Getaway to the Sea – Yoga Retreat #1 – Sept. 2019

This September was a very special one for me. I again took a long train ride from Southern Germany to the Atlantic Coast in Western France. Where, on the island of Île de Ré, cooked, taught and lead a week long Yoga and Photography Retreat,  Getaway to the Sea.

This year I had the pleasure of working with my dear Friend Julia Vanessa Utsch, a brilliant photographer and Yin Yoga instructor. Along with our small group of guests, we spend 8 beautiful days outdoors from sunrise to sunset. Stretching, meditating, walking, cycling, photographing and cooking. On the beach, in the forest, in the garden and on the terrace.

It is hard to describe a week like this in words. But I will try to do my best, and let the photos do the rest of the talking. It was slow, calm, curing, present, and resting. It was warm and refreshing, grounding and eye opening. It was exciting, joyous, and uplifting. It was many many things. And all of them positive. Thank you ladies for all of your good vibes, trust, and commitment to our project. We love how it turned out, and hope you do too. I learned more about myself and about others, and am so inspired to do it all over again. To share this place and our knowledge and love for life with one another.

Below are some images from the week on this beautiful island that I have learned to call one of my many homes. If you are interested in joining us, please SAVE THE DATE May 30th – JUNE 6th 2020. Julia and I will be leading our second retreat during this time, in the same location, and would love for you to join us. I will be posting more information on my website and social media channels soon. Click here for more information on Julias site. ENJOY!

My approach to photography is simple and pure. I use only natural light to create an image; and work hard to develop an artistic photo, whether it be for a client or as a self project. I do not care about staging shots, excessive make up, and set ups. I capture what is there, with love for that special moment. With an advanced diploma in photography from Canada, I choose to follow my dream to work as a freelance photographer. With over 10 years in experience, I can capture your special moments, smiling faces, products or food in a simplistic, colourful and uncomplicated way. I photograph with my heart and believe in sustainability, conscious consumption and responsibility. When you book a photography session, purchase an image, or participate in a workshop or retreat, you are supporting social organizations and projects. I run my small business on green electricity, all print material is climate-neutral and supports other charitable projects for people and the environment. This is a very important concept for me to follow. Every daily decision and choice we make, has the potential to create a cleaner and happier community and world. If you are interested in purchasing fine art photographs or my cookbook, hoping to have images taken or just want to connect, I am happy to make a new friend.
