Welcome to my website, happy to have you! I am Maartje, queer photographer, writer, and traveler. My imagery is colorful, happy and personal; just like me! I love to work on location, with natural light and as little ‘stuffy’ posing as possible.
I am specialized in LGBT photography; everyone is welcome in front of my camera As a queer woman, I know it can be uncomfortable if you don’t know if you can be yourself completely!
Let me tell your story
As a portrait photographer I love to capture who you are. But I can also let locations shine on pictures.
Have you always wanted to do a romantic photoshoot with your partner(s)? You came to the right place!
I love love and it’s an honor to capture it during a loveshoot.
A wedding is so special! I’m honored if I may capture your beautiful day/weekend! There are many options, from second photographer to a wedding film!
You’re making a new human, how special?! I’m honored to photograph you during a pregnancy shoot.
We meet at a beautiful spot outdoors, or I come photograph you in the comfort of your home.
The moment that they are this tiny will never return! I love photographing newborns and their parent(s).

When I took Rox and Maartje to one of my favorite spots in Mexico City, I was convinced they’d appreciate how photo-worthy it is and I was sure they’d come up with a clever and amazing way to use the atmosphere, colours, and distribution of the place to create an image worth capturing. I didn’t, however, expect for it to be me standing in front of the camera. I’ve never been too comfortable when having my picture taken because I tend to feel like all my insecurities are heightened. However, Rox and Maartje assured to me that the key aspects were to relax, enjoy it, and trust the photographer (which is very easy with them being so charming, fun, and optimistic). They talked me through it, made me laugh, and always encouraged me to feel as natural with my mind and body as I do in my everyday. They have a special eye for noticing how beauty relates to the ways in which something or someone is unapologetically authentic, and their photography style reflects it. Not only do they really love photography, but they're amazing at it.

Rox en Maartje waren de videographers op onze bruiloft. Zij hebben werkelijk waar al mijn verwachtingen overtroffen. We hebben zo’n geweldig mooie video van de meest speciale dag van mijn leven. Elke keer als ik er naar kijk voelt het weer alsof het gisteren was. Het brengt alle emoties terug. Rox en Maartje zijn super professioneel. Ze zijn aanwezig in alle chaos, maar zonder dat je er bewust van bent dat ze de mooiste momenten vast leggen. Ze zijn behulpzaam, heel vriendelijk en denken echt mee om het beste resultaat te krijgen. Ik raad echt iedereen aan om Maartje en Rox te betrekken bij de mooiste dag van je leven. Zij brengen de herinneringen weer terug tot leven. Een aandenken waar je de rest van je leven samen van kan genieten!
