YOUR FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

mindful, gentle, sentimental

HI…

I’m Natalie, a photographer for families welcoming a new baby into their lives. I’m based in The Hague, The Netherlands.

I believe there is no bond stronger than mother and child.

After the sudden loss of my own mother when I was a teenager, photographs have been (and continue to be) a significant part of my healing process.

Photography is a beautiful gift. A gift of memories.

One day in the future, photographs of your everyday ordinary moments will be treasured beyond what you can imagine today. They become your family history; and your legacy.

I’ll help you preserve your memories, and together we’ll create a collection of prints and albums that will be enjoyed and loved for generations.

Originally from Bolton in the UK, my career in cyber security brought me to The Netherlands in 2003. I’ve lived here ever since.

Now happily married to my German husband, we have two daughters who are growing up Dutch. Two cats complete our family, although we are now down to one.

I photograph our everyday ordinary moments, not only for me, but for our daughters too. One day, 10, 20, 30 years from now, I believe they will be as nostalgic and curious about the years gone by as I am today. The photographs I make are my gift to them.

It brings me great joy to do the same for your family too.

I’ve been photographing families and babies for over a decade. I feel privileged to document your stories, and to be part of them.

See more information about my photography sessions here or get in touch to check my availability and book your session.

I can’t wait to hear from you!

“It was one of the best things that happened to us in 2013, that we have discovered your work. Thank you for sharing the special moment with us. It was inspiring to see how much genuine love you put into your work and all the babies you encounter. We feel honoured to be part of this.”
