Loving what I do!

My name is Kira and I pride myself on being a multi-passionate and multi-lingual global citizen who loves all things travel and photography. By day I love my work in international development -helping others while trying to make a positive impact. By night - photography steals my heart -the creative element that lights my soul on fire. I  absolutely love working with people in their most natural environments trying to capture raw & unfiltered emotion and reflecting genuine  human connection in order to tell powerful & meaningful stories.

My passion is documentary lifestyle photography where I focus on maximizing natural light & timeless portraiture to visually showcase those authentic & candid moments from everyday life that just should never be forgotten! My approach can be considered by some as 'spontaneous' and I often work with clients who want non-traditional photos, enjoy having fun, are all about letting the creativity flow in a truly organic way and who do not mind bending the rules or taking some risks to get 'the shot':) This paired with  a shared understanding of your vision allows me to tell your unique story! I am available for lifetsyle family &  portraiture sessions, personal branding, small intimate weddings and a variety of creative freelance projects within impact storytelling, culture & art and travel. Based in Aarhus and CPH Denmark and always up to meeting for a coffee or wine - but interested in international opportunities as well!


Thanks so much for stopping by


Every person, place and thing has a story, but none the why should your photography be?

Why Photography?


Life is beautiful - why not capture it?! I didn't always know I wanted to work with photography but somehow I always had a camera with me. I love the idea of freezing a moment in time - a moment that we want to hold on to and cherish forever capturing stories, culture, people, food, memories etc at home and from my travels around the world- from India to Nepal, Morocco, Cuba, Mexico, Vietnam, Cape Verde, Argentina, Antartica with many places in between!  


With me you will get  -the common, the uncommon, normal days, special occasions, familiar people and exotic locations. Most importantly - I will work to ensure that collaboration is fun, light-hearted and comfortable for all involved. My goal is to capture the best version of you!

What others are saying...!


Denise & Jesper

Because we never seem to have any good pictures together, we asked Kira to be our wedding anniversary photographer. She was amazing to work with! She was patient and worked hard to put us at our ease in front of the camera. She was very knowledgeable about lighting and all the technical details critical to good photography & editing which makes her the consummate professional she is. We would highly recommend using Kira to help beautifully capture your special moments! -


Jenny & Lórand

Kira is a passionate photographer and we are impressed that she managed to capture so many un-staged moments. She made us feel very comfortable - it felt like a special date rather than posing for a photo shoot. It was incredible fun that is framed for eternity.


Rikke & Søren

We chose Kira for our wedding pictures and are so glad we did! Kira did a great job making us feel comfortable and captured our happy and bubbly mood in a very natural way. Kira listened to our thoughts and wishes and also brought her own creative ideas to the table. The result is a unique collection of photos that we will always cherish. Thank you!


Family Braumann

Give it a try -it is so much fun! My family has already had 3 amazing and very professional sessions with Kira - a couples shoot, in-home family lifestyle session and I used her for photographs for my new yoga website. Not only is she a talented photographer, every shoot has been exciting experience with excellent results and memories.I love Kira's flexibility and how she is creatively integrating ideas from everywhere around.

I would love to be your photographer and document your story- let's collaborate!
