Kids photography in Lucerne
„There is joy and wonder everywhere when you see the world through the eyes of a child.”
I would love to capture the personalities of your children and make these memories last a lifetime!
Each child is special and I will adapt the session to its unique behaviour. There will be time for posed and unposed photos. The kids will be free to be themselves. The session can be designed for one or more children, making sure everybody has portraits and group photos. I love to catch their own character, the laughs, emotions, joy, complicity by trying to be part of their small world. You do not need to buy anything special, I will help you to style your wardrobe or take clothing from my stock.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME FOR A CHILDREN'S PHOTOSHOOT?
Any time! The truth is, time flies! Your kids are constantly changing and you think you’ll remember each stage as if it were just yesterday. But those memories fade, and you’ll be so thankful for photos of your children when you forget exactly how tiny those little fingers were!
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN A CHILDREN'S PHOTOSHOOT?
You can book the shooting for your kids as well as for your kids with cousins and/or friends.
DO YOU OFFER NEWBORN FOTOSHOOTINGS?
No, newborn photo shootings are normally in studios, and they require a special education about poses.
I usually take babies if they can sit on their own, normally from the age of 6-8 months. If they are younger, you can have a look in my Portfolio at the “Motherhood” or “Family” sessions or we can discuss how we could organize it.
DO YOU ALSO TAKE PHOTO OF THE KIDS WITH MUM/DAD OR THE WHOLE FAMILY?
Yes, of course! Please refer to the “Motherhood” and “Family” sessions.
HOW DO YOU ORGANISE THE CHILDREN'S PHOTOSHOOTING?
Each kid is different and so is each session.
I normally take with me a few props like vintage toys, soap bubbles, teddy bears for the little ones, it helps a lot to make the kids feel comfortable.
I watch them play and interact if the photosession consists of two or more kids and that’s how I get the most natural images.
WHAT HAPPENS IF MY CHILD DOES NOT BEHAVE WELL?
Children are children! Even if the session is well planned, a child may still not want to “play his part”.
I recommend that you as parents stay calm and don’t lose your nerves. I will find the beauty in the chaos and capture unique moments.
Of course, we can also take a short break any time, something to drink and a small snack always help.
A tip that always works: prepare a small gift for your children, that they will receive after the photoshoot if they behave well.
WHAT SHOULD WEAR MY KIDS?
As soon as your appointment is booked I will send you an Outfit Guide with color combinations, ideas and tips in how to choose the clothes.
I have a wide range of outfits and accessories for little girls (from 2 to 11 years old). If you would like to see the dresses, I will be happy to send you pictures of them.
If you want to shop before the shooting, I have collected some preferred shops for you in my guide.
WHAT DO WE NEED TO BRING TO THE KIDS SHOOTING?
I always recommend enough water and a small snack that won’t leave stains on your clothes. Mosquito spray in summer is a must!
HOW CAN WE PREPARE FOR KIDS SHOOTING?
You can quietly prepare the outfits for the whole family and send me photos so that we can find the best combination.
Hands will always be visible in the photos and in many close-up shots. Before the shoot, please check if the hands of all family members look well-groomed.
Your children should have slept well. If our planned photo shooting time slightly overlaps your kids’ afternoon nap, it’s better to postpone it a bit so that everyone has slept well.
It’s better not to make big plans or run errands the morning before the shoot.
Make sure no one comes hungry. And just have a small snack in your pocket for emergencies.
Tell the children that you organized an adventure and Sara would document it so that the family will have lovely memories for the future.
The children have to be themselves; they don’t always have to laugh or look at the camera, it’s actually best to have no instructions at all so that the shooting flows naturally and everyone has fun.
WHAT HAPPENS IF SOMEONE GETS SICK?
This happens often with children. Please take enough time to get healthy again. A photo shoot with sick children is never successful! No worries, we’ll find an alternative date.
