BEAUTY, WEDDING, FAMILY, PREGNANCY, CHILDREN, SUCCESS CELEBRATION OR JUST BECAUSE
Former painter – today photographer! The art of photography has an exceptional meaning to me. To create a picture of you that is timeless, one that will still fascinate you in 20 years – that is my goal. Don’t worry: I am not an art historian and certainly not old-fashioned. My style follows the most modern trends in contemporary portraits and is current, emotional and full of vitality.
I make it fun and easy because my belief is that is not your job to be photogenic and right in front of the camera, it’s my job as a photographer to guide you through the entire photoshoot.

Mascha came for a business headshot, applying for her first job after internship. Her beauty inspired me for some beauty portraits as well. After seeing her beauty in these portraits, she told me she feels much more confident in herself snd in her femininity.
A very touching letter from my dear friend and client. Photos are legacy. Something our family will want to hold in their hands in 20 years. What will they see?
"...diagnosed with aggressive and incurable brain cancer. The outlook is grim, but we are all, as a family, not allowing ourselves to get swallowed up by grief that is not yet upon us. Instead, we are intent on making memories with and of him - silly & fun & happy memories - ones that we can reflect on in times to come. Many of your photos are on display around the house, but the 2 I love the most are the ones of all of us 6 & the ones of my parents. I smile every time I look at them & will do that forever. They are so loved, I am even making copies for Freya and Eti.
Thank you, my lovely friend - little did we know how lucky I am to have these -forever. "
"To my dear Ruxi I wanted you to write to you old school snail mail as I wanted to make this more personal & hopefully a memento you will keep for a while. Photos are treasured snapshots of moments in time. It was meant to be that our photoshoot was postponed until my parents were here. It was a glorious day, funny and sunny - both the weather and you 🙂
The photos are now even more special and treasured as m dad, my hero, adviser, mentor and confidant amongst other things has recently been ....

The definition of happiness varies a lot, but there is one simple secret to finding it. To find your bliss, all you need to do is look inside of you. It is in you. You have the answers. You just need to pay close attention.
In a world so obsessed with apparent perfection, it’s difficult to feel worthy while bombarded with imagery of filtered, retouched bodies, and faces vacant of any genuine emotion. We often let the media govern how we perceive ourselves, and we let trends make decisions for us, all the while foregoing our well-earned right to forge our own happiness and our own self-image. Well, we all know it, WE SHOULDN`T.
We are our only measure of beauty. Each one of us are one of a kind, with all the freckles, smile-caused lines, and belly folds.
And there are ways to celebrate your beauty one choice at a time.
Where do you smile the most often? What causes you to smile? What do you often talk about? What excites you the most? What do you enjoy doing for long periods of time without feeling tired or bored? What do you often fantasize about? * * * * * #xt4 #zürich #inspiringwomen #zürichcity #naturalbeauty #portraitfotografie #fotostudiozürich #fotoshootingzurih #timelessphotographyruxi #beauty #findyourself #loveyourself #motivation #nourishyoursoul #peace #selfcare #selfcareroutine #selfcaretips #selfcompassion #selfdevelopment #selflove #selfloveclub #selflovematters #selflovery #strongertogether #spiritualawakening #personalgrowth❤️ #zürichsee #zürichseefeld #photographerzürich
What does it really mean to love and care for yourself to you?
A warm bath or pampering myself with a massage or manicure? Sure! Yet, the elusive self-love that I seek requires something deeper than anything we can treat ourselves with.
Isn`t it Self-love finding peace within ourselves — being content and comfortable within the depths of our being. While temporary respite by doing something to nurture ourselves feels nice, still a deeper inner peace requires cultivating a certain way of being with ourselves: a warm and nurturing attitude toward what I experience inside myself.
👋 being gentle with myself 👋 allowing my experience to just be what they are 👋 accept I can`t always know or understand everything (when what I feel is vague or fuzzy to pause and make room for ambiguity and patiently welcome the blurry, vague feelings, allow them to gradually come into clearer focus) 👋 there are no bad emotions, emotions are human; Hhuman feelings are gifts to be welcomed
The creative fee for the shoot of CHF 390 and is paid upfront to save the date. It includes:
professional makeup and hairstyling based on your style,
your custom portrait session at the studio, we take the time that we need – typically 2-3 hours
up to 5 wardrobe changes,
with a reveal and purchasing session.
My pricing is straightforward. You decide which photos you want to purchase when you see your images during your personal vernissage. You will only buy what you love. I am always aiming for quality over quantity in my shoots.
My photo packages start at CHF 900, and they go up from there.
All photos purchased come with their corresponding high-resolution digital image.
My studio focuses on producing beautiful custom artwork that will be enjoyed for many years on display, rather than forgotten on your computer or left in a dusty drawer on a USB Drive. However, in addition to the packages, I offer complementary digitals of all finished images from your session for every sale over CHF 1200 (excluding the sitting fee).
Each shoot is unique, and I work closely with you to ensure that we create pictures that you will treasure for a lifetime.
To this day, nothing gives me more satisfaction than seeing the faces of my customers when they look at their pictures, be it a family shoot in their home or garden, in a preferred location, on a beach, at a large formal wedding or a beauty glam shoot at the studio
Would I be right for you?
It may sound crazy, but I’m not going to say that I’m everyone’s photographer – for me, it’s about being connected and being happy and relaxed when I take pictures of you. When there is an understanding between us, we can create something very special!
I grew into photography later in my career when I became the mother of our two children. It’s been fifteen years now. I am very happy to say that I love my job!
I grew into photography later in my career when I became the mother of our two children. It’s been twelve years now (the last six were full-time). I am very happy to say that I love my job!
I am a professional, trained full-time photographer, fully insured and proud of my skills in working with any kind of light. Natural light is my passion, but given some of our weather conditions, I am perfectly confident in using flash if necessary or working in my studio.
I have backup equipment (and a backup of the backup!), And I also have a circle of creatives for larger events like weddings or celebration parties, where we can do photo and video coverages.
My goal is quality already on camera instead of doing a lot of additional Photoshop work. So I trained hard to know the right angles, how to use light sources and the flattering poses that my clients will show your best. However, post-processing the images takes time, and I review each one to make sure it’s optimal before I can look at the images or show them to customers.
