Barefoot in the grass

September 19, 2012 § Leave a comment

…is one of the most relaxing feelings I know.  I think this love of barefootness started when I was a child and moved to Sweden. The grass there was soft and welcoming, not like the thick perfectly trimmed Houston outdoor-carpets which actually hurt when you walked or sat in it (wearing shorts). No bare feet there, the risk of cutting your feet was too high.

I also believe that running around barefoot makes people feel more free and relaxed. Kids just take off and do their thing. That’s when I do my best to run after and catch a shot or two of how each child enjoys that barefoot feeling.  Thanks to Ian and his family, for letting me be part of their barefoot afternoon in the park!

Welcoming 40

July 8, 2012 § Leave a comment

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!
