So, I finally decided to redo this section, it’s been too long and I feel like in the last version you really didn’t find anything out about my style or approach. I don’t really like talking about me too much, but I guess since you clicked on this tab you do want to know a little about me :)
First off, I’m glad my name didn’t scare you away, haha! I know the Z throws most people off :) And no worries, I don’t expect anybody to be able to pronounce it, if anything, I find it kind of amusing to hear people try to say it, so no worries … you’re and will not be the only one that will have troubles :) I’m sure you are curious where it came from, I was born in Poland, but grew up in Switzerland where I met my wonderful husband. :)
A little about myself. I have a great passion for photography. I guess I took pictures my whole life, I was always the one behind the (newest) camera and I always loved taking photos of my classmates / friends / co-workers / clients. As clear as my path seemed to be, I decided to try to pursue an architecture degree (I do love modern buildings). It took me a few years to realize that I was actually meant to be a photographer, it was in Boston when I decided to not finish my Master’s degree and open my own little business :)
I love working with people, I love making them smile, listen to their stories, be part of somebody’s biggest day, welcome new family members and I love combining my passion with architecture. Most of my clients turn friends in the process … no worries, I won’t be calling you on Saturday night, I have a little family of my own (3 wonderful girls that keep me busy during the day), but I always enjoy treating my clients like old lost friends, I try my very best to make you feel comfortable in front of the camera, so getting your photos taken is a nice experience for everybody – even for (future) hubby, which we all know would rather do something else :)
I hope my portfolio speaks for itself. I have bit of a mixed style, I do usually pose most of my clients, but I also love sharing (especially funny) candids from our shoot. Who would want to toss some sillies? Having 3 kiddies myself I know how important photos are. They grow so fast and it’s hard to freeze time. I don’t like setting a max number of photos I’ll share with you for exactly that reason. I will give you as many photos as I can, as I want you to remember the different smiles & expressions. At weddings I usually take well over 3000 photos and I’ll be happy to share most of them. I want YOU to pick your favorites from your biggest day / your shoot. Just in case you wonder (if you;ve never had a shoot with me done before) Yes, I touch up all my photos. Everything will be well exposed, color corrected, the skin will be nice and smooth and I’ll make sure all the walls are straight and any bold grass spots are taken care of. I want you to trust me to do my very best.
I don’t like chasing my clients and make them order prints, your galleries will be up as long as I can keep them online (my oldest galleries go back to 2005!). You get all the digital files, and I hope you will order prints, but it’s not up to me to make that decision for you. I really do not understand photographers that won’t share more than 20 files, and then you have to get prints as they don’t want you to have the digital files! I want you to have as many photos as I can give you, there is no limit. If you want me to photograph your house, I’ll try to give you as many angles as I can to make your online presence as beautiful as possible.
I am easy to reach via email whenever you want to book your session, or if you have any questions regarding a shoot or prints, I’ll be very happy to help. :) and I’ll be very happy to chat during our shoot, and might sneak a little snuggle from your baby at the end :)
