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!

October in the park

.. can be a dangerously cold event. If you are there already at 08.30 on a clear morning. The weather promised beautifully sunny, but none of us were prepared that it would only be 5° C that morning. The park was beautiful with changing leaves and pure stillness, and we had it all to ourselves. PERFECT. Just a little chilly. Keeping after 3-year old H was a challenge, if you want sharp photos that is. It was easier with little H, she was less mobile. After 30 minutes when big sister kept asking to go in to the café (which was still closed), we decided to meet up again in the afternoon when it would be warmer, for the rest of the session.
In the afternoon we no longer had the park to ourselves, but we found a few corners to take some colorful pictures. Gorgeous girls, and gorgeous parents.
Old town shoot

A great way to have keepsake memories of a place you lived in for a few years, is to have a photo session right in the middle of it. Later, looking back at the pictures reminds you of the place and the time you spent there. reminiscing of an earlier time.. when the kids were small….
This lovely family wanted to have pictures taken in the city of Basel, to have as a keepsake for whenever they may return to their native land half way around the world, or move on to a new adventure somewhere else. It was a joy to spend a few hours with them in the old town and attempt to catch their 3-year-old daughter just at the right moment for a nice capture. And also of the gorgeous little brother of fives months, whenever he happened to look my way that is. He seemed to just try to figure out what we were doing the whole time. His expression often said just that!
I soooo enjoyed the afternoon with you all, and I am looking forward to taking a few more photos when little bro is ready to sit on his own! 🙂

Wedding K & M

‘The real names are kept secret to protect the innocent’, as the old saying goes.
It was a wonderful start to the day, partly sunny, cool, relaxed and joyful. We met the wedding couple outside their apartment early, which gave us plenty of time to make photographs on the way to the wedding and apéro location. The pictures tell the story…

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.

This past week, we were again amazed by the majesty of the Swiss Alps. A week in the snow and sun.
For a photographer, a great challenge to deal with extreme contrasts. Here are a few pictures to give you the feel, if they can in any way. No comparison of being there in person though. Get yourself in a car, train, aircraft, however…, and head a few miles high!
It looks like my external hard drive just decided to step out on me, so the winter wonderland photos will have to end here for the time being. I wish those of you living in the northern hemisphere a wonderful rest of the winter, and to the rest of you; it’s on its way..
