I’m Fleur. Born in the Netherlands I realized from a very young age that my passion lay in working with people, especially children. Growing up I always carried around a camera and loved being in charge of the family holiday photos. As I got older I worked in Early Childhood Education for 3 years, but with my passion for photography always in the back of my mind I decided to take it a step further and in 2012 I gained my Bachelor of Applied Visual Imaging, majoring in Photography. During this time I was able to further develop my skills and win several awards. From being named the winner of the prestigious Canon Eye Con Awards in 2011 to several GOLD awards at the NZIPP IRIS Awards.
I spent the next few years traveling, photographing people and places overseas. From the streets of Paris, to the jungle of Madagascar, the slums of Kenya and the South African bush I was able to live the life I had always dreamed of.
Returning back to New Zealand I continued working as a photographer as well as a Youth Worker and Motivational Speaker for teenagers.
As a photographer I specialize in photographing all the stages of your family’s life. From pregnancy to newborn, your engagement or wedding day, the entire family or just you and your partner, I work in a very fun and relaxed way, making sure everyone feels at ease.
When children are present, I love my sessions to be led by them, allowing me to capture your family in the most genuine and relaxed way, in a natural environment, creating imagery that tells your story.
My sessions are about so much more than capturing you or your child’s likeness. They are about creating memories, treasured pieces of art that will become priceless over time.
