Newborn

What a great adventure welcoming a new human being to your family soon!

These first days and weeks in a newborn’s life pass by so quickly. Make sure to capture those precious memories that will last a lifetime.

To book a newborn session, please contact me prior to your due date. Newborn sessions ideally take place between 5 – 20 days of age but I do offer shootings later than that as well.

While in my studio I take good care of you and your new bundle of joy as if it was my own – with a lot of patience and enough time to capture the precious moments.

We can discuss your ideas and define your needs to find the best option for you.

Please have a look at the FAQs below to get some more information but feel free to contact me at any time.

Mini Newborn Sessions

from CHF 390

Regular Newborn Session

from CHF 510

My studio is located in Chêne-Bougeries, Switzerland, about 5 km from Geneva Old Town. Parking and public transportation are just around the corner. The studio is available by appointment only.

I want you to feel comfortable and relaxed while in my studio, this is really important for all of us.

I prefer to take images in the first two – three weeks after birth.

Newborns are still very flexible and are able to curl up and bend easily, just like in mom’s tummy. All these amazing characteristics will begin to disappear after a few short weeks.

Don’t worry! Its not too late to get great images of your bundle of joy. I shoot newborns up to eight weeks, pending availability.

BUT, you need to keep in mind that we will most likely not get the same classic newborn poses as they won’t be able to perform them. Most will be swaddled poses and parents/ siblings shots. However, you will still get adorable memories from your session.

That being said, all infants and every session are different.
If you prefer to wait a little longer I suggest a baby session from 4 – 12 months.

Regular newborn sessions can take up to 4 hours to accommodate feeding, soothing, diaper change times and comforting in between different poses and set-ups.
If possible try not to schedule any important appointment to close to our session.

When booking a newborn package, parents and sibling shots are definitely possible – I love them! Sibling shots need to be taken right at the beginning of your session. I advise that they don’t stay in the studio after as it is no big fun for them: sessions are long and the room temperature is set to around 28 degrees Celsius to keep your newborn warm and comfortable.

I use professional-grade studio lighting in the studio. I use both, flash and continuous lightning.

Not at all. My studio lights are diffused; the light is very soft. Your newborn is posed in a position so the light feathers them, not blinds them.

It depends!

First and most important is your newborn’s safety.
Photographers have a lot of tricks to achieve some of the images you see online: composite, digital backgrounds etc. and I will do my best to achieve those same effects for you when possible.

None of my sessions are improvised, all set-ups are planned in advance to ensure a smooth and safe experience.

We will discuss your wishes and thoughts prior to the session, once the session has been confirmed.

No need to bring any clothes for your newborn. We can discuss the rest of the family’s wardrobe personally and I can help you with your choices. Other things to bring to the session will be listed in a preparation email you will receive prior to your session.

I only offer a limited number of shootings per week.

Book Newborn sessions before the expected due date to ensure availability, ideally contact me 3-4 months prior to your due date.

Have a look at the newborn, baby and family sessions as well.

After booking, I will send you an agreement including all terms and conditions. I will put your due date in my calendar. As the actual birth date is uncertain I will guarantee your session up to 12 days following your initial due date. If your baby decides to come way early, I will try my best to accommodate you and your family. I would ask you to call me the day after your baby is born (even earlier if any changes need to be communicated). If you know your c-section or induction date, the session date can be booked in advance.

The deposit and signed agreement are due in the next 7 days to guarantee your booking. You will then receive a confirmation.
The retainer will be reimbursed by being deducted from your choice of package/session.

Send me a message through the contact form. I would love to chat and answer you questions directly so please indicate your phone number and the best time to reach you – I will call you back. You can also call me if you prefer: +41-(0)-787-811-235.
