Are you planning a fun family adventure soon and want to record it in photos? Do you have a plan or just maybe a dream to take your tribe strawberry picking, on a boat trip on the lake, to Europa Park or maybe just to Geneva for the day? Are you tired of always *taking* the pictures and never *being IN* the pictures? I have great news for you! In a few months, I plan to start offering a new type of photography session for families, but first I need to build my portfolio. I’m currently looking for THREE adventurous families to plan fantastically fun family outings and take me with you! Is your heart racing yet? Then read on!
Who are you? You are an English speaking family living in or soon visiting Switzerland, preferably (but not necessarily) the Lake Geneva area. You are fun, laid back, affectionate with each other, like to laugh, and want to capture a day in the life of your family enjoying a fun adventure. You are comfortable having your photo taken, even in public. Even in front of strangers. Even in Switzerland. If you have kids, they are toddlers or older and can walk on their own. Ideally, the three families chosen will represent the diversity of people who live in and visit Switzerland. I am open to and want to attract a variety of nationalities and family compositions.
Who am I? I am an American photographer recently transplanted to Switzerland. In the US, I had a small but growing family photography business. I love nature and travel and recording my family’s life through images. I am fun and funky and friendly.
What you get. Free (no cost, no catch, no conditions) photography and professional photo editing services plus 20 free digital files to print and/or use online with the option to purchase more files. You get amazing, beautiful images of your family running, exploring, smiling, hugging, laughing and relaxing together. You will not get posed portraits. You will probably get dirty. You get a phone or Skype consultation session with me to help you prepare for your session.
What I get. Unlimited use of your images for my website, social media accounts, print materials and other business related purposes that may arise in the future. We will sign forms together. You will also complete a short survey after our session so I can learn what worked for you and what didn’t.
What’s next. Still interested? If you have a partner is he/she on board? OK! The first thing to do is look through my portfolio and my blog posts here on my website and check out my Instagram to see what my shooting and editing style is. Your images will look like that.
Still excited? Ready to jump? Then please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org by MAY 10TH that contains the following:
- Your name and the names and ages of your family members going on your adventure
- Your idea for your adventure and when it is taking place (or could take place)
- Your assurance that everyone in your family is enthusiastic about this endeavor
- Your assurance that you are OK paying for me to join you on your adventure if costs are incurred such as train fares, entrance fees, amusement park ride tickets (!) or any other associated costs.
- A recent photo of everyone who will be there.
- Where you saw the announcement that led you here.
I cannot WAIT to get started! Thank you for reading to the end (I would give you chocolate if I could). I look forward to hearing from you! xxoo Kate.
