What do I have to consider if I want to have a pregnancy shooting?
It's best to get in touch with me early in your pregnancy so that I can arrange an appointment between the 28th and 35th week of pregnancy so that your belly is already nice and big, but the shooting is not too difficult for you.
I will provide you with special dresses from my collection, which are specially made for the shooting.
Your partner or existing children are of course welcome to come to the shooting.
What do I have to consider if I want to have pictures of my newborn baby?
It is best if you get in touch with me during your pregnancy so that I can note down your delivery date and reserve time for you and your baby around this date.
As soon as your baby is born, you can contact me again so that we can arrange a definite date for the shooting. As I will be guided by your baby's wishes during the shoot, it can take between 2-3 hours, so please be patient and bring a lot of time with you and do not make any further appointments on this day.
During the shooting we will of course take a break from time to time to cuddle or breastfeed. If you are not breastfeeding, make sure you bring enough food for your baby. Experience shows that the little ones carry more than you are normally used to during the shoot.
If there are already siblings who are coming to the shooting, we will start with the sibling and family pictures, so that we hopefully still have some good-humoured children who will be happy to come. I recommend that the daddy does something with the siblings or goes home with them so that you can concentrate on your baby.
Can the pictures also be taken outside in nature?
Yes of course, especially during a pregnancy shooting an outdoor shooting is something wonderful. However, the newborn shooting takes place exclusively in my studio.
If you want to take your pregnancy pictures outside, we usually arrange two appointments, so that there is already a date for postponement if the first appointment cannot be carried out due to weather conditions.
The outdoor shooting usually takes place at a location in the region of Oberhof and surroundings, which is suggested by me and which is suitable for the season and vegetation. If you want to do the shooting at a special place for you, that's no problem, in this case I charge CHF 1.00 per kilometer.
What happens after the shooting?
After the shooting it takes about 2-3 weeks until I have finished your selection gallery.
I take a lot of time for the selection and processing of your pictures, because I want them to be small works of art.
When your selection gallery is ready, you will receive the appropriate login data from me, so that you can make your selection from the comfort of your own home.
You have the possibility to choose between single pictures, for which you receive the digital file as a gift, or whole favourite collections. If you choose a favourite collection you will receive all the pictures in the gallery, plus your chosen favourite product. So you have the choice to buy either single pictures in 13x19 cm or a favourite collection.
Your favourite collection will be sent directly to your home approx. 7-14 days after ordering, unless you want to come and pick it up at my place, which is of course also possible.
Do I get all the pictures from the shooting?
After your shooting I will carefully select the best pictures and put them in your selection gallery for you. The remaining pictures, which do not meet my quality standards, will be deleted.
As a matter of principle, I do not submit raw material or unedited images.
Can I still buy pictures later?
Yes, of course. If you would like to buy more pictures or a favourite collection at a later date, I can provide you with an online gallery where you can choose your pictures.
You will then receive them sent directly to your home.
Will my pictures be published?
Whether your pictures may be published by me or not is of course entirely up to you.
However, since it is a very important point for me to be able to show pictures, because without pictures I cannot present my work and without this you would not have become aware of my work either, I am of course always very happy when I receive the right to publish.
Of course I publish your pictures anonymously, moreover it is especially with babies that they change unbelievably fast in a short time, so that mostly it is not traceable which child belongs to whom.
So you can indicate on the booking form whether you want to give me the right to publish or not.
