I can shoot anything, and LOVE doing so!
Born in Kassel, Germany (yep! that's where my parents got my name...after the city where i was born)..I moved here by the age of 2 and have lived and worked in southern California all my life. I love to travel and am always out doing location shoots, destination weddings all over the country, or models in my studio. I have a large private studio in Orange County, California and am ready at all times for product photography, personal creative portraits and family photos. I love to meet new people, and am what they call ....a "People Person". I would love to chat with you about whatever photos you may want or need, over a nice cup of strong coffee.
Have a fantastic day, and thank You for looking through my images. Enjoy!
