I captuRe your family living life to its fullest in switzerland.
arms full of kiddos, bellies full of laughs on the adventure of a lifetime.

preperation and planning... You got it!

When I say I take care of you, I mean it. From sending you a comprehensive Prep & Style Guide to taking charge and directing your entire session. There is no stone unturned to ensure you have all the information you need to make your session a successful one!

There's no second guessing on my watch!

Through the years, I've discovered that only a select few are born camera-savvy. Let's be honest, people don't just unfold like graceful gazelles in front of a lens. That's where I step in – armed with prompts, games, poses, and a healthy dose of silliness to capture you and your favorite humans in joyful, laugh-filled frolics. There's no "happy accident" on my website; each candid moment is meticulously set up with purpose. Forget the worry about getting it "right" – I've got that covered. My mission is to freeze genuine connections, exuberance, and fun in my photos, equipping you with the tools for swift, efficient success. You're in capable hands!

Alright, let's keep it real here (deep breath). Brace yourselves, because at some point during our session, your little ones might lose their interest. It's a universal phenomenon, and trust me, I can see it coming from a mile away (famous last words, right?). With a track record of photographing over 500 kids a year, and a solid half of them under the age of four, you can bet I've got a whole arsenal of tricks and delightful games up my sleeve to bring those kiddos back into the action. But guess what? Usually, a bit of grown-up cuddle time is all it takes before FOMO kicks in, and suddenly, they're all about joining the family snuggle. We'll capture those dreamy smiles you're hoping for, and then some – yep, even from Dad! I pinky promise!

It turns out it's fun for the whole family....honest!

quality family time together.... check, check and check!

The time you spend with me having your photos taken is time where all you need to do is simply soak up the goodness of your spouse and family. My sessions are fast paced and fun, I make sure of it! Have confidence that by the time you get to our session, you've already run the gauntlet of getting ready which is arguably the most stressful part of family photos (but not with me because I send you a guide on exactly how to prepare!). With all that nervous energy behind you, brush it off, come into the present and get ready to have a good time with me your favourite people!

I'm only too happy to chat with you about your dream family photoshoot in Switzerland. Holla at me and let's make it happen!
