Welcome to the LMBB Werkstatt feature. In this series, we’ll invite women who run their own businesses to tell us about what they do – and maybe give you a sweet special offer (see below!). We want to hear from momtrepeneurs & business women in our community, so get in touch and tell us what you do!
Named for being local, approachable and relaxed, Corner Store is a mobile photography studio like no other, offering high quality professional photographs at reasonable and affordable prices. I love to photograph portraits of people – newborns, children, families and all sorts of interesting characters.
I have a mobile studio which means I photograph at my client’s homes just days after the babies are born. My newborn series are always clean, modern and tasteful, never overwhelming the babies with too many props. The props that I do use are mostly handmade by myself and customized to each baby, to ensure the parents receive unique and one-of-a-kind keepsake photograph of their little ones.
I’m interested in capturing the essence of true personality and character through my lens. I search for the light in everyone I photograph, including little tiny humans and hope to reveal everyone’s true soul onto beautiful compositions.
As clean and calm as my newborn photos are, my personal background couldn’t be more of a contrast. It is as colorful as it is eclectic and has heavily contributed to the development of my photography style.
Before stepping behind the camera, I held positions as chief fashion designer, head of evening wear, and creative director at the international fashion house of Escada, Asia’s luxury brand Moiselle and upscale children’s brand, Amore di Mamma. I’ve been privileged to have worked on set with the fashion industry’s top photographers in New York, Toronto, Paris, Hong Kong and Berlin and have designed for, dressed and styled the crème de la crème – everyone from celebrities to supermodels, as well as babies and young children.
I combine my understanding of lighting, fashion, styling and artistic direction with my love of photography to bring out everyone’s most beautiful selves.
Don’t be misled by my high fashion experience. I am anything but a stereotypical fashionista. I am an optimistic, super positive soul who loves to work with everyone, especially babies (I’ve been called a baby whisperer!). I’m super down-to-earth and make it my personal mission to do all it takes to get the perfect photo.
When I’m not photographing for Corner Store, I am also a fashion designer, a personal stylist, and run a street style blog called, VON ZWEI that captures portraits of people with interesting street style in Munich and around the world. I’m also one of the co-directors of Little Munich Black Book! I dislike being categorized as a specific profession, because I am all of these professions, so I’d prefer to be call a ‘Cross Creative’.
Hope to see you soon at the LMBB events or at your next photo session! xx Yo.
