Documenting real life for real families: a Vienna-based documentary photographer
As a mother and professional photographer, I offer documentary photography for families. I believe that the birth of a child and the subsequent time during a family's journey is unique and almost ephemeral in how quickly it passes, and, therefore should be treasured. My gift to my clients is to preserve these unique and somewhat fleeting moments. The result is beautiful, vibrant portraits that capture the exquisitely mundane moments families treasure; so that they can keep and shares these memories with their children and grandchildren through heirlooms such as albums, images on their walls, and other photographic prints.
My favorite photo of me
This is my all time favorite photo of me. There is just so much joy in it. It is almost as if it is some other kid jumping out of that leaf pile, not me. But, I cannot deny that is totally me. And it makes me really happy as an adult to see how carefree I was in that moment.
Shhh...this is not me skiing
Don't tell my husband, but I do know how to ski. I learned when I was knee-high to a grasshopper. The thing is, I kinda hate skiing. So, I pretend I don't know how.
I must be about 8 in this picture based upon the condition of my teeth. I guess I was safety-conscious then to.
That's me at the start of my senior year of high school. See those glasses on my head? They are fake. I was sporting vanity frames before they were a thing. Oh, and I was wearing contacts at the time, because I am just that cool.
My Senior Portrait
I just realized that 15 years later, I have once again sported this hairstyle. Random side story: I was supposed to get my wisdom teeth pulled before this photo was taken, but I refused because I didn't want to have puffy cheeks when my Senior pics were taken, you know because I did not want my yearbook photo to be one where I looked like a chipmunk hoarding acorns. I waited almost 10 more years before getting my wisdom teeth pulled...
Me in a hat and googles
This was taken the year I took off between high school and college. I worked my butt off that year. At one point I had three jobs. I also was in a dance production because I wanted to get over my stage fright.
Grandmom on a 3-wheeler
I am not entirely sure why my Grandmom is on this three wheeler, but I love this photo of her. Her smile is so great and she looks like she is ready to hop on and ride off, while sporting a dress, nylons, and sandels.
