Carla's Dreamy Maternity Shoot - Basel Photographer

Carla's Dreamy Maternity Shoot - Basel Photographer

Carla has a talent for creating visual feasts for the eyes - with flowers, invitations and styling - so i was absolutely ecstatic when she asked me to take some pictures of her to remember her pregnancy. I love that we have the same taste in style and picture taking and I think we really make a good team working together to create some beautiful images. So its no surprise i absolutely adore these photos - they’re light, soft, feminine and oh so dreamy.

I kind of have a love/hate relationship with beautiful maternity pictures - as they really do speak to how incredible the journey is. How a woman’s body can nurture a tiny cell by growing a whole new organ to sustain and give energy and love to grow a whole new person. However, unlike the photos, the whole pregnancy journey is not all pretty dresses, perfect hair and flowers - its an up and down mix of emotions, lack of comfort, a whole host of weird body changes and a flurry of medical appointments but it’s really not as fun to look at those pictures! haha. While i whole-heartedly believe in, and love creating these maternity pictures (every pregnant woman needs to bask in the beauty of her body’s capabilities), I need to remind every pregnant woman out there feeling ‘less than’ (me, right now!) - that all pregnant women feel the lows and the highs. We need to sit with those lows (and know we have the strength to get through them) but we should damn-well celebrate those highs and thats what i try and do with maternity shoots!

Pirraca Family | Basel Family Photographer

I just love this family!!  Repeat clients - Raquel and Nuno are expecting their second bundle of joy and I couldn't be happier for them.  If their new baby is anything like their little girl Matilde, they're going to have one super sweet family!  

This session was so vibrant and summery! The flowers were in bloom and it was the perfect backdrop for some family time spent together.  Even Matilde got a little present surprise from her parents and I feel so lucky to have been able to capture them.  As she was opening this gift you see not only the joy from Matilde receiving the doll she wanted, but also the happiness it brought the parents.  The true joy of giving!  

If you want your own sunflower session - get in touch today!

Zivilstandsamt wedding

Luis and Silvia approached me to take some romantic portraits of them during and after their civil marriage ceremony in Basel.  These two were doing a low-key legal ceremony ahead of their big catholic ceremony but still wanted to remember this special day.  I have to say that Luis and Silvia were such a pleasure to know and photograph.  They were full of life, so relaxed and happy. It was a joy to be around them. It's when I get clients like this that I feel like i have the best job in the world.  

Weddings isn't something I usually offer, however this was more like a couple shoot with a ceremony at the start.  It's the parts of a wedding I love shooting the most so this was a pleasure to take on.  Here are my favourite shots from the day...

Caroline & John | Basel Couples Photographer

I had the pleasure of taking photos of fellow photographer Caroline and her lovely partner John last weekend.  They have a beautiful apartment in Basel - lots of light coming in with large windows and so homely with their eclectic and creative style.  Their window sill is lined with cacti, plants and treasures, there's art all over the walls and books galore - it gives me all the heart eyes!  

There's something I love about photographing people in their own home - people are more comfortable, its more personal and the outcome is more customised to them meaning the images will tell more of a story.  I think Caroline & John's photos show how much love they have for one another - the way they look at each other, how they hold hands and the laughs they share.  They've been with each other for 13 years - I think everyone hopes to still share this sort of connection to their loved ones after so long. <3

In-home sessions is something I want to do much more of in 2018.  If you want some images like this - contact me to book in!
