ursi + michel . switzerland . beloved






















I photographed this beloved session of Ursi and Michel (plus their dogs miro and sheela) when I was traveling through Europe in July. These four live in Switzerland and contacted me for a beloved portrait shoot when they heard I was coming through their beautiful country. Michael and I spent a few days with them at their house, they drove us all up and down the mountains in Switzerland showing us what their beautiful country is all about. We had a barbecue picnic on the side of a little creek which was one of my favorite parts of our whole trip. Ursi and Michel are such warm hearted, generous, beautiful people. This beloved shoot was taken over two days. It was such an honor and pleasure to meet, spend time with and to photograph them. ♥
