Feel beautiful – portrait sessions

Beauty specialist Sylvia Bouwman and myself have a dream. We want to help women realize that how gorgeous they are. We want to give them beautiful professional portraits that they will want to use and share on their website, on their LinkedIn profile and on their social media.

It’s a given, that if you have a beautiful image of yourself, your self esteem will improve. Have you ever had or seen a nice picture of yourself? Never mind that it was 20 years ago – you know the feeling right? THAT feeling is the feeling Sylvia and I want to give YOU.

Why do you need a professional headshot?

  1. It improves your self esteem
  2. It’s an easy, but important investment in your future
  3. It’s a great first impression for most of your potential clients, partners or employers who will very often see your profile picture before they meet you in person
  4. In todays digital time and place, you should always have a good image at hand for different purposes like; Social Media, aricles or newspapers, marketing purposes, personal branding, CV, business cards, websites and more.
  5. A great portrait takes more than a simple click on a camera and a professional photographer will make sure everything come together in a way that works best for YOU. She or he will help you with good posture and angling, flattering lighting and editing, make-up and styling, style, setting and surroundings and so much more.

Here you can see some before & after samples of some gorgeous women from our last events. The main difference is how they FEEL when I take the pictures. After being made up by Sylvia, they feel pretty. My job is to make them feel event better by directing them and posing them and make them forget all about the camera and simply be themselves and have some fun:
