FullSizeRender-7-4

I hope you are all enjoying watch autumn arrive (and even the glimpse of winter!)

Although I love spring, this is my favourite time of year. Despite living in Switzerland for almost 20 years now, autumn is always a little nostalgic for me and as I grew up in London, it still reminds me of trick-or-treating, bonfire night, fireworks and celebrating my birthday – all exciting things before the run-up to Christmas!

Halloween is being celebrated more and more in Switzerland every year and this time, I have decided (at short notice!) to organise a Halloween charity shoot. This will take place on Saturday 24 October from 2.30-6 pm at the studio in Baar, and I am inviting you to bring your children along to be photographed in their Halloween costumes.  Each child will receive a treat or two and of course a download of a photo (or a print) which I will select and send onto you a few days later. This will all be free of charge, but in exchange I am asking you to donate 3-4 items from the following list for refugee centres in Zurich:

  1. Scarves (Male / female)
  2. Male and female socks. (size S-L)
  3. Rain wear for adults (Size S-M)
  4. Fleece/pullovers for adults (Size S-M)
  5. Winter jackets for men (Sizes S-M) and women (Sizes S-L)
  6. Mens shoes that are appropriate for cold weather (Sizes 40-44)
  7. Children books in the following languages: German/Arabic/Farsi/Pashto (no scribbles or torn pages please)

It is very important that we only donate what is needed due to storage issues. I will be responsible for making sure your donations are taken there and distributed appropriately – more info can be found in German here:

Just to help me with planning, please let me know if you thinking of coming by (and with how many children). You are however also welcome just to pop in – the shoot will only take a few minutes for each child. Please feel free to spread the word amongst your friends too.

Just a reminder about where this takes place:

Studio Address: Gewerbe an der Lorze (Alte Spinnerei), Haldenstrasse 5, Building H18, 2nd Floor (take the stairs slowly and hold small hands tightly), 6340 Baar – or call 079 654 4115 for directions.  Please note: nearest parking space for the building entrance is the Athleticum car park (use Lorzendamm for GPS). There is a lift but its a little hidden.

Thank you! … and looking forward to seeing many scary monsters next Saturday!
