In the digital era we have received this incredible gift of being able to take more than only a couple of pictures with our family in a lifetime. Our cameras can now capture all the time spent caring and nurturing for our tiny humans that now feels like never ending busyness. We have the gift to revisit those small moments that seem so insignificant...until they’re gone. We can use this gift to take more than perfectly posed images of our families wearing matching sweaters in perfect light, we can give ourselves meaningful memories to sustain us in those moments when we wonder what we were thinking when we signed up for parenthood, and we can give our kids the childhood memories that we ourselves can only try to piece together from our own.

Hi, I’m Theo and in my 15 years as a family photographer, I discovered that life is too short to be anything but exactly who you are. I believe in honesty, I support authenticity and I strive for meaningfulness. I know memories can lose their edges quickly. And I know that memories are the only things we’re left with. I do my best to create family photography that honours all of that.

De Villeneuve-Radu family

“We have booked a “day in the life” session with her, at the end of October 2020 and this was the most amazing, touch-base with reality moment in our hectic life. We have never done this before as a family (with three young boys) and we have enjoyed every moment of our special day! Theo is very friendly, committed, flexible and her style is so delicate! She captured feelings and expressions which are precious to us. The boys loved her!! We are so looking forward to our next sessions with her!”

I take pride in the print quality and high level craftsmanship of the albums I offer. I work with one of the best album manufacturers worldwide to offer family albums that combine exceptional quality with environmental concerns, using paper that only comes from sustainably managed forests that have been certified by FSC®.

The family album is available in natural linen or sustainable suede fabrics, 28 colours and 3 different cover options. You can also add a box to store your family album in and order grandparents album copies.

Every album comes with instructions of use and a lifetime warranty.


What is your experience as a family photographer? How many families have you photographed?

I have been a family photographer for over 15 years ago. I am an internationally published and awarded photographer, having been ranked in the TOP 5 family photographers in the Netherlands, TOP 10 storytellers worldwide and TOP 30 photographers overall by This is Reportage: Family, a judge in photography competitions and a speaker at photography conferences. I have photographed more than 350 families until now.

What is your style? And what is documentary family photography?

My goal in photographing your family is to offer you slices of real life - who you are, what you do, how you connect to each other. I want to photograph the way your life feels, not just how it looks. I believe that family life is a beautiful mess, that a family photo doesn’t have to be perfect and that imperfection is a magical form of freedom. It might feel uninteresting to you, but the story we are telling is not about that. We are doing this for our future selfs as parents and our kids future adult selves. This is how they will actually remember their childhood and who their parents were. All you need to do is be yourselves. Don’t worry about the photographer, don’t clean the whole house before, don’t overthink it. Just trust me enough to let me in and tell the story of your family life just as it is. Nothing staged, nothing posed, just the honest, authentic, and meaningful story of who you really are. That's what documentary family photography is all about.

Where will we do the shoot?

The photo shoot will be done outdoors and/or in your home or anywhere that's meaningful to the story of your family. I live in The Hague but I travel to document family life throughout the Netherlands and Europe.

When will we be receiving the images?

I have a maximum of 2 weeks delivery time for short photo shoots and 4 weeks for "day in the life" sessions.

Do we receive digital images? How about printed ones? Can you do an album for us?

All sessions include digital images and most sessions also include an album, because I believe that memories deserve more than to be forgotten on iPads, hard drives and cloud services. You will be able to choose prints, albums and wall art in the store available within your online gallery.

How do we book you?

I believe having a conversation so we can see if I am the right photographer for you is very beneficial. We can schedule a call to get to know each other and see if we are a good match. Then I will prepare a contract and an invoice for a flat booking fee of 100€. Once these are signed and payed for, your session is booked.


Photography is priceless so thank you so much for your interest in my art! In order to preserve the high quality of my work I only do a limited amount of family shoots per year, so please contact me sooner rather than later to make sure I am available. I do my best to answer all messages within 48h.

If you have an urgent request, you can also reach me on whatsapp using the speech bubble in the bottom right corner of this page.

I welcome and support everybody 🏳️‍🌈

“Because when I look at you, I can feel it. And I look at you and I’m home.”
