Thank you so much for stopping by, my name is Mieke. I was born in the Netherlands and grew up split between the Netherlands, France and England. Moving around as a child was an adventure and I am so very grateful for everything these moves have brought me and taught me.
While living in England, I was fortunate to attend a high school with an amazing fine arts program where I was introduced to the beauty of photography. I soon realized I loved photographing people & nature the most.
I went on to study Hospitality Management and worked for Hyatt, Starwood & Luxury Boutique Hotels for 15 years in the United States & the Caribbean. I truly love the hospitality industry and I feel lucky to have found a career that suits my natural skills so well.
At some point the lingering question “what if I had pursued photography” had to be answered and I combined my passion for photography, people & service and started Mieke Snepvangers Photography.
Today, I enjoy photographing weddings, children, motherhood & mothers to be sessions. Each session is unique and the connections are as unique as the people. I intrinsically approach photography with a focus on capturing genuine moments, letting them unfold and capturing them as well as all the moments in between. I love to work with medium format film for its simple and raw beauty!
So that’s me, with my combined English (mostly because of how I pronounce “water”)American, French & Dutch accent, I would love to hear from you and listen to your story.
I have recently relocated to The Netherlands from Los Angeles. I am available for travel locally and in Europe.
