Businesses By Local Parents

So many NW8-mums & dads have amazing businesses and I want to honour them here. This is not an advertising page, nor is it a page full of unknown businesses and entrepreneurs. I know all these parents personally and am a customer.

To appear on this page is by invitation.

Jeanette Rauch Photography

I am Jeanette. I am a photographer and a mum of two, I love my family, good food, travelling the world, exposing my children to other cultures and photography. I started taking pictures when I was in High School as an after-school activity. We had a dark room in our school, so we learnt how to actually “take and develop” pictures and I fell in love with photography and have been photographing ever since.

Whenever there was an event or when we went on vacation I was the one taking the pictures… It feels like I must have taken a million by now. But the moment that I decided, that I wanted to take the step into professional photography was when I was getting married and was looking for a wedding photographer. I really did not like most of the photographers I had come across. I thought my pictures looked much better, maybe I should do this professionally as many of my friends had suggested all along. So I started to take courses at university and with other professional photographers in London, Frankfurt and Hong Kong.

When my son was born, the wish of doing this professionally intensified; I just loved taking pictures of him and those little moments that were so special and would otherwise be forgotten.
For me photography is a way of capturing those magical little moments forever. In 20 years from now, when my kids are all grown up, I can look at these little moments and the memories of how they were when they were little will come flooding back. With my photography I want to do the same for other people; be this capturing their little babies, or them being pregnant or getting married. I believe it is important to capture emotions in a picture and I would love to be the one you would entrust with this.
Looking forward to meeting you and capturing your special moments.
Jeanette
