Mama, get in the photo, with your kids. For your kids. 

"It lets children learn, who they are and where they fit." Judy Weiser (Psychologist)

And besides,

being in the photo makes us Mamas being seen.

Being valued and being loved.

I BELIEVE

Photos don't belong just on your phone.

They belong on your walls, on your fridge

and form your story in your photobooks.

THAT'S MY FAMILY

A Kiwi & a Berliner, 

funny set of twins & eccentric furry teenager

We are doting parents and photographers but a huge shocker when it comes to being in front of the camera. I am feeling hugely uncomfortable and start behaving awkwardly. It took me half a bottle of bubbles to smile that naturally. Whatever it takes. I feel it's worth it. For our children, and I must confess, also for my wee Mama soul, it is wonderful having our family photos displayed at home. To be enjoyed every day.

WHAT KAREN SAYS

"Oh my goodness Jeannine, you are amazing!! I absolute LOVE our photos! Your passion shows through in the photos and you incredibly captured the atmosphere on that day. Thank you so so much. I've loved dealing with you, from our original communications, our photo-session and now the incredible photos you have delivered. The best."

MY STYLE

Let's make it fun but meaningful

MY GOAL

Be relaxed and yourselves

You are a busy Mama. I feel you. That's why I love to create our session experience as smooth and relaxed as possible. Most families I capture find it easy to have fun and show their love and connection in front of the camera. Either the situation evolves organically or I am guiding them through some fun activities to show their personalities best.

 

And if you do not feel too comfortable in front of the camera, I am here for you and make it as gentle and natural for you as possible. I love photo sessions in the best light, like early mornings or before sunset, however, I rather capture pure fun and connection at any time or weather. 

BACK THEM UP

Save your lifestories and photos

Computer Screens

"I haven't printed any photos in ages." I hear a lot. And later they say that the phone or hard drive broke. Precious photos and memories are gone. Let's be pro-active and start a new routine. Take photos daily, but also weed through them as part of your daily winding-down routine in the evening. Back up your photos regularly, all in one place. Start printing photos - put them up the wall or create photo books. Your kids will love them!

We have many photobooks, by trips and years, and photos on the wall from happy moments. They are good reminders of our love in stressful times.

PHOTOBOOKS ARE MAGIC

those photos and stories form our children's memory

I know what I am heading for in case of a fire: our photobook collection.

 

The biggest hurdle for people is: where to get started? Get some inspiration and ideas here or hand over your personal projects, if you feel that time is an issue. 

My biggest motivation of offering photo sessions and management of your photo collections is to make it happen that you can start making photobooks and give that joy to yourself and your family. Children's self-esteem will be hugely fostered and they can make sense of their own life story.
