BEFORE & AFTER
I know what you’re thinking- “These women are gorgeous. They’re probably models who walk down the runway every other weekend. They aren’t just the average everyday-women that you see at your local supermarket.”
Well, you’re actually half right/half wrong. These women ARE completely gorgeous. That’s a fact!
BUT THESE ARE 100% EVERYDAY WOMEN. THESE ARE WIVES,
MOTHERS, GRANDMOTHERS AND SO MUCH MORE!
These strong women are your local mums, nurses, lawyers, doctors, teachers, etc; these are everyday women who decided to treat themselves to so much more than just a manicure or massage.

ARE YOU READY FOR YOUR
OWN MAKE OVER?
PORTRAIT ARTIST, AUTHOR, STUDIO OWNER, MUM
I am a full-time portrait photographer working from my studio in Altona, Melbourne’s west. I have over 15 years’ experience telling stories through photography, translating those experiences into gallery-style artwork, and have established my book imprint and art brand, Van Jude. I originate from The Netherlands, where I also had a thriving photography studio.
My favourite part of the day is spending time with my two beautiful boys, friends and snuggling with our cats. The beach and smelling the salty air makes my heart sing.
To me, there is nothing more rewarding than making my clients feel as gorgeous as they really are. I look forward to capturing your unique story.
The Photo Studio
Our portrait studio is light, inviting, and will make you feel at ease. We have many beautiful collections of artwork on display, to help you imagine how your own collection will come to life in your home.
Recently we moved from a large commercial studio into our current luxurious and cosy home studio in Altona, Melbourne. The move was made for our clients and their fur babies; to capture portraits in a more welcoming and relaxed environment.
Our clients travel to us from all over Australia because of our personalised approach to understanding the unique story and personalities behind the portraits, which leads to stunning gallery style artwork.
There is ample free parking.
