Ingeborg van Bruggen is a family photographer based in Zuid Holland of Netherlands.

I must have been about 5 years old when I walked through the zoo with my mother. Looking fascinated. Not to the monkey behind glass, who stared at me curiously, but at the man next to me, who was photographing the animal with a gigantic camera. I knew immediately: "I want that too!" From the moment in the zoo that passion for photography has only become stronger. And where many doubt about what training suits them, that doubt has not been there for me. I followed a graphic education and specialized in photography. Some people called me stubborn when I started my company in 2010 immediately after my training. I did it, of course not without a struggle, but now there is a healthy company and every day I can express my passion and creativity in my work. I love people and their stories. And I love to give back their story in pictures. The fantastic feature of photos is that they always last while time ticks. I photograph moments that are important to people. A wedding, a pregnancy, the first few weeks of a baby and his parents, or 'just' (family) love. People often find the photos that I take already very valuable. While they can become many times more important with time. For example, if someone in the pictures dies, or if children leave the house. Photos bring you back to the moment that they were made. I feel privileged to be able to do that for people.

Making memories for families is my passion. My goal is to make ordinary life looks extraordinary on the photos. I see beauty in everything and catch little details. I photograph true life always with a sense of humor. As mother of five children I know as no other how life is with children.

Noord Brabant and Eindhoven family photographer Joosje Janssen of Netherlands

HI! My name is Joosje Janssen and I'm a documentary family photographer from the Netherlands. JNSSN Photography stands for spontaneity and authenticity. As far as I am concerned, photos are best when they tell a story and when they show life as it really is; unpolished, realistic and above all not posed! Every family and every person has their own habits, their own rituals and that makes every family and every person unique. That is why documentary family photography stole my heart. Because by photographing life as it is, you show who you really are. And there is nothing more special than that! Photos are precious and tangible memories that can last a lifetime. If you ask me, ordinary life is more than worth remembering forever.

Noord Brabant family photography by Gaby Ermstrang of Netherlands

Hi, my name is Gaby and I live with my family, consisting of my husband Rick and daughter Dani in Woudrichem. I have been in the fortunate position to turn my hobby into my profession. Although I own not one but two of my own studios and sometimes divert to other disciplines within photography. I love to photograph my dear customers beautiful, pure, and creative. I am affiliated with various international wedding photography networks. And I can now call myself the winner of various international photo awards at international photo competitions. What makes me even more motivated to capture you beautifully on film. Female teacher? Besides my wedding reports and other photography work I also teach. I give workshops (bridal workshops, studio workshops) and courses (basic course and follow-up courses). I think teaching is one of the most wonderful things to do. Going through their creative and technical process together with people. Because don't forget, photography is 50% technique & 50% creativity. And the latter comes from within. I also enter the mentoring process with fellow photographers. Instead of training, I give them lessons in which the techniques, equipment, and creativity are high. Photo criticisms are therefore not lacking in these creative processes. I will tell you what is or is not technically possible and which lenses you may need for which form of photography. Workshops are available in groups and you can certainly book privately.

Noord Holland family photography by Sandra van der Meulen of Netherlands

During a photo report, everything revolves around you or you. Who I am is not important; I am present but also not. I put you at ease and listen to your wishes. As soon as I put down my camera I am Sandra, born in 1973 and a photographer. Crazy about traveling, sports, music, reading and going out. A real summer and evening person who enjoys life. But I prefer to have my camera, a Canon, around my neck to do what I love the most: photography. After the basic training at the Fotovakschool in Amsterdam, I continued with the training to become a professional photographer. A very nice education that I enjoyed and completed alongside my full-time job. After that, I followed various training courses, when I felt more and more which way I wanted to go with my photography.

's-Hertogenbosch family photography by Sjors van Gils of Noord Brabant Netherlands

Friends tell me I am a man with many hobbies. "You do everything, don't you?" Well, I can't deny that. I have a curious mind and I try a lot of different things and some things stick with me. That's how I started skateboarding, (wind)surfing, riding a motorcycle, learned to fix this motorcycle, and rebuild an old moped. Broadening my mind and learning different skills is what gives me energy. However varied these hobbies might seem, what I experience by mastering new skills is the rough, pure, and real sense of life. Jumping off a curb with your skateboard has something pure. No focus and you will fall, too tense and you will fall, a foggy head, and you will fall. This means there has to be some kind of balance between focus and relaxation. Unimportant elements of the day will disappear into the background and you only live this very moment, and that is 'real'. With my photography, I am looking for these pure and real moments. When I take pictures, I capture life how it is and goes. This means that in a family shoot everyone is allowed to decide for themselves what they wear that day, or how tidy the house is. Life consists of so many things that have to be done, that are supposed to be or that are not allowed. Leave it! Let it flow, it doesn't matter, beautiful moments arise everywhere, I'll capture them.
