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.
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.
Today, let’s see the Lausanne photo shoot for babies I made for Alexis’ family, newborn baby of 9 days old for his photo session. As a new parent, we often wonder if it is worth investing in a newborn photo shoot at home. Parents hiring LunaCat Studio as a newborn photographer tell me that at first, they did not know wheither they would like the newborn photo shoot, which can be sometimes scary as your baby is fragile and so important.
But after the experience of the newborn photo shoot, that is to say seeing their baby taking the physiological poses I accompany the newborn into, and the images that bring the beauty of baby, parents area always delighted and do not regret the investment. This is something that is hard to imagine before experiencing such a photo shoot (not especially a newborn photo shoot). I do not tell you the number of parents regretting not having made a newborn photo shoot for their first baby when they come to me for their second child during the mum’s second pregnancy.
The most important “award” I receive comes from parents who recommend me to friends and family but also gift the newborn photo shoot to other expecting parents. For that, they buy a gift card (which is a lovely birth gift or even Christmas gift) so that the expecting parents can experience the newborn photo shoot with a professional photographer specialized in newborn photography, as much as they loved it themselves.
This Geneva newborn photo shoot at home is a little special. Indeed, you already know the baby of the day, Eliana, when she was in her mum’s baby bump. I have photographed the whole family for their maternity photo shoot at Geneva lake. Hiring a photographer for a pregnancy photo session before your newborn photo shoot is quite a good idea as it has multiple beneficial effects for the newborn photo session. We capture your family moments before your baby’s birth, but it is also a great opportunity for family photos when you already have children. During the maternity photo session, your children will get used to me and the camera. Therefore, it will be simpler to make family pictures with your newborns are your children already know me. Do not hesitate to invest in a maternity photo session, you will not regret it for your family’s heirloom.
