Just a few more of my son to share today. He turned one on March 25th, when we’d already been in social isolation for a few weeks. It was a bit strange to not have his other loved ones there to celebrate the milestone, but they were with us in spirit, and Luuk is at an age where he doesn’t realize anything yet. We shower him (and our daughter) with extra love and affection in the meantime, to make up for lost hugs over the past few months. It’ll be an interesting story to tell them when they’re older. We don’t dwell on it too much anymore because everyone is going through. In a way because of that, I feel more connected to humanity than ever before. From a distance.

My house and heart are full. These photos, especially put next to each other, mean the world to me. When my daughter Rosalie was about 13 months old, I snapped some photos of her as it was snowing outside. I stood outside the window, capturing her in awe of the white world surrounding us that day. To this day it’s one of my most beloved, favorite photos ever taken. Cut to 2,5 years later, when her little brother Lucas was also around 13 months old (a few weeks ago). My husband Wil had taken him outside, and I from inside saw the beautiful golden glow of the setting sun falling on their blond hair. I quickly grabbed my camera (which still had a 100mm lens on it – but it was perfect), realizing that it wasn’t just the moment that was special but the timing too. Portraits of my boy…

So… here it is. My photo blog. I hadn’t really planned on doing this. I wanted to return to flickr, because I just wanted a place to collect what I’m working on right now and share it. I kinda miss the old days. But… I was greeted with dick pics straight off the bat. No thank U, NEXT. That ship has sailed & sunk to the bottom of the fucking ocean. Moving on. I plan to basically share, not necessarily new, but rather Previously Unseen or Unshared work (photography AND illustrations – because that’s something I do on the side, too). It can be new work, sure. But a lot of what I currently work on (as a stock photographer) is editing older work that I haven’t edited yet because life got in the way. And I have a LOT of that, mostly in the form of travel photography or…
