Van den Steenhoven Family

The most wonderful day for Van den Steenhoven family with photos to cherish forever. I met Inez few months back when she was updating her business portraits. She was so pleased with the experience that she came back for with her beautiful family for timeless portraits. We had the most amazing time capturing memories that will survive generations.

Watch Behind The Scenes:

Rita & Olivia

It is the joy of my profession to be able to capture people and the story of their lives. I met Rita few years back when she was updating her business portraits. It was such a pleasure to photograph her again, this time with her teenage daughter Olivia. There's a beautiful bond between them that we captured for all time in timeless style!

Janine & Sumirtie

Mother & Daughter will always be one of the most powerful Sessions and my personal favorite. The ultimate girls' day out and a bonding experience! And the photographs you and generations to come will cherish forever!

Janine just had her second baby a few months ago, so it was time for a little pampering for herself! She wanted to treat her mom too, so they went shopping, looked through their closets for favorite dresses and enjoyed having their hair & make-up done and then getting photographed together!

My mom and I had a lot of fun and are thankful for the wonderful opportunity you gave us to capture this point in our lives. The photos were shot in such a timeless and bright style that we will continue to enjoy them for years. Thank you Agnes and Sara for making this an experience of a lifetime for us both!

Decorating with Portraits - 3 Easy Ways

Seaside scenes, landscapes and abstract works all have their place, but nothing will ever be as meaningful and cherished as beautiful portraits of you and your family. Your portraits displayed proudly celebrate your family, fill the rooms with it's history and simply make you smile every single day you look at them. They add indescribable warmth and make your home truly Yours.

Today I want to share with you 3 of my favourite, creative ways of decorating with portraits that are easy, elegant and modern!

  1. Gallery Wall

A Gallery Wall is such a creative way of displaying your portraits. It is always a big conversation-starter in our home. Sky is the limit here! You can mix different styles of frames to create a more eclectic look. To add a twist, I hanged the frames, but left the middle one leaning on the wall. You can add photographs to your wall as you create more memories and as your family grows!

  1. Portrait Shelf

A Portrait Shelf gives you so much freedom - you can move your portraits around, try different combinations and easily add to it as you go!

3. Sideboard Portrait Display

This is a very traditional way of decorating. My tip to make it more contemporary is to not only use frames! Right here I mixed frames with beautiful bamboo blocks to add versatility and depth.

Few last tips:

  1. Use mainly Black & White Photographs – they are timeless and will not create a messy look.

  2. Use Matts – even a small photograph in a matt looks elegant and grand!

  3. Choose Candid Photographs expressing emotion in addition to traditional portraits for Variety!
