Last week it was that time again: we hosted another Workshop. And let me tell you, it really is a work-shop where you have to do some work. Ever since we’ve started this new concept last year, I’ve been so much happier and at peace with myself. If you’d like to know more about this new kind of workshop, read all about it here. And please read carefully, be warned – this workshop is not for everyone. ;)
It has been another incredible and very intense time for all of us and I am thankful for this year’s attendees! For their strength and their vulnerability. For their will to open up and dig deep into who they are and who they want to be. Without their courage, this would not work.
Special thanks to Mario, who attended the workshop last year and asked us if he could help out this time. We were more than happy to have him! He also took a lot of the behind-the-scenes shots in this post!
A big big big Thank you to the amazing supporters of this Workshop who helped make it what it is: The perfect location Maisenburg, the gorgeous dress designer Elfenkleid, my talented Jessy and Gisela, who provided the stunning bouquet (that’s still grazing my home).
I am very happy to have had you on board, knowing that you believe and value the same things as me. No words are enough to say Thank you!
Enjoy this insight into 2 beautiful and amazing days….

A big and vital part of the workshop consists in taking time to analyze yourself, answer questions and write down a whole lot of stuff about your life – I love that quite time of reflection.

At my workshop everybody gets complete alone time when it comes to the photoshoot. It is very important to me to help every single attendee to fin their own voice and give them space to be alone with their camera and the people in front of it.
After everybody’s shooting time, I showed them how and why I create the photos that I love.
And these are the brave and strong women who joined me in the adventure of finding their own creative path. Check out their work and what they have to say about their experience:
Thank you Aline, for being your wonderful unique self and making everybody laugh! Thank you Anja for being strong and beautiful and show us who you are. Thank you Dani, for showing us how great life is barefoot and for being everybody’s mum :) Nina, you are astonishing, strong and beautiful and I love your thirst for life! Milena, thank you for your sweet spirit, your kindness and your lovely gift!
