Motherhood Photography in Lucerne
„Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory.”
I have found motherhood to be the most precious gift life has given me and I would love to memorize the beauty of this relationship for you.
It is a special session where I would like the mum to feel the beloved, special, cherished person she is. I will help you to style your and your kid(s) wardrobe to get wonderful memories that will stand still forever.
I shoot in the magical golden hour light and take the needed time to relax and appreciate the tenderness of these moments.

WHEN IS THE BEST MOMENT FOR A MOTHERHOOD FOTOSHOOTING?
Any time! Time flies and kids grow so fast, one moment you hold your baby in your arms and the next you are helping him tying his shoes.
Each moment is worth to be framed, the special bond between you and your son or daughter is something unique, the hugs, laughs, tears you share are great memories for you, them and the generations to come.
WHY IS A MOTHERHOOD FOTOSHOOTING SO IMPORTANT?
I believe motherhood should be celebrated every day. As a mum myself I understand we and our children share a special bond, a feeling of trust and unconditional love.
I also know that being a mum is challenging and we try hard to capture every moment of our child growing but we are mostly the ones who take our family/kids pictures and rarely appear on them ourselves.
With this photoshoot you can slow down, enjoy time with your child, make unforgettable memories together while I capture the unique bond between you and your kid/s. Remind them and yourself of what a special mum you are!
ARE THE MOMMY AND ME PHOTOSHOOTS ONLY FOR BABIES/SMALL CHILDREN?
Of course not! Even as a teenager, your child will always be your child!
I love to capture the unique relationship between you and your son or daughter, the unspoken moments and the precious bond you both share!
CAN DAD WITH HIS KIDS BOOK THIS KIND OF SHOOTING OR IS IT JUST FOR MUMS?
I believe fatherhood and motherhood are both equally important and special.
There is something so real and honest about fathers and children.
Their bond is unique, the connection they have playing together, the way dads teach their kids, the generosity of their hugs, how they help them in little things, their eyes looking at them with pride … all this and so much more is worth to be captured.
HOW DO YOU ORGANIZE A MOTHERHOOD PHOTOSHOOTING?
I normally start the session with some posed photos, everybody looking at the camera is the first picture I take to break the ice.
I will then explore more emotional and storytelling pictures taking a step back and simply look how you and the kids interact.
You can be completely relaxed, I will still guide you, there will be moments of joy and play, laughs and maybe some tears, let the kids be themselves making them comfortable and familiar in front of the camera.
If you have more than one kid, I will take portraits of you, both with all the kids together and with each kid separately, each one deserves a special moment with mummy.
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 WE WEAR TO OUR MOTHERHOOD SHOOTING?
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 OUR MOTHERHOOD 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!
DO YOU USE PROPS IN MOTHERHOOD PHOTOSHOOTS?
For family phootshoots I always have a blanket with me and small vintage toys. Soap bubbles are a must, the kids (and parents) love them.
For a special photo shoot with decoration (flowers, baskets, ..) you can have a look in the “Birthday” or “Children” portfolios.
HOW CAN WE PREPARE FOR OUR MOTHERHOOD 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.
