Family Feature – Sarah and Kevin

Basel Arelesheim Ermitage Bridge


A Basel Family Feature at the Ermitage Arlesheim

If you’ve read the “my why” section of my website, you’ll understand exactly why I love working with Basel expat families so much.  This gorgeous family is no different.

When we discussed where to go for our photoshoot together, Sarah was more interested in a lush green space verses the old town. Luckily living in Basel, I can deliver on both!!

The Ermitage in Arlesheim is a fantastic location for families. I have shot here before knowing I can find little pockets of light amongst the greenery. It is usually very quiet in the early mornings with just the odd nordic and dog walkers making the most of the tranquility. And tranquil it is! A beautiful lake, babbling brooks, fish to feed and ducks too! It’s natures playground right here in Basel on tram line 10.

With a variety of backdrops to use in a very small space, it allows young families to have shorter photo sessions. A total win for those with small toddlers and babies! The longest walk is from the car to the entrance which is about 600 meters. Or, if you take the tram, about one kilometre. And very stroller friendly!

I enjoyed my time with this beautiful family so much! I’ve said it before, but I really do get to work with THE BEST families Basel has to offer! Their boys were so delightful, spritely and easy going, turning on the charm for the camera at all the right times. And like us, they have made Basel their permanent home for now. How lucky we are to have people in our community like them too. Hashtag #happysigh.

If I can capture your family at the beautiful Ermitage in Arlesheim, please contact me through my website right here. I would be honoured to do so!

In the mean time, enjoy this gorgeous family and the time we shared together!!
