Jenna Reich – Photographer » Birth and newborn photographer based in Frankfurt, Germany.

The sun has returned and so has my photography spirit. It’s been difficult teaching and still setting aside time for photography.

I feel like sharing my last two weeks as I emerge from the deep dark depths of photographic depression.

After next week’s workshop with Alain Laboile I’m certain to feel passionate again. (at least that is my wish of all wishes) He’s been my favorite since the very beginning. After following his work for the past 7 years, I will finally have his words to accompany the images I’ve so admired. It’s going to be life-changing, I know it.

Paris, I’m ready for you.

Frankfurt Newborn Photographer

Let’s begin by discussing newborn photos, shall we?

I see many Frankfurt moms opt in for the hospital photos offered directly after their baby is born. But, can we please talk about why that’s NOT the best way to spend your money?

While I can see how the hospital photos seem convenient, practical and easy, there are better options for you parents. Still, consider an in-home newborn session from Life Aglow because newborn sessions can be so much more!

Why You Should Hire Me as Your Newborn Photographer in Frankfurt

  1. You want your images to express how you feel, not just how you look.
  2. Home is quiet, comfortable and private. It’s where you can be yourself.
  3. Professional photography is something you value.
  4. Capturing the connection between you and your baby (and other family members, including siblings) is important to you.
  5. You want time to feed, change and nurture your baby during the session.
  6. Deciding the time of your session ensures that everyone is available and rested.
  7. You want authentic imagery, rather than generically posed photos. (No baby in a basket pictures please!)

Let’s end the cycle of mediocre hospital pictures! I will happily come to your home and customize a session for you and your family. Let us create images that show how much you love being a mom in a comfortable and honest way.

Finally, I’d love for you to have a look at one of my most recent newborn sessions to get an idea of what you could be missing out on if you decide to buy those hospital pictures.

I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet family in their home in Karlsruhe. It was such a beautiful session! I love when older siblings get to show off their baby brothers and sisters!

greater good:
Actively participating with accountability in the positive growth of social, economic and political change.
#greatergood
During the last two years of watching the tension and growing divide in our country as the presidential campaign unfolded, I’m feeling as if my naïvety has fallen to the floor in a great heaping pile. It’s kind of uncomfortable.
After the election, I thought my country had just died. I’m not even exaggerating when I say I went through all the stages of mourning. I kind of felt like throwing in the towel and saying, “Ok, fuck it! You win! Our country is doomed to a collective mentality of hate and loathing.”
But, thankfully that feeling has passed. Because you know what, that way of thinking will only add to the problem we’re facing.
The thing is, we are all so much better than that.
There’s something we CAN do. In fact there are endless things we can do. We have so little time and there are many ways we can impact this world in a positive way.
Not sure how? Check out my ever-evolving list:
I CAN volunteer with my kids.
I CAN offer my time to a neighbor who needs help.
I CAN help extended family members who are struggling.
I CAN buy less and quit supporting consumerism.
I CAN shop locally.
I CAN pick up trash when I’m walking to work.
I CAN take shorter showers.
I CAN vote in every (including local) election.
I CAN stand up for someone.
I CAN form alliances with friends/family who don’t share my political views.
I CAN attend protests that support my views.
I’ll admit, these actually sound so easy. But, I promise they’re not! How easy is it for me to have my entire family make an Amazon wish list, throw those exact items in my cart and “BAM”, done. Shopping locally isn’t the easiest way. These “easy” tasks take work and effort. Admittedly, some of them are already making me cringe. (I mean, I freaking love long showers)
But, we have to get uncomfortable.
We have to wake up. Quit blubbering. Stop spreading hate and reading article after article, that outlines our rapid decline to Hell.
We must unite.
We must begin a ripple…  of love, kindness…
For the #greatergood.
Join the community of #greatergood by photographing your steps toward positive change.  Then, tag it #greatergood and inspire someone else to follow suit.
Accountability. That’s the first step.
Start in your own family. Then, increase your reach. Invite others to join.
This is synergy. This is community. This is The United States of America, damn it.
Let’s quit crying and DO something.
Together.
#greatergood

After taking an amazing film course this Spring, I was lucky enough to walk away with a tremendously beautiful film of my own.

I’ve been reluctant to share it, not knowing if filming families is something I would stick with and even offer to my clients. However, after a year, I’m still filming and would love to begin offering this to you, my clients.

THIS session rocked my world for so many reasons, but mainly because these people were a blast to hang out with.

I kind of forgot I was even hired to be there, honestly.

Photographing them was such a dream because they were open and relaxed. Our morning was full of light saber battles (which, oh.my.god. this guy had the real deal), guitar jams, kissing baby toes, and adults trying to fit on tricycles.

What more could one want?

Anyone else want a totally rad and super relaxed newborn session? Let’s make it happen.

*Now booking film (as in video) sessions, too. Contact me for more details. You can see an example of my personal family film here.
