Award-winning photography by Ditta Van Gent

Very nice to meet you. I am Ditta a documentary wedding & family photographer based in Amersfoort | The Netherlands. Tell me, what keeps your memories of the past clear? Scents, colors? In any case, photos from your childhood make the memory easier to recall. I would like to show you the value of the little daily moments. That one hug, or how your child looks at you and of course the patterns that you have together. Every day passes with countless moments like this. And honest? You will think, I should not forget this, but unforunatly you will. How wonderful would it be to look through these photos together in 10 years' time and hear your children shouting "oh yes we always played there"! And before you know it, the stories and memories will come. Every picture tells a story. Your story.

The Documentary Family Awards is an international competition in search of the insightful and meaningful ways that documentary photographers explore the interpretation of family.
