It’s pretty simple: as an LGBT queer photographer, I want everyone to feel beautiful in front of my camera. And that afterwards you look at the photos with pride and think: yes, that’s totally me!
To me, you’re most beautiful when you dare to be yourself unashamedly – whatever that means to you.
Tell your own story and let me capture it!
I am a queer photographer. From experience, I know that as an LGBT or queer person it is not always obvious to be completely yourself.
For me, it is important to create a safe space during a photo shoot or wedding report. Nothing is more annoying than a photographer who suddenly appears transphobic or homophobic.
Let’s Celebrate Diversity!
We can go all out with glitter and rainbows during Pride (a real unicorn? Why not!)?
But of course, not everyone is Fabulous with a capital F. During my photo shoots, you can be your authentic self!
LGBT / Gay Photoshoot Amsterdam & surroundings
As a portrait photographer, I photograph you as you are. Maybe you want a special coming out photo shoot, a fun Pride memory, or maybe you just want to feel comfortable in front of the camera. Take a look around my website and see if my images appeal to you!
I am flexible in terms of location, but Amsterdam is where I’m based!
But I also like to capture other moments. If you are pregnant, you can book a pregnancy shoot with me, or a newborn shoot when your baby is born.
Good to know: I don’t do pink/blue gender reveal photography. As a queer photographer, I know that gender and sex don’t always match.
Of course, I’m open to fun queer & gender-neutral photo ideas! Or a gender reveal photo shoot when coming out!
Make it ✨ EXTRA ✨
You are special! If you also want to make your photoshoot special, we can discuss this! I have rainbow flags, I am flexible in location, and I am always open to ideas.
It is special that we can celebrate marriage for all couples in the Netherlands since 2001. As a queer photographer, my heart beats faster when I get to capture something so beautiful!
So I DO! I do want to photograph your wedding. Or registered partnership, engagement, or another (nontraditional) beautiful moment.

A beautiful series of photos that make me feel like a fashion model, as the happy, beautiful woman I am.
As a queer person, finding a photographer that understands me was really important. Their technical skill and creativity speak for itself, but for me what makes them stand out was their ability to make me feel comfortable in front of the camera.
As a plus size model, I felt like Roxanne and Maartje helped me celebrate my curves, not hide them.
