The Netherlands boasts of many forests some bang in the middle of the city and some right outside. The beautiful autumn colours at it’s best and if it’s your favourite season, it will be a session filled with earthy tones.

When it starts getting a bit chilly outside for the little ones, inside the house is always an option. Huge Dutch windows allow for beautiful light to stream in an make for extremely cozy portraits.Vinita Salome Photography-Lifetyle Portrait Photographer Exclusively For Children & Family Amserdam|The Hague|Utrecht|Rotterdam

When the leaves start to change colours the canals in Amsterdam take on another site that can give another dimension to your family portraits.Vinita Salome Photography-Lifetyle Portrait Photographer Exclusively For Children & Family Amserdam|The Hague|Utrecht|Rotterdam

And last but not the least, the beach gets quiet and when we have an Indian summer like this year, the beach has some gorgeous lighting at this time of the year.

If you would like to book your Autumn sessions in The Hague, Amsterdam or any other location in The Netherlands, I would be happy to travel to you. Please feel free to contact me!

We did the most ordinary things but somehow time makes this an extra ordinary moment. A tangible reminder for both parent and child.

Please feel free to contact me if you are considering a family session. I would be delighted to discuss your family session further.

You would have never believed they hadn’t seen each other for 3 years. These are one of the advantages of modern technology. Without further ado I introduce you to my cheeky monkeys. The cheeky boy is mine and the cheeky girl is my brother’s. It’s an honour to be able to document them at specific intervals and see them grow up.

Any of you considering your on location family portraits, sibling or cousin sessions, do contact me to see what we can create together!

An Image That Speaks Volumes: FamilyAugust 23, 2016

Vinita Salome Photography-Lifetyle Portrait Photographer Exclusively For Children & Family Amserdam|The Hague|Utrecht|RotterdamPersonal projects are a great adventure that often lead us through the most unlikely of paths. Our intention in starting this project is to hone our skills and see where this particular path takes us. We would love it if you joined us on this adventure.
Our intention is for the images to do the talking. We believe a single moment captured forever in a photograph can speak volumes. These images require no words and at the same time, tell a whole story.
Every other month, we will choose a single image to share with you. These images will usually follow a theme. By seeing, we hope you hear our voices.

Vinita Salome Photography-Lifetyle Travel PhotographeAmserdam|The Hague|Utrecht|RotterdamThe mysterious book that took nearly 3 years to come out! We went from people asking about our second book on Gouda to silence. At some point daring to bring up the topic at the back of our minds wondering whether it will all come to fruition or not. The biggest struggle was in believing and till the last minute we had our share of frustrations which now make amusing stories worth talking about at our presentations.

So without further ado. The book – A Sample of Gouda is here! We had a cozy launch on the 30th of June, the terrible weather couldn’t dampen our spirits.

Our next gig on August 25, 2016 is (wo)manning a table at the Women’s Business Initiative International in The Hague where the new book will be showcased.

Make sure you get a copy with the summer special on now! There is alot going on and Persephone and I look forward to seeing you all at one of these events!

Our summer special, a free PDF of The Bee’s Tour of Gouda, Buzzing Through Vinita’s Lens. with every purchase of A Sample of Gouda is on until August 31, 2016.

Angloinfo South Holland is featuring five short stories specially written for the promotion of the book, each  one using a character of one of the stories in the book. A few extras! We hope you enjoy them.

On September 2, 2016 Dawn Black will lead a photowalk around Gouda. Persephone and I will be present during the walk and we looking forward to meeting photographers interested in discovering the city. For more details/to register email: Dawn Black Photography

Impressions from March & April : A Personal ProjectMay 20, 2016

“Impressions‘ is a creative project by an eclectic group of female photographers from around the globe. We aim to share the inspiration behind what we do through our bimonthly posts.

Every other month, we will be sharing 8 images that tell the story of what inspired us in the previous weeks: our families, nature, weather, or maybe even work itself! We are free to explore the meaning of ‘impressions’, and it is likely to change month to month.’

We had an extremely long winter and couldn’t wait for spring to arrive. We made it through the cold rainy days with gems peeking out at us and had cosy afternoons to share some warmth. Please make sure to stop by the very talented Susanne Ashby’s blog to have a look at her impressions for March & April and get some gorgeous imagery coming your way.

Whenever a family books a session, I’m always grateful that they allow me into their lives to show me glimpses of the bonds that they share. I know this family personally and what struck me about them was their closeness and a very tender way they had of interacting with each other. Mom is super creative and made sure the boys were part of the session even before the actual session took place. Because of this preparation, although, boys can feel awkward at this age, these two did their best and were stars!

If you would like to book a session I have one spot left in May and two in June before we break for the summer! The sun is gorgeous and I can think of many locations to have a gorgeous family session! Contact me to book your session!

I always get asked what are we going to do if it rains. In the years of photographing outdoors in The Netherlands (anyone who lives here knows our national past time is discussing the ever changing weather). I have come to learn that following my gut combined with a plan B is the best way to go. I have rarely have had to cancel a session.
Agreed this requires having a certain amount of flexibility for my clients.
It may also seem like too much stress right before a session. Booking a session with me might be a little bit of living on the edge but if you trust me and go with the flow, I promise together we will create magic like we did at the fields. Thank you my gorgeous clients for coming out and the little ones for braving the cold wind!
