A couple of weeks ago I had the great pleasure of having the beautiful Helena Blöcker in front of my lens again. I've been knowing Helena ever since she performed on stage in the musical Rebecca in Stuttgart four years ago. Helena loves life - and it loves her right back. Helena is definitely a photographer's dream. She's got the looks, the confidence (which is in my opinion the most sexy asset a woman can have), is full of humor and easy peasy to work with. Not only when it comes to posing she's a total pro. The day of our shoot it was extremely windy, and too cold for my taste: 9 °C! Not once did she complain that she was cold, although she certainly had tons of goosebumps. This girl is da bomb. On and off stage. And especially in front of my camera.
Please enjoy the wonderfulness and beauty that is Helena - and be head over heels. Happy Monday, everyone!
This month is all about falling leaves, cozy sweaters, hot chocolate, yummy pumkin (or in my case „carrots & ginger") soup, and celebrating down syndrome awareness month ... at least in some parts of this world. It's the eigth year we've been publishing our „A little extra" wall calendar, and every time this abundance of love and sunshine arrives hot off the press I get super excited and giddy with delight about holding this goodness in my hands.
The wall calendar can be directly ordered at the Neufeld Verlag or via Amazon. 13 cool and cute rockstars with a little extra will 365 x make your day next year, guaranteed!! And YOU guys always make my day!!! Q
„You're braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think." (A. A. Milne) How often do we think we are incapable of doing this or that. Or that we're not good enough. So today be willing to aim higher than it seems possible. Push yourself that scares the living daylights out of you. Be fearless and be bold just like a vampire who approaches garlic. ;-)
Please don't laugh when I admit that I'm a huge Heidi-Fan. No, not as in Germany's next topmodel. I am talking about the popular Japanese anime television series which was created back in the 1970s. The sweet girl Heidi who lives with her grandfather „Almöhi" in the beautiful Swiss Alps and who makes everyone's heart melt. The girl who has the most contagious smile and makes you leave happier than you came.
Well when cute little Greta Q and her wonderful Mom Petra came all the way from the Austrian Tirol mountains for a photo shoot, I clearly had a déja vu of the sweetest kind. This girl and Heidi are so much alike. I immediately fell in love with Greta. She's full of beans. She was running around (I finally did some workout trying to catch her! ;-) as the happiest girl of this planet. Like Heidi she lights up and soothes all the people and animals around her with her enthusiastic, generous and wonderful zest for life. When I came home that day I was still on cloud nine. To see and feel how proud her mom is of her, and how much she obviously enriches everyone's life around her, made me see all the good in this world again.
Please enjoy a few images of these insanely wonderful people - this is exactly why I love love love my job!
