Lifestyle Family Shoot, 22 April 2018, Rotterdam
I was thrilled when I received a mail from Australia last summer from Vania, who wished to give a photoshoot voucher as a gift to her friends Romy and Jordi in the Netherlands who were expecting their first child in October 2017. We met at the station after she arrived in Rotterdam, and the couple would contact me when they were ready to have their shoot - They were free to go for a pregnancy, newborn, or family shoot. As I was pregnant myself, I connected with the couple in December to check if they would like to have a winter shoot indoors before I gave birth or a spring shoot outdoors when I would go back to work. After giving it some consideration, we chose to wait for the spring when their son Seb would be around 6 months.
Thankfully the weather fairy was kind to us when we finally picked up a date in April 2018, when the trees were blossomming fully at Arboretum Trompenburg. It was actually so warm the day of the shoot that little Seb could take off his shoes for some lovely baby feet closeups. Perfect time and place for shooting this young family - fresh and joyful as spring.
