Naomi van der Kraan (KnowMe Fotografie)

Creating images that are unique and authentic is close to Naomi van der Kraan’s heart. “I get my inspiration from everyday life,” she says. “The light around me, the emotions on a wedding day, the colors that catch my attention…even a drop of water on a leaf can be my inspiration. I try not to get my inspiration from the wedding business so I can stay pure and authentic in my approach.” She also loves her pictures dark, mysterious and artistic, but at the same time she is also drawn to elegance, serenity and beauty. “I love to play with light and capture emotion and connection. I love to get close to the heart of people.”
