Portrait Shooting

Portraits: Lakeside Shooting Monika

Portrait Shooting, Linz, Ausee,

(Runterscrollen für die deutsche Version) If you follow me on Instagram (andreamst) or Snapchat (as_photo) you’ll aready have seen a sneak peek of this shoot, but for all the others, here’s a glimple into my latest shooting! This has to have been one of my favorite shootings up to date. The weather was gorgeous, the light was perfect and shooting lakeside,… always a win in my book! Continue Reading

Maternity | Capturing Memories

(Runterscrollen für die deutsche Version)  As Ed Sheeran would say… „…we keep this love in a photograph…“. Since I am not quite as lyrical as Ed, I’ll stick to telling you how awesome I think it is to be able to capture milestones like this one for my friends. Just the thought, that maybe a few years from now these photos will be shown to the tiny human (we don’t know if it’s going to be a boy or a girl yet so I’ll keep lovingly refering to him/her as tiny human) who’s about to be born into this world makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. :) Continue Reading

Chances are I’m one of the last people to find out about Salon Hochstetter, a pretty awesome concept store in the heart of the Tabakfabrik in Linz, but so what, better late than never, right?

Time is not my friend these days! Between work, private life and training for the upcoming Linz Marathon I feel like there are not enough hours in the day to get everything done. The most tragic part is that I didn’t even get to properly try out my new camera up until now!  Continue Reading


Weekend Vibes

I apologize for the quality of this iPhone picture, but it perfectly captures yesterday’s trip into the mountains. Crisp temperatures, clear skies, and bright sunshine all the way! I went to Hinterstoder to watch the Ski Worldcup with some friends and colleagues and spend the day soaking up some much needed vitamin D. I completely forgot how much I love being in the mountains but I’m already scheming on how to get back there asap. :) Continue Reading
