The Mother stories

By | Lennebelle Petites, photography, Uncategorized | One Comment


We did our first photoshoot for Lennebelle Petites. The photoshoots will be with cool mamma’s and their child(ren); the Mother stories. Inspiring mothers telling their stories and showing the love and special connection between them end their little ones.

I am always curious how other moms go about, how they balance life, their tips and tricks about motherhood, their favorite places and things to do, their moments of joy and fondest memories. This is what the Mother Stories will be all about!

And of course showing the first collection of all items by Lennebelle Petites! Soon more!

Another day at the beach

By | Family, photography, travel | No Comments

I06A2231Yesterday we had another perfect day at the beach. This time we ended up in Zandvoort. We were planning to go to ‘Buitenplaats de Plantage’ but it happened to be closed so we decided to go to Zandvoort and I am glad we did. It was so nice to watch all the kitesurfers and the big waves.

We had lunch at Ubuntu Beach, a really nice and relaxing spot with good food and a super nice swing which Mette loved. We will definitely come back here.

Ofcourse my love made beautiful photo’s for our family blog All Thing Nous, our online family photo album. He puts so much time and effort in All Things Nous. It is such a precious blog keeping all our fun, special and intimate family moments; through our eyes into our memories. I will show more outtakes of All Things Nous here.

You can find more of his work here.



The making of the new lookbook

IMG_5010 IMG_5021Making the new lookbook was a lot of fun but also everytime exciting. I always have this image in my head what it is supposed to look like and it turns out different every time, but in a good way. I was so happy to find Nathalie (the model) by coincidence. I think she is really gorgeous and with my friend Sophia taking care of the photography I knew the lookbook would be in good hands. We did the photoshoot at my place, a lot of light and a lot of white.

The new collection is inspired by our trip to Bali and I used a lot of jade, amethyst and moonstone in pink and grey. And now all items are also available in rose plated.

Last week I asked Sophia (friend, photographer, co-founder of Broodnuchter ) to make some photos of me and my belly. Often I think pregnancy photos are corny and a little bit strange. But I love Sophias style so I kwew I would be in great hands. I am really happy with the result. My personal favourites are the first one  (because its classic and timeless) and the one with Jack the cat with his eyes closed because it’s a cosy image.

Just counting the days now,…

Christmas breakfast

By | photography, treats & treasures | 2 Comments

We enjoyed our last christmas breakfast with just the two of us and of course Jack, the cat! Joey made some really nice photos with the new camera. (check out more pics at Cloud Cuckoo) Christmas eve and Christmas day we spend with family and we got really spoilt with nice gifts.

As you can see our home is getting more finished every week now. There are a few things I’ll keep on my to do list when the big belly (38 and a bit weeks now!) is gone and ‘working’ in the house is little bit easier.

At this moment I am getting more excited about the near future with the three of us and leaving ‘our lives as we know it’ behind. I am pretty much ready to be a ‘mom’ and can’t wait to meet her.

Corners in our new place

Here a sneak peak of some corners in our new place. It has been 2 months since we first got the key, so much work has been done but we will probably need another two months to finish it all. We still often say to eachother what an amazing new appartment we have and how lucky we are!

With the first real days of summer the roofterrace is a real treat but also our backyard, the parc t Kralingse bos, just 100 steps away, is just perfect.

A new crush,…

To the beach

By | photography, travel | 6 Comments

This weekend I am off to the beach! I love this serie of photos called ‘Praia Pequina’ by Christian Chaize. You can just feel a day at the beach. I always love the french fries at the beachrestaurant, the rosy feel after a long day at the beach and ‘beach hair’ (you know what I mean) is always the best!
