"We are making photographs to understand what our lives

mean to us " . -Ralph Hattersley-



Nice to meet you


My name is Erika Brouwer. I come from a small village south of Slovakia. In 2007 I met my greatest love Jeroen in Austrian Alps. After a year of dating between the Netherlands, Ireland and Slovakia, I moved to the Netherlands. We live in Delft together with our three children and two cats.


Love for photography


Photography has been my great passion for a long time. When I bought my first digital mirror reflex camera in Ireland in 2007, followed by an artistic photography course, the whole new world opened up to me.

Beside the portrait photography I love the nature, landscape, macro, documentary and street photography. 

For my family I make a large photo album with hundreds of photos every year. All elements of my passions meet in there. 

In 2015 I started as an independent photographer, to capture precious memories for my clients.


The community

When I became a mother in 2011, I came across the Delft Mama Foundation. Working full time in another city, I knew only few people in and around Delft. I was lucky with Delft Mama, because there I got to know the mothers from the whole world. Because of this community of international parents and as an expat I have started to create my community of internationals and Dutch people. And the story goes on. Nowadays I am a member of the Dea Dia Foundation, which connects female entrepreneurs and inspires each other!


Fun facts about me

I am a romantic dreamer, animal and nature lover, I love cooking Italian, Slovakian, Indian dishes. Like hiking in the mountains, cycling, yoga, crazy book reader. Harry Potter books are my all time favorite. Romantic comedies and fantasy movies will make my day.


Giving back to community


Since the beginning of 2019, I've been working for the Earlybirds Foundation, making photo reportages  of premature babies in the hospital. For many parents, this photo shoot is a valuable memory, allowing them to look back at an emotional and sometimes difficult period. I think it is very special to be able to do this.
