This little girl with the amazing hair and the great charisma is my sisters oldest daughter. Astrid is full of life and even though she is so young she knows exactly how to move in front of the camera. It might have something to do with the fact that through out her hole life I have been there, taking her portrait. Sometimes she borrows one of my cameras and takes my portrait instead. I had to be almost twice her age before I was allowed to play around with a camera. I guess that is the beauty of digital these days. When I was little it was expensive since we used film and around my house we took photos to document and not in the sense of art.
Astrid is constantly changing her mind when it comes to what she's gonna be when she grows up. More than once has she said that she would like to become a photographer. I would love that. I guess I just have to wait and see if that is what she actually becomes or if it will lean more towards riding instructor and football player.

Fanny and summer

Finally I got to shoot Fanny when there was no risk of here freezing to death. But instead something bit her so that her foot turned into a football. Poor girl, but she is a great sport so we kept on shooting for just a little bit longer even after that. Fanny has great energy and she really knows how to bring "it". It was fun and I hope you enjoy the pictures. This shoot was kind of a last minute thing and I am very happy with the results.

Special thanks to the makeup artist Sara Baldauf for making Fanny look even more beautiful.
