Your Pregnancy and Maternity Photographer in Amsterdam

When it comes to pregnancy and newborn photography, it is natural to think about a studio session with staged poses. As an on-location lifestyle maternity photographer, I come to your house to capture this exceptional moment in your life.  In addition to immortalizing the joy and beauty of your pregnancy, this shooting will also allow capturing family moments and details of your house, particularly the room you have prepared for your little treasure who will soon join the family. And once your little one is born, a lifestyle photoshoot is a way to snap and memorialize the first smile or the first steps of your little wonder

A maternity or newborn lifestyle on-location session will give a more spontaneous and natural effect to your photos, capturing the atmosphere of your everyday environment.

A relaxed and spontaneous photo report that will document this wonderful event and tell a story, YOUR story!

This type of photoshoot requires a bit more preparation and patience, the time to catch some genuine moments, but also for you to have a rest if needed or during a family session to take care of your little one. A 2 hr session minimum is recommended, for a relaxed and fun experience!

Do not hesitate to contact me to discuss your project and your wishes!

Capture inestimable, everlasting and unique memories
of this very special time of your life with candid and authentic images

Melanie recently took pictures during our party, with great results. I think taking pictures of dancing people in a dark room is the hardest thing there is, but Melanie did it. And how! All photos razor sharp, smiling people, dancing friends, well exposed. Thank you for this lasting memory.

Professional photographer with the friendliest and kindest attitude! Melanie offered so many solutions and ideas for our proposal photoshoot and helped keep me calm as plans changed due to weather or last minute hiccups. I was able to stay in constant contact with her and everything went according to plan. Highly recommend!!

For our PR workshop of the German National Tourist Board in September 2020 (corona-proof edition) we worked together with Melanie and were more than satisfied! Melanie is very professional, the planning and communication before the event was uncomplicated and fast. She brings her own ideas, but also pays close attention to what the company wants. The results are really great - Melanie definitely has an unique way of capturing people's emotions. Thanks again for your great work and see you at our next event!
I have worked with Melanie and i strongly recommend her services. She is very responsive, highly professional and always meets expectations. If you are looking for capturing the most important moments of your life in an artistic and highly quality manner - talk to Melanie! She will make sure you get what you are looking for, even if it takes her to roll on a dusty floor so that you and your precious moments are captured in the best light
