It is time for YOU and YOUR FAMILY now. We live surrounded by love, joy, laughs, first steps, first teeth and it can be a bit overwhelming sometimes. They do grow and change so fast!
I want to capture these moments for you, keep them in beautiful photos and remember them forever. Beautiful art that you will love to display at your home.
The first step is to get to know your wishes and expectations. What are the colors you love? What final result are we shooting for?
At this stage, I want to get to know the details of your session. We can talk on the phone, in person, or via email.
I want to get to know as many details from you as possible, so I can plan the session accordingly.
WHAT "look" am I going for?
WHY do I want these photos now?
What do I want them to do with them? As wall art displayed at my home? In a beautiful photo album?
Have you ever asked yourself these questions? No? Now it is the right time to do that. I will have to choose the right colors and style that would suit your wishes and your session.
The session can be stressful, worrying if your kids will behave well, convincing your husband that the session will be "quick and not so bad", finding the right clothes & keeping them clean for the session.
I promise you a stress-free session. I love happy, active kids. Let them be kids. I am relaxed and love having fun. As much as I love to take posed portraits I love to catch those spontaneous moments of your kids interacting with each other and with you.
When you arrive you will have time to get ready for the session and your kids the time to get families with the studio or the location where we will shoot.I plan the session according to the type of session and ages of the participants.
2-3 days after the session you receive a link to your private online gallery where you can choose your photos and order other products. Editing of my images is as important for me as taking the photos. The final magic happens during the editing process later.
After the session, you can check your photos in your private online gallery. The gallery will include between 10 - 30 photos, depending on the type of the session.
At the warmth of your home, you can choose your products, prints, and digital photos. We can discuss all the options and possibilities to create products for you you will love.
WHAT DOES 1 LOOK OR 2-3- LOOKS MEAN?
My packages mention options of a number of looks. 1 look is for example - 1 outfit & background. 2 - 3 looks - 2 outfits with 2 backgrounds or 3 outfits with 1 background. So the number of looks don't tell how the number of setups but the number of dresses and backgrounds that create the looks.
WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?
It depends on the look you want to achieve. I recommend no busy prints or texts. The family photos look the best when you all wear matching colors. You can discuss the colors and backgrounds with me, so we create a perfect match.
WHY DON’T YOU RELEASE ALL OF THE PHOTOS YOU TAKE?
Taking the photos is just half of the work done. All my RAW files are edited after the session. It can take from 1 - 3 hours to edit one gallery. You will get to see only the edited final gallery, my finished product that I want you to see.
CAN I BORROW SOME MATERNITY GOWNS OR FABRICS?
Sure. There are no extra costs for borrowing any of the dresses from the collection.
CAN I HAVE PROFESSIONAL MAKEUP DONE AND MY HAIR STYLED?
I work together with amazing makeup artists and hair stylists. There are additional costs of 60 euro(per person) for adding these services to your session.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO TAKE MATERNITY PHOTOS?
The best time to take pregnancy photos is around 30 weeks. It is the time when your belly is nicely round and you should feel good.
WHAT IF I NEED TO RESCHEDULE OR CANCEL MY APPOINTMENT?
If you cannot make it to the session for a health or other reason we can reschedule your session. If you need to cancel your session we can have a look at the options.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL I RECEIVE?
It depends on the package you choose. Shorter sessions will include fewer photos in the final gallery to choose from. You will always have enough photos included in your gallery to choose from. Every package includes a different amount of digital photos.
WHY DO YOU RECOMMEND THAT I PRINT THROUGH YOU?
I guarantee professional quality print. The printing companies I work with have excellent quality, all prints are checked also by me before I deliver them to you. Sometimes prints can look different than digital files, not sharp enough or different in the colors.
WHAT TIME OF DAY SHOULD WE SCHEDULE THE SHOOT?
A newborn session is mostly planned for the weekend in the morning around 930. Baby session/ cake smash or family session when small children are coming, then I recommend planning the session around your baby's schedule. You as a mom know the best when your baby is the happiest.
WHEN WILL I RECEIVE MY PHOTOS?
Up to 3 days after the photo shoot you will receive a link to your private online gallery where you can choose your photos from.
