I’m a full-time photographer in the Netherlands and I’m planning on showing you a but more of my life as a photographer. Are you interested in photography? Are you looking for a free-online Photography course? Do you want to see the inside of a Photo Studio? Then please, watch my videos and subscribe to my channel!

I’m planning on sharing videos in which I show you my typical work-week as a photographer. I will give you tips & tricks concerning photography, photo shoots, backdrops, studio props, camera settings (iso, aperture, shutter speed, white balance), photoshoot outfits, photoshoot make-up etc.

Bedankt voor het kijken! Ik ben een full-time fotograaf in Nederland en ik wil je graag iets meer laten zien over mijn werk als fotograaf. Wil je meer weten over (digitale) fotografie? Wil je weten hoe een fotostudio er van binnen uitziet? Ben je op zoek naar een gratis online cursus fotografie? Kijk dan mijn videos en abonneer je op mijn kanaal. Ik zal videos maken over camera instellingen (iso, sluitertijd, diafragma, wit-balans), studio achtergronden, fotoshoot outfits, fotoshoot make-up enz.

If you are interested in photographing newborn babies yourself I would highly recommend you to first learn about photography in general. Master you camera, photograph in the Manual mode, learn about aperture, iso, shutter speed, white balance, light and composition. Take photos of your friends (adults or very patient older kids) and make sure you don’t have to think about your camera anymore when photographing babies. Learn about editing as well. Please, don’t experiment photographing Newborn babies without training. Attend a workshop by an experienced and professional photographer with an expertise in Newborn Photography. Learn about the anatomy of babies and invest in good quality cameras, lenses and props. Babies are extremely vulnerable and small and their safety and comfort should be your highest priority. Start with simple poses and make sure you know and understand that many ‘pinterest poses’ are composites. Please, don’t try this at home. If you want beautiful photos of your own Newborn Baby, I highly recommend you to hire a professional and experienced photographer who is trained and specialised in Newborn Photography.

  1. Summer _ says:

    4:13 anyone know the size of the backdrop to fit this stand? I want to order the stand and some backdrops but want the right size

  2. Consider switching to a Sony camera. Your eye goes out of focus quite a bit in your videos. Sony’s eye AF is amazing!!! Perfect for photos and video, you just can’t beat mirrorless. Love your videos!!

  3. I've been binge watching all your videos since the start of the pandemic and your videos helped me a lot. I also take sitter session and 1st birthday sessions. Thanks for another great content, keep safe!

  4. What type of gloves are you using here?

  5. Hi Fenna ! Is your floor mat smelling something. I've bought one and it smells plastic…

  6. Hi Fenna! Could you show us your beanbag without a backdrop? I think I overfilled my bag because I have a hard time getting a flat surface. I used it for the first time yesterday for a session and was not 100% happy with it

  7. Saher Kidwai says:

    Is the floor mat like neoprene which can be used for a cake smash as well ?

  8. Love your videos a lot! Cheers!

  9. DK RAQ says:

    Hi, do you mind sharing focal length you usually use, I'm curious coz, your so close to the babies. btw love so much your content..

  10. Hi Fenna, do you use a heater with older babies?

  11. Hi Fenna,
    I am a huge fan of your work, appreciate your channel and hope to be successful like you some day!
    With regard to cleanliness, how do you clean your camera between sessions?

  12. Daann says:

    Die mat lijkt mij erg handig om mee te nemen naar de mensen thuis! Welke afmeting heb je gebruikt?

  13. Hello, Fenna! I’ve been following you for some time and you inspire and motivate me to press forward with my indoor photography for babies/children. I have a question regarding your backdrop that you use for sitting and cake smash sessions, how wide and tall is your backdrop and is it pure white or a soft white? I hope to hear back from you because I’m getting ready to order my backdrops soon! What about floor drops? Are those needed as well?


  14. It Is great to watch how different are our work flows! You were really lucky with that sleepyhead little girl 😍! I usually reject babies older than 25 days because i can't make them sleep, and i don't like my results.

  15. I love your work. I am just starting out in photography and I hope to be as good as you one day. You inspire me so much 💜💜💜

  16. What’s the best type of backdrop to use?

  17. Tink_Em says:

    Thanks Fenna I love your work

  18. sincbme says:

    Hi Deanna, did you get the 5×4 size?

  19. Not to be or to insight any sort of an argument, it is as it is that you need to "comply" to the fake pandemic. I hope you do not have to any more some time soon.

  20. Love your work! I was starting to set up my photography business right before coronavirus and have been afraid of the unknown and you have given me courage to start again…..Thank you xoxo
