Frequently Asked Questions
How do I book?
Simply give me a call or fill out the contact form and I will call you back at a time convenient for you. To secure your date and time, I will ask you to pay a session fee, which will be used as credit towards your product purchase.
Where do you live and how far do you travel?
I live in Zurich Zone 110 and I am happy to travel to your home or a favourite place of yours. The session fee includes travel within 25 km of my home. If you live further afield, I charge an additional CHF 1 per kilometre.
Do you work on weekends?
Of course! I am photographing families, so I appreciate that most parents have commitments during the week. And before you ask, no, I don’t charge extra for it.
How early in advance do I need to book?
As I am only doing a few film sessions per year, they tend to book up pretty quickly. I am generally more flexible for photography sessions and sometimes can even accommodate short notice requests.
Will you give us advice what to wear?
Most of my clients wear the clothes, in which they feel the most comfortable. It’s usually not advisable buying new clothes that fit a certain colour palette, if you then don’t feel yourself in them. But if you can’t decide, you can certainly send me photos of your ideas and I help you choose outfits on what I know will photograph well.
What if it rains on the day?
Because weather forecasts aren’t always right, I tend to wait till an hour before the shoot to make a judgement. Together we will decide if we should postpone or go ahead. However, a shoot in the light drizzle can be just as nice as the surrounding nature is much more contrasty when wet.
Kati was flexible, responsive and fantastic with my girls. She made the entire experience feel natural and like we were just hanging out as a family.
How much does it cost?
The session fee is CHF 300 and will be used as credit towards your purchase. Most clients fall in love with their images and spend around CHF 1400. Some spend less, some more. There is no obligation to spend a minimum amount.
When will our images be ready?
The choosing and preparing of your images usually takes 2 to 3 weeks. I will then be in touch to arrange the reveal session.
Family films, however, take around 6 weeks due to the intense editing time involved.
Will the session be in English or German?
I am fluent in both languages. So, whichever is more comfortable for you, is good for me. It is your experience, and I want you to have a relaxing and enjoyable time.
Do you edit all the images?
At the reveal session, you will be presented with all successful images from your session. These images have had a quick edit to correct white balance, exposure etc. Once you have chosen your favourite images, I will edit each individually, giving them the final look as part of the photography process.
Can I receive the raw, unedited photographs?
Raw or unedited images are not available for purchase. The finished product is an edited jpeg image, which is part of my artistic interpretation and the entire photography experience.
Can some of our images be delivered in black&white and colour?
I guess it’s an aesthetic choice. My style – I believe most images work either in colour or black&white, but not both. Therefore, images created in black&white are only available in black&white, and, images in colour will only be delivered in colour. However, the choice of colour and black&white images is entirely up to you. Based on my taste and experience, I usually produce a variety of each to give you an idea. but I am more than happy to accommodate your preferences. We will talk about this in the initial consultation.
