Hi! My name is Bertina Bartlett, 29 years and married to Aaron. I am a dreamer and I come to life in enthusiasm. I contemplate a lot about life and beauty and I love to show it through photography. I also love the Veluwe (the green heart of the Netherlands) where we live on a beautiful farm, including my studio, in Putten.
It was 2011 when I first picked up my camera, and I started photographing proffesionally in 2013. For three years I lovingly photographed weddings, couples, lifestyle and much more. Photography is completely my thing. I am enjoying everything I do and I love seeing my clients enjoy my work.
In 2015 I started to think about different directions and possibilities and wondered what precisely it was that I loved so much about photography. I am an encourager at heart and realised women really started to shine in front of my camera. A lot of women say the same thing at the beginning of a photoshoot: "Just so you know, I never look well in photographs." They start out a little insecure, but I love to encourage them and bring them at ease. I want to show them how beautiful they are! That's why at the end of 2015 I decided to start something completely new, a brand tailored especially for women; from all ages, phases and backgrounds. I made a plan and as a result I launched Silver Linings at the beginning of 2017.
Every woman can be a model. I am convinced of this! I want to give them a great day and a beautiful memory, to hold on to for the rest of their lives.

All women are beautiful. Amen.
