On maternity leave + my plans for next year


October 21, 2020

It’s been a while since I’ve written something on my blog, but I just wanted to quickly pop in here and let you know that I’m currently on maternity leave. If you follow me on Instagram, you might already know that my husband and I are expecting our first child!

My maternity leave

My due date is November 1. This means that I can’t take on any weddings or other photoshoots until at least the end of 2020. However, you can still book me for weddings and photoshoots next year. In fact, next year’s weddings are filling up fast, so I would recommend to inquire about your wedding date sooner rather than later!

During my maternity leave, you can still reach me via email, so do contact me if you’re interested in a session next year. I’m still doing meetings via Skype to get to know new bridal couples.

Plans for 2021

My plan for next year is to keep doing weddings and photoshoots. However, since my family will be my no. 1 priority, I probably won’t travel as much as I used to do. Destination weddings and photoshoots in Europe are still an option, but limited!

I will also probably do more portrait shoots for couples, families, maternity and newborn. Since I will be a mom soon, I now truly understand the importance of documenting the different phases in life, especially with small children who grow up fast. You can inquire about these photoshoots already for next year. I will probably also add these type of portraits in the form of mini-sessions later on.

2020 was and still is a crazy year for everyone. I hope you’re doing well. I’m going to enjoy the rest of my maternity leave and wait for the little one to come. Feel free to connect with me on Instagram to stay updated! Stay healthy and safe and hopefully we will speak soon!
