  2. Share your story and ideas
  3. Complete the checkout

Is my preferred date available?
The calendar always shows actual availability. Meaning that if a date and timeslot are shown as available in the calendar, you can book your photoshoot for this specific date and time.

If your preferred date or timeslot doesn’t show up as available in the calendar, then it's already fully booked. Please, choose a different date or start time.

To book your photoshoot on your preferred date and time, you need to transfer a deposit of €50. You can transfer the deposit safely and seamlessly via the following payment methods:

  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • Apple Pay
  • Google Pay
  • PayPal
  • Ideal

You can pay the remaining amount after the photoshoot. This can be done through the payment methods mentioned above or in cash during your photoshoot.

Are travel costs charged?
No travel costs are charged for photoshoots in Amsterdam, including the city’s surrounding parks with blooming sakura trees.

For photoshoots held outside of Amsterdam, a fixed amount of €50 will be charged on top of the photoshoot price. You can specify your preferred photoshoot location during checkout.

Please, keep in mind that the flower fields are difficult to reach by public transport, a (rental) car is therefore required for photoshoots on blooming tulip fields.

Can I book an anonymous photoshoot?
The resulting photos can be displayed offline and online to attract clients, for example, on Instagram or in the blog on this website.

Don’t want your photos to be displayed? Check the option “Anonymous” during checkout. No photos will be posted on Instagram or displayed in the blog on this website. The anonymity costs are €50 on top of the photoshoot price.


What is your photography style?
I specialize in quality cinematic portraiture. Portraiture is the art of creating natural portraits that authentically convey one’s true essence and emotions. Cinematic is a photography style that involves creative compositing and artistic equipment to capture intimate moments atmospherically.

Offering you creative guidance through an at ease approach allows you to comfortably enjoy your photoshoot without worrying about posing in front of the camera.

Will I receive tips and guidance?
You can count on creative guidance and an at ease approach that will make your photoshoot feel natural and allow you to enjoy the moment without worrying about posing or the camera.

By making sure that you feel comfortable and enjoy your photoshoot, I can capture your true essence in authentic and natural photos.

Of course, I would also be happy to share tips and suggestions in preparation for your photoshoot, for example, by outlining a cinematic route or thinking along about your outfits.

Can I extend the duration of my photoshoot?
A comfortable photoshoot is characterized by time flying by. In most cases, it is indeed possible to extend the duration of your photoshoot due course by one or two hours.

However, as there are multiple photoshoots scheduled during the day, it is recommended to consider any duration extensions before your photoshoot.

Which equipment is used, and is it backed-up?
Only the best camera equipment is used during your photoshoot, for example, state-of-the-art Fujifilm GFX and X-series mirrorless cameras and multiple high-quality art series lenses.

Technical issues with professional camera equipment are exceptionally rare. However, when it comes to capturing your precious moments in candid photos, nothing is left to chance. All used equipment is thoroughly checked and covered with a back-up.

Who takes care of make-up, outfits, or accessories?
You are expected to arrange any desired preparations regarding make-up, outfits, or accessories by yourself. Of course, you can count on useful tips, creative suggestions, and professional guidance.
When do tulips bloom in the Netherlands?
The spring blooming season in the Netherlands lasts from mid-March to mid-May. During this period, it is possible to book a photoshoot on the gorgeous tulip, daffodil, and hyacinth fields as well as in parks with blooming Sakura trees and, of course, the famous Dutch tulip garden Keukenhof.

The summer also offers the chance for a blooming photoshoot. Lavender, peonies, dahlias, and many other flowers bloom in the Netherlands during the summer.
