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.

This year I can’t wait to grow my own flowers … thanks to my awesome publisher Neufeld Verlag and the Down-Syndrom InfoCenter who teamed up again for the [...]

So thrilled to have the wonderful actress, speaker and activist for raising down syndrome awareness and inclusion - CARINA KÜHNE - on my „Coffee Talk“ today. I’ve been knowing Carina and her family since 2004, when Hermann Stüssel introduced us and praised her magnificent piano playing skills. I feel incredibly honored that Carina and her [...]

Happy New Year

Happy New Year, everyone! I like this time of the year when everything and everywhere it’s kind of „quiet“ and you get a chance to sit down and reflect of what made you happy, what worked and what didn’t last year. Although all the new year-new you thing sounds a bit cliche, there is power [...]
