emotion. I make a family document that shows how much love you spread. But more important, I'll make you realize that you also receive a lot in return from your loved ones. It is a lot of fun for me to be able to show you and your family the whole story of your day from a different perspective. That includes of course the laughter, the teasing, the giggles and the tears. I see it and I capture it.

Antwerp family and wedding photographer Joshua Dhondt - FPJA of Belgium and Flanders

Photography and people are Joshua’s two greatest passions. Utterly curious – a nice legacy she got from her grandmother – she loves to meet new people, observe them and capture what they are all about. She is both outgoing and calm so to make everyone feel at ease. Very patient, she has a special radar for shenanigans. Her goal is to document small but great moments that might otherwise go unnoticed, to capture the moment just as it felt that day. She is a visual storyteller. Mostly self-taught, she has been a professional photographer for the last 11 years, full time since 2013. She is based in Antwerp, Belgium, and travels in (and sometimes out) Europe for Family, Day in the Life sessions and Weddings. She is at her best when shooting true, unstaged and profound moments and events – in a relaxed atmosphere.

Noord Brabant and Eindhoven family photographer Joosje Janssen of Netherlands

I cannot say exactly where my passion for photography originated. For me, photos are valuable because of the memories they carry and the stories they can tell. My father used to have a darkroom in the attic, a mysterious place where my sister and I were not allowed to just come. But because of this darkroom and my father's hobby, I am lucky that there are entire albums full of photos with stories from my childhood. Besides the memories, I also have photos that belong to these memories. A precious possession, if you ask me. In the spring of 2019, I decided to change course. I felt I was just working and when I came home in the evening I had little energy left for other things. More balance was needed. In addition, I wanted to do more with my passion, photography. In recent years I have followed various photography courses and workshops. Also, I followed a part-time course in Photo Art at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp for 3 years. But now it was time to move on. I started to work less and to focus more on photography. That gives me energy, I can use my creativity and I can touch people in a positive way with that!
