Sometimes you meet people and you just click. Sophie and I has been chatting back and forth for quiet some time regarding a maternity session. Her and her husband, Eelco, are expecting in January. I could tell Sophie and I would click just via our messages. She has the wonderful energy about her. We arranged a date and time, close to their home, on what turned out to be a frosty, foggy and very cold, yet gorgeous day.
I met Sophie and Eelco at their home and we chatted, over tea, for an hour about life. Eelco has that same energy as Sophie! These two are so in love and radiate when speaking about each other. It was so sweet to watch. They met at business school, in England where Sophie is from, and she moved here over a year ago to settle into Dutch life. Eelco is originally from Utrecht and they chose to call Rotterdam home. They love travel, my kind of people, and we chatted about all of the places we have been and would like to see for our children to experience. Sophie and Eelco were married a few months ago in the U.K. in, what looked like, an absolutely stunning ceremony. Sophie was, and is, radiant! Just the most gorgeous pregnant gal ever! They came back from there honeymoon and are ready for their greatest adventure yet, parenthood.
We headed to a nearby park and navigated around our chosen spots. We were freezing but it was totally worth it! I loved the fog and frost anddd the park was super quiet. Sophie and Eelco's love for each other, and that sweet babe, shines through in these images and this is, hands on my heart, one of my favorite sessions to date. Following our session we headed back to their place to warm up over tea and some very British sweets, seriously my kind of people haha. Sophie and Eelco, thank you so much for welcoming me into your home and choosing me to capture such a special and incredible moment in your lives. You are going to be amazing parents! Enjoy and Happy Holidays xo
