When Sandra picks up her camera and looks through the viewer, she sees the world in a different light. And she wants you to see that, too! Capturing the magic of the moment, and making emotions visible to others is her goal, and she is fantastic in achieving it. The tear running down someone's face, when they see their baby for the first time... The connection between two people, who just got married... The child who pushes their nose into a horse's neck to say 'hi' to their best friend... I don't know how, but she knows this moments before they are happening, and she will capture them for you!
Because of her story, she knows, that it is hard sometimes to find magic and beauty in everyday life. Social pressures and high expectations towards ourself let us often forget how beautiful we really are. This is why she is supporting non-profits all across the country with her pictures. Please contact her, if you have a project that could use a little magic!
Sandra is the mom of a four year old boy and a seven year old transgender girl. Her life was taking an unexpected turn after her husband passed away 2014 and she found herself in a foreign country, responsible for her two little ones.
Because giving up is never an option for her, she founded her own businesses, from Michigan, over North Carolina, to Texas! With passion and expertise, she is guiding families, and people who want to support families as doula, doula trainer, and sleep coach and postpartum specialist.
Her love for photography started in her childhood. Never taking simple portraits, but always looking behind the scenes, capturing the emotions behind the planning - THAT is what she is fabulous at! From weddings, over birth photography, to capturing the soul of the animals that touch her heart, get lost in her pictures and the stories they tell!
She did not only create a career with photography for herself, but also found a way to give back to the community, by supporting non-profits all across the country. The combination of steampunk with fairytales is pretty much summing up who she is: You will find her one day with Mickey Mouse ears on her head and polka dot painted fingernails, and the next day you will see her in a corset and the highest heels she could find. She might also clean out a horse stall in it...
She will surprise you... Let her do some magic!
