    Maren is excellent at listening to what you like and how you feel most comfortable and confident. Then she translates that into a natural and yet glowing look that underlines you and your personality.

    No. Just come as beautiful as you are without any make-up. This way Maren can do her best work.

    Maren uses only high-quality, natural make-up products and is used to taking allergies and sensitive skin into account. Please let her know at the beginning of your make-up session in case there is anything she needs to be particularly aware of.

    Please wash and dry your hair before your session. Don’t style it. This way, your hair will be most collaborative during Maren’s styling ;-).

    Choose clothing that you feel comfortable and confident in and that reflects your energy and colors. If you intend the portrait for your website, please check your brand colours. What are they? Would your clothing correspond to them?

    Bring two outfits (wear one, bring the second one) so we could change outfits in case your second outfit is a better fit.

    Andrea’s minimalist style gravitates towards using monocoloured pieces of clothing. But if pattern is part of who you are and what you love, then, yes, please bring on the pattern!

    It is important for you to know though that patterns can direct the attention away from your face. If you are unsure, check with us before your session regarding your clothing choice.

    Accessories, like a colourful necklace or earrings can give a bit of a dazzle to an outfit. This is a nice and clever way to add accent colours. If you have such items and you think they could be a great addition, please bring them along!

    You can park your car for free at the parking lots to your right after the drive-in of the Abdij.

    We would like to ask you to pay the full amount after you have registered via this website.

    You will receive a confirmation email and the invoice. Once you have made the payment (bank transfer), your spot on The Portrait Day is secured.

    We would like to ask you to let us know as soon as possible so that we could offer your place for someone else. At the latest, please let us know 24 hours before your session with us starts.

    We will do our best to offer you a replacement date. If this is not possible, we will refund your payment.
