Impressions from a hot summer in Chicago, 2018. Here in Austria it’s already spring by now, the sun is out bringing back smiles and memories and there are still a couple of photos from last year I want to show. Last year… it has been quite turbulent, lots of traveling and unexpected changes in my life, overall it got a lot better though. I was able to spend much needed time with people I love, made some new friends and went on quite some adventures. The majority of these photos were taken in Chicago, where I feel effortlessly at home, one at Audiofeed (in Champaign-Urbana, IL). Some I took in Graz, Linz, Bad Leonfelden and in some woods on the countryside in Austria, some in Augsburg (Germany) and a couple in Venice (Italy). Looking through those brings back memories that you might not know of, but I still hope there’s at least one photo that makes you feel something.
Late last summer, we spent our vacation close to a little town in Greece. Even though I was sick for most of it, I did take a couple nice photos. Enjoy!
I had the honour to shoot for Kats Coffee Mud Body Scrub with a whole bunch of beautiful people. Models are Lilly, Joshua, Colleen, Shanna, Melissa, Elizabeth, Mikhel, Vicka, Songine and Lukas.
Before sunset Two things that finally happened in my last couple of days in Austria: 1. My beautiful friend Ligia visited and we took photos. 2. My sister Rosa & I found the time for a project long due.
leaving Austria I think the word I use most in this little blogpost texts is busy and the phrase you read most often is “sorry I didn’t post anything for a while”. Not that I’m ever really sorry, not lately, I live any enjoy my life to the fullest and yes, capturing and sharing moments with you is a great part of that but sometimes just experiencing things and making memories is more important. I am leaving tomorrow, once again, for Chicago. Planning on staying there a whole year, mixed feelings, of course, but excitement is the one I choose. The next weeks are gonna be exhausting in a good way and oh there are so many plans made and to be made… These photos are from a summer in Austria. A special post with impressions and artsy portraits from our family vacation in Croatioa is coming soon. Then it’s all Chicago (or the USA, let’s see how much I get to travel)… Merken Merken
sisters When I moved back to Graz I lived with my mom and sisters. Goes without saying we had lots of little photoshoots…
June When I was in Chicago once again in June, I felt like the luckiest girl there is. These beautiful people make me forget about time and whatever the future may hold, life is a bunch of precious moments and all of that makes me so happy. I will move there for a year in fall and there are no words for my excitement.
home I graduated from graphic design school and not having to study still feels surreal. Soon I will go home to live with my beautiful mom and sisters for the summer. I’m happy.
