Hi, my name is Zaza! 

Originally from Germany - born to an American and a German - I've spent my life moving around frequently. I feel most at home when I am on the road capturing new experiences and visuals with all of my senses. 
Currently enjoying life in Colorado with my two pups and my daughter, and travel frequently back to NYC. 

Clicking the exposure button is my favorite. Photographs are akin to journal entries. Starting with disposable cameras, these little wonder machines have accompanied me since Kindergarten. Fast forward over 30 years later, and I feel so fortunate to have been able to share my passion with my clients by capturing their visual stories for the past decade. 

My goal is for our session to serve as a future archive of memories while being a healing and empowering experience. As a Spiritual Counselor, Color Therapist and Reiki Practitioner, I automatically use energy and color to work with my clients. I want my clients to feel comfortable, happy and vibrant while looking back at their photos and feeling their best selves! 

I use the advantage of natural light, colors and architectural elements to frame my subjects. Color has always had a profound impact on me. You know what I mean- the way it evokes emotions, brings up memories, and sets the tone to any surrounding.  
Colors have been shown to change alpha brain waves in studies. When color is broadcasted from ours eyes to our brain, the brain releases hormones affecting how we feel. Most importantly, teh varying frequency of colors can aid in healing!

My synesthesia is the defining catalyst in how I view color. Being immersed in the world of color theorist Johannes Itten at a young age left its mark on all of my creative pursuits. 

My sessions are customizable, very personal, and tailored to my clients' preferences and needs.

Any inquiries or comments? I'm really good at chatting and am continuously looking to get involved in fantastical photo adventures!
