About me

There was a moment something inside of me clicked and I knew: I love photographing people. Show me a beautiful landscape, an impressive bridge, a field of gorgeous flowers and I’ll start imagining the perfect place to position a person in the image I want to create.

It’s no wonder that when I decided to pursue my passion for photography, I knew that I could only do it if it meant I would be able to photograph people.

In many ways, my love for photography can be traced back to 2006 when l moved from the United States to the Netherlands.

Far away from my family, I recognize how important it is to have beautiful photographs of the people who are most dear to me. In fact, my first models were my nieces whom I would photograph every chance I got on my trips back to the U.S.

Now their gorgeous faces decorate my home alongside photos of my own children, reminders of the journey I have taken to get to where I am now.

After I had the opportunity to photograph a wedding for a colleague in 2012, I knew I had to make it official. In January 2013 Five Miles Photography was born.

Since then, I have photographed hundreds of people, captured hundreds of moments and memories, each precious and unique. And I’ve realized that the greatest gift I can give my clients is a tangible memory to help them hold onto this wonderful period in their lives. A memory of a moment in which they took a step back and made time stand still.

Does my photographic style appeal to you? Are you ready to have beautiful photographs to display in your home?

Please get in touch with me. I’d be delighted to photograph the important moments in your life.
