Hello and welcome to Carmen.photo. I’m glad you stopped by.

I am Carmen, a professional photographer based in Zurich. As a professional woman and a mother of two, I know how quickly time flies, and I seek to capture precious moments to be cherished as long-lasting memories. 

I specialize in Personal Branding and Family/children portraits and love to tell a story through my photos about the people I meet and the places I visit.

Many people have the common misconception that they can no longer look handsome or beautiful with a bit of extra weight, one or two wrinkles, or maybe a few strands of grey hair. These slight “imperfections” don’t make you seem any less attractive or memorable, on the contrary- wrinkles mean you’ve laughed, grey hair means you’ve cared and scars mean you’ve lived.

My job as a photographer is not only to bring out your beauty, but the stories and memories you’ve lived through.

I can’t wait to capture YOUR own personality and precious moments through photography.

Personal branding

Personal branding goes beyond a simple headshot, but rather, it delivers an entire reflection of you, and what you stand for. While any photographer can take a headshot, it takes a specialist to capture meaningful brand imagery.

That’s where I can help you.
In today’s world, your digital presence is prominent. It takes people less than a second to form an opinion of you, and your photo is the first thing they see.

I’m an experienced brand portrait photographer who can help you expand your business presence through personal branding photo shoots, taking your demands and desires into account, and delivering images that truly represent YOU.

First birthday sessions

When should you book a First Birthday session?

It’s best to schedule the photo session when the child is between 11- 14 months old.
What will the First Birthday Session look like?

STUDIO PORTRAITS OF YOUR CHILD: First, we will have some photos with your baby dressed in festive clothes, on his/her own and together with you, the parents (and siblings, if there are any).

CHILD AT PLAY – CAKE SMASH : Then the FUN begins! The baby can do whatever she/ he wants: taste the cake, play with it, and even SMASH the cake.

Every child is different and the joy is in capturing his/her unique ways of celebrating a special life moment, to cherish for years to come. And don’t worry about the baby eating too much sugar—most kids are too busy playing to eat too much!

Family and children

I will Capture Memories that will Live On Throughout The Generations and put a smile on your family´s faces whenever they see them!

Whether you’re a new family of three, recently added a new member or are simply savoring this amazing time in your children’s lives, any time is a perfect one for a portrait session. As the expression goes, “the days are long, but the years short”—time goes by so quickly and it’s essential that parents capture these beautiful moments before they’re gone.

Many families even opt for multiple photo shoots in a year!

If You Think That Getting A Photo With Your Family And Children Is Stressful, Hard To Organize, Or Even Inconvenient, Forget It!

I know how stressful it can be to get a family portrait done, but it doesn’t have to be that way!
I’ve been doing this for a long time, kids showing off a little attitude, smiling wide, or getting giggly…

It is normal! And it’s not something to be worried about, I actually like it, because it means I can capture their true personalities.

Celebrate your femininity

If you have selected this tab, you want to see yourself in a new light. Might 2022 be the year when you reinvent yourself? Or at least smarten your image? Or perhaps you feel something’s amiss. Your children are grown up. Or your relationship feels less vibrant. Or perhaps, it’s something more deep-rooted. At any rate, however you feel, you detect that your sense of identity is less clear, maybe even shifting. It’s both discomfort and an opportunity.

Carmen made really great pictures of my event. She accepted my request on a very short notice. It was super easy to communicate with her about the details. Photoshooting was seemless. I like how Carmen captures the moments, and that the pictures are bright, and full of life and emotions. Thanks for your great work, Carmen!

I worked with Carmen at an offsite meeting, where she made use of the spaces, colours, lighting and garden that were available to take a wide variety of headshots for me. She made the whole thing fun, even easy and I soon felt natural and comfortable in front of the camera. The process of seeing the full selection of photos, choosing my favourites, editing and receiving them was seemless, and fast! I can highly recommend working with Carmen.

Carmen is very considerate. She was giving me clear instructions during posing that helped to reflect my mood and personality on the photos, anf now I look like the best version of myself on those!

Ich empfehle Carmen sehr, weil meine Erfahrung mit ihr von Anfang bis Ende von hoher Qualität war. Zuallererst hat sich Carmen die Zeit genommen, meinen beruflichen Kontext zu verstehen. Sie war in der Lage, Outdoor-Locations zu wählen, die sowohl originell als auch dem Anlass angemessen waren. Wir haben auch in ihrem Studio gearbeitet, um eine große Auswahl an Fotos zu haben. Carmen nimmt sich Zeit, und ich konnte mich entspannen und natürlich sein: Diese Serie professioneller Fotos ist die beste meiner Karriere! Carmen hat mir sehr schnell die besten Fotos geschickt, so dass ich ein halbes Dutzend auswählen konnte. Vielen Dank liebe Carmen!
