Pregnancy photography in Lucerne
„Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.”
Just when you think you know love, something little comes along to remind just how big it really is. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first or fifth baby, the maternity is always a special moment and deserves to be remembered.
You can choose to have an intimate session or come with your partner and/or with your kids if you have any. The best period is between the 27th and 34th week.
If you would like to receive more information about the session, follow the link below.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME FOR A PREGNANCY PHOTO SHOOT?
Sessions are best scheduled between weeks 27 and 34, depending on how your pregnancy is going.
It’s also the time when the baby belly is already very visible, but it is not too exhausting as in the advanced pregnancy phase.
I really wouldn’t wait until the last moment to take pregnancy photos. Better sooner than later.
WHO CAN PARTICIPATE IN A FAMILY PHOTOSHOOT?
In a pregnancy photo shoot, you are the center of attention, but you can choose to have an intimate session coming alone or share some shots with your partner or husband and/or with kids if you have already.
DO I NEED EXPERIENCE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA FOR THE PREGNANCY SHOOTING?
Don’t worry. I will guide you through the photo shoot to have natural phots of your pregnancy. A relaxed atmosphere during the shooting will contribute to it.
HOW DO YOU ORGANIZE A PREGNANCY PHOTOSHOOT?
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/partner interact with each other (if you come with your family).
You can be completely relaxed, I will guide you.
I take pictures of you alone, of you with your partner, of the whole family, and some pictures of the children with you.
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR IN MY PREGNANCY 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 I NEED TO BRING TO MY PREGNANCY 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!
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.
HOW CAN I PREPARE FOR MY PREGNANCY 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.
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.
