I'm Tina Sosna,
photographer and illustrator for my own stationery brand 'lovelyenvelopes'.
I currently live in Jena, a small city in Germany, with my love Florian and our cat Willow.
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 pictures 8 years ago and are still very passionated in working with both analog and digital cameras.
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!
