Sometimes it seems the kids will never grow up and then you wake up one day and they are leaving home. Wouldn't it be wonderful then to go back in time and cherish those beautiful moments you all had together?! You might not think your everyday life very special, but, believe me, it is. This is what defines your family and I will come to your home to document all the fun and laughter, the little fights and tears. The best thing is: Your whole family will be in the pictures - even you who usually is the person behind the camera or phone. Why do I like family photography so much? I started out as a documentary wedding photographer and though I still love shooting beautiful couples and crazy parties on the dancefloor, I soon figured that all those kids getting wild on that day interested me even more. So I took my experience and steely nerves to that new genre of family photography, and found that it is not much different. With both, moment is key. The moments I collect over the day will make the families own story. Working at their home I try to find a lot of different perspectives and moments. I want to document the family with beautiful and surprising images that will make them see themselves anew I have been working as a documentary wedding and family photographer for seven years now. As a photographer, it is very important to keep pushing yourself. I don't want to become someone who settles in a routine, proclaiming "I found my style and not going to change anything!". This is called lazyness. There are so many great photographers out there and you can still learn a lot from them. That is why I try to attend a workshop once a year, either to learn more about technical skills like using flashes in a creative way or editing my pictures to the best or just getting inspired by the way other photographers approach their work. This has helped me to find my own unique style and has won me lots of awards. I especially love to be a curator for award collections. This sharpens your eye and makes you think about what makes an image relevant and beautiful.
It's an honour to provide families with images that reflect how their life is now - images that can be enjoyed in this moment, and treasured in the future. I'm from New Zealand, and after years working in educational development, am now living in Berlin, learning German, and following my passion in photography. My personal beliefs are reflected in the photos I take; they have the power to record, express and honour moments, that can be cherished again as time goes by.
With my documentary family photography, I capture for you how life has felt with your children. Time flies by and often we are not aware of it in everyday life. Before we know it, our tiny newborn has become a curious explorer and schoolchild. Every time something new starts, it also means saying goodbye to something that works. As mean as it may sound, you are growing up fast, your children. The times when they sneak into your bed at night or cling to you with sticky ice paws on hot summer days and whisper in your ear how much they love you are only a brief moment in your life. In my pictures, you see in many years, as the head of your baby fits exactly in your hand, how the little fist has closed around your index finger and also what it was like with a hungry child on the arm to warm the vial and simultaneously to rummage for a fresh body. You can see the amazing Ceiling Castles and Legoberge your kindergartner produced in his room and feel what it was like to eat together. Happy ketchup-smeared mouths and crying broccoli protest included. It's the little things that make your time with your kids so special. And these little things are in constant change because little people want nothing more urgent than growing up very quickly. My photographs are a snapshot in this fast-paced roller coaster ride. They make possible what is really not possible: to stop time, to maintain a feeling and to experience happiness again and again.
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.
I’m a professional people photographer. I love authentic pictures showing true life and not a fake Instagram version of perfection. I’m specializing in natural newborn, baby, children and family photography. I love capturing your special occasions or simply an average but significant day. The pregnancy, the first days of your baby, his first steps or a day of the life of your family are all moments that I love to share with you, my clients. My commitment to you is to deliver you via my pictures special emotional and beautiful memories. I like simple, clean shots. I like to survey the detail. My commitment is always the same – the highest quality of the pictures and a professional attitude. I treasure making new acquaintances and learning new things. It would be a delight for me to get to know you. Based in Brussels, Belgium I travel as well abroad for my photography projects and commissions.
Capturing family life is one of my biggest passions. Maybe because I love to photograph real moments in life. Maybe because I love the connections and love between family members or maybe because it's such an honest and pure way of photographing life. The idea of me capturing future memories for a whole family makes me want to try extra hard to find the little details and special moments of a family and photograph them. Next to that I also try to capture the biggest chaos as a perfect whole.
I was born and raised in Antwerp, Belgium. At a young age, I received my first camera as a birthday gift. Immediately, I started making pictures of everything and everybody around me. And I never stopped :) Now, being a father of two, I truly see the power of family photography. Not the posed portraits, that don't have any emotion in them, but the real moments. Moments that are not always beautiful (strawberries on a white rug, tantrums in the bathtub,...) but that I want to remember when my kids will be all grown up. Moments that show how a family sticks together, loves and comforts each other. And that's exactly what I want to give my clients.

Willeke lives with her boyfriend Ralph and her two beloved energetic sons in Arnhem, the city she loves because of the green nature that surrounds it. She loves life; small things make her happy like a full moon, sunrays, a beautiful little bird in her garden, the smell of springtime, the smile of a stranger, kids conversations and kids fantasy plays. She looks forward meeting new people and discover new places. Also when this is outside the Netherlands, actually, she loves to!
Of course, I am a mother.. two young daughters that are up to no good most of the time.. and that creates wonderful, real and true moments! Funny or sweet, naughty or nice, it's all there! So, therefore, I absolutely love shooting families. But for me... it goes a bit further.. in this day and time we are all so busy, on our phones, on social media and working. Therefore I believe we need these Family moments. We need to go outside.. shut down our phones, and play. Just have fun... let kids be kids. and my heart melts when I'm there capturing those wonderful, precious moments. I've always had a thing with kids, I seem to attract them and relate to them. Is it because I'm really short and up to their level? Or because I never lost the kid in myself? Anyway.. it really helps and I can capture kids how they truly are! Those little unique characters.. always amazing when parents tell me I've captured their true spirit!
My style can be described as 'family photojournalism'. Think of it as a documentary that I make of your story. Whether it is a marriage, a certain day in your family life or your company story. I do not like situations that are put on stage. I photograph people as they are, pure and real. I do not work with models or people who are used to standing in front of the camera. And that is exactly what I see as a luxury. It is a challenge to repeatedly bring out the individuality and uniqueness of my couples, families, ... and show them in a beautiful report. A memento for decades, not only for themselves but especially for the people who are not even there yet.
Small and big stories; little visual tales, which, over the years, add up to each other's book of life. Created by a family photojournalist with a passion for the reportage-style, photography and film, the Tiny Tales project arise by vocation, with the ambition to capture the beautiful, the absurd, the caricato or the frowning. What your life you have to show us. Because all love stories - and often leave whole sections to tell.
I studied History back in my University time, but besides my major study, I joined a documentary filmmaking course taught by a local veteran producer. That was when I started to discover my interest in videography and photography. Once graduated in 2008, I saved most of my salary from my first job and bought my first ever camera. I became more addicted to photography, and especially family photojournalism, because it has the magic to freeze a moment and tell a great story. Thanks to another experienced teacher, I was able to learn from him more advanced photographic techniques and philosophy, and gradually I have engaged myself with wedding and family photography.
