What people say
In our society you are being criticized for your looks, your weight, for what you eat or don’t eat, for what you wear or don’t wear… You get compelled to live up to unrealistic beauty standards thrown at you everywhere you look. I’ve met very few women who felt completely comfortable in their own skin. Every time it shocks me when a woman tells me about her insecurities. Insecurities she shouldn’t have.
My wish is to show you that those insecurities have no right to exist. My wish is to show you that you are beautiful, that you are enough and that you should be proud of who you are. Because a woman should never feel like she’s not good enough the way she is. Regardless of looks, age, weight or what you like to wear. Every woman is beautiful, including YOU! And you should FEEL like that!
An intimate portrait session is something you might want to do because of a special occasion, a marriage, a birthday, a milestone in your life, or… just for YOU. An intimate portrait session is about intimacy, vulnerability, sensuality, but even more about femininity, about acceptance, confidence and embracing the beautiful person that you are. Although an intimate portrait session can be scary it also has the power to change how you see yourself. I want you to look at your photographs years from now and remember that time you did something scary, something out of your comfort zone, and that it was worth it. Because YOU are worth it. I want you to be proud of your photographs, and most of all I want you to be proud of who you are.
I’m a curious and creative guy, always busy trying to make the most of my time while I wander this planet. I like to travel to see places that breathe history, enjoy beautiful sceneries like forests, wide open spaces or completely rewind by the quietness you can only find in remote areas. My creative side I express through crafting. I spent some years doing woodwork and recently, I fell in love with pottery. Currently, I’m in the process of collecting a whole set of my own handmade tea cups to enjoy my coffee (they don’t mind, I promise). Besides a good coffee, I’m always in for a proper Belgian beer with friends or family (the beer thing is kinda mandatory being a Belgian guy).
In my professional life, I strive to help people become their best selves. As a part time healthcare professional I help people to achieve their best possible state of physical well being. While as a part time photographer I try to make people fall in love with who they are. I found that people don’t always understand my own life choices and along the way I learned that that’s alright. I learned that it is ok to be who I am and to live a life that keeps that spark in me alive.
Your life is your own. That’s the message I like to spread. This is your life, do what you love and don’t let anyone tell you who you should be. You should be YOU. I’ve witnessed from up-close how a photograph can have an effect on someone’s confidence. My wish is to witness that many times more. I hope to see people look at themselves with pride, walk out with more confidence than they came in with, and love themselves just a little bit more.
Information and Pricing
I like to get to know you before the session in order to get a good idea about your expectations, the style that you like and your comfort level. And of course to answer all the questions you might have. Apart from that you will feel a lot more comfortable during your session when I’m not a complete stranger anymore. A first contact can be in person or via videocall.
When you decide that this is the experience you are waiting for we will start planning your session.
The day of your session is all about you! You can relax with a drink while a professional hair and make-up artist does what she does best and as soon as you're ready I will guide you through the entire session and poses. You don’t have to worry if you have no idea how to pose, that’s what I’m there for. You only have to show up and enjoy the experience!
After your session I will prepare a selection of your best photographs and during an in person viewing session you’ll have the opportunity to select the photographs you really love. I will fully edit the photographs that you selected before they will be professionally printed. All that's left for you to do is wait until your photographs are ready for pick-up or delivery and enjoy the amazing feelings you will get every time you look at them!
