“Be Fearless – Be BOLD – Be You”

Guten Tag and Welcome!

My name is Iris, and I am thankful that you have stopped by my photography site. Born in Salzgitter, raised in Bremerhaven (both Germany), I now reside with my husband, and two spoiled-rotten chihuahuas in Arizona.
I drink too much coffee, enjoy a good book, listen to music and audio books when editing my images. I feel most comfortable in jeans and sneakers.

My passion is to chase the light, finding beauty in the concrete jungle in the Metro Phoenix area. Although salt-water is still running through my veins, I have become accustomed to the beauty in the desert. However, you won’t find me often in the desert.

My greatest joy is to equip my Canon camera with either the Tamron Macro lens, or any Lensbaby optics to create fine art images.

After attending a photography conference in Seattle in October 2016, I felt compelled changing my direction from family portraits to beauty and fashion. If you are a ‘fresh face’ model, and need some images for your model portfolio, I would love to hear from you. In addition to head shots, I also offer model coaching.
