My style

— My style is simple and clean with the focus on what you love the most, your children’s personality. I want to capture life's moments that are as simple as a hug or the exchange of a secret between daughter and dad. I want my subjects to forget about me and my camera and get an insight into their day to day family life. Because this is what we want to remember. It is not about the background or a fancy dress, it is about the interactions and the feelings that we want to relive years later when we look back.


My background

— I am German, married to an Indian, having lived in Paris and South of France for 8 years before settling in Bangalore in September 2014.  I am mother of two children, one and three years old and they often have challenged me with their wildness and excitement during our photo shoots, but looking back I am happy to have kept those precious moments for a life time.


My path

— I have started working as a photographer as early as in my high school days. I took photographs for a newspaper, did an intern ship at an architecture and advertising photographer, but soon found out that it is portraits that I love shooting the most. I have completed my University Degree in Visual Communication with focus on Photography and have been working as an Art Director in Francfort, Germany and Paris, France for some of the biggest Communication Agencies, such as Leo Burnett, DDB, Havas Worldwide and Publicis. Having worked for some quite impressive companies such as Audi, Fiat, Peugeot, France Telecom, Sanofi and many others, I am happy to get back to my roots today and make my living with the simple sweetness of the every day, by capturing family stories.
