Perth Lifestyle Photography

Meet the Photographer

My name is Anika (Anni for short), and I am a professional newborn photographer based in Perth, Western Australia. When I was a little girl, my mum gave me the nickname “Annilein”, so it seemed only natural to use that fond childhood memory as the name for my own photography business!

I was born and raised in Germany, and before I came to Perth my mum said to me, “Don’t you fall in love over there!” But guess what – I did! And that’s why I decided to stay, after finding the missing piece of my puzzle right here. I love my life in Australia, although I do miss my friends overseas.

I have a few German qualities that I have taken with me though; I am hardworking, punctual, and very dedicated, and it is those qualities that make me strive for the best with everything that I do. I am also outgoing, but sometimes a little shy. I love to laugh, I can be serious, I aim for the best, I can cope with the worst, I try to eat mainly organic, and I can’t resist chocolate! And, ah yes, I would like to meditate but I can’t handle being bored. I mean, how could any woman keep their mouth shut for more than 5 minutes!?
