The past few weeks have consisted of EXPOS; setting up mini-studios at 2 different expos and spontaneous portraits of passersby. First, was the Women’s Expo in Zürich, which is the first of its kind here in Switzerland and a promising event which showcases women entrepreneurs and their products and services. The second was the Expat Expo in Basel, a platform for local business to assist the expat community (and others) to find schooling, helpful services and such.
At the Veronica Kiefer Photography booth, we offered mini make-up and hair make-overs and then a short portrait photography session for those who wanted to enjoy a make over and have their portrait taken. The two days of the events flew by fast = we had fun!
There was also prize drawing for a full photography session valued at CHF 350, with make-over for the winner.
And, the winner is: ~ ERIN O’BRIEN ~ Congratulations!!! We are looking forward to having you over for your portrait session.
Here are some images to give you a taste of the activity from the two events:

Recently I had the honour of photographing one part of a 40th birthday-weekend celebration. The entire weekend was planned for Melanie and her friends, some who flew in from the States especially to be with a special friend on her day. The apèro took place at Les Gareçons in Basel, where later in the evening also dinner was served for the guests. As rumour has it… the party lasted into the wee hours of the morning…
40 is a great age to welcome and celebrate. That was certainly the atmosphere of this evening.Thanks for an inspiring and fun time with you and your friends Melanie!

Last Monday, August 1st, Switzerland turned 720 years old as a confederation. Every year the 1st of August is celebrated with a huge firework show (or let’s say ‘large’, Switzerland has different dimensions than some other large countries…) launched from a ship anchored in the middle of the Rhine in downtown Basel. This year we went, as we had very a special visitor, and both she and I enjoy photographing. Here are some impressions from that day and evening.

… is in full swing. For me, spending a day with a happy (yet sometimes nervous) couple on their special days is a real pleasure. The day is full of joy, hope and LOVE. What a pleasure to enjoy a profession that full of joyous hours in the work day!
Last summer, we spent a special weekend with special friend’s at their wedding in Italy. I will start with posting some shots from there, and soon will follow photos from the weddings of this season.

Last Friday, not only did I have the honor to photograph a gala event held by the Day Away Organization in Basel, but I hemmed the tablecloths, assisted to prepare the venue, served a bit (however almost tripping in the stairs due to my long dress!) and helped to clean up afterward. I really enjoy being part of such a wonderful group of women, putting on seminars on current life issues for women, a few times a year.
This is a special event, where also men were warmly invited. Last year we celebrated our 10 th seminar with a Gala Event before Christmas which was so well received, we decided to do another such event this year. A light dinner was served at cosy dinner tables while the guests were listening to piano jazz by Oliver Friedli and all were dressed up in gala attire enjoying the gorgeous venue at the Hirzen Pavillon in Riehen by Basel, Switzerland. Snow was lightly falling outside and a fire crackling in the fireplace. Like in the movies. Heavenly!
Everyone was given a symbolic gift of salt and light as they left, as well as a free CD from Oliver himself. A truly wonderful evening it was!
