As a mother of two very young children, I haven’t slept a whole night through for a couple of years. Looking at their faces in the moonlight when getting up to comfort them in the night, I created in my mind a vision of a child’s dreamland. That inspired me to create magical childhood images.
Like many mothers, I got interested in photography when my children were born. But because I was working full-time as an architect, I had only evenings and weekends to photograph the children and nights to edit the photos. So the dark nighttime, dreamy images came naturally. The visions were coming when half sleeping, half awake, I was putting my kids back to bed. Not the exact scenes but more a feeling or an atmosphere I wanted to capture.
Not only dark nights but also animated movies for children such as “Polar Express” or Pixar “La Luna” were the source of inspiration for my pictures. In the atmosphere of magic and wonder, I found my way of approaching photography.
I started creating magical images of my children’s childhood eight years ago with a head full of ideas and an empty pocket. I spent all my savings to buy an affordable camera and started using analog lenses my parents used with their Zenit.
With time and a lot of hard work, I managed to upgrade my skills and equipment.
