Hi there, welcome to Visual Stories

My name is Micheile which looks more complicated than it is. You simply pronounce it ‘mee – shell‘. I’m a visual storyteller here at Visual Stories where the name says it all —storytelling through imagery. Here you’ll find my stock photography, free templates + printables. Also posts on interior design & lifestyle as well as posts about the city I love, Rotterdam.

I believe in paying it forward, and helping where we can. If you’re looking for someone to help you set up your WordPress theme, or help you edit your Photoshop projects contact me and maybe I can help you. All I ask in return is that you Pay it Forward.

The Gardens of Trompenburg

One of my favorite places to spend a morning or afternoon is Trompenburg Tuinen & Arboretum. A hidden gem in Rotterdam.The landscaped gardens invite you to forget the hustle and bustle of the city and simply feast your eyes on an explosion of colour.


We’ve lived her for just two years but already Rotterdam feels like home. I can’t imagine ever wanting to live anywhere else.

Rotterdam, with the most impressive skyline, flamboyant architecture, harbors, and so hidden gems left for me to discover, Rotterdam has it all. 

I want to connect with like-minded Creatives like you!
