JOURNEY AS PHOTOGRAPHER
Welcome to my photography page! My name is Petja, a Finnish portrait photographer based in Munich, Germany. I am specialised in newborn, baby, maternity and family photography as well as business portraits.
Journey to photography started already when I was around 7 years old with my mom in a photography course. After many years I started to study in a photography school in Finland along my work in telecom business. But soon after I moved to Mexico due to my job and needed to quit my studies. I continued self-studying and attending various international photography courses still until today.
While moving around the globe, I gathered expressive international exposure and experience in Mexico, Vietnam, Kenya, United Arab Emirates, Finland and Brazil. During those years in Brazil I held photography workshops to other photographers and was a guest speaker in Feira Fotografar 2015 congress (São Paulo, Brazil) and Newborn Secret congress (Florianópolis, Brazil).
STYLE AND VISION
I love photographing tiny newborns and real connections between the family members. Besides the artistic eye a newborn photographer needs enormous peacefulness and most importantly patience and these are some of my strengths. Some parents even call me the Baby Whisper because of my calming effect on babies. I have been photographing newborns since 2010 and enjoy seeing my tiny clients grow and come back year after year. There are unique beauty within every baby and family and this is also what I want to capture in my photos.
When choosing a photographer, it is important to choose someone whose artistic vision and personality are a good fit for you. My style is pure, simple, clean and classic. I firmly believe in the ‘less is more’ philosophy allowing your baby and your family to be the focus of every image.
Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoy my work! Maybe we will meet some day.
With love. Your photographer
