A few years ago, after the mother-son dance at a wedding, my second shooter came up to me with tears in her eyes and we talked a bit about how shooting a wedding after having a baby feels different. Back then I only knew a little sliver of what she was talking about.
Now I have two boys of my own, and since they were born, I watch so much closer the relationships in front of my camera. I have a new understanding of the importance my job holds. Not just for my clients, but also for their family and their friends.
My job is to capture real moments of you and the ones you love. Celebrating commitments to each other, creating memories of your family, and making art to be printed, hung on the wall, and passed down for generations to come.
“We worked with Maike on two different photo shoots, our maternity photos and our daughter’s newborn photos. Both shoots turned out amazing!! Maike was very easy to work with, flexible with meeting times, and she provided a lot of good info leading into each session so we knew what to wear and what to expect in general. I wish we had known about her earlier because I would have loved for her to shoot our wedding. We will definitely be using her again in the future!”
