"You, being yourself, unknowingly inspires others to be themselves." -Mooji

I’m a colorful photographer in Amsterdam.

My name is Nadine and I live with my partner, Stefan and our two cats: Buffy and Fluffy in a terraced house overlooking a park. On warm days, we swim in the nearby lake (not the cats, for obvious reasons). In the winter we spend our evenings on the couch, catching up on movies. If we’re not at home, were lazing about a campsite somewhere in Europe

I believe that every single person is photogenic. Bringing that out in their photos is what gives me the most joy in photography.

I’ve always had a desire to make people feel good about themselves,

especially if they feel insecure and shy, which is how I felt most of my life. I was (and still am) an introvert and spent most of my angsty teenage years daydreaming about being the next vampire slayer or happily married to Dean Winchester from Supernatural (I still dream about marrying Dean Winchester).

Even though I’m an introvert,

I can totally bring the fun when I need to! I really enjoy doing this while I'm shooting, but always keeping a mind that I need to sprint home and get under a blanket with my cats afterwards.

If you feel that you might not be good enough, or pretty enough, or thin enough,

I hope that some of the photos here on my website inspire you to do a photoshoot. I want to show you that it's O.K. to be your truest, most authentic self and to be proud of who you are. You are good enough to have an amazing photoshoot, regardless of experience or awkwardness.

Fast Facts

I grew up in South Africa

I only moved to the Netherlands when I was 19! Probably one of my biggest privileges was getting a Dutch passport on my 18th birthday. I came to Amsterdam with very little money (and life experience) and after a year I met my partner Stefan. Technically he's still my boyfriend, but after 12 years I think he can be upgraded to my partner in life and love.

 

I love camping!

Being in nature, campfires, swimming in lakes, not having to shower for 3 days... It's truly my favorite thing in the world to do.

 

 

I pretend my life has a soundtrack

Music has been an escape and comfort throughout my life. I really can't imagine a day without listening to Spotify. Some of my fondest memories include Queen, The Arcade Fire, Johnny Cash and Roxette.

 

I love T.V.

Like a true child of the 90's, I grew up on T.V. and movies. I can throw pop culture references like a pro and have had an obsession with Buffy The Vampire Slayer since I was an angsty 13 year old.

 

In 2018, Stefan and I renovated a house!

It was the most difficult and rewarding experience I've ever had the privilege of undertaking. And now I just want to DIY the shit out of everything.

THIS:

 

I like to keep things casual and work best with people who value authenticity and a good laugh.

 

It really doesn't matter if you've never done a photoshoot before, or if you're awkward in front of the camera (I am too!). You need someone who can take cool photos in a relaxed and informal way (and tell you exactly what to do!). You're definitely not about the fancy stuff and making a fuss about things has never been your style. You want real, happy and authentic photos of the people you love most in this world. And that's all that really matters.
