Our Team

Beauty has always surprised me. When you feel good on the inside, you feel good on the outside. It's a celebration of who you are, a discovery and a legacy. With nearly 5 years of experience making portraits for women and men, I see people realize their true beauty and brand. It is a gift. To show people how others see them and show it back to them. I can find it in everyone. Because you are unique. - KATI THOMAS

Story About einzikatig

As a full-time business woman, I know firsthand how day-to-day life can make you feel less-than glamorous. As a photographer, I have made it my mission to show you how beautiful you are – to help you reconnect with the woman or the man in your portraits and be awed by you.

My clients are not models – they are mums, dads, daughters, brothers, business men, housewives and grandmothers – everyday women and men like you, who decided to get in front of the camera and get some beautiful portraits. Most of them were avoiding the camera for years and realized that since their wedding photos, they haven’t had their professional photos taken and stopped existing in photos. I have heard it all before – „Oh no, not me – just children“,  „I’m not photogenic“, „Oh no, I hate having my photos taken“, „I need to loose weight“, „Oh no, I’m too old“ or „I feel awkward in front of the camera“.

The good news is, that you don’t need to worry about any of those, as it is my job as a photographer to make you relaxed in front of the camera and gently guide you through posing – regardless of your dress size or age. I create portraits that you’re proud of. The most beautiful photos that you’ve ever seen of yourself. Choose to exist in photographs for yourself, for your children and people who love you. One day these photographs will be priceless.

You are perfect right now, just as you are. Let your imagination run wild, this is the time to design and experience your dream photo shoot… whether you prefer to be photographed in my studio (located in Mannheim) or to have a magazine-style photoshoot in the location of your choice (Paris? Berlin? Amsterdam?).

So, how do you dream of being photographed? Call me today and together we’ll design your dream photoshoot and create the perfect package for you.

Ich hatte so großen Spaß beim Shooting mit Kati! Ich habe mich trotz meines Vollzeitjobs als Mama so wohl und schön gefühlt. Ich liebe meine Bilder wirklich. Sie sind eine Erinnerung, die ein Leben lang hält. Für mich und meine Lieben.

Mein Mann und meine Freunde sagen mir immer, dass ich schön bin, aber diese Fotos sind eine echte Bestätigung! Ich sehe aus wie ich, aber von innen heraus selbstbewusster und schöner.

Mentoring

Improve your skills

Do you feel a personal and professional shift inside of you that just hasn’t come to fruition? Are you feeling lost, frustrated, blocked, or uninformed in some area of your business? Are you ready to free yourself from the problems that are holding you back from a life and career you have always dreamed of? Perhaps we were meant to meet today!

A mentor is someone who uses their knowledge, experience and skill to help clients solve problems while providing them with tools for success. I would not be where I am now today without the help of mentors. I am a firm believer that investment in oneself is the key to a successful business and an abundant life.

I’m a pr manager, specialized in online marketing and social media, entrepreneur, blogger and photographer. Let me help you. I’d love to hear more about you!
