Witchy Halloween Photo Shoot With Vandervenfotografie

Halloween is an amazing time of year to get creative with photography. Although Halloween is not actually a traditional Dutch thing, and the Dutch don’t really seem to go in for Halloween the same way as other countries, I just can’t let it pass unnoticed. I just love this spooky holiday too much! I mean, what’s not to like about Halloween? It’s spooky, it’s fun, it’s the awesome decorations, it’s dressing up (you can be as creative as you want), it inspires generosity ànd anyone can enjoy (not just the kids).

As it comes to Halloween creatures, Witches are probably one of the most traditional as well as mysterious entities we associate with Halloween. The image of a witch riding her broomstick across a full moon is probably still one of the most familiair Halloween symbols today.

I personally love witches and witch stories. So, I decided to honor this image, by working out a Witchy (but classy) Halloween photo shoot. Smoke bombs, a witches kettle, skulls, and even a magic wand were packed to go. We visited one of my favorite locations. You may recognize it from 2018’s Outdoor Burlesque With Photographer Made By Manja.

Photographer(s) Vandervenfotografie (Cornel and Marijke van der Ven) and I really had a wicked time! We experimented with smoke bomb positioning, resulted in a really cool effect.

Happy Halloween, everyone!

 

Dark Angel Photo Shooting

I am no angel… or am I?

Of course I am no (real) angel. But there’s just something about angels that attracts me. Perhaps it’s because of they are supernatural creatures which often are associated with fantasy. Or perhaps it’s just their beautiful appearance. Anyway, there’s just something magical about angels. 

As most of you already know, I like working out fantasy themed photo shootings. And what better way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon than spending time with the man you love AND doing one of your favorite hobbies? So, I grabbed my huge angel wings from the attic and we went to a nearby forest to work out an angel themed photo shooting. There is just no better place for an angel photo shooting than the forest. Like angels, forests are downright magical.

Enchanted Forest

Remember my recent post of 20th April about me and my boyfriend went location scouting? Last week, we “finally” found some time for working out our awesome idea.

With an ode to fairytales, our objective for this photo shooting was to create an enchanted forest scene, by using nothing as the landscape. So, no extra props. For those who don’t know, props – short for theatrical properties – are (portable) objects used in studios or locations that photographic subjects use to enhance the shot realism.

I was thrilled by our concept of the enchanted forest photo shooting, because I just love forests. Forests are downright magical. Not only are you surrounded by nature’s raw beauty, forests have a way of capturing the imagination. Surrounded by tall trees, a pond, lots of vegetation and nature’s (sun)light, this lovely shoot was both magical as mysterious.

Modern Castle

Not all castles are medieval relics. A few weeks ago, my sweet boyfriend Count vlAD and I had photo shooting together at Groot Horloo Castle. This unique castle styled apartment complex was built around 2008. The beautiful modern structure offers the style and regality of a classic castle without denying their residents modern comforts. At the top of the castle you get stunning views over lake Wolderwijd. It’s a really impressive location with many excellent possibilities for photo shoots.

At the end of our visit, we had the unexpected honor to take some pictures with a beautiful horse called Floris, which at one point even was eating treats out of my hand. A nice bonus to our day’s schedule.

I just love working together with my sweet boyfriend during photo shootings. It’s really great enjoying the same hobbies together. Makes me feel like we were made for each other even more.

I am as pleased as punch with the results. You can also find the pictures on my Facebook page.
