I have been the owner of the court photographers for over 22 years. For over 22 years I have taken countless pictures of people. A great passion of mine is (and always has been) to teach women something about themselves with the help of my pictures: to understand their own beauty, to be satisfied with themselves, to feel great about themselves, to heal old wounds and to come out of it stronger to go out for a shoot. Of course, the best with years of after-effects 🙂
During the shootings, I often shed tears with “my” wives when we could see the positive development together. Those moments when the facial expression and body language relax when looking at the pictures and joy and happiness are felt: priceless for both sides. I enjoy motivating other people to look at them lovingly through my camera and to capture these moments. I’m now a proud 54 years old, and I’ve had quite an eventful “half” of my life, both professionally and privately.
I only ever had pictures taken of me when I “had to” for our website, with my children as gifts, for publications. Now, for the first time, through a private experience, I had come to a point where it became important for me to accept myself more as a woman, to finally want to be satisfied with myself and to look at myself more lovingly than all the years before . The decision for my first private shooting was made! I chose a day with Emely, Kerstin did my make-up. We’re training together! She has been doing this for special occasions for 20 years and has accompanied me for so long through thick and thin, through good and not so good phases.
I was pretty excited, I really hadn’t thought of it beforehand, after all I’m an old hand at the job and have unlimited trust in Kerstin and Emely. When shooting in an abandoned swimming pool in Berlin (yes, I love these exciting, broken and colorful locations), I was initially more tense than I thought. I was suddenly also afraid of being confronted with something I didn’t want to see, possibly finding out that I don’t like myself the way I come across. Emely then showed me the first recordings very quickly and I was surprised and enthusiastic. From then on I enjoyed the shoot to the fullest. Emely has such a wonderful way of letting me be who I am and to put myself in the right light unnoticed and to pay attention to the right environment. You can feel so wonderfully comfortable with her! Nothing restricted me, on the contrary! It felt so good to be able to experience it myself. It has done so much to me. I really like looking at myself in the pictures and I even think I’m beautiful in some of them.
I can look at my changes lovingly and with pride and I have become even more aware of how many beautiful things we can experience and show in our profession and how much responsibility we have for the souls of our customers. I would be happy to show you a small selection, everything is not intended for the public.
Thanks to Micha for the great conversation before my shoot, thanks to Kerstin for the wonderful make-up and hairstyling and THANKS to you dear Emely, you have changed my little “Christine world” for the better! You will always have a place in my heart for that.
Well, tears wiped away and let’s go 🙂 After all, I would like to make other people happy again today!
