PaSSaR: Nektar

I love how always changing my job is.

Mystical creatures? With wings? And more cool stuff? almost 5 meters high? ALRIGHT!

The amazing people of PaSSaR (being Petro and Iris) make many cool performing arts acts. They are hard to describe in one (or two, three..) sentences as they do so much but they are seriously amazing! Do check out their website (click) after you’re done looking at the photos we took!

The act we photographed is called Nektar. These amazing ladies are the (almost) complete group that will perform. There will be an aerial artist added later on! SO cool!

As you all know I’m pretty short, so I was balancing on a scaffolding while these ladies were quite a way away from me!

This is Karin. Doesn’t it look like she has a halo above her head? I love how perfectly balanced this is!

Sorry I’m just going to post a lot of pics hah. How much fun is this?

This is Iris (the non winged version of her). She is also a kickass dancer!

Not only did I make photos of Nektar. I also took some foto’s of Zeb. Oh and I learned a new word, cause Zeb is a contact juggler!

I didn’t even know what contact juggling was before I saw him actually do it. It’s hard to explain but I almost looks like someone is photoshopping him while he’s doing it. Amazing. Zeb is also part of PaSSaR performing arts acts.

Lieke (The Brave)

A few weeks back I received a phonecall by Anke, she told me about her friend Lieke. Lieke just fought her way through chemo therapy and was on the verge of kicking breast cancers butt. To finish her treatment she has to undergo surgery to remove her breasts. Anke asked me if I would perhaps make some photos of Lieke.

I didn’t think twice and said yes. Ofcourse. If I could do anything that would slightly help her: yes. And yes again. I started looking for a MUA (make up artist) that felt the same way so we could make the photoshoot as much fun as possible for her. I found Manon Morsch who said yes just as quickly as I did.

Lieke came over to my house where I improvised a little home studio. With lots of tea, cookies and other good stuff we had a wonderful day. Manon did an amazing job and made Lieke even more stunning than she already is.

See what I mean? Gorgeous girl!

And to finish, one of Lieke’s favorites:

What a stunning lady!

After receiving her photos Lieke was very glad to have done the photoshoot, and ofcourse for having the photos as well. After talking to her about this, we figured maybe more women in her position would want to have photos like this, but don’t know where to look, or find it hard to just approach a photographer. Something I can absolutely relate to being a woman.

I think it would be a very good thing if this was more easy to find (when fighting cancer you’ll have a lot of other things on your mind obviously). I’ll be thinking about ways to maybe start, or add to an existing foundation so this can be something all women battling breast cancer at least have heard about. And in an ideal situation, can all have amazing pictures of how gorgeous they are.

If you have any ideas, suggestions, tips, or want to help or to brainstorm about this with me. Please feel free to send me an email at info@meginzondervan.nl or facebook me or anything you’d like :)

ps obviously I can’t and won’t post the entire shoot, you know, girls privacy and all that :)
