One day, in late March, Yleana came to my studio in Utrecht. She arrived with a suitcase full of outfits, a steamer to steam the wrinkles out of her clothes, her favourite pair of shoes and a selection of jewellery — the goal of this morning: portraits for her new business.
In the next few hours, we created a series of portraits reflecting Yleana's fun and quirky spirit. And we accidentally stumbled upon a more vulnerable side of her when we ventured into a small boudoir session.
Every brand portrait session is unique. It has to be because your photos should reflect who you are and what your brand stands for. Yleana wanted confident portraits for her website. So we started with a red statement suit in her brand colour. For a little bit of contrast - and because I love working with flowers -, we added some white narcissus from my garden. After the suit, Yleana changed into a couple more outfits.
When you decide to invest in brand photos, I prefer you have a whole range of images to choose from: different outfits, different backgrounds, and if you want even different locations. That's one of the reasons I don't offer short photo sessions anymore. I want to give us time to create something that you and I are proud of. And to give us space to breathe and experiment, laugh and have great conversations. So we can create photos like Yleana and I did on this morning in late March.

If I had to describe my style of photography with one word, it would be 'documentary'. Why? Because my approach is very hands-off. Sure, I'll guide you through the process of creating those beautiful photos, but you are in charge. You decide what we're going to do and how, and I'll be there to document your big life events or the tiny stories in-between.
When is the right time to get in touch? Well, that depends. If you have a date and are determined to work with me, as soon as possible. Also, when there's travelling involved, the sooner the better. But if your plans are more flexible and close to where I live, we could arrange a photo session usually within two weeks. So it's up to you.
