Sneak Peek: Schwangerschafts-Fotoshooting | Fotostudio 67117 Limburgerhof | Fotograf Mannheim Ludwigshafen Speyer

Repeat clients are the best form of flattery for me! I love it when clients come back!
This morning I had a beautiful family visit me in the studio for maternity pictures.
I was especially thrilled to see their son again! The last time he was in my studio he was a newborn.
Soon he will be a big brother!

Thank you for letting me show a bit of what we did today!

Sneak Peek | Familien-Fotoshooting | Fotostudio 67117 Limburgerhof | Fotograf Mannheim Ludwigshafen Speyer

This beautiful family visited my studio yesterday for a family session.
Family sessions that include the Grandparents are so special.
As you can see, the youngest member of the family wasn’t too happy about having his picture taken
but I think as he gets older, he’ll be glad to see these pictures and know he was surrounded by love.

Wishing you all a blessed Easter weekend!

Studio Changes | Fotostudio 67117 Limburgerhof | Fotograf Mannheim Ludwigshafen Speyer

February 2011 – February 2016
It has been 5 years since I converted a bit of space into a small photo studio!
Over the last 5 years, I’ve continued to make changes in the studio
trying to optimize it for the type of sessions that I do.


It is a small space (about 30m² or about 323 f²) and I need to have a larger shooting area for families as well as being able to do sessions with children and babies. I need a variety of different backgrounds and props that are easy to set up and use in limited space. Last year I was  considering giving up baby sessions, especially newborn sessions, since these type of sessions require a totally different type of set up and props than sessions with families/children. It was a lot of work trying to set up what I need for a newborn session and then put it away again after each newborn session and also needs a lot of storage space. The storage space problem was solved in 2013 when I set up cupboards in the hallway outside the studio for storing larger props but the set up and take down time remained a problem.

The last few weeks have been busy with making changes in the studio which I hope will help with reducing the set up and clean up time for newborn sessions. My husband has built me a small platform in the studio which gives a dedicated space for newborns, babies and small children. It allows me to also use smaller backgrounds which means set up/take down goes faster and the small backgrounds take up less space so I also have more room for a larger variety of backgrounds for babies and children. I’ve moved my blankets, wraps and baby clothes into the studio as well as setting up a change table with heater over it. These changes make newborn and baby sessions more comfortable and easier for all of us.

The two larger shooting areas which are used for families and adults are still at the front and the back of the studio. On each side of the studio I have a few different large backgrounds that can be chosen from for sessions with families, couples and other constellations needing a larger background.

The side wall is white on one side and black on the other for basic white or black backgrounds and behind the white sheet on the one side, I have attached my headboard background that is ready to go at anytime for family or baby/children sessions where this type of background is wished. The movable window is also available as a background on it’s own or as part of a scene.

One thing I have realized over the years, is that I can never say that I am totally finished with improvements.
Each year has me thinking of what I changes I can do in my little studio to make things better.
I am especially thankful for my husband who patiently listens, makes suggestions
and then spends his after work hours helping me make the changes I want done!

Sneak Peek | Neugeborenen-Fotoshooting | Newborn | Fotostudio 67117 Limburgerhof | Fotograf Mannheim Ludwigshafen Speyer

Hopefully 2016 has gotten off to a terrific start for you!
I am so happy to start photo sessions again after a long Christmas break and birthday holiday!
2016 photo season has gotten off to a special start with a sweet 5 week old baby boy and his parents.
And I think it’s extra special that I will be ending the 2016 season with his Smash the Cake session in December!

In newborn photography, we try to get the newborns in before they are 2 weeks old
in order to get the sleepy curly poses that are so typical of newborns.
Baby Mika was awake and alert for his entire session and already had such strong neck control!
We didn’t get the sleepy curly poses but he gave us some super cute looks
and did so well for his photo session, he was so much fun to work with and to snuggle with!



In between, he did get sleepy and gave some huge yawns but still refused to fall asleep and miss anything!


His parents also brought a couple of outfits with for pictures. This little snail outfit required that he lay on his tummy.
Usually I do this pose with a sleeping newborn but we decided to try it with him.
Please be aware of newborn safety if attempting this pose.
His parents were on both sides of him to support him and to help support his head,
their hands have been removed in the editing process.

Such an adorable little boy!
I’m looking forward to his Smash the Cake session in December!

The pictures can also be viewed in my sneak peek album
or on my business page on Facebook.

On Saturday, a darling little girl and her parents came to the studio

Smash the Cake sessions are always super fun!

Her Mama did a fantastic job with the cake and the little cupcakes!
The cake smelled so yummy and obviously tasted yummy too!
