Of course I will also introduce myself! My name is Sophie Verstappen and I am 36 years old. Since about 10 years I live together with my boyfriend Vincent in Eindhoven. We have a daughter of 4 years old, Sara. My father gave me my first camera when I was a little girl. Not knowing that this would later become my biggest passion. I went on to study graphic design. When I finished that, I went to study photography at Kunstacademie St. Joost. During and after my studies I had several jobs in the graphic and photographic field. I worked as a product photographer, as a DTP designer and as an employee in a photo store where I also took passport photos of both children and adults.
No good pictures
Just after the birth of Sara, I was too weak to take good photos of Sara. Only afterwards I regretted it: after all, I couldn’t turn back time. That’s where the idea for Sophie Babyfotografie was born. I had always loved children, but had never known what I wanted to do with that. And suddenly I had the answer: I thought it would be fun to do beautiful Newbornshoots and style them myself.
Gradually, I decided to take some newborn and baby photography workshops to learn how to fill my portfolio. Since July 2022 I have my first photo studio in Eindhoven. The best decision I’ve ever made 🙂 Right now I fill the weeks with newborn-, baby- and cakesmash shoots. Next thing to do is to start up the Pregnancy portfolio. This portfolio will probably come online later this year. It’s good to know that Sophie Babyfotografie is an expat friendly company: a lot of my shoots are done in English. So communication in English is no problem at all ❤️
As a professional photographer, I have been providing posed newborn and baby shoots with love and joy for about 3 years. My style is colorful and timeless. It is my passion to provide you with beautiful, professional photos for a lasting memory of the newborn or baby period. It is my passion to provide you with beautiful photographs for a lasting memory of the newborn or baby period. Whether that is through an album or through something beautiful for on the wall. It’s up to you, I will be there to advise you.
Rock and metal
During the post-production of the newborn, baby and cakesmash shoots I like to listen to rock and metal 🙂 What else do I like to do when I’m not working in the studio? I love movies and easily watch a movie or three a week. I have also enjoyed doing strength training for over 10 years. In addition, I am in dance class: jazz. I also enjoy reading and traveling. We have been to Thailand, China, India, America, Indonesia and Sri Lanka. We want to pick this up again when Sara is a little older.
