NEW!!! Photography & Brand Building Training


I DID IT, I created a complete Training program!

There is just one but… It is in DUTCH and I will give the training sessions Live here in Holland on a really beautiful location in Amsterdam! So I will, Just this once, continue my story in DUTCH. I hope you understand. 

 


Oke dan! Zo, Zo trots op wat we hebben klaar staan!

Juist! Je hebt het goed gehoord! Ik ga nu na een break van 4 jaar het weer oppikken! Trainingen, workshops geven, en coaching  in Fotografie en Brand building. 

Waarom? Omdat ik het mis! Ik loop er nu al ruim een jaar mee in de rondte, maar deze zomer tijdens onze roadtrip door europa kon ik er niet meer omheen, ik MOET dit weer gaan doen. Ik vind het zo leuk om iets uit te leggen en de muntjes horen vallen. Om te zien hoe die nieuwe kennis opgepakt word en er mooie dingen gecreëerd worden, doelen worden gehaald, vooruitgang word geboekt.
En daar doe ik het voor! Dat gevoel iets bijgedragen te hebben aan de dromen en passies van een ander. Hoe tof is dat!

Dus sind ik terug ben heb ik hieraan gewerkt. Eerst de inhoud van de lesstof. Die moest geupdate worden. Er is een hoop hetzelfde gebleven, maar er is ook een hoop veranderd… Aanvullen, herschrijven, aanpassen, en kneden tot iets nieuws.

Ditmaal niet voor groepen van 25 personen… nee, kleine groepjes van max 10 deelnemers. Alle aandacht, alle tijd, een stukje klassikaal en een stukje persoonlijke begeleiding. Een deel Theorie, een deel praktijk. 

Dat is hoe we het anno 2019 gaan doen en ik heb er zin in!

 

17 november knallen we de eerste trainingsdag erin!

Neem snel een kijkje op het Fotografie en Brandbuilding Trainingen deel van deze website voor meer info

Wieweet zie ik je binnenkort op een van mijn Trainingsdagen!

Bathtime goals

We don’t wash our kids…

Our bathtime ritual.
We made a video about our thoughts on getting our Baby and kids “clean”.

When you explore, you tend to get dirty! But that doesn’t mean we necessarily want to get cleanBecauseouse whenever we get a bit crunchy of all the playing, we just play some more in the tub!

It you think we take a bath to get clean… think again.
Kids don’t care about getting clean!
Kids just want to have more adventures!
Climbing mountains of foam, You can be a superhero with superpowers,
You can make it snow, Play hide and seek, Explore, 
You can be a hairdresser or make high fashion

And the getting clean part… oh, that just happens. Just like the getting dirty again thing. But who has time to think of those kinds of things, when there is so much having fun to do.

So do you wash your kids? or do you just let them PLAY some more!?  

We want to thank our partner Naïf baby for supporting us and making it possible for us to keep producing our video’s, vlogs and blogs. It’s because of these kind partnerships we get to do what we love most:
Being creative and sharing our stories and Images.

And Thank you for watching our adventures, blogs, and videos! Your interest in our adventures is what’s giving us the biggest motivation to keep on producing our content!
And we love you for it!
Love,

  Jolanda, Michiel,
Miley Haley & Quinn

VIDEO – Getting My MOM Tatoo

Baby name MOMMY Tattoo

I got my first tattoo a while back and I wrote a BLOGPOST about it!
Now I’ve also made a video of my experience. Check it out and don’t forget to subscribe on my YT channel!

So in this video, you will see me getting my first tattoo! 7 Years ago I came up with the idea of putting all my baby’s names on my forearm in one long stretched line. I’m not someone who gets a tattoo in an impulse, and Maybe we would get more kids in the future, and I wanted to include all of my baby’s names in it… I spend a long time designing a tattoo that was minimalistic and had exactly the look that I had in mind. Like practicing an autograph, The name tattoo design had to have the perfect flow and casual hand-drawn feel to it. 

So now 7 years later with 3 kids in total, I have my mom tattoo with all the names of my kids! It only took 20 minutes and didn’t hurt at all!
—-Miley—Haley—Quinn—  Just Perfect!
And The end result is exactly how I hoped it would be!

I really really love my first tattoo! Happy as can be, with my hand-drawn tattoo line design perfected over the past 7 years. Perfectly put on my arm by Manon from Le Nou Tattoo. 

So once more:  Thanks, Michiel for making the reservation and tanks mom for sponsoring half of it for my B-day! To my three baby girls, Miley, Haley & Quinn, I love you forever, just like this tattoo will be on my arm! 

Would you ever get a dad/  mommy tattoo, name tattoo or do you already have one!? What do you think of mine!? Let me know what you think in the comment section of the video here or on Youtube!

 

Love,

Getting a greener home

Energy friendly home
Living in a small home of only 50 square meters (=538 square feet) is one of the choices we’ve made to be more sustainable as a family. But because this is a home build in 1952, the Insolation was not what we wanted it to be. So in the last couple of years, we made some big steps in improving the insolation of our home.

For instance, we got double glazing in our windows in 2014, we insolated the roof back in 2017 (watch this dutch vlog from back then), and Insolated the crawling space under our home in 2018 (see this Englisch vlog), and we have LED lighting in our home.

This whole process is really expensive so we are taking one step at the time and every single change is taking us a little bit closer to our eco-friendly home dream.

Next steps we hope to take very soon:
-Insolating the double brick outside walls.
-Energy management system to track how much we use.
-Solar panels.
-Floor insolation.
-Heat pump hybrid system. (And Floor heating to make it more effective)

Because we are just a bunch of hippies on an eco-friendly mission Eneco asked if we were interested in a collab with them. So we did! We visited another family who is a few steps ahead of us and already has a lot of the eco-friendly solutions we are dreaming of in their home! Oh my! We are loving it!

And they had such a great family with two lovely little boys and a playful dog. We had a great time with them.
We were invited to stay for dinner so we did! Tiny little bummer to see all those throw-away plastic take-out containers on the table, but I guess our eco-crazy hippie standard is next level for most people. And they were certainly more energy-friendly than us! We all do what we can. baby steps.  So we all enjoyed the food and the lovely company.

Eneco made a lovely video of our visit! (Sorry, it’s only in dutch) You can check it out down here:

We went back home feeling inspired! Hopefully some day in the near future we get to have that energy-green home we are dreaming of. Until then I’m just making it greener with all of my plants!

Love,
  Jolanda, Michiel,
Miley Haley & Quinn

Oh, and p.s. Thanks for the levely flowers Eneco! So thoughtfull love it!

A little throwback to ‘Zeeland’

A little throwback to ‘Zeeland’

In this video we have a little trowback to the time the 5 of us were only 4! We made a little roadtrip to ‘Zeeland’ in the Netherlands and wandered the fields.

At the time (2015) when we filmed these shots and after we arrived back home we found out we had a difficult and emotional year ahead of us, so we totally forgot about all the footage we shot.

Looking back at that year it went by so fast and everything ended well. Almost 4 years later we found the footage again and it feels like a little time capsule we opened up.
So now we edited it into this little throwback video, we hope you enjoy it.
