A Day In My Life

Recently, we had the honour of welcoming Gonda Meurs into our house. She is an award winning photographer who takes documentary style pictures that tell real stories (Check out her website). She stayed with us during an entire day from 8AM until 8PM to take pictures, capturing ‘A Day In My Life’. Our days are filled with joy, laughter and love, but with five kids it is inevitable to have moments of crying and jelling as well. Gonda did an incredible job capturing all of these moments. We are extremely pleased with the result, which provides a genuine memory of a very hectic but precious time in our lives. I am happy to share a selection of this amazing photoshoot with you!
