Frequently Asked Questions
Here are answers to the most frequent questions asked of me as a professional photographer:
What are the steps for booking this Model Test Shoot in Amsterdam or in the Netherlands?
First send me a message with an introduction about you, the date and time that you would like to shoot, the type of photoshoot and the package that are you interested in, and the most important when would you like to shoot. If we can find the perfect day for the photoshoot you will have to book the package in this page as soon as we agree on a day and time. After that I will send you a moodboard with inspiration about outfits for your shoot.
To secure your spot I recommend you to book your photoshoot 2 weeks or 1 month in advance. You will have to pay the full amount online. I offer on my web page the possibility to pay with major credit cards, iDEAL and PayPal is also available, but I will have to add the cost of the Paypal’s fee. The payment is easy and secure, it will take you just 1 minute!
Are you available for a last minute booking?
Yes! Sometimes I can have some spots left and I may be available, so please contact me ASAP so we can arrange a day and time.
Do you shoot on a weekend?
I normally don’t shoot on weekends so I can have a good work-life balance and also because the weekends get more busy with people around unless we are shooting in the early morning. But if you cannot make it during the week I can shoot in the weekend. To shoot on the weekend has an extra cost of a 50% on the package that you decide to book.
What should I wear?
The outfits depend on the season and locations so as soon as the booking is done I will create a moodboard with inspiration about outfits for your shoot. I recommend to check makeup and hair, afterwards you will see that on the pictures.
Can I do changes of outfits?
Yes! Please have a look at the packages options so you can see the number of outfits that it includes, and I will bring a portable tent where you can easily change. If you would like to do more changes of outfits please just let me know it, so I can do a custom quote for you.
Can I upgrade my package?
Yes! Packages can be upgraded until the day of the photoshoot. Please, contact me if this is the case. Downgrade of packages is not possible.
What happens if I am late to the photoshoot?
Please be on time, I always have more photoshoots after yours and I need to be on time for everyone.
– If you are 30 minutes late, it means 30 minutes will be discounted of your session.
– If you are more than 30 minutes late, it will automatically result in cancellation and the money won’t be refunded.
Can I use these photos to promote my business or brand?
Yes, these photos can be used for your personal social media, private use and commercial purposes like promote your business, product, web page, YouTube Channel or marketing content.
Can I choose my favorite photos?
Yes, the next day of the photoshoot I will send you a link with lots of photos with my logo and you will can choose your favorite ones depending the package that you booked. You cannot decide selecting and you would like to buy some extra photos? No worries about it. It is also possible to buy extra photos!

When will I receive the photos?
You will receive the photos edited after 7-10 days. I send you the photos via a WeTransfer link. Here you can download the photos at the highest quality.
The deposit cost from all the shoots is 80€ and is not refundable. In the unlikely case of extreme bad weather or a medical reason we will reschedule the shoot to another time slot.
Can I reschedule my photoshoot?
Please, contact me as soon as possible if you want to reschedule your photo session. I will do my best to find a new time-slot for the session during your stay.
– The rescheduling is free of charge if the request is received at least 7 days prior to the photo session.
– For rescheduling 1 to 6 days prior to the session, 50€ will be added to the total price of the package.
– Rescheduling less than 48 hours prior to the session is not possible. In this case a new booking will have to be made.
What happens if it rains?
I always check the weather every week, if I see that the day of hour photoshoot is going to rain I will send you a message. Normally in Amsterdam rains for short periods of time. When is about light rain we go ahead with the planned photoshoot, we just need an umbrella and your best smile! If the weather conditions are heavy rain, we’ll try to find another option of time if it is possible.
Can I bring my luggage?
It is not possible to do the shoot if you bring big suitcases, since we’ll be walking around during the session, I strongly recommend to bring as little bags with you as possible.
Can I bring people to the photoshoot?
Yes, but I will not take pictures from that person you bring with you.
Can you recommend a nice make-up artist and hairstylist?
Yes! It’s possible to to book an additional hair and make-up artist to company on the shoot. I have a pdf of professional make up artists and hairstylists that I work often with. Please let me know if you would like me to send it to you.
Can I receive the photos no edited or in RAW?
Unfortunately that’s not possible. You are hiring me because you trusted my work and you liked my photography and edition style. If I deliver the photos not edited I wouldn’t be finishing my work as an artist. I deliver all the photos edited make them look their best. Thank you so much for your understanding.

My first shoot ever was with Sandra and I could not be happier with my first experience. Everything was prepared so professional and the shoot was amazing and so flawless. My friend who is a model and came with me has worked with many photographers and she said, the light, the angles and the photo’s (we only saw on the little camera screen) were amazing!!! I can’t wait for the results. Sandra is such a nice person and very lovely to work with. Thank you so so so much, hopefully we will shoot together in the future!!!!

I had a great shoot with Sandra! She is friendly, enthusiastic, very creative and was super professional! All communication and planning went smoothly, as did the shoot itself. She gave me great direction whilst also giving me space to be creative in my movements and poses. The photos also turned out beautiful! Overall, it was a fantastic experience, with amazing results. It was a pleasure meeting and working with Sandra! I felt at ease in her company and left our shoot very inspired. I couldn’t recommend her more as a photographer, particularly when it comes to editorial/fashion work. I look forward to working with her again in the future! 🙂
Sandra heeft echt super mooie professionele foto’s gemaakt ondanks ik nog niet echt ervaring had. Ze heeft me heel veel tips gegeven tijdens de shoot waaraan ik ook zeker wat heb bij mijn toekomstige shoots. Erg tevreden met het shooten bij deze aardige en behulpzame fotograaf!

It was a very good photoshoot with Sandra. She was on time and her preparation work was perfect. So the photoshoot was really straightforward and I had enough space to bring my own input in the pictures we had in mind. We shot in 3 different places and specially in the deserted Schiphol! Very good experience!

My shoot with Sandra was great! In the beginning, you never know what the photographer will be like, but Sandra was really nice and fun to talk to. She made me feel comfortable and we could communicate well together. It was also nice that she already had a lot of experience, so she knew some great angles and poses for the photos to look good. Looking forward to future shoots with her!
Heel goed samengewerkt met Sandra! Tijdens de eerste shoot in lange tijd raakte ik steeds meer op mijn gemak met Sandra’s tips en een easy-going sfeer, en ik ben ook erg blij met het resultaat!
What an amazing experience. I went for a modelling portfolio shoot with Sandra, and at first I was stressed and nervous because it was my first photoshoot, but she made all the stress go away and that’s when the fireworks were created. Sandra directed my each and every pose, making sure all the right angles and features were being showcased. She really helped me notice what the do’s and don’ts were and how to angle my body to make the pose look perfect. Sandra’s friendliness immediately put me at ease and she was open for anything, giving me great advice along the way. I would definitely recommend Sandra to anyone who is starting their modelling journey or wants to gain more experience of what it is like to be behind the lens of a camera. It’s amazing what Sandra created, aside from her skill and talent.

First Impression and (Test) Shoot (package) Experience: I had my first test shoot with Sandra today. I am an already signed curve model with three different agencies in EU that had been looking for a photographer that could help me realise my vision for my modelling portfolio. I booked Sandra at the last minute and yet she managed to remain highly timely, professional and organised through out the entire booking process up until the very end of the shoot. I made the mistake of picking out a location contrary to what she recommended ( habit of trustissues and stubbornness) after she so clearly did her research on the weather ( and warned me that it might be too sunny for the picked location- and might cause some heavy lighting issues. I went ahead and picked it anyway and got a little worried when we met at the location ( EYE FILM MUSEUM). She somehow lead us to work around it and just proofed to be a photographer that can make great shots anyway, anyhow! I expressed to Sandra that I mainly wanted to showcase my potential for more editorial and high fashion type of work. What can I say, she delivered! Her suggestions, opinions made it for a successful shooting day. I am very impressed and blown away with what she showed me so far on the camera today. I can’t wait to discuss the options with my agency and to see the finished retouched images. I trust and value Sandra’s work and would surely book her services again.
