Yael Konings

Netherlands

Mom of 3 wild sons and especially a jack-of-all-trades who doesn't want to do just one thing in life, and sometimes makes it quite difficult for herself.
Someone who knows the uncertainties of life, but also motherhood and especially wants to empower women and show how beautiful we are.
Some might describe me as searching, and actually I'm totally fine with that. Isn't life meant to keep learning, experimenting and discovering forever?

“It's one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it's another thing to make a portrait of who they are.”
—Paul Caponigro

This quote sums up why I do what I do; raw, pure, powerful and loving photography of real moments. Unposed, in the moment, capturing someone's sparkle. I don't photograph people, but souls. That's why you generally don't see a time limit on my shoots, I take the time necessary to ensure that you can land and sink into your own energy. So that you really get the feeling that it is not a stranger looking through a lens, but a trusted friend. So I'm not going to tell you to hold your hand somewhere, turn your face, or look at the camera.
Instead, I will move around you as invisibly as possible, my feet are my zoom function, and I will especially encourage you to play, laugh, run, dance with each other as you normally do. Act as if nobody's watching.
