A Garden full of diverse mixed cultures where more and more fall outside of Traditional understandings. Do we let them bloom naturally? All girls are mixed raced children (also of mixed race parents), growing up within different cultural backgrounds. These kids feel happy to grow up within the best of different worlds. History shows that this wasn't always the case. Why did the outside world create an environment were some kids seems to battle Racial Imposter Syndrome? Evolution will never stop creating Beautiful New Beings because Nature is stronger than human Glass Raised Crop.

My name is Saene-Esmée, I'm a Dutch Photographer, graduated at the Fine Art Academy Maastricht Photography. I specialize in children's photography and working in the fashion industry for multiple kids brands. Within my Personal work I always distinctively try to show some of my dreamy vision and the serenity of a child with a nostalgic look at childhood. I'm drawn into the magic that comes from childhood dreams. But also instinctively concerned about diversity and equality in growing up in a multi cultural world. I like to let my portraits speak in these matters.
