I am Karin Miedema. I was born in the Netherlands. I was a midwife assistant and then stayed in the family for ten days after the baby is born. I am a specialized nurse for the mother and new born babies. I teach them how to look after the new born, Make sure mom heals fine and baby is ok. I also look after other children in the family and some housework. ‘Kraamverzorgster” this is called and for as far as I know only the Netherlands has this kind of care. I looked after children from when I was very young.
IEmigrated to Canada in 1981 and married a Canadian. I have 2 sons and 2 daughters and 2 beautiful granddaughters. They love to be in my studio and be my model and use the props I have.
I have had a cat and dog, but they both passed. You can see I love animals.
I always had a strong interest in pictures and photography all my life.
I started with photography about 10 years ago. First nature (that I still do) and for the last 8 years I do photo shoots. I have a studio here at home, lots of props I can use if needed, but will also go on location.
I am a family photographer and love to work with children.
