In this post, you will discover the lovely baby Cali, who I had the pleasure to meet in Geneva for her newborn photoshoot. We were between girls only with Cali, her mum, her sister and her grandmother!
It has been some time since I published a photoshoot on my blog (nearly 2 months, time flies so fast!). It is not that I do not have any newborn photo session to show you, not at all! The thing is there has been a hugh amount of babies lately and I have been under the water capturing all those little and cute babies while they are “young” enough ;). I look forward to showing those babies because you will find them so cute! Every newborn has his/her own personality, even at this age and it is really always different to meet a new baby at every new baby photo session.
After having seen the lovely Inès’ pictures, let’s switch to a little boy for this new blog post about a newborn photo session :). And it is the beautiful Axel who will let you see his gorgeous baby features. I had the pleasure to meet him before this photoshoot, which is to say one day after his birth at the maternity to take his birth announcement picture. Yet, it is after some more days and Axel’s coming back to home that we made his newborn photo session at home.
I had the pleasure to meet the lovely little Inès for her Lausanne newborn photoshoot. Peacefully asleep from the beginning of the photo session, I had the time to magnify her beautiful features with her closed eyes in different poses before she woke up a little bit to show me her beautiful eyes.
The best conditions for a newborn photo session is between 4 and 15 days after your baby’s birth. That is why I always recommend parents to book their session slot during pregnancy so that the photoshoot can take place fast after your baby’s birth when he still sleeps a lot and can keep curly positions easily. Yet, it happens that, for whatever reason, the newborn photo session has to be postponed. In this case, you just have to be aware that we may have more difficulties to get the poses you see in my portfolio because your baby will sleep less and be less curly. Still, I can tell you, we will make pictures as beautiful as before 15 days of age :)! As an example, we could not make Alexandre’s photo session before 1 month-old, but I am sure you will still love his pictures :).
At LunaCat Studio, we not only photograph newborns, we also follow their evolution as babies and toddlers. I must confess I love being able to document the growth of newborns I met so early after their birth. Parents become friends as time passes by and I love being able to photograph their family as their baby grows so fast! When baby can take one’s head up, when baby can turn around, when baby is sitting alone and of course when baby walks next to mum and dad. The first year birthday is always a lovely moment with a funny smash the cake session!
