I'm the first person to say that I am NOT the photographer for everyone. My desire is to capture real connection and joy. I don't do stiff and awkward poses so if you're looking for a traditional session where everyone sits still and looks directly at the camera the whole time, that's not me.
I work best with fun loving, adventurous couples who are always up for a new experience and a laugh. If you love getting playful and silly with each other and always have your eye on the next awesome adventure you can take together, look no further, we're going to get on like a house on fire.
I offer three unique session experiences that all include beautiful Swiss locations. You can find all the details on these offerings right here.
Honestly, the sooner the better!
In addition to my family & couple photos, I keep very busy making gorgeous school photos for a handful of private schools all over Switzerland, limiting the number of weekends I'm available for family sessions, especially in Spring.
Mountain sessions are held in Autumn with limited availability. Please join my mountain session waitlist to be the first to know when I open bookings for these sessions.
City sessions are available year round and usually book out three months in advance.
Summer is a wonderful time in the alps, for sure! Endless blue skies and emerald green grass are a photographers dream.
What is not so wonderful for my photos is the haze. When it is very warm in Switzerland, the haze increases and the vibrancy of the valley and mountain views is lost behind the opaque haze.
We could always time our session for golden hour when the light is better. However most mountain lifts close by 5:30pm, a good three hours before the best light of the day. With that in mind, I highly recommend staying overnight on top of the mountain at one of the Berggasthaus' in the alps. Let's arrange a time to chat and I would be happy to talk you through some locations and options.
When you book with me, you will receive a comprehensive Preparation and Style Guide that I wrote especially for my clients. It is full of helpful style tips and covers colours, patterns, fabrics and accessories.
As you pull your outfits together, you are always welcome to send me a snapshot of what you've put together if you feel you need a second opinion.
The best style advise I can give you though is to always be yourself! Now is not the time to flirt with a new style, your comfort zone is the best zone!
Oh, if I had a dollar for every time a someone has said this to me! It is totally normal to feel this way and wonder if you too can look like the couples here.
Most people do not know what to do in front of the camera and are somewhat camera shy. And honestly, most sessions start slowly as we work our way through the first few posing set ups. That's why I get most of my still, look at the camera photos done early one in the session.
Each one of the photos on my website was created by me using a prompt or pose I give my couples to react or perform to. I give heaps of encouragement and feedback during the session too. If you come with an open heart and willingness to get the job done, then this is 100% for you.
A good weather forecast is the final detail we need to fall into place for our session.
As we close in on our scheduled session date, I am watching the weather very closely to determine if it will be fine enough to proceed with our plans. It is very rare to be completely rained out of our planned session date, however if it's not looking great in the days leading up to our session, I am in constant communication with you to reschedule either our time and/or our session date.
I strongly reccommned keeping your calendar free the entire weekend of our scheduled shoot just in case we need to be flexible with our time because of less than ideal weather.
I believe a professional photo session is an investment that only grows in value over time.
My fee includes so much more than just a photo sitting. A session with me is a full service experience. So, although my fees are not cheap, I do provide great value by taking care of all the finer details for you!
My packages not only include a full gallery of kick arse photos of your family, but they also include the item you want most, the digital files with full print release.
You can download my Pricing Guide here for immediate access to my collections and all the goodies I have carefully selected and deemed worthy enough for my clients to confidently invest in.
It should go without saying, but sadly we still live in a world where many people are still marginalised and discriminated against and may wonder if they are included in this message. I believe in inclusivity, diversity & representation to my core and will happily photograph you no matter your skin colour or ethnicity. I also believe love is love is love and if you are a LBGTQ couple, you are welcome here.
If you're not seeing yourself represented here, it's only because I've not yet had the opportunity to photograph a couple that looks like you, or I am not permitted to share the images. You are very much invited to be one of my couples and you will receive the same care, respect and experience as everyone else who books with me. I'm here for you!
