I am quite excited to say I have started a new photography series where I visit cafes around New Zealand and aim to capture their vibes through my images. I have always loved visiting cafes, especially since I worked in them for 3+ years! I love seeing the different interior designs, the food opt

Oh how I love autumn and the holidays! I took my sister, niece and nephew out to the beach for an afternoon a few weeks ago to have a play, and of course have some ice cream at the end. It was a beautiful afternoon filled with sun, swimming, laughing and playing.

I have the privilege this year of living right next to these two beautiful sisters, and a few weeks ago we decided to take a little trip and take some photos in the gloriously sunny weather. Oh was it worth it!! Enjoy x
On December 30th 2016 Amy + Matt got married at the stunning Huka Falls Resort in Taupo. It was my last wedding before I head to the Hawke's Bay to embark on a teaching career, and it was the best one I could have asked for. Amy and Matt are two
Amy + Matt got married yesterday and flip it was a beautiful day! These two are such kind and lovely people, and their love for each other was just radiating all day. The Huka Falls resort is a stunning venue and the surrounding Taupo forests and sunsets just made taking photographs that much mor

My beautiful little sister got married on Saturday and man did she look amazing. Words cannot describe the feeling you get as an older sister when you see her so happy with the best guy for her by her side. It was such a special day.
Ofcourse I had to take a snap before we headed to th
I spent a glorious weekend away by myself in one of my favourite places in New Zealand. I always want to take my camera along so here are some of the beautiful sights I beheld x
I had the most relaxing time away last weekend in Raglan. I stayed in a cosy and warm caravan and just marvelled at the landscape, sunsets, and beautiful people. It is so good to go somewhere and just...be. To stop and think man, I love my life. To forget about all the things you need to do
This is Maurizio and he is from Italy. I photographed him and 15 other people who I'd never met for a portrait series I wanted to do while in Raglan. I asked all of them a series of questions, and their faces and stories will be featured on my blog soon.
I'm very late with posting these, and I can say nothing except for it having been a crazy year! These were taken this past summer when I was second shooting for the amazing Maree Wilkinson Photography x
It doesn't get much cuter than this! x

A blissful time away before the hectic year of 2016 begins! x
I absolutely adore these two! I have known Katrina since my first year of university study back in 2009, so when she told me she wanted me to photograph her wedding I was beyond excited! She's full of life and kindness, and when I met her lovely Hughwyn I knew they were so right for each ot
Thank you so so much x
Wow, what an incredible year I've had. Not just photographically and artistically, but wow have I grown and delighted in all the little and exciting adventures that came my way. I am so lost for words with gratitude and emotional at the thought of all the people I've been blessed to call my
Wow, what a beautiful day this was. I was actually quite emotional a few times during the day, especially when I call these two beautiful people my friends. Seeing two cultures come together as one was very special to see, and when they kept honouring God for the blessings in their relation
Can't wait to show you more of this awesome day soon x
This was the first time I have played around with sparklers and I'm pretty stoked with the results! My sister and her fiance bought some sparklers and we thought we'd experiment with them, cellphones and ofcourse, my camera.Who doesn't love sparkler or night photos right! Merry early
On Saturday Michelle invited many friends + family to celebrate having her first child. We are all so excited for her, and can't wait to see her grow and flourish as a new mama. Congratulations Michelle, you're amazing! x
This past weekend my family and I headed off to a friend's bach and stayed the weekend at Waihi beach. Our little house was only a minute walk from the beach, and as soon as I stepped inside, my photographic eyes went a little bit crazy. The walls were decorated with beach themed frames, sh
One beautiful and windy Sunday afternoon, awesome friends got together and spent some quality time on the beach. Ofcourse I marvelled at the details and I took my camera along. So blessed by all of these faithful, hilarious and kind people x

How wonderful is it to collaborate with not just the beautiful and incredible creatives of Mosaic, but the most amazing, creative, innovative and indescribable God in the universe? Last night the creative team organised the first creative team night and man how great it was! Simon Hayward l
These two are very special to me for one very obvious reason; Marieke is my little sister. After four years together Daniel proposed on the beach and now they are ecstatic to spend the rest of their lives being with eachother. They are both studying nursing and have to wait until su

These two are such an inspiration to be around. They are generous, kind hearted, in love with Jesus (and each other ofcourse), and just generally all-round lovely people. The sun shone beautifully on a Sunday afternoon and we took a little drive just outside of Tauranga to make use of some
Watching the sunset is my most favourite thing to do in the world (besides star gazing). I love when the light becomes soft, the beach less crowded, and the colours of the dunes, trees and all the pretty little creations become warmer and warmer. Sometimes when my thoughts go a little crazy
I love these two. They are both hilarious, so kind hearted and generous. Can't wait to show you more soon x
Oh South Island, how I love you! My mini holiday with mama was filled with lots of cold but beautiful winter wonder, snowy mountains, road trips to the middle of nowhere, hot tea and taking in the magnificence of it all. Next time I'm going deep into the mountain ranges beyond Glenorchy x
When I was in Queenstown we drove past Glenorchy into some insanely LOTR lookalike mountain ranges (I may or may not have sung some of the soundtrack out loud) and we came across these mystical set of trees, completely barren but awesome looking. I wish I could have camped out there
These two are such beautiful people! Everything about their day was so relaxed and filled with love, I was stoked to be a part of it. Thank you Courtney Horwood Photography for having me along to second shoot! x
It was so so beautiful! Can't wait to show you more soon x

Today was a very special day for me. Not only did I get to work with an incredible team to make this shoot happen, but I also got to commemorate the Dutch Liberation Day (bevrijdingsdag) in WWII exactly 70 years ago (1945) and honour the sacrifices my grandfather and great grandfather made
These two are dear friends of mine and beautiful individuals, so I was honoured to capture their day. It generally poured down all day except for when the ceremony began and during photo time, praise the Lord! Here are some of my favourites x

Just before this lovely little human turned five, we spent a few hours together (with mum watching behind the scenes) in a secluded little forest that once was a paintball field. The first time I saw this place, I knew I wouldn't be back just once. I love it!

This family was beyond lovely, and I felt so at ease and welcome amongst them. We had lots of laughs and lots of attempts to try and sit four kids together, or sit one of them on their own! It was a beautiful, hot, and bright day, and the sunshine and beach front created a very relaxed and
Oh, what a beautiful and glorious morning it was! Amy was so dedicated and awoke at 4AM to get herself ready, and I jumped with joy when I saw there were no clouds in the sky.

I think I have found one of my favourite places in Europe so far. We drove about 20 minutes up windy hills, on a road accompanied by farms, cows, lonely rocks, blooming trees and grey clouds which neared as we drove further up to the beautiful little village. I am in love!
What does one, or shall I say what do I do, when babysitting this little beauty? Well, dress her up and capture her cuteness! x
One week ago Beth and James got married on a cloudy and rainy, but beautiful and happy day.
I met B & J separately whilst studying at university, and it was so easy to get along with these cheerful, compassionate and loving two, despite them not knowing each other at the time. As
On my day off this week I cycled to Dordrecht and visited the breathtaking big church by the water in the city. Surrounded by boats, trees, little cafes, shops and houses, this church stands out and has a majestic presence in the old part of town.

This Monday I spent a beautifully sunny and momentarily rainy day in Putten, The Netherlands. My uncle and his family are spending their holiday there and so my oma and I went over and spent some quality time with him, his wife and three kids. I have to mention that I haven’t
I love the countryside, and I love everything to do with farms. The smell of cows, hay bales, freshly mowed grass, chicken food, and rusty tractors makes you feel like you’ve just entered a completely different part of Holland.
Ottoland is completely stunning. Farmland and old
I have known Amber pretty much all my life, but I hadn’t seen her for nearly ten years since emigrating to New Zealand in 2004. It was so nice to see her again and continue doing life with her. She’s completely hilarious and beautifully confident, and I loved photographing her o
Right by the famous Nemo building, the Amsterdam Conservatorium, and Public Library, I photographed Kristina and Wim on a cloudy Sunday afternoon. We had never met before, but we warmed up to each other very easily and started having fun straight away! I had so much fun spending time with these t
I arrived in The Netherlands at 6.10AM on the 7th of March and stumbled out of the airport completely exhausted and jet lagged. My long legs and bad back did not help lack of comfort during the 13 1/2 hour flight. But luckily I sat next to a lovely Columbian born gentleman who I talked wi
