#HELLOSUMMERSTORIES photo challenge | Amsterdam Portrait Photographer and Filmmaker


Hey friends, we are counting down the days till the kids are out of school and off for summer holidays! Honestly, I'm very looking forward to leave behind that morning school routine.

Summer is a magical time and so many memories are made during this season of our children's life. Summer is a reminder of childhood and the spirit of living in the moment. Recording those summertime moments can be a fun and very rewarding project for the whole family.

I've compiled a "Summer Photo Bucket List" with 30 prompts and 16 photography tips to give you a little jump start on recording your summer memories!

Those photography tips were inspired by the questions I'm most frequently asked. Play with these tips, allow yourself make mistakes, but most of all have fun as you are here to make some life long memories with your children!

Your summer bucket list is perfect as an actual checklist. You can print it on to white card stock and stick it on your fridge, or tuck it in your pocket.  Don't forget to share your favorite summer shots from the list and post your photos on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #hellosummerstories.



There’s something so powerful about holding your memories in your hand. Get an inside look at how I bring my vision to life with my Ebook "Bringing Your Vision to Life: Emotive Portraits from Shoot to Print". You’ll learn how I set my scenes, capture the images and edit with the printed photograph in mind.
Throughout the Breakout, I share my process for creating emotive portraits, shooting with Lensbaby lenses, understanding and using color management, as well as making shooting and post-production decisions. I even walk you through my process for choosing a suitable paper for the finished print, whether you are using a custom printer or an online printing service.
