FAQ

newborns

How soon after the birth would you recommend we schedule our newborn shoot ?

How long does one session lasts ?

This will depend on the package you choose and of course on the little model! You can be assured that you won’t feel rushed, our main priority is to get beautiful shots for you and your family!

Of course! You are very welcome to bring your own props / outfits / toys / etc. I will also be happy to hear your ideas on how you would like your little one to be photographed and together we will agree on the perfect theme!

What kind of props do you have available, and will I be able to choose the ones I like ?

Absolutely! I will show you a large variety of different props and backgrounds that can be used for your session! I have many different toys, hats, outfits and blankets, so your limit is your imagination!

Can parents, grandparents or siblings join during the shoot ?

Of course! Each session is unique and we will set the studio to your liking! Do let me know your ideas and I will ensure your time is used wisely!

Can I bring my pet along for the photoshoot ?

I love all kind of animals, but to ensure all equipment and props will stay allergen free, I do not allow animals in the studio.

How can we prepare for the session ?

Your little one is the star of the show, so we need to make her/him happy! Please bring a changing bag with extra nappies, formula milk if applicable, a dummy, their own favourite toy or blanket or anything else that could be helpful to keep him/her happy. It is hot in the studio, so dress lightly, summer clothes are ideal.

 

Please also remember to bring beautiful outfits for this special occasion for you and the newborn (for parents plain clothes without logos works best). In some cases the shooting may take longer then expected, so please bring some snacks and drinks with you (we also have access to a convenience store 5 mins away from the studio).

Could we arrange for the session to take place in my home ?

Absolutely! However as I cannot travel with my props/backgrounds we will need to discuss a suitable setting and requirements in order to for us to create the best photos.

Can we do an outdoor session with a newborn ?

Of course! Just be mindful of the weather conditions,
as those can be very unpredictable! Also, please be sure to arrange your own props for the photoshoot.

What happen if the little one won’t want to cooperate ?

This can of course happen sometimes and we will just need to be patient on the day; we will manage to get beautiful photos for you to enjoy!

What is the best time to photograph bumps ?

We are happy to take the photos anytime during the pregnancy that you prefer, but I would recommend to arrange your session during the 6th or 7th month of pregnancy. Your belly will be big enough to take lovely photographs and not too large to make it uncomfortable for you to move around!
