The Power of Expression

UR • Portrait Photography

What if you allowed your inner expression to shine in its entire beauty? Traditionally this could be called Portrait photography. Yet, it goes much further. It is about empowering yourself. It’s about showing up fully and letting yourself be seen. Come as you are – Whole, Perfect and Beautiful. 

Natural & Authentic

The most captivating expression becomes alive in spontaneity. Relax. Take a breath. Connect to your inner most being and simply be that. Allow your beautiful self to unfold into a playful and inspiring atmosphere, and I’ll be there to follow your flow.

Tailored to Your Needs

Whether you want your photo taken for your business or simply as a precious memory for yourself, I will put you in the best possible light. From years of experience, I can offer you the support and creative direction that help tailor the photoshoot to your unique needs.

Full of Expression

Physical appearance is a vessel which comes alive through expression. We will be playful and follow any notion offered in the present moment. There’s no need to pretend or want. You just allow the setting of the photoshoot to bring to life a diversity of unique expressions.

Bodies are different

Beauty is universal

Big, small, tall, short – Beauty comes in all shapes and forms. At this moment in time you are perfect they way you are. Let’s allow your unique beauty to shine.

A Celebration of You.

From years of experience and working with hundreds of women,  I understand the potenital challenge of being in front of a lense. Let’s set an intention together and make this experience personal, intimate and beautiful.

Got Questions?

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions for you.
In case you have more questions, you can find more answers on the FAQ page or you can contact me at anytime.

I want to book a photoshoot! How does it work?

Great! First, please get in touch HERE so we can set a time and date for our photoshoot. We can discuss details for the shoot either on the phone or face-to-face. Once we set a date, I will email you a written agreement. Please fill it out and return it to me.

Second, our photoshoot! To lock your booking in, I am asking you to pay a 50% deposit. This deposit is non refundable. The second part of the payment is due before the photoshoot starts. In case outer circumstances like the weather prevent us to stick to our plan, we will of course reschedule.

Third, time to select your favourite photos! Usually within one week after our shooting  I will send you a link to an online gallery with your photos. At this stage the photos are called ‘proofs’ because they are only mildly retouched, with the sole purpose for you to select what you like best. Depending on your package, you can expect between 50 and 150 proofs to choose from.

Fourth, Photos! After selecting your favourites, I will retouch your chosen images in detail. About a week later you will receive a link to download your set of photos in both low (for web) and high resolution (for print). Voilà!

How many outfits do I need to bring?

Depending on the package you choose, I recommend 3-5 different outfits.

Do I need to wear makeup?

Generally I recommend to wear makeup for a photoshoot, even if only mascara and some lip gloss. For best results I suggest to use a makeup artist. I’ve partnered with a professional and she understands how to use makeup to bring out your features in the most charming and natural way. In addition to her skill, she only uses organic and cruelty-free products.

If you choose the Inspired or Abundant Package, I’d be happy to arrange her to join your shoot. Please know that the costs for the makeup artist are not included in the package price.

I have skin imperfections – Can the photos be retouched?

Yes, of course! I specialize in retouching skin in order to enhance the look of my clients with full integrity. Retouching in detail is quite a lengthy process. To keep it fair and balanced, I include 2-5 images I work on closely, depending on the package.
All images undergo careful retouching and I’m sure you will love the outcome. I usually customize my post production to your personal needs.

How do I pay?

Payments are made in 2 steps. To lock your booking in, I am asking you to pay a 50% deposit upon setting the date of the photoshoot. This deposit is non refundable. The second part of the payment is due before the photoshoot starts. I accept cash, Paypal and bank transfers.

How long does it take to get my photos?

I looooove to keep the momentum up! There are several steps involved in order to get your finished photos, which can take anywhere from two to four weeks. The time simply depends on how quickly we move through the process.

Step 1: Within two weeks after our photoshoot you will receive a link to an online gallery with your photos. At this stage the photos are called ‘proofs’ because they are only mildly retouched, with the sole purpose for you to select the ones you like best. Depending on your package, you can expect between 80 and 150 proofs to choose from.

Step 2: Now its up to you to select your favourites. The sooner you pick your photos, the sooner we can move to the next step.

Step 3: Once you confirm your selection, I will retouch your chosen images in detail. Depending on the number of photos, this can take up to two weeks.

Step 4: As soon as this is done, you will receive a link to download your set of photos. Voilà!
