The story

Before Mette Elba came, we knew we wanted to document our family life in a nice way. To have our precious captured moments all in one place as a visual diary without any other type of content.


Nous involves Joey, Lenneke, Mette and Lore. Joey is a photographer and web designer. His work can be found on Cloud Cuckoo. Lenneke is a jewellery designer. She runs Lennebelle and has several other exciting projects and her illustrational work which is featured on A Little Hamster.

The equipment

We use various types of cameras to document our adventures. For analog shots we use a Leica M3 camera with a Summicron 50mm and a Elmarit 90mm lens accompanied with different kinds of film (mostly Ilford XP2 400 CN-41) For scanning we use an Epson Perfection V500 scanner and Vuescan software. As for digital, we use a Canon 5D MarkIII and Canon 5D MarkIV with a Canon 24mm-70mm 2.8 L, Canon 50mm 1.4 and a Canon 16mm-35mm f4 lens. And also several iPhone cameras were used. For editing we rely on Lightroom, Photoshop and Premiere.
