MEET YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER, NATALIE CARSTENS

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. I can’t wait to meet you and get started!

Originally from Bolton in the UK, my career in cybersecurity brought me to the Netherlands and Scheveningen quickly felt like home.

Now happily married to my German husband, we have two young daughters who are growing up Dutch.

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 honoured to be the one to document your stories, and to be part of them.

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

I can’t wait to hear from you!

love Natalie xx
