Meet Mariska in Ghent

My childhood in the most Northern part of the Dutch countryside influenced me to be an honest and down to earth person. However, my years of traveling around the world, marrying my (French) other half and immersing myself in the romance of French lifestyle made me into this uncommon mix, perfect for multicultural life in Belgium. I am a portrait and love story photographer who loves to work with natural light. I get butterflies in my stomach when I capture those unique moments between the people in front of my lens. I pride myself on capturing those who like to do things a little bit different - with a little touch of nostalgia. I love old music, vintage clothing, listening to records and writing letters.. This love for the good old days has an influence on how I work and how I edit my photographs.

    Favourite Place to Shoot: The old center of the city, where you can find most historical highlights. It is all very walkable and everywhere you turn, something magical awaits to be discovered.

Three Things

  1. I traveled around the world for eight years. That of course needs to be financed, so I worked in many places as a bartender/ mixologist.
  2. In my free time I love to play board games, read, have a drink with friends, scuba-dive and talk to every dog I cross in the streets!
  3. One thing I definitely can't live without is pizza.
