Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHER ARE YOU? My work has been described as authentic, natural, sentimental and joyous! I love my images to show movement, love, laughter and fun combine with the amazing backdrops we have available to us here in Switzerland. As your photographer, I will provide a generous gallery of images that can be displayed in your home as pieces of art or archived in a custom album to be treasured for generations. These photographs will be an investment in your family history and the images from your session often tell a story, capturing a treasured moment in time.

WHERE WILL MY SESSION BE HELD? I am a natural light, on location photographer. Together we will choose the perfect location for your session be it in one of our brilliant cities or the spectacular Swiss Alps.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR? I'll be sending you a link to a detailed What to Wear guide once you have booked to give you plenty of ideas of what to wear and how to get ready for your session. You can also see my PINTREST boards to kick start your looks. Most importantly: Be comfortable, be yourself.

WILL I GET MY DIGITAL PHOTOS AFTER THE SHOOT? Photographs grow in value over time and become family treasures. I know the importance of archiving and saving digital images. I offer one simple, all-inclusive collection where you receive all the high resolution digital files delivered via direct download and a print release. A minimum of 75 digitals files will be available to you (but usually there are more!), in both colour and black and white. You will also have the option to buy additional prints and boutique products.

WHEN, HOW AND WHERE CAN I BUY ADDITIONAL PHOTOS AND PRODUCTS? Inside your private online gallery you can purchase additional prints or other boutique products.

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE WHICH IMAGES IN MY GALLERY FROM OUR SHOOT? I look at each and every image I capture at your session and hand select the best images. I am looking for images that represent me as an artist and your family, as each is radically unique. I guarantee minimum of 75 images, but there are usually many more included. Lucky you!

HOW FAR OUT ARE YOU BOOKED? I typically book one to three months in advance.

DO YOU OFFER MINI-SESSIONS? Yes. Mini-sessions are perfect for those families wanting a quick update to complement their annual session. They are offered to existing clients and members of my mailing list. So if minis are more of your jam, be sure to sign up for my mailing list below!

Total cost for sessions in other Swiss Cities is CHF 1000 for family and couple sessions.

How to book

Sessions take place on week day evenings and weekends. They are usually scheduled near sunrise and sunset however we can shoot almost any time of day that suits, but the light does play a huge part in the results. Dates will be reserved by submitting a completed contract and a retainer of Fr.250.

It is always lovely to connect before booking your date regardless of how we get in touch: via email, a phone call, or a skype chat. Shoot me an email, let's set up a time to chat and really hammer out the details of your shoot! I can't wait to work with you and document your lives in the most spontaneous, joyful, fun filled, authentic way!
