I’m Luna – Photographer, Traveler, Foodie, Environmentalist and a Passionate Lover of Life.
Having a photographer for a mother I grew up with a camera in my hand. I feel blessed to have been mentored by some amazing photographers! Portrait photography sparks the most enthusiasm in me – I love the challenge of having human beings in front of my camera, with all their joy and passion, feelings of struggle and insecurities.
The most fascinating photographers to me are Sebastião Salgado, Gordon Parks and Annie Leibovitz.
When I occasionally put down the camera you’ll find me in the kitchen, creating a raw vegan desert and other delicious healthy food. Combining both enjoying food – or life in general – and sustainability is a very important issue to me that I think about a lot.
Meeting new people from all over the world has always inspired me, personally as well as creatively and professionally. I crave seeing the world and getting in touch with foreign cultures. And connecting with people through my camera is a gift I am deeply grateful for.
From 11 October 2018 on, I’ll be traveling in South East Asia. See my blog for my recent photos and thoughts…
“Luna takes beautiful photos with excellent composition and perspective and captures a wonderful atmosphere despite the difficult light conditions outside. It was immediately apparent that Luna has been taught by professionals. I was amazed how many good and varied pictures she took in such a short time! Now I have some fantastic images for my on and off line advertising.
Normally I am not comfortable being photographed, yet with her I was very relaxed and comfortable. She motivated me well, giving clear directions and yet still allowing enough space for something new and fresh to develop. It was really good fun working with her and the post-shoot communication was clear and uncomplicated. I would hire Luna again without hesitation!”

“My photo shoot with Luna was an amazing experience!
I never felt myself to be photogenic in the slightest, I was always camera shy. However, Luna made me feel comfortable so that I relaxed entirely, allowing for beautiful natural photos that captured my personality.
Luna is a talented photographer who allows for your own creativity to come through while facilitating with skill. Her deep kindness makes you instantly feel at home.The whole shoot was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
I would highly recommend Luna for a photo shoot as you will come away with very pleasing results. She brings out the best in you, that is for sure.”

“Receiving a photo shoot from Luna was a really enjoyable and satisfying experience. I don’t normally feel that comfortable in front of a camera, but I was able to deeply relax with her… I could really trust her clear yet sensitive directions and her obvious photographic skill. I’m really happy with the photos!”
Leigh Tolson, Conscious Dance DJ and Group Facilitator
“Working with Luna, both in front of, and behind the camera, is truly an exhilarating experience. I’ve known Luna for a long time and a few years ago we discovered our shared love for photography.
Every time we met she had new ideas for photos or even entire photo sessions. I was very shy in the beginning but Luna kept encouraging me without ever pushing too far or making me feel uncomfortable. Now, five years later I can proudly say that it is because of her that I feel more self-confident, whether there is a camera to stand in front of or not.
I would warmly recommend Luna as a photographer and I am really looking forward to future photo sessions with her. Luna is someone that I will never stop learning from.”
