The ultimate leaving gift to yourself – a photo session in Zurich to mark your time in Switzerland

There are so many families in Zürich and Switzerland that came here to live a wonderful life, some of them forever, some just for a period.

I photograph a lot of expat families that are here on a temporary basis only. We capture their favourite places, some sights of Zurich and even their home to remember their time in Switzerland.

We usually spent about 2 hours together, walking around the old town of Zurich (or other favourite places) and revisiting all those memories.

We are so glad we had found the time to do this as we would have definitely regretted it if we hadn’t.

During the shoot, I felt connected with my family and enjoyed the morning exploring Zurich.

For my international clients who often move on to live in different countries, a photo session provides such treasured memories of their life in the beautiful surroundings in Switzerland.

The families will then receive a wonderful album with all the images in it that we’ve captured on the day. So they can view those lovely memories, again and again, to keep them alive.

And did I mention that the album also comes with smaller versions for the grandparents? Oh, they love those, with their family being so far away. Makes the best gift ever!

This family was moving continents, leaving Switzerland behind, and wanted to capture their last days in Zurich. So we took a stroll around the Old Town, ticking off lots of the sights that usually tourists visit.

We saw some familiar and unfamiliar places and it was great to capture them all. Even the kids had lots of fun dancing around and splashing in the river with their feet.

The reveal session was our favourite part. We were so amazed at how well the moments were captured and presented. We almost wanted to book in for another session 🙂

I loved the feedback from this family! That’s what a family session is about: finding time for each other, connecting and making heart-warming memories that can be viewed and enjoyed together over and over again.

And finding this time especially when you are in the middle of moving countries.

So, if you are moving soon, and haven’t got any photos of all of you together during your stay in beautiful Switzerland, get in touch today to make it happen.

And if you absolutely love the Swiss Alps, we can even climb a mountain together!

Much love, Kati
