Hi, I capture

this is me

〰️

I have photographed families since 15 years and I love what I do! When I don't have a camera in my hands, I am probably immersing in nature and spending time with my own little family. I was raised in Austria, I am of Indian descent and my husband is from Byron Bay.

The Experience

 

〰️

my photo style

My photos are a mastery of the soft, organic, classic and timeless look that film would provide. I draw my inspiration from natural light and human connection. I am interested in telling stories, in showing the subtleties, the underlying levels of being in present moments. I make sure my work is reflective of who you  are and how things actually felt. 

 

here to help / location + ideal time

I love photoshoots out in nature the most, especially in open spaces and lots of natural light. I know lots of good outdoor photo locations and happy to give advice. I also like to ask, where you love to spend time the most and we just go there, so it stays authentic. This can be a specific beach, forest walking trail or playground or you just cuddling in bed at home. Shooting photographs in your own home is especially suiting for newborn photography. I recommend taking photos either early morning or late afternoon ( 1-2 hours before Sunset), which will provide the best natural lighting. Once you booked me, I will also give stying advice on what to wear and what colours and textures fit the most. 

 

unposed / true to you

I try to sustain a perfect balance between giving gentle suggestions, when needed and letting it flow naturally - no posed moments or awkward expressions. My style is heavily focused on the real moment. I  just want you to have a good time being you.

a friend 

I want to see us as friends. It might sound a bit weird and cheesy. I just stress the importance of connection, because I make my best work for mothers and families I consider to be friends. I am trying to hold space for you to feel free, beautiful, comfortable, safe, goofy or whatever is alive in you.

"Devi I seriously cannot thank you enough! These are so beautiful and we will treasure them always. You are amazingly talented and we are so grateful."

"We are thrilled with the photos. We found the photo shoot experience fun and relaxed as well as very professional. Clearly Devi has a lot of experience in getting the best out of children."

"Devi we are so happy, such a special gift you have given me. I love the photos, I have so many favourites, but really I can't decide, they are all beautiful. Thank you so much!"

invest in memories

life doesn't wait

 

Especially after becoming a mother I have really understood the value of documenting our lives and the lives of the ones we love. Looking back at memories is precious, and I would like to give you photos to look back to as well.

Maternity

 

A session all about Mamas and your journey to motherhood. A celebration of the joy, mystery, love, beauty, power and sensitivity of a baby in your womb.  Usually photos are just about Mamas, but partners and children are welcome as well. The photos are made at one location of choice. I help with location scouting if needed.
