As a photographer, I am not looking for the perfect Instagram picture, but for YOUR picture. What do you want? Not a stiff photo or some photo in which you don’t recognize yourself. That’s why we go to your favorite place. In your favorite outfit, where the wind blows through your hair and you can no longer stand up straight from laughing so loudly. A picture of which your friends will say “ha, that’s so you!”
How can we make the photo really “you”? By making every choice by you. Location, clothing, your attitude, we choose what makes you feel comfortable. You don’t like to sit still? Then we don’t put you in the picture sitting down, but dancing or skipping, whatever suits you.
Do you get a bit nervous about having your picture taken? I make the photo shoot fun and relaxed. I am a photographer who keeps talking to you. I continuously distract you with questions and good conversation. Everything to get you loose, forget the camera and provoke real laughter. This way you are really yourself on the photo, unposed and spontaneous.
Are you coming with your family? Then I make sure that the photo shoot is a fun outing. For younger children I have games and with teenagers and adults enough questions so that you can have fun together for an hour and also get to know each other better.
By showing more of yourself, you make photos with real value. For family photos, the photo takes on much more meaning in your favorite forest, at the tree your kids always need to swing at, with the stuffed animal they drag everywhere in their arm. Beautiful memories!
And for entrepreneurs and portraits: by really showing yourself, you attract people who really like you and want to choose you.
Do you see the difference between a forced and a real smile? I do. It is always my goal to show the real smile, the real emotions and nothing “just because you have to”. You can also see this reflected in the selection I make. However, I think it is most important that you are happy with your photos. That is why you choose yourself which photos you will actually use. You see yourself differently than I see you.
Making you feel comfortable and make you laugh is my biggest challenge. But also one of my most favourite things to do!
The B of course is me: Bonny. Moments: small moments, big memories. Life is not about the big days, but about our daily life, the little things. That is why I am always looking for the little moments during our session: that secret kiss on your partner’s head or your child taking your hand for a moment. Or with a portrait session: the moment you relax, close your eyes or that sparkle in your eye that comes while talking about your company.
Want to know more about who I am, I would like to tell you more on the page ‘About Bonny‘.
