Hello gorgeous

The world is full of beautiful people!
But what do you hear around you?
‘oh, I’m not that pretty’,
‘I don’t like my picture being taken’,
‘I need to first lose a little more weight’,
‘I have a double chin’ …
Most people just see their negative sides and blow them up. And that is such as pity because you know what? Ugly people don’t exist.

Everybody is beautiful!

That is what I love about my work – seeing your beauty and capturing it, calmly and quietly.

Even your bent nose.
Even your straw hair.


It is not what you look like,
but how you look at yourself
and the world that
shows your beauty.

Positivity creates beauty

Strengthen your focus.

If you focus on the positive, you will attract positivity. Positive people and positive happenings. And this is exactly the same for photos. They make people aware of how beautiful they are. This is what I want to show with my photography.

Perfection does not exist – luckily. I love people and and see it as is my mission as a photographer to:

Capture their beauty, their individuality and show them what I see through my camera.


Of course being photographed can be scary. It can be incredibly intimate. I stand in front of you with an enormous camera, and in the studio you are in the spotlight – literally!

But I will make sure that you are feeling relaxed and open when I take photos. We will make sure that you are feeling comfortable. And you will be proud of your beautiful photos!

Love yourself and others

Love yourself and others

It makes no difference to me if the photos will be used for business purposes or for private use. A person is a person. And people generally work with people. Not with numbers or companies. So it is also important to show your face clearly.

Each day is another opportunity to look at things more positively. You are beautiful and should be seen!

Just look at all the beautiful people who have already been photographed.

Joyce van der Stad

Joyce van der Stad

“To make a long story short, you go, you’re a bit apprehensive, you have your limits and your wishes.

And then without even noticing, all these slip away as Martine welcomes you with ease. She respects your wishes and before you know it you are laughing. And the camera clicks away. The result is a wonderful portrait. You leave Martine happier than when you came, that’s for sure.”

Joyce van der Stad – Goede Sier, Haarlem – August 2014

“When we heard that we had to do a photo shoot, all three of us thought ‘Do we really have to?’ You know what it’s like when you see yourself on the photo – you’re not really thrilled! Most of the time you have your mouth open or your eyes half closed, or that pimple or wrinkle stands out. As we are not the super model Doutzen Kroes, we were not too enthusiastic to say the least.

But on the way to The Hague, all of us dressed top to bottom in white, our mood started to change. We felt like we were going to a fancy dress party and we wanted to have some fun! Martine welcomed us warmly and her professional demeanour put us at ease straightaway.

Martine took wonderful photos, all of us individually and as a group. We were completely comfortable and it was easy to rustle up a smile. Even the props that Martine had made were fun and helped us relax. During the shoot, we regularly had a peek at the photos to check if they would pass and this helped us become more and more enthusiastic.

We spent a lovely afternoon at Martine’s and look back at a very pleasant experience.”

“I arrived at Martine’s studio with a bag full of clothes. She already had plenty of ideas of how she could best photo me, but she first took the time with me and only after that turned to her camera.

Martine made suggestions about my clothing and during the lengthy shoot gave me lots of exercises which ensured that I came across as relaxed on the photos. The results were great – a series of photos, both in the studio and outside, in which I completely recognise myself.”

Ricardo Bravenboer – Brave Brands, The Hague – August 2014

“Martine is a creative, involved and very talented photographer. She did wonders by taking a fabulous profile photo for my work, and by taking my wedding photos.

Martine knows how to get the best out of you in a very relaxed way so that the photos look really great. I would definitely work with Martine Sollie again.”

Raymond Wensing – FWA Drukwerk, Zoetermeer – July 2014

“I went to Martine in May 2012 for a portrait photo. She listens closely to what you want, makes suggestions and manages to put you at ease very quickly – luckily because a photo shoot is a bit scary!

I was very impressed with the relaxed atmosphere, her professionalism and the end result: what lovely photos!”

Profile picture day 16th of June

It is important to dare to show yourself, and this is certainly the case for business profile photos. People do business with people, so you want a good photo of yourself on your LinkedIn, facebook and Twitter pages rather than your logo, your dog or yourself with a pair of sunglasses.

That is why on the 16th of June I have a Profile Picture day!


On that day my studio is open grom 13:30-17:30 so you can have professional portraits taken for use on social media etc.

Only on the 16th of June: Portrait pictures from € 197,- for €100,- ex. tax.



The shoot will take about half an hour of your time. You will receive three digital pictures on high resolution.

There is room for a maximum of six persons that day, so sign up now to be assured of a spot!

Photobiography: a multimedia biography

Every life is unique. Every life is a collection of inspiration, wisdom and experience.

What wisdom, collected over your life, do you want to pass on? Which events in your life do you want to capture? Did something happen that is so important to you that you do not want it to get lost?

Your life is a chance for others to learn, it is a tribute and a wonderful experience. In any case, it is an opportunity for your family and friends, or perhaps everyone, to gain new understandings.

Every life is a story. Let us preserve your story for your descendants.

A Photobiography is the story of a life in words, images and sound. The story contains wonderful photos and your life history. The Photobiography can even have sound files, videos and photos from the past.

Together, these elements create a Photobiography of your life’s story and what you want to share of your life with others. You decide the tone of the story and what it will contain. A Photobiography will last for a very long time and is very personal.

You can make a Photobiography of yourself, or give one as a gift to celebrate an important event like a birthday, anniversary or retirement.

Tha Company photo shoot

The saying ‘an image says more than a thousand words’ is not a cliché. The use of images is essential for your company.

You will be foundand remembered more easily, and the amount of business will increase. However, this only applies to good photos. And I believe that personal images are more effective than stock photos.

The Company photo shoot can provide you with just these images.

What does it entail:
We will look at your company, what you want to show and what type of images match this. We then do the shoot which includes 1 or 2 people in the studio or on location. Transport within a radius of 20 km from the studio in The Hague is included.

The shoot lasts about 1 to 2 hours, during which you may change clothes. The length of the shoot naturally depends on the company, the people and what is required.

You will receive 10-30 high resolution digital photos. The preparation, basic photo editing and materials are included in the price. You may use the photos to promote your company on social media, your website, in printed materials and on business cards.

Please contact me for information if the shoot involves more than 2 persons.

The Wedding photo shoot

One of the best days of your life, in which every minute is set in scene. And of course you want to have every moment captured.

Apart from the ceremony, the cake, the dress, the guests, the food and so on – and all the emotions that are part of these – there are also the antics of children behind the scenes, the suit of the brother-in-law that tears, and the grannies that sit together on the sofa to talk. Everything is valuable and is wonderful to look back on.

If you are looking for a photographer to capture the day like this, then the Fotograficus is the photographer for you. Of course, a wonderful photo of the happy couple and a group photo with all the guests will be part of the shoot.

What does it entail:
The presence of the Fotograficus on the wedding day or part thereof. The best photos are selected and edited. These are then delivered in digital form in high resolution. You may use them however you see fit and are not obliged to have them printed in my studio, though I would be pleased to do this for you of course.

The rate for 4 hours of photography is € 650 incl. sales tax.
The rate for 6 hours of photography is € 900 incl. sales tax.
The rate for 8 hours of photography is € 1,150 incl. sales tax.

The Party photo shoot

Life should be celebrated, and birthdays or hen/stag parties are good excuses for celebrations.

What could be more fun than to celebrate in the studio? Just think about your daughter’s children’s party, or an unforgettable afternoon with your friends.

The party shoot can be done in all sorts of ways and styles. With children or adults, men or women, with party hats or in evening dress – whatever takes your fancy!
Children’s parties are fun when the children decorate the frames for the photos that are taken. For a girlie afternoon you could combine the shoot with a make-up session by a make-up artist.

What does it entail:
A morning or afternoon (about 4 hours) photo shoot in the studio. We will talk about how we can arrange the event however you want it in advance. You will receive the best photos in digital form in high resolution, edited. The price also includes one print of 13×18 cm per person.

The rate for a party shoot is € 725 incl. sales tax.

Other costs such as make-up or special materials are not included in the price.

The Event photo shoot

The celebration of the opening of a company, a conference, a presentation or a network meeting.

It is always enjoyable to look at photos of these happenings. Who were there? What was it like? Who were the speakers? And look at the lovely decorations!

It is also a pleasure to share these with the guests or put them on social media.

What does it entail:
The Fotograficus attends your event. She records the most important moments of the event and records the event in general. She photographs the people, the food, the proceedings and so on.

You will receive the best photos in digital form in high resolution which will give a good impression of the event. The preparation, basic photo editing and materials are included in the price. You may use the photos to promote the event on social media, your website, in printed materials and on business cards. When using the photos credit must always be given to Martine Sollie/Fotograficus. Transport within a radius of 20 km from the studio in The Hague is included.

The rate for an event shoot is € 647 excl. sales tax for a half day (4 hours).
