From Sasha Care
I really recommend Nienke and here's why: I am totally not a fan of photos (well I love them as long as I am not in them!), you know when you just can't help pulling a weird face as soon as a camera looks in your direction and you want to crawl inside yourself and hide and somehow you look like someone just stole your soul in every picture....Yup that's me!
However a friend 'surprised me', you can imagine how delighted I was to receive a gift of a photography session!
Nienke came along to a gathering of close friends who were celebrating friendship and an island leaving. It was an emotional and poignant time. Much to my surprise I only felt self conscious for about 10 minutes. Somehow Nienke was able to blend herself in with us and worked with huge sensitivity and respect. I never felt that Nienke or her camera were intruders to our celebrations, in fact quite the opposite. It was not long at all before I felt totally comfortable to even have some shots face on to the camera.
Nienke has brought through such tender moments, she has found creative ways to bring out the love which was present that day and a sense of what was shared with my dearest friends. There are fun shots, creative shots, tearful shots, it's all there. I can't tell you how much joy I get from now looking at these memories and literally being able to re-feel the love and sentiment of the day. It really is such a gift. Nienke is a beautiful person who consequently takes beautiful photos. I just can't tell you how grateful I am to have such tender moments brought back to life through her skill and sensitivity and perception of the situation.
I am sure you would be just as delighted as me. Thanks so much Nienke you are wonderful xx
