Portraits of Men | Christoph

Ever so often I get asked if it isn't easier to take photos of women. To be honest, I believe that the same thing I'm doing with women, I can replicate with the men in front of my camera. All it needs is some additional know - how of how to pose a man and what is different to posing women. As I only rarely shoot full body images, having a good idea of how to shoot male faces is key. It's important to know how to use light and pose men in front of my camera that it plays up their best features. Look for a strong jaw line, the V - shape and a good posture.      ...

Wio | Under the Magnolia Tree

So in my garden there is this Magnolia Tree. Unfortunately, it only blooms for a very short time in spring. Needless to say that I felt the urge to take some photos with it. Wio came by in the evening and we had a short session in the evening sun. We literally only used a space that is about 2x2m. And what can I say? I'm in love with our photos. ...

Livingroom Sessions

LRSklein

I've already told you about my excitement to use my living room as some sort of "studio space" for the next couple of months. Today I looked back at some of the last shoots I had here and the wonderful people who came to visit me. It's just a quick compilation of images from 2016. Aren't I lucky to photograph such wonderful women? If you also want to visit me for your personal portrait session, don't hesitate to drop me an email. I can't wait to meet you!...

Shooting in SMALL Spaces | Jule

Sometimes other photographers tell me that they don't have a huge studio space, can only photograph outside or have to rent hotel rooms and other studio spaces to take their photos in. I admit - I've done it all. When I started my photography business I shot most of my images outside, then I tried to use my friend's studio for my sessions and I spent a lot of money on hotel rooms and other spaces to shoot in. The last couple of weeks I came to realize that I want something else for 2017. I love to shoot portraits. I usually never shoot full length images or larger group shots and therefore, I'm fine with just a small spot in front of a huge window that gives me lot's and lot's of beautiful natural light. Jule visited me a couple of days before Christmas and there she was, sitting in front of...

Livingroom Session | Jill

2016 marks the 10th year of my photography life. Throughout the years I've approached different styles and photographed a lot of wonderful people. More than ever I realize that being a portrait photographer is what I love most. I can't imagine my life without a camera in my hand. I've always been a photographer who works best with just a small number of people around me. Most of the time it's just me, the client and a make up artist. For me, that's enough. Sometimes I'm even alone with the person in front of my camera. During the last couple of weeks I've shot a number of very intimate sessions at my own place. I call them my "Livingroom Sessions". They are intimate, personal and my cup of tea. I get to share these very personal moments with wonderful people in front of my camera, share a laugh or two or even...

Bo & Karak | Münster

She flew to America to meet him for the first time. He waited for her at the airport. They fell in love. Now, a couple of months later they live together in Germany, planning a life together. What sounds like a fairytale is Bo's and Karak's story. We met in late September for some images. This is what it looks like when love can cross an ocean. ...

Pascal & Jenni

"From this day forward I give you my hand, my heart and my love" - words that Jenni said to the love of her life, her soulmate and best friend. We met a couple of days before Jenni's and Pascal's first wedding anniversary and took some beautiful photos in the evening sun. I love the flattering light in the late afternoon, when the sun slowly goes down and gifts us with this amazing soft light that covers everything golden. ...

Jelto & Susann | Münster

Susann and I met over 9 years ago and I am glad that I can call her a friend. Over the years we created some beautiful memories together, shared lots of tears and laughter, took fun trips together,  and without her, I guess, my photography would have never developed in the direction that it is today. For that, I am forever grateful. The first time I photographed Susann and Jelto together was when she was pregnant with her son Paul. Now, a couple of years later we took some new photos which are a testimony of their love for each other and the beautiful bond they share. Seeing my friend happy and so in love makes me smile and warms my heart.  ...

Angi | This one’s for me

Recently I had a conversation with a friend of mine about having your portraits taken. Alot of us only book a photographer on special occasions like weddings and maybe for your newborn session or maternity session. I'm always astonished when women ask me if it's ok that they are thinking about a portrait session or if that was something that they shouldn't do because "What might other people think about me?" Sometimes I even hear them say after a shoot: "These images are breathtaking, but I don't want others to see them because they might think that I'm a show off or narcissistic". For me, having your photos taken means creating a memory and experience for yourself and this is so unbelievably important. Very often we go through life thinking too much about the opinion of others, holding back because we do not want to get judged on what we do,...
