Meet Sandra Shinn and Nichole Zurcher

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sandra Shinn and Nichole Zurcher.  

Hi Sandra and Nichole, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
We’re a sister photography team with an eye for creativity. 

Nichole and I have always had an interest in photography, starting with when Nichole was 17 and purchasing her first camera. These days, Nichole is 31 and Sandra is 29 — Quite a long time for both of us to have ventured off and now to come back to photography, and to do so on a professional basis! 

As for our company… We are sisters who both just so happen to be Geminis (and we love zodiac fun), and thus, Gemini Photography was born! We officially launched our business in January of 2022, and while we are a newer company, we have enjoyed the support of our communities so far. Gemini Photography has taken off much quicker than we expected, and we are just so grateful and excited. We both are looking forward to our continued growth. 

Together we offer photography services for families, brands, seniors, couples, weddings, boudoir, pets, and more. 

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Our biggest hurdle so far has truly been keeping up with our inquiries, and we consider that a good problem to have. We are so grateful for the support we have received and welcome our continued growth.

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about what you do?
We both consider ourselves creatives, and therefore we love to work with others to bring their visions to life through our photography and storytelling. The Gemini Zodiac Sign is well known for its versatility and creativity, and that’s exactly what we bring to the table. Together, we offer photography services for Families, Brands, Seniors, Maternity, Lifestyle newborns, boudoirs, Weddings, Elopements, and More! 

We are different from your average photographer in that we are a sister team — Two photographers using two different lenses during our photoshoots to capture different angles and creative shots. We also love that this allows us to not have to specialize in one specific type of photography. It is so much fun for us to provide a variety of services instead. 

Networking and finding a mentor can have such a positive impact on one’s life and career. Any advice?
Networking is essential! We absolutely love engaging with our sphere — our friends and family, our community groups on Facebook, and our professional networking groups to grow our business. You can never know too many people who are ready and willing to help support you and keep you top of mind.
