Award-winning photography by Sandra Stokmans

I’m Sandra a documentary family and business photographer based in the Netherlands (Utrecht area, near Amsterdam), and will fly anywhere, btw ? . I love the real honest everyday moments, happy moments, sad moments. Life is all about the daily moments! Your traditions, customs and routines. I love to portray families in any composition or stage of their lives. I love the sincerity, spontaneity, openness and silliness of children. Mom’s tenderness, horsing around with dad, grandma’s love, grandpa’s jokes… It’s beautiful to watch, and even better to capture. I want to give tangible visual memories of those moments that evoke emotion and can be relived with pride and pleasure forever. Real is Perfect!

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