Susanne + Philippe Maternity | Basel Photographer

Susanne + Philippe are new in our apartment building and hosted an apero for their friends and tenants of our apartment building to get to know us! When I found out she was pregnant and has pretty much the same name, I took it as a sign that I should go! SO glad I did because not only are they lovely, but I also got to know quite a few others from the apartment building too! Was a really fun night!

Another pleasant surprise is that they were wanting some maternity pictures which I was more than happy to do for them. We split the shoot between indoor and outdoor and I think it gave them some great variety - we got the classic maternity portraits as well as some lifestyle shots inside the home. We also had such nice weather which was lucky because rain had become a familiar friend at that point.

I’m so looking forward to capturing their newborn soon! Our little ones will be around a month apart so it will be baby mania soon! These are my favourites from the session:

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!

Branding session for Kellie

I absolutely loved working with Kellie! She is (relatively) new to Basel and settling in after a previous life in social work back in the USA. She came to me wanting some photos to use on social media and for her blogging (which you can find at https://4passion.blog.) Since our first meeting we hit it off - she was such a stylish, positive and inspiring person to be around, so we’ve become great friends too! We ended up shooting in a few spots in Basel city as well as her apartment where I got to witness first hand her obsession with workout clothes and fun accessories. I only wish I had a collection as awesome as hers.

Apart from having a blast together, we got so many great photos, and it was so hard to pick favourites but this selection gives a great glimpse into what our shoot was like:

Romance in Bloom | Basel Photographer

I had the most amazing opportunity come my way to collaborate with some local vendors (who I absolutely love) for a beautiful shoot. I’ve been dying to share these with you for some months, but have had to keep them secret as we’ve been waiting patiently to have this photoshoot featured on the popular Hochzeit Guide. You can read the publication here.

I worked together with Carla from Festum Artis to create an incredible creative vision for this shoot. Carla designed all the floral pieces and dressed the beautiful table. Our brilliant makeup artist was Sandra from Boholicious. Can’t say enough about her beautiful artistry on our model - Paulina Urba.

The shoot took place in an old antique store in Basel. We were able to use a few corners of the house which was full of beautiful nooks and crannies. It felt magical being able to shoot there, amongst all the little treasures and aged and worn walls. It was sensual, intimate and romantic, soft and feminine yet strong and sexy.

It is my aim in everything I photograph to evoke some sort of emotion, to make the viewer feel like they are right there with me, taking a moment to pause and observe how grand the small moments are, how (sometimes imperfectly) beautiful it is. I hope you also take a moment to view this gallery and the beauty it holds!

If you ever want to be the subject of a beautiful moment - contact me for your own shoot!

This lovely lady is gorgeous on the inside and out.  I absolutely adore photographing her (who wouldn't!?). Raluca is someone I can get creative with, have fun and see some beautiful moments captured.  We were faced with some challenges on this day - a threatening storm and some seriously crazy winds!! 

I am so proud of this set of images.  These are the types of images i live for and the reason i love photography so much - it makes you feel something!
