Award-winning photography by Adriëlle de Voogd

My name is Adriëlle de Voogd and I live in Middelburg (The Netherlands) which is a small city close to the sea. I’ve been married 12 years ago with the man of my dreams and we’ve 2 kids: Sem (10) and Noah (8). I think 90% of the pictures you see on my social media are pictures of these two little monsters, and I lóve them! I only take pictures in black and white over the last 6 years, because then I can express myself the best. Also in black and white the use of light is very important and so magical, and thats why I’m addicted to black and white ánd the use of natural light.
