Welcome to my page, my name is Boukje and I'm an enthusiastic and passionate pet photographer. I really enjoy to create a dreamy image, and love to play with the light and match beautiful colours in the photograph. Dogs and horses have played a big role in my life ever since I was a little girl. Those animals stole my heart from the beginning and working with them makes me really happy and blessed. I work with a lot of patience and kindness to create the most stunning results.

I work with my NikonZ7II, and mostly I use my sigma Art 135mm f1.8. Sometimes I like tot use my 35mm f1.4, 85mm f1.8 and 70-200mm f2.8 as well, depending on the situation, model, idea and location.

Winning photos

Back in October 2023, I went on this awesome horse photography trip to Switzerland. We went to a surprise location on a Wednesday morning... nobody knew where we were going and why we had to set the alarm so early.... like 04:30 am!

Arriving at the location, we saw the sun coming up behind a beautiful large field of purple flowers, it was so huge you couldn't even see it's end. It was just like a fairytale, and the models were so good and stunning as well. An experience I will never forget!

Back in October 2023, I went on this awesome horse photography trip to Switzerland. On the last day of our trip we went to Manuela, who lives at a beautiful place with her horses. You can see the mountains from the meadows. She really wanted some photos with her horses and her weddingdress. And so we took them... with this stunning view as our scenery. Really love this moment I captured of her and her lovely animals.

On a really cold day last January I had a clientshoot with Marjan and her handsome shepherds Daisy and Lizzy. I saw this beautiful spot in one of my favorite forrests, with beautiful backlight coming through the trees. It was cold, but we had a stunning sunrise and lovely quiet morning with also some frosty elements. This is definitely one of my favorite duo photos of dogs.

Rafi the Saluki is one of the dog breeds that was on my bucket-list for a long time. Finally I found a perfect model like him for my dog photography workshop, and he did so great. He fits beautifully in the urban area where we were shooting that day. Thankful for your loyalty and kindness handsome Rafi!

Pomsky Lilly (left) and Shiba Inu Nayla (right) were two absolutely stunning models during one of my dog photography workshops. Their fur colour matches perfect together. Short after this shot, the two little rascals thought it would be funny to run around like loonatics. Very much fun to see, luckily we were able to get them back for some more beautiful shots.

This sweet labrador called Jazzle, unfortunately she is sick and we don't know how much longer she will be with her owners. But nevertheless she's still a hyper and happy dog who loves to crash into creeks during this photoshoot, lol. This portrait is probably one of my favorites I've ever made during a clientshoot.

Another urban photo, but this one I took at a castle ruin near Eindhoven. Border Collie Zorah is such a pretty dog model, and she likes to show how pretty she is in front of the camera. This castle also has some great and unique spots for dog photography, and I've also took some horses up there for beautiful photoshoots.

Urban dog photography is something fun and trending at the moment. It's cool to discover how many simple city or town spots can be the most stunning decor for dog photography. This one I took in a small and cute town in the south of the Netherlands with my own Hungarian Vizsla called 'Nero'. The light was stunning this morning, despite the rain and cloudy sky. I think this is one of my favorite spots in the area.

94th Collection

I took this photo a couple of years ago. It was a cold rainy December day, I got bored and wanted to do some photoshoots since it had been a while due to the bad weather of the past couple of months. The mare in the photo is called Kuwerna, she is absolutely one of the best and most friendly models I've ever worked with. It happened in a split second, but I saw her looking over her back right into my camera. I took the shot and got it. I love the curves and how the background matches her manes.

93rd Collection

This photo is probably one of my favorite dog photos. I took it during one of my own workshop days, and Skip the Australian Shepherd is such a perfect model. Her fur matches perfect with the scenery, the photoshoots took place at a castle ruin near my hometown. Love the results of this perfect evening.

93rd Collection

This year in October, I went on a photography trip to Switzerland. A trip that was on my bucket-list for a long time, and finally after 2 years of waiting was actually going to happen. We went to the most amazing places and shot the best models we could ever wish for! On this photo you see Manuela with her mustang that she trains all by herself. It's such a special and above all very sweet horse. The forest where we were shooting was absolutely stunning and fairytalish because of the beautiful ivy growing around the trees. We had an amazing evening in this amazing part of Switzerland.

On a 10 minute car drive away from my home, there's this forest where I like to take walks with my dog. Every October I see the most beautiful autumn transformation I've ever seen in the Netherlands, with so many bright yellow and orange tones. I decided I wanted to organize a workshop for dog photography right here on this spot. You wouldn't think the colours on the photo are real, but it is! Luckily I had 5 other photographers who booked the workshop and can confirm that I'm telling the truth haha. It's one of my favorite places and times of the year to make stunning photos.

This year in October, I went on a photography trip to Switzerland. A trip that was on my bucket-list for a long time, and finally after 2 years of waiting was actually going to happen. We went to the most amazing places and shot the best models we could ever wish for! On this photo you see Anita and her beautiful white fairytale pony Dolly, who lives with her horses in-between the mountains. We Dutchies couldn't believe what we saw... a horseranch in the middle of the mountains?! How is that even possible! But it seemed to fit perfect for Anita and her family.

92nd Collection

I wanted to try a different angle from what I'm used to shoot from. The bending of the neck and the beautiful light on it captured my eye, so I quickly took some shots and it worked out stunning! I really love photos with horses bending their neck to show more shape and curves in the image.

I really love this Arabian vibe photo, I made it on a rainy and windy day in February. The horse and his owner didn't care the typical Dutch weather during winter, together they brighten up the whole photoshoot.

These cute toddlers loved to model with their ponies during one of my heather workshops. They all started riding their ponies when they were just three years old. Their parents also ride horses and they do everything they can to give their three little miracles the best childhood they could ever wish for. I might be a little bit jealous lol.

This is my own dog, a Hungarian Vizsla called Nero. I've trained him a lot in the first two years, started at the first day he joined our family. He loves to go for a long walk through the forests, especially when he needs to pose on a platform. It's like he almost knows he's too hot to handle for my camera.
