What kind of a photographer are you?
I am a natural light lifestyle photographer who even enjoys rainy days and dramatic skies.
How far out are you booked?
Usually about 2-3 months.
Where will my session be held?
I have several locations around the Wiesbaden area which I can recommend, whether it be a typical German town, river side beach or the hills. I have plenty of options which we can decide together as we prepare for the photos.
How long will my session be?
The good news is, I am super fast and my sessions last rarely more than an hour unless it involves travelling from one location to another.
What will my session be like?
It will be fun! My aim is to capture moments of love and tenderness, fun and crazy laughter. It should all be about you and the connection you have with your family. I will guide you and give you tips but definitely avoid posing and saying "cheese". Remember that children are not usually fond of being told to pose or smile. It is best if we just give time to relax and try to capture their natural self. Don't worry if your child is running about and active, most of the images you see of children on my site were captured while the child or toddler was busy playing and exploring.
For the family shots, I usually direct the adults to simply "be" with the child, or hold the child and we go from there.
To get the most out of your session, make sure that your little ones have rested, are fed and not thirsty. Little snacks are always welcome!
Prepare your child for our session by telling them that a friend is taking some photos of them, its best not to surprise them.
What should I wear?
Clothing should definitely be comfortable and reflect who you are. I love color but I also love neutrals. Whatever you end up wearing, it should make YOU happy and not me. I do not recommend matching but rather coordinating. Most important is that you avoid logos, pictures and/or large prints on tops which might distract. In our email exchange, we will also discuss outfits according to season, location and your taste. I am happy to consult you directly on wardrobe, feel free to ask.
Anything I need to know for the day of our session?
Yes! Please arrive on time and be fully ready for our session. Remember, your session is scheduled according to light! Plan on traffic and/ or parking constraints.
