Finally a Boy

I had the pleasure and privilege do a couple of newborn-shootings in the past and I really enjoy photographing babies and a happy, "new" family. Strangely all the little ones have been girls so far. Well that changed at the end of last year: Matteo is the son of my Cousin Wolfgang and his wife Tini – and brother to his proud sister Livia. 

During the shoot Matteo was quiet and relaxed. This chilled attitude could come in handy, growing up as only boy (so far) with six girls in the family. On the other hand, he won't have any problems charming them with these incredible eyes.

Congratulations to Wolfgang and Tini and welcome to the family Matteo!

that special glow

A few weeks ago I got a call from Ivana. I had the privilege of shooting her wedding with Marco last year (you can see the pictures here). Ivana surprised me with the news that they are expecting a baby and asked me if I could do a couple of maternity pictures for them. It was a surprise for her husband for their first wedding anniversary. Well, no need to ask me twice ...

We had a very relaxed and nice afternoon together in their awesome house. Marco even surprised his wife with some flowers. As for the pictures – see for yourself.

Welcome to the Family

Mona - that is the name of the youngest member of my family. She is the super sweet daughter of my cousin Marion and her husband Peter and sister to their first child Mia.

Mona was only 6 days old when I took these pictures and I am really happy that I had the chance to capture these precious moments. And what a great older sister Mia is to her! Carefully snuggling and kissing the baby, always keeping an eye on me so that I do no harm to her new sibling.

Watching this young family interact was pure joy. Rest assured to meet them again on my blog.
