I shoot at any location requested. I have my own studio in Ottobrunn. During the session you can expect a relaxed and fun atmosphere. I like to get to know my clients and their personalities. So you can expect me to interact with your children so they feel relaxed throughout the session. Sometimes the best shots are taken when your child is natural and playing with mom, dad or sibling. With families and children you can expect both posed and candids pictures.
Sessions can last from 45 minutes up to 2 hours depending on the person. For newborn you can expect 2,5 hours up to 4 hours as lots of time is spend on feeding, changing and swinging. It is recommended that only those who are to be photographed be present during the session. Too many people can distract children.
From simple and classic to trendy and colourful clothing – it is a personal choice – though certain options undoubtedly photograph better than others. I prefer to shoot newborns in nude or maybe wrapped in a fabric or wearing only a headband. For maternity I recommend to wear all pre-pregnancy clothing such as tank tops, bras etc. Pregnant woman has curves and you need to show those off!
You should contact me before your baby is born. The best time for a newborn session is 7-10 days after birth. At this age of just a few days, newborns curl up easily, sleep more, and have that fresh newborn look that all-too-quickly fades.
For maternity sessions I suggest having the photo shooting during 34-36 weeks. Bellies are usually just the right size for capturing at this time.
