January update

Well hello there. I am back!
My website was offline for the past month due to some technical issues. But I am back online, with a little help from my friends. So, what happened since my last blog post?

I went on an assignment to take portret pictures of pregnant ladies. It was a nice new experience, which I hope to practice more often. Thinking of my own pregnancy in 2015, how I felt and all the changes your body goes through (which do not necessarily make you feel pretty), helped me to make the women feel comfortable with themselves and the camera.

Of course, December was filled with the usual holiday celebrations. I took some quality time off with my family, in a cabin in the woods. And we had a great celebration of our daughter's first birthday, with a beautiful Miffy cake!

Last but not least, I have been working on a new project; a startup for 3voor12 Leiden! During my days as a photographer with 3voor12 Den Haag, I found the need for Leiden's own platform and editors. Today, the first writers and photographers are aboard, a webdomain bought and a more detailed plan (along with funding opportunities) is in the making. I am siked! And ready for 2017!
