why I am your photographer
My images are honest and full of heart. I welcome connection, movement and authenticity. The way you love on your babies, the way you snuggle on the couch, the way your toddler giggles when you tickle him. I love photographing in your home, because it is the space where all the little joyous moments of family life happen. As a nature-lover, I also love to take a session outside and explore the paths, forests and gardens your family enjoys the most.
I believe it is so valuable to have beautiful family photos. They are a lifelong reminder of the love and togetherness you share with the ones you have written on your heart.
Most of my clients return, because they treasure their authentic family photos and because they had fun having them taken by me.
My sessions feel light, mellow and relaxed.
Who i photograph
I specialize in lifestyle family photography as well as all photography celebrating women & mothers (portrait, maternity, breastfeeding, newborn, mama & me).
A note on families -
To me a family is any number of people that have an honest connection full of love. Wether that is mother & father, or mother & mother, or father & father, I welcome you. Expecting parents, single parents, grandparents, adoptive parents, patchwork families, couples with dogs, ALL FAMILIES, I welcome you with gratitude!
MY approach & EDITING STYLE
I have a very relaxed approach to shooting. While I will direct you a bit to find the light, encourage interaction and create beautiful frames, I usually give you a lot of room to play and just be yourself. My aim is to capture your family unposed and candid, with a few styled shots here and there. My editing is very simple. While I do give your images a bit of a filmic look, I strive not to over-edit in an attempt to show the true you. While I do some light retouching, I like to show freckles and wrinkles, because they bring your pictures alive! Don't worry though, I will take care of the blemish that appeared the day of the session - because let's face it, those always appear at the worst time!
Due to my (very) young children being with me all day, I have limited availability. I typically shoot on Wednesday mornings or weekends. I can accommodate only a handful of families a month, so try to contact me as soon as you think a session with me could be something that you are interested in.
How to book your session
Contact me here to inquire about your session. I require a 50% retainer fee at booking, as well as a signature on my photography contract and model release.
What happens after booking
After all the formalities are taken care of I will send you my client guide that contains more information about your session. The weeks leading up to your session I'm here for any questions you may have. We get to know each other a bit, figure out the right location and wardrobe for your family and ease into our session. I am always here for you, but at the same time try to make the process as easy and mellow as possible.
After our session I will get to editing. A week or two after you will receive a beautiful online gallery that contains all the edited pictures of your family. From there you can pick the amount of images included in your collection and easily download them straight to your computer.
Additional files, albums, prints and other products can be ordered directly through the gallery and delivered straight to you. It is super easy and I work with amazing labs across the country.
I love to travel. And I love to take photos. So naturally, I love to combine the two.
Depending on childcare I'm always willing to hop on a plane or a train for an interesting session. I keep travel fees reasonable, but I do ask that my travel expenses are covered. Let's figure it out together!
Also, I do travel back to my native Germany once or twice a year and am available for bookings there quite regularly. Check here for all upcoming travel dates.
