a decade of experience.

A decade of experience in photography, a degree in business and marketing and heart-filling inspiring long-term travels around the globe. Passion for teaching the art of yoga. And a clear vision and experience of what it means to slow down and live intentionally. That‘s the purpose: to use all of this to help you preserve moments of love, to heal and nurture whatever it is you have your heart and mind set on. I will assist, help and provide with all I‘ve got and an open heart and an available soul.

Through photography, yoga classes and workshops on and off the mat for photography, yoga and living. 

Lots of love and light. - Julia Vanessa.




"And there are authentic real and messy memories with lots of love and laughter captured, big hugs and the feeling of belonging stability and home, yoga, meditation and ritual, creating as a team whatever makes us feel grounded and connected, respect, gratitude and love for each other, tons of sunshine and positive attitude, devotion, integrity and giving, road trips, sunshine, barefoot on green grass, toes in ocean sand, touching waves, growth, lightness and ease, birthdays overflowing with thought care and joy and tons of giving and receiving, ink, some more ink, lot of candle light and fresh linen, cozy comfy, tidy, structured, minimalistic yet aesthetically pleasing, sustainable surroundings, endless sunset magic, crisp sunrises in fresh morning air, deep moments in-between, freedom and being close, full of life, relaxed family holidays and christmases, homegrown veggies and herbs, market greens and handpicked flowers, a fire place and wooden table for intimate and well curated gatherings with loads of yummy ideally homegrown food and a close tribe of friends and family, beautiful souls with fire in their hearts and truly caring for each other, supporting growth and accompanying every step of the path, lots of beauty, respectful mindful interaction and deep truthful conversations, strength and the courage to live, speak and seek truth and love, (un-)schooled free spirited worry-free kids, a therapy puppy, a place where all this comes together in form of a (tiny) home, in yoga sessions, workshops, photoshoots, client meetings, all floating with ease, joy and lightness, money flowing as a symbol of energy coming in and going out and coming in, water activities, gatherings and music all over the place in all kinds and forms, and lots of sweeps-me-off-my-feet and keeps me grounded balanced, respectful, nurturing love in all relationships and especially that romantic one that is stronger, deeper and more stable every day, because we affirm so and know our needs and are able to express them with empathy  and compassion. Thank you for being a part of all this."
