Unplugged in South Tyrol

We are back! Back to Stuttgart. Back to school. Back to our routine. Some of you might have wondered where to I have been disappeared. In the midst of our holidays I followed my heart, put the phone away and just unplugged. And it felt so incredibly good. So much peace of mind. No interruptions. [...]

#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 [...]

Pompeii did not disappoint and was absolutely spectacular. Ever since I had Latin in school and the most [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

10 things I loved in Amsterdam

After three long months of Juliana constantly having the flu or some sort of cold and fever, we were all ready for a change of scenery. I actually don’t remember how we came up with Amsterdam, but it’s a beautiful city I have always loved. We took it all easy there, with no special tour [...]

Happy World Down Syndrome Day!

I can proudly say I’ve been one of them, and ever since I had the great pleasure of working with an amazing team on various cool projects in order to raise down syndrome [...]
