#5 Marseille // France

The morning we reached the last stop of our Mediterranean cruise ride, we were welcomed by the oldest and second largest city of France, and already saw its most magnificent building, Marseille’s most impressive landmark: the Basilica of Notre Dame de la Garde majestically bathing in a golden light at dawn. After our classic French [...]

#4 Barcelona // Spain

The tragic sad motorway bridge collapse in Genoa - which we have only crossed a week ago - makes it quite hard to now share happy vacation pictures. Our next stop was beautiful Barcelona. The fact that we had just been there three years ago for my birthday, took the pressure off of feeling the [...]

#3 Valletta // Mdina // Malta

Just as our Captain had promised, entering the Grand Harbor of Valletta with the sun just rising at 6:09 am is just breathtaking and something you’ll never forget. Unlike most other cruise harbors, the port of Valletta is one of the most spectacular natural deep water harbours in the Mediterranean. We were greeted with a [...]

#2 Sicily // Taormina

Next stop on our Mediaterranen tour was Messina, Sicily. We immediately hopped onto a taxi to get to the beautiful old town Taormina, and the journey was definitely a highlight itself. Luigi, our lovable cab driver, was playing some quirky and uplifting Tarantella songs while driving us along the scenic winding roads up to this [...]

#1 Pompeii and Naples

Our first stop in Italy was Naples. We had the nicest tour guide, Massimo, aka taxi driver who took us first to the largest archeological site of the world, Pompeii, driving along castles, cliffs and Mount Vesuvius. Pompeii did not disappoint and was absolutely spectacular. Ever since I had Latin in school and the most [...]

Our first time on a cruise ship

This summer we tried something new: we hopped on a cruise ship to explore the Mediterranean Sea and all its beauty. One of our family members had wished for this once-in-a-lifetime-experience for her big birthday, and her wish was most certainly our command. ;-) Today I would like to share a few impressions of this [...]

Jolina & Jenna

I’ve been knowing and loving and photographing this adorable family for 13 years now, ever since Jolina was a wee 6-week-old baby girl. Sandra and Stefan were brave enough to show up at our monthly 46plus down syndrome meetup, although they had just entered their new world of living with a little extra. Just in [...]

Beate & Finn

These two guys are very dear to my heart ... I have been photographing them ever since Finn was a cute little 3-year-old, and there is nothing more rewarding than growing up with your clients and hearing their story. Beate is one of these strong women I really look up to and who heavily inspire [...]

Special Olympics 2018 in Kiel

Here’s a little trip report (in gazillion images) from our wonderful week in Kiel last week, where we proudly attended the national Special Olympics with our 46PLUS Down-Syndrom Stuttgart e. V. athletes team. We were a group of 20 people altogether, and although we all spent our time together from early dawn till midnight every [...]

Linus & family

This first image pretty much sums up what this rad family is all about: love, laughter, and tons of chaos. The good one. These guys have learned early on to embrace life and not its struggle, savoring the simple things that make our journey, called life, so wondrous.. They have learned to whatever happen, happen. They have [...]
