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 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.
Again, some newborn photo! Yes, I particularly love accompanying new parents in such an important moment as the birth of their child to create these beautiful images in the following days of baby’s birth. This time, I traveled to Nyon to photograph the little baby Elina, aged only 15 days old. At this age, your baby is already in a phase during which so many changes have occured as your baby grows so fast. For a professional photographer specialized in newborn photography, we know such a baby will sleep less and will be opening the eyes more often. Often, photographers you will contact to learn more about how a newborn photo session works will tell you the optimum period to make a photo shoot for your baby is around 4 to 12 days.
As a newborn photographer since 2010, I know how to adapt the photo shoot to older babies who are already 15 days old or even 1 month old (see examples such as Gaël’s 1 month old baby photo shoot and Alexandre’s 1 month baby photo session). A baby photo session differs therefore and can be more challenging with a baby going through colics, which happen quite usually at this time of baby growth.
Time flies so fast! The newborn photo session of Joshua has been waiting to be published on my blog for a long time but I did not have time to do so before. I have had the pleasure to meet, as a Morges photographer, Joshua and his parents for his newborn photo session at home.
What a pleasure to show you Hugo’s newborn photo shoot in Montreux. As the beautiful Jenny and her baby photo session, I could not see Hugo’s eyes open because he slept during the entire photo shooting. Even during family pictures, baby Hugo did not want to open his eyes!
Photographing a baby is a real honor for me, which I remember during every baby photo shoot. By publishing baby photos on my photography website, my blog and on social media, I measure every time how much parents are confident in my photography services and allow me to share my work with future parents so that they can see a teaser of what awaits them during a newborn photo session. A baby photo shoot is always something new, a stressful moment but also so peculiar for a mum and dad.
