Feel free to read more about my motivation behind my work as a photographer.


Fine arts, movies, people, animals – I watch. Sketching, storytelling and making photos have always been a part of me and so I became a graphic designer.

As an Art Director having worked in advertising agencies in Germany and Belgium I was hunting for the best key visual in every campaign. After several relocations in Europe and Asia I started to drew on the aspects I loved most in my work and shifted my focus to my passion – visualizing stories in pictures. I want to photograph the way situations make me feel in a special moment, highlighting the beauty that passes us by – often unrecognized, to capture stills in a moving world.

My latest work is about Natural Portraits and Portraits of Nature.


I truly love to capture people, to anticipate and perceive individual expressions while giving my photographed subjects the most comfortable way of opening up at the shootings and sharing their happiness about their own delighted sight on the pictures.


Today I live with my husband and our two children near Frankfurt/Main, Germany.
