Hi, I'm Esmee LO. I am a photographer from the Netherlands.

I am in 11th grade which means I graduate from high school next year, which means I'm 16. However don't let my age fool you. I might not have the same 'great' experience as the photographer you're thinking of hiring but I do believe that I am worth a shot. 

I started doing photography back in 2013. I actually started out with video first. As time went on, I discovered that photography was more my forte. So I switched. In these past years I haven't done much with my photography and I was feeling unfulfilled, unhappy and... bored. I was searching for something that I didn't even know I was looking for. Discovering that photography was really my passion at age 15 is the best thing that could ever happen to me. I would come home, do homework and watch netflix, every day in and out.

That all changed in December of 2017, when I had decided: 

We are just doing it and we'll see where it goes

Within one night I had launched the first version of my website, created a social media account, and texted my friends to see who was up for a shoot. After almost a year of hard work and persistence, I am proud to be where I am right now. I'm proud that I get to do what I love, I am proud of the fact that I'm only 16 and so I actually have almost an entire lifetime to keep going, make mistakes and pursue my passion. I have stepped out of my comfort zone a lot ever since 2018 started and I'm not ready to stop. I don't think I'll ever be. I love being creative and I even started a podcast and started writing stories.

 This has been by far the best decision I had ever made in my entire life. And so here we are. Me trying to convince you of hiring me for your next big thing. I won't convince you. You have a mind of your own and in no way will I ever attempt to manipulate your beautiful mind. Instead, you're just going to have to figure it out on your own. I will say though that I love doing photography and I am interested in hearing your story. 

I love my city. Other things I love: pizza, Instagram, Netflix, my family and friends, my camera, my dog, music, The Netherlands, meeting new people, New York Yankees and cheesecake. Feel free to bond with me over any of the aforementioned items.
