HOW DOES A NEWBORN SHOOTING PROCEED?
I always take enough time for newborn shootings because it is very important to me that all family members feel more than comfortable. Under time pressure no beautiful pictures can be created. If older siblings are involved, it usually takes some more time because the new situation is not always easy for them; they need more attention and love than usual and sometimes do not want to participate immediately. Of course, you can always take time to breastfeed or give a bottle during the shoot. If you wish, I will also be happy to capture these moments, otherwise I will leave you and your baby in peace and wait until you are ready again.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME FOR A NEWBORN SHOOTING?
The best time for a newborn shoot is between the 2nd and 4th week of life, but even later (up to the 8th week of life) you can shoot very nice pictures. Afterwards, of course, very nice memories can be captured as well, you will then have a baby shooting.
WHEN SHOULD I MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?
You are welcome to contact me during your pregnancy to discuss all the important details.
I will ask about your due date and plan enough time for you around this day.
When the baby is born, I will be happy to get an SMS, mail or WhatsApp. When you are at home and feeling ready, I will love to get another message to be able to make an appointment.
WHERE DOES A NEWBORN SHOOTING TAKE PLACE?
I will visit you in your house and keep capture magical memories where the baby feels best. I believe this is the best solution for the parents as well.
It is best to choose a room with enough light for the shoot, usually a sleeping room or a living room is perfect. Neutral colours are always the best.
Also, the walls behind the bed or the couch shouldn't be too "crowded". But no worries: We will look at everything together as soon as I am with you (where is the light best, are there disturbing elements, etc.).
I'll bring pretty accessories, like crochet toys, dresses, blankets and more. You don't have to prepare anything. Here you can also read my styling tips.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET THE EDITED PICTURES?
Mostly 1 week. However, you will get 1-2 edited images as a preview on the day of the shoot. If you need the pictures faster for a birth card, please report this immediately after the shoot so I will be able to fulfil your request.
WILL YOU TAKE PICTURES JUST OF THE NEWBORN?
I will take pictures of the newborn alone, but also of the newborn with mom alone, with dad alone, with older siblings and pictures of the whole family of course. Also I will take some pictures of the older siblings alone. It is a kind of lifestyle family shooting combined with a newborn shooting.
