Hello friends of Munichmom. Have you noticed something cool going on around our blog? Well, have you? We have been adjusting the site, cleaning things up and making improvements. One of the best improvements that we have made are of the wonderful photos being displayed on our page.
Those photos have come to us by way of collaboration with the wonderful Munich based photographer, Kristin Speed. Kristin is an expat like us, and many of you. She hails from New Jersey in the United States. She has been living in Munich now for over a decade.
I first met Kristin three years ago when we moved to Munich. We were looking to celebrate our move with family photos. I spent so many days searching online for the perfect photographer to match the vision of what I wanted. I came upon Kristin’s site and fell in love with her photos. Particularly the ones of families that photographed in the Englischen Garten. At that time I was spending so much of my time there with the kids and my husband, that I felt that it was a place that I wanted to be photographed in as well.
It was a plus that she was American, because being newly here, my German was atrocious. It still is, but it is better ;). She was so easy to talk to and she had all of these great ideas of where in the garden to be photographed. Unfortunately our first attempt at a photo shoot went south. As soon as we got to her perfect spot, the sky erupted and we were caught in a down pour of rain. It was hilarious trying to wrangle a 6-year-old a 3-year-old and a puppy through the mud. She took it in stride and laughed the entire trip back to the car.
Our second attempt was much more successful. It was a beautiful fall day, that gave us some of our most memorable family photos to date.
Recently Kristin participated in a fundraiser that we covered on munichmom for Daniela(http://wp.me/p5bcsF-fr). She was one of the volunteer photographers that worked on shooting families to raise money for Daniela’s surgery.
We also worked together again in May for photos for my anniversary. Perfect photos once again.
Munichmom is so happy to have Kristin joining in collaboration with us. We know you will enjoy her work just as much as we do.
If you would like to work with Kristin Speed, then please use this information to reach out to her. Stop by her webpage and take a look at her work. You will not be disappointed.
