I'm Tina Sosna,
photographer and illustrator for my own stationery brand 'lovelyenvelopes'.
I currently live in a small village in the middle of Germany, with my love Florian and our cat Willow. Here we found our home in the little house of my childhood with a beautiful garden and lots of forest, fields and the river that surrounds us.
My work is about finding the beauty in our everyday life and conserving it. It can be a special light situation, someone talking or moving, a very sad movie, a place, a scent from my childhood in a small village, a plant, tea and book afternoons, a walk in the mountains or a swim in the lake or a certain song that inspires me to do what I love.
I started taking analog photographs 10 years ago and are still very passionated in working with both analog and digital cameras as well as filming little short films about the beauty of every day life.
Since the beginning I experimented with taking self portraits. For me that was the best way to completely understand Photography by being involved in all parts that make a photograph a photograph.
Learning this way I now know how to make my models feel comfortable in front of the camera even if being photographed might not be their type of thing. I love to have a chat or share a cup of tea with you before the shoot to make you feel the most you in the images.
So if you are a person or brand that is interested in a natural and cozy image style that can transport a certain mood let's connect!
