HI, THAT'S ME, A BERLINER IN THE NEW ZEALAND SOUTHERN ALPS.
I am a natural light wedding and family portrait photographer and
love to capture people and their relationships in a meaningful, natural and non-obtrusive way.
Most of my photographs are in a documentary style, with a few gently guided, natural portraits.
My imagery is described as authentic, beautiful and connected.
Motherhood can be so rewarding but also challenging.
Picking up my camera does wonders for helping me live in the moment and also see the beauty in everyday life.
I am inspired by my witty twin girls, their love for life's adventures, curiosity and open hearts and minds.
I learned that I could capture more than what they look like, but who they really are.
Each year, these photos are thoroughly curated and put in beautiful albums.
The children love looking through their albums.
Actually, we all do, and it gives us lots of opportunities to relive special moments.
Eventually, those precious collections of photographs will form the memories of our children.
These albums also are wonderful gifts for their grandparents overseas, which helps them see the girls growing up down under.
I love to help to create those collections of memories and albums for you too!
I am an early riser. Yoga and a pot of green tea at 4 am. That's me.
I love to have a laugh and great glass of red wine.
I love travelling and call many places home.
I lived in 4 different types of societies:
10 years in a planned economy, in East Germany,
10 years in capitalism, in West Germany,
10 years in a monarchy, in the Principality of Liechtenstein, and
10 years in the social-democratic country of New Zealand.
I am making my own Sauerkraut and my girls are funny in English and German.
