Twice International Photographer of the Year: My Celebration of Special Moments!


Twice International Photographer of the Year!


Hello all,

I am incredibly excited to share with you that for the second year in a row, I have won the title of International Photographer of the Year in the Newborn photography category for the Legacy Photography Awards. This achievement is not only a tribute to my passion, but also to the special moments I get to capture.

A "Once in a Lifetime" Experience:

I thought last year that winning this title would be a once in a lifetime experience. However, it is now very special that I get to experience this for the second time. This exceeds my expectations!

Exceptional Recognition:

What makes this win extra special is that this year I was also one of the finalists in the Maternity category, as well as in the Studio Childs Portrait category. It is truly exceptional and I am so proud!

Triumph in the Newborn Category:

In the Newborn category this year, I was able to take first place in 6 of the 11 editions, along with another 12 second places. Capturing emotion and tenderness in images remains a true art form for me. I look at each photo as a Fine Art project, creating fairy-tale images of the models in my studio.



A Look Behind the Scenes:

Let me give you a behind-the-scenes look at Anja Maesen Photography. My approach is always focused on professionalism, safety, and capturing unique moments in the lives of parents and children. On the home page you will find a video showing how a newborn shoot is created.

Invitation to Collaboration:

I invite you to join me in capturing these unique moments. For parents looking for lasting memories, I offer a special experience. This goes beyond simply delivering photos; together we make it an unforgettable experience!


I proudly look forward to what the future holds and continue to strive for perfection in my art. Thank you for being a part of this special adventure!
