New parents often ask me what is the best age for baby photos for their baby. As a photographer specialized in childbirth and baby, I can tell you there are different ways of deciding over a baby photo shoot according to your baby’s age. In fact, it all depends on your wishes but I can only advise you on making multiple baby photo shoots following baby’s growth to see how much your baby has grown during the first years of life. In this post, I will explain you what are the various baby photo shoots according to your baby’s age so that you can decide, by yourself, what is the best age for baby photos.
Often, I get asked if I make a baby photo shoot in Lausanne at home or in my studio. As a newborn photographer, my photo work that you see on this website is exclusively made at parents’ home so that baby and her parents enjoy stress-free and comfortable family home for this baby photo shoot. It is even more true for siblings, brothers and sisters who, after family pictures during the baby photo session, can go back to their occupations without problem.
As a professional Geneva photographer, I travel a lot in the whole French-speaking part of Switzerland and I love discovering new places, such as this Geneva photo session with a family at the Parc des Bastions in the Geneva center. The beautiful family of the day wanted a family portrait session at the Parc des Bastions in Geneva as it representsa special place to the new parents. Indeed, it is at the Bastions parc that mum and dad met together. A great love story was born and started in Geneva. After their baby’s birth, parents naturally wanted family portraits to be made in the heart of Geneva at the parc des Bastions to keep on recording important family events.
It is better making the baby photo shoot in the first days after baby’s birth for an optimal newborn photo session at home. But sometimes, there are cases when, even booked during pregnancy, the newborn photo session is made later than planned. In Monira’s case, I met her 6 weeks after her birth, simply because her parents were in Montreux on the Geneva lakeside for their holidays.
In the title, I put the mention of a 1 month baby photo shoot but it is in fast a 1 and a half month baby photo session but it would have been too long for a title ;). Starting 1 month old baby, your baby sleeps less (it is already the case after 15 days of life to be more precise) and it gives us less freedom for the photo poses. لعبة بلبل It is therefore why the newborn photo session is best done before 1 month old but can be made after 1 month old with special modifications of the poses following your baby flexibility and liking.
Autumn is the perfect time for gorgeous outdoor family pictures. LunaCat Studio has already been offering family mini photo sessions in autumn for some years, only for families having already made a photo shoot with LunaCat Studio (newborn, baby, pregnancy and family). Starting this year, as many requests have been made for a family mini photo session, LunaCat Studio opens bookings for outdoor family mini photo sessions to all families, either already a client or not at LunaCat Studio. لعبة بوكر تكساس
As you know it, I am a newborn photography specialist. Anyway, my expertise in photography does not stop at this early stage of your baby’s life as I also offer baby photo sessions at different stages of baby growth: when baby holds her head on the tummy, when baby stays seated and when your baby starts walking. Each baby is unique and growth at her own’s path, there is therefore no specific month to schedule a baby photoshoot and everything depends on baby with every moment of her first year worth being captured with baby photography.
Of course, these baby photoshoots are, also for me, special moments that I treasure. I feel truly thankful to families who welcome me for a newborn photo session at home and I measure my luck when they hire me again to create gorgeous images for their family heirloom. And everytime, what a shock to see baby again and how much she/he has grown and changed while keeping newborn features from the newborn photo session.
