I AM A DOCUMENTARY FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER
CELEBRATING THE BEAUTY OF FAMILY LIFE
Family photojournalism is exactly what it sounds like: a photographic documentary of your life. There’s no posing, no directing – these sessions are real, raw and honest. The images will be a true representation of your life as a family.
My images will tug at your heartstrings, making you cry. And laugh out loud. I want to make you proud about the unique life you are creating and crafting every day by showing you the beauty in the biggest task you have ever taken on: parenthood.
I live in Germany but I also photograph in European metropolises like Vienna and Paris. Don’t be shy, travel is part of the fun. I am a curious, observant people person with an eagle eye for moments and the patience to wait for them, which makes me exceptionally good at photojournalistic work. I strive for a particular aesthetic of simple and unobtrusive, yet meaningful beauty in composition and images that are cheerful, kind and timeless.
I will tell your story, capture who you are at this moment in time. Together we will create something significant. And we will have a bloody good time doing so.
We love the images because they show our great, sweet, cheerful, witty, crazy, stubborn children and us – our family. That is exactly why they are so awesome: Our family with all its facets. Fortunately, we did not make a plan beforehand – we are certain, it would not have turned out as spontaneous and well as it did.JUDITH, FAMILY E
We love the obvious naivety of our children the most about the images. There are many perfect, yet everyday moments, captured in beautiful light. I really appreciated the relaxed atmosphere between Petsy and us. It is great for children to have someone around them, who gives them the feeling that they understand. Petsy does.CHRISTINE, FAMILY K
You really have a gift for the perfect moment and to capture beautiful situations (for example when Finian pulls our cat’s tail :-)) We really enjoy your ideas for compositions. Partial captures of of something or someone are some of my favorite photos. You put tremendous thought into your work. We could see that you love what you do.DENISE, FAMILY O
WHAT EVERYDAY MOMENTS
AM I LOOKING FOR?
Your daily routine offers endless photo opportunities. Just by living it. Family Photojournalism is organic and spontaneous, which makes it so super fun. What happens happens.
This could be ‘teachable moments’ when your kids push boundaries or learn something new, happy goofing around faces, grumpy homework faces, and all of the weird faces in between, the creative energy (= chaos) of siblings and their individualities, setting the table and making family dinners, bedtime routines (bath time, brushing teeth, story time, tucking in).
